The kitchen space is never enough. Given the high number of kitchen items that are not used daily like the extra food items, kitchen towels, excess utensils, or spices, a basket may come in handy here. You may get one or more baskets and place them on top of your cupboard or anywhere that you are comfortable with and use them for your storage needs. Such baskets make it easy to sort similar items and to have a decent kitchen arrangement.

Living Room

Most people often overlook the living room when it comes to storage issues. Getting a decent looking basket and placing it in a strategic position, like next to a sofa can give your room a more appealing look. In the living room, baskets can be used in storing extra throw pillows, magazines, books, and even flower vases. In some cases, baskets tend to replace bookshelves and coffee tables.

Bedrooms are the homes of some small things such as extra chargers, cables, and clothes which all appear to be on the move. If not properly arranged, these items may clutter your bedroom. To declutter your room, you may consider picking some baskets that you can use to arrange and store items according to their similarities. This basket arrangement not only makes your room tidy but also makes the picking of items easy and fast.


Your bathroom contains extra towels and some toiletries that tend to occupy much of its space. Getting a basket to store these excess items is an effective way of saving your bathroom space in addition to making it neat.
