Aesthetic Ways to Work Wicker Storage Baskets Into Your Home
It’s always a good time to declutter. It’s also always a good time to have a ready stash of natural-looking wicker baskets to help you re-organise what you’ve got.
Seize the moment! That time of the year when the Christmas decorations come down or thoughts turn to spring cleaning could be the perfect opportunity to make your decluttering dreams come true.
It doesn’t have to be a chore; you could use the latest range of wicker baskets to create a cosy and more aesthetic look for your storage areas.
Wicker baskets are a godsend for home storage solutions because they are a good investment. Why? We list the reasons below:
Wicker baskets are made from naturally occurring materials such as rattan, bamboo, weed, and seagrass and are, therefore, biodegradable. Rest assured, you will bring less plastic into your home using this eco-friendly and traditional storage method.
These woven storage solutions are also reusable in multiple ways, meaning they’ll never be out of use.
Wicker storage baskets provide a neutral-coloured accessory that will go with any interior scheme that values warm natural colours, textured materials and earthy elements.
These are the perfect accessory for any home with a vintage country home or rustic aesthetic and tick all the boxes for those of you aiming for a cosy, hygge-infused interior.
Storage baskets come in various shapes and sizes that can be sourced to fit into almost every shelving scheme or room, depending on its placement.
Large baskets such as this large round kubu basket can be used as statement pieces, stand-alone installations, or planter containers.
Smaller baskets can be placed on shelves or within cubbies/cupboards to reduce and contain clutter for easy access.
Every culture has its version of the woven storage basket. Not only does it form part of our Irish vernacular in rustic home accessories, but there are also great examples of woven baskets and tableware accessories from other cultures.
For example, you can find some beautiful decorative examples of multicoloured woven baskets from the African continent to South East Asia.
When it comes to woven storage baskets, assembly is a non-issue. With fewer moving parts, it's ready for use immediately.
In addition, storage Baskets are easy to clean. A simple wipe with mild diluted soapy water will do the job. Thanks to the natural textures and colours, noticeable stains will not be visible or even an issue.
Let us count how wicker storage baskets could add a valuable aesthetic to your home! Take a look at some of our ideas below:
This is probably the hardest working part of your home, with the highest footfall and a propensity for accumulating a wide range of family clutter.
A simple basket on the hall console table makes for a perfect catch-all for keys, phones, scarves and bags.
Have a big family? Aim for a series of baskets on the ground, with labels for each family member, if you’ve got several busy kids on the go.
Alternatively, line up a series of square wicker baskets that slot neatly into wall-mounted hallway shelving:

Want a more eclectic look? Line up mismatched baskets on the ground or suspend them from hooks.
A larger woven basket on the ground could also serve as an ideal umbrella and cane holder

A close tie to the hallway, the utility room comes with a high volume of activity and use in a busy household. Most of us are handling laundry daily, especially in a busy household with multiple children.
There are multiple ways you could use baskets in this room:

We suggest using baskets with handles where possible, as this is where you’ll need a high degree of accessibility.
You should also use baskets lined with a linen or cotton fabric that can be washed and replaced. It makes perfect sense for protecting more delicate items and for preventing any soiling of the baskets by wet, damp clothes.
Large statement wicker baskets woven in a thick, sturdy fibre are the perfect holder for logs and briquettes.
Baskets make a perfect solution for any living room in winter. Use large standalone feature baskets to store excess cushions, throws, hot water bottles, and blankies.
Ensure you line them here with fabric so they don’t catch on the woven fibres.
This is also a perfect solution for bedrooms as an alternative to a trunk or chest at the end of the bed for storing soft bed accessories.

This is yet another room which sees a lot of activity and is an absolute clutter magnet. We love using baskets here because it is probably your fastest way to clear the floor of toys in a flash!
Ensure you get large room baskets with handles for the big soft toys. Get smaller ones for shelves for the itsy-bitsy items like lego and puzzles or doll’s clothes.
They can’t be too big! Size them so the kids can dive in and get access to their toys when they need them.
