Baskets are a great way to store things in any room. I have baskets in every room in my apartment.
In this post I’ll show you a few ways I use baskets in my home for storage.
I’ve been decorating with baskets and using them for storage for many years.
Back in the seventies we used flat baskets to decorate our walls. Now I’m seeing that again in boho style decor.
I store my cutting boards in this huge basket I found in Jenks. It’s a $10 basket that looks vintage. I could not pass it up.
This basket is almost 2 feet long! So there are endless possibilities for storage with his basket.
I corral my various camera lenses in a basket on my desk.
There’s always one lens on the camera so I can take a quick pic, and it’s generally the zoom lens.
I find that storing my lenses in this little basket keeps them safer.
I don’t have to worry about them falling over and rolling off my desk. Camera photo lenses aren’t cheap!
I store decorating and gardening books in a basket on a shelf in the living room.
The ones I thumb through the most are right at hand to browse through whenever I’m mulling redecorating or starting a new project.
I keep toilet paper in a big rectangular basket on a bathroom shelf where it’s handy.
I also have paper towels in a similar basket on the bottom shelf of the kitchen cart.
I prefer to store them in baskets so they look a bit decorative. It’s always better to make containers look decorative so they blend right into your decor.
A basket is also a good place to store vintage canning jars.
Not only are baskets handy for storage, but they provide wonderful texture to your decorating.
Do you use a lot of baskets? Where are you favorite places to use baskets?
