Why a Clothing Hamper is a Necessity
Firstly, your dirty clothing has to go somewhere! At some time or other, puberty is over, and you need to get on with the job of adulting. Putting your dirty laundry into a laundry hamper is an adult thing to do. Plus it ensures less clutter lying around, and makes cleaning your home easier.
The best laundry baskets have one thing in common, and that is that they have more than enough space for a few loads of laundry.
When buying a laundry basket, you have a number of options to consider. You could, of course, go the cheap route and buy a plastic basket with handles. It is lightweight, quite durable, and a great for toting clean folded clothing around. But let’s face it, it is not going to look great sitting in your bathroom, nor does it do anything for your bathroom’s décor. Of course, one step up is a plastic laundry basket with a lid. The positive side with this type of laundry hamper is that your washing is out of sight when someone comes calling and asks to use the bathroom.
These days, wooden laundry hampers are found in increasingly more homes. They add a touch of style and sophistication to any bathroom and are available in a variety of styles, sizes, and finishes. If your decorating style borders on the traditional, a wooden laundry hamper is a good choice.
If you like the durability of wood but want something different, you can try bamboo. Bamboo is a lightweight material, which means that moving it around to wherever you want is much easier than a wooden laundry hamper. It is also a better option for certain styles of decor.
A more modern approach may be canvas and chrome. What makes these laundry hampers a good option is that the canvas is machine washable, while the chrome adds a touch of pizzazz to a modern bathroom. It does, however, go equally well with something a little more modern as well. These hampers come in single or multiple units, making for easy laundry sorting. They are time savers because you can sort your laundry as you fill up your laundry basket.
Of course, laundry hampers with castors make life easier too. Most of these castors have wheel locks, meaning that you can roll your hamper where you want it, fasten the wheel locks, and rest assured that your laundry is not going anywhere.
And then you could look at purchasing a laundry combo. These may have an attached ironing board on top, giving you the opportunity to give your clothes a quick press before dressing. Or you could take a look at a hamper combination with a shelf attached. The shelves give you extra storage space for all your bathroom goodies, such as soaps, lotions, and so forth.
After much consideration, the team decided that their firm favorite was the Bamboo Shelf Laundry Basket by BEST LIVING INC. Our team decided that this is the best laundry basket we reviewed because we all agreed we loved the idea of a laundry basket combined with a shelf that gives us more shelf space for all our bathroom bits and pieces. We also like the double hooks for hanging things, whether a towel, hangers, or bathrobe. It just fit the bill. The natural bamboo finish was an added bonus, adding that extra stylish touch that we feel would be welcome in any bathroom. Another bonus is the removable liner bag included in the purchase. Not only does it make laundry day easier, but it is washable as well.
