Today I am making the case for baskets as a means of organized design. Where should you put the hand towels and fresh soap in the guest bathroom? A basket. Is your kitchen too cluttered? You probably need shelving, or in this article, a basket. Is your baking rack missing something? I think you know what it’s missing: a basket.
From rustic to structured, baskets come in many shapes and styles. Choosing one for your design is a personal decision. Is your room too strict? Balance it out with an elegant, yet earthy basket, perhaps made out of bamboo.
Does your basket serve a specific purpose, or is it strictly ornamental? This comes into play when deciding how sturdy of a material you need. For example, when selecting a laundry basket for a bedroom, a sturdy basket with a liner is probably best.
A spare basket (or two, or three . . .) in the kitchen is extremely useful. Gather vine-fresh tomatoes from the garden or keep the silverware for your outdoor party neat and organized with a basket.
Is your design looking a little sparse? Does your new hutch have too much empty space? A pop of greenery and a natural basket are great, cost-effective ways to enhance your design. These French baskets create an elegantly rustic feel, when gathered together in a vignette!
Living Room Design
Keep toys off the floor and remotes in their designated areas with baskets! Interior design doesn’t have to be expensive, just smart. This re-purposed bookcase gives a blank white wall a sense of identity, while featuring functional components.
An ordinary plastic planter is evolved when placed inside of a beautiful basket. The flowers you have cared for are now given a completely personal touch, and are now neatly incorporated into your patio design!
