Quick And Stylish Ways To Store Your Laundry Basket

There are many ways to store your laundry at home. You have to find the one that works best for you. How and where you store your laundry baskets depends on how your house is set up and what your family needs. 

Doing laundry can feel like an endless task. There are breaks between loads of clothes, sheets, and towels. You may have learned to hide your laundry room behind a door or put it in a closet so you don't have to think about it. But if dirty clothes are in baskets and hampers all over the house, it's still easy to see that you have a big job. Suppose you want to keep your home neat and don't want to see dirty clothes here and there. Then we are here with the ideas to store your laundry baskets or laundry hampers. 

Conceal in a Cabinet 

One of the ways to cover up baskets is by using cabinets in your laundry room. If you are designing a laundry room from scratch, you should ask your architect and contractor to make the in-built cabins where you can put your laundry baskets. 

A hidden hamper slides out from the cabinet when you open it. If you are the handy type, you can handle this with an existing cabinet. You should consider it similar to a garbage can hidden in a kitchen cabinet, but with dirty T-shirts instead of trash.

Hide in Plain View

If you like the idea of hidden laundry basket storage but want to wait to remodel it, look for a piece of furniture to hide your hamper instead. These freestanding cabinets can be as wide or tall as space allows. Find the right style and size for your space, considering the number of hampers you'll need to include. 

Some smaller, narrow units will fit in a bathroom but only have one hidden basket. Others are larger and have two or three compartments, allowing for storage in a hallway. Place decorative items on the surface, and your guests will be none the wiser.

For Cubbies, Use A Central Hub

Even though this method of storing laundry baskets could be more discreet, it keeps all of the hampers in the house in one place, which helps to keep things tidy. Measure the height, width, and depth of open shelves you already have, whether in your laundry room or a separate storage piece like a bookcase. Find the right-sized baskets and place them on the shelves. Label each basket, so it's clear who owns what, which is for towels, and which is for sheets. If the hampers are made of fabric, use a clip-on label or consider having them monogrammed. Label plastic baskets with simple label tape, or label the shelf if you move them around.

Bottom Line 

A basket on a wheel can make doing laundry a bit less tedious. You should find a few hampers with casters and roll them under a countertop or into closets. If you are looking for a laundry basket or hamper, get it from Great Lakes Furnishings Contact us for more information.
