When you want to get organized, choose decorative storage
baskets and boxes. You won’t have to pick between form and function to create additional space in your home.
Find a basket or decorative box that fits your space and looks good on your shelf or floor. You can easily tuck away a small box or basket on a shelf, in the corner or in a cabinet. They’re perfect for holding odds and ends, especially in a home office or child’s bedroom.
Try multi-sized decorative nesting boxes to give a cohesive look to your storage solutions. Store bulky items like shoes in the larger ones, and compact items like mittens and hats in the smaller ones.
Choose a Style That’s Practical
Whether your style is contemporary or cottage, there are baskets and boxes that fit your needs. Pick one that enhances your decor while helping you stay organized.
• Decorative wire baskets offer a rustic look. Just keep in mind they leave your personal items visible. Use them for white hand towels in the bathroom or throw blankets in the living room.
• If you’ll be moving your basket from room to room, consider its weight. Wooden baskets and boxes are a classic design but may be heavier to carry. A woven storage basket or one made of wire or fabric is a lightweight solution.
• Large wicker baskets are perfect for stuffed animals in a playroom. They’re kid-friendly and will hold up to wear and tear.
• Organize your pantry or utility cabinet with small plastic baskets. They’ll stand up to spills, and you can label them for ultimate convenience.
• To hide clutter, pick a storage basket with a lid. The topper will also provide a surface for stacking other baskets or items.
