The Best Laundry Baskets That Are Stylish and Functional
Stay on top of the endless task of laundry with hampers and baskets that add function and style to your home.
It's the chore that never goes away. But that doesn't mean we can't take on our laundry piles with stylish baskets and hampers that bring a little bit of joy to the daily grind.
Choosing the Best Laundry Hamper
Whether you're looking for a bin that helps you sort your darks and lights, is easy to tote around or simply contains clothing clutter in style, we've found laundry hampers and baskets that'll help you make sense of socks, shirts, towels, sheets and more.
Size: Take into consideration the right size for your laundry needs. Are you looking for a large capacity to hold the whole family's laundry or individual baskets for each member? Do you need a smaller design that will fit in your closet or behind a door?
Materials: Laundry baskets come in a variety of materials: cloths, plastics and metals. The most important aspect of any material though is breathability and ventilation to eliminate odors. Also, depending on where you'll store your hamper, consider how flexible your design needs to be. One that folds down or compresses when not full or in use is ideal for smaller spaces, while hard materials are sturdier.
Portability: If you're going to be hauling loads of laundry up or down stairs, look for a basket that's easy to carry. Additionally, rolling hampers are incredibly transportable.
Style: If you're storing your hamper in your bedroom or bathroom, look for one that adds to your room's design rather than distracts from it. We suggest opting for a hamper with a lid, which will keep dirty clothes hidden away.
