Buying a Large Laundry Hamper
A large laundry hamper is a practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing option for storing dirty laundry in the bedroom or laundry room. A great size for a family of four, this woven double basket features two removable liners and a lid that keeps clothes out of sight and out of the odors they might produce.
Keep in Mind:
Laundry is a daily chore, so it’s important to choose a hamper with plenty of capacity to hold at least a week’s worth of dirty clothes. It’s also a good idea to pick a basket that can be hung from a wall to save floor space, or if you have an oversized closet, consider a rolling model with casters.
Laundry Made Simple: Choosing the Perfect Large Hamper for Your Home
The type of material you use in a laundry basket has a big impact on how it looks, feels and functions. Whether you prefer a basket made of cloth or hard plastic, make sure it has plenty of ventilation to help remove odors and can stand up to heavy weight.
You can go with a simple basket, or add a pop of color and pattern to your laundry room decor with a unique, stylish design. For example, this faux embossed sharkskin shagreen hamper with a drawstring liner is a chic, modern choice that can be easily cleaned, keeping it smelling fresh until laundry day.
If you have small children, a cute woven hamper like this one made by Senegalese artisans is perfect for their rooms. It can be used for laundry, toys, blankets and more, and will fit perfectly in any child’s bedroom or nursery.
