Keeping a family home tidy can be a bit of a continuous chore. But at the end of the day when I sit down I want things to be neat and relaxing! So to save time and effort and to encourage the children to put away their own belongings it’s a great idea to get a clutter basket.
A clutter basket means you can just whip around the downstairs of the house in a couple of minutes and throw all the clutter into the clutter basket. Leave this at the bottom of the stairs and make it part of the kids pocket money jobs to carry it up and put their belongings away… (alright…. well at least in their rooms)
Clutter baskets are great for doing a quick tidy up if you’re expecting guests and it will literally only take you 5 minutes to tidy up.
Here’s our round up of the nicest clutter baskets.
Starting with these canvas tubs from Great Little Trading Company. These are just lovely, bright, colourful and would look stylish against any colour scheme. They’re also big so great for collecting up larger toys. They have a waterproof lining so cab be used for other jobs like dirty laundry. Basket dimensions are 44cm high x 46cm diameter. Priced at £32 each.
Next up from IKEA the RIFFLA basket priced at just £7 this is great value for money. A sturdy basket dimensions 20cm high x 32cm diameter. Each basket is handwoven and has a nice bright pop of cerise thread and cerise carry handles.
Also from IKEA is the MAFFENS basket – I really like the contrasting pale seagrass against the stained black. This is a big basket so it’s good for collecting up a lot of stuff! Dimensions 37cm high x 45cm diameter. Priced at £18 it’s a nice affordable option.
If you like your home accessories to have a more traditional look then the white wash water hyacinth log baskets from The Basket Company are ideal. These sturdy baskets priced from £22 depending on size are super stylish.
Lastly we just love the rattan stair basket from The Holding Company. It sits snugly on the bottom step so is super handy for people to just pick up and carry up as they go upstairs. Dimensions are 32cm wide x 45cm depth x 35cm high. A perfect clutter basket!
