We don't have a hallway. Our front door opens smack bang into our dining and living room. As each family member abandoned their trainers, wellies, heels; and, even roller blades, our lounge used to look like a shoe shop by the end of every day. Now anything that has to be deposited on entry has to be put in this basket. A good storage basket can make a huge difference to mess levels. Here are some of our favourites for this season.
Olli Ella has a great selection of storage baskets that are perfect for playrooms and children's bedrooms. The stackable ones should work well for dressing up clothes and those with lids will be great for hiding those brash and ugly toys that you don't want on show.
Whilst this La Petite Maison Blanc Campervan storage basket is ideal for teenage toiletries, chargers or homework. Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous will even personalise it for you.
These Grille wire baskets from Loaf could also work with toys or children's books. Or perhaps magazines, newspapers or post, anything that's attractive enough to be on display and that needs to be found quickly.
There are lots of other things in our house that this Charcoal Waves cotton basket could contain. Perhaps the collection of knitting wool, the dog's accoutrements or all those scarves, hats and gloves.
