How to Choose Decorative Storage Baskets in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Consider a Size and Shape That Suits Your Style and Space
  2. Opt for Durable Natural Materials or Budget Friendly Manmade Fabrics
  3. Choose Handles or Grab-holes for Easy Transportation
  4. If You Are Prone to Untidiness Baskets With Lids Can Hide a Multitude of Sins

1. Consider a Shape That's Practical and Suits Your Tidying Style

1. Consider a Shape That's Practical and Suits Your Tidying Style

If You Want a Basket That Easily Fits Into Room Corners or Under a Bed to Save Space, Choose a Rectangular Basket

First, consider the shape you'd like. The two main options are round and rectangular, though you'll spy one or two more uniquely formed baskets on our list too – your pick will depend on your tidying style and tastes, what you will be using the basket to store and whether or not you want a lid to hide what lies inside. 

The key benefits of a rectangular basket are the ease with which it fits into the corner of a room or under a bed – there's something very satisfying about lined-up edges that the tidiest among us just love! They also allow the user to not only store things like books, papers and shoes more easily, but also to organise the things inside into convenient sections, perhaps using a space divider. 

Pick Round Baskets to Blend Beautifully With Laid-Back Decor Styles

In contrast, the biggest appeal of round baskets has to be their aesthetics; depending on the style, they can transport you to South East Asia or rural France in an instant. While on average they offer a little less space – unless you pick an especially large one – they make a tasteful, bohemian-inspired addition to your home and their soft edges blend beautifully with laid-back décor styles.

Use a Novelty Basket in a Plainer Room to Make a Statement

To make a statement, you might want to select a more unusually shaped basket. There are some really fun and quirky options, as well as other more subtle, tasteful variations that buck the trend without being too bonkers. An unusually-shaped basket can become an eye-catching feature of a room, or perhaps serve as a way to tempt your family into using it for storage, rather than the floor.

2. Select a Durable Material Like Seagrass and Rattan, or a Cheaper Option Like Woven Cotton

2. Select a Durable Material Like Seagrass and Rattan, or a Cheaper Option Like Woven Cotton

Traditional grasses like seagrass and rattan are a beautiful material for baskets. They not only make a change from man-made rubbers and plastics, but they are also smooth to the touch and extremely durable, though they'll cost more on average. A cheaper option is woven cotton or plant-derived jute, neither of which provide quite the same visual poetry as grass but can be washed easily. 


For an even more cost-effective and durable option, you might want to consider a polymer like resin or silicone, woven to create the appearance of a grass basket. While it doesn't look as delicate or evoke a Mediterranean farmhouse, it should withstand the kind of bashing and bruising standard in busy households where children are in charge of tidying up. 

3. Keep an Eye on Handles and Grab-Holes That Make Tidying and Transport Easier

3. Keep an Eye on Handles and Grab-Holes That Make Tidying and Transport Easier

A clever addition to any decorative storage basket is a set of handles. They make it easier to move around the house – a particularly helpful extra if you are shopping for a bijou laundry basket, say. You might want to select a storage basket with separate loops attached, or alternatively, one with holes to make it easier for grabbing! Both are handy and it really is just a matter of taste which type you go for. 

4. Check for Baskets With Lids to Hide Mess and Keep Things Organised

4. Check for Baskets With Lids to Hide Mess and Keep Things Organised

Many of us want a stylish embellished basket to make our home a prettier place, as well as keeping it organised. But if we are aiming to make things look good, a big pile of junk or dirty laundry doesn't fit the bill. The answer? Storage baskets with a lid! Lids not only shield your guests from your mess, but they also provide a surface, meaning you can stack more baskets on top.
