Today I wanted to show some amazing options for farmhouse style laundry baskets that you can incorporate into your home. As many of you may know, and many of you may not, I am participating in the One Room Challenge hosted by Callingithome.com. The room I decided to tackle for this project is my laundry room, and boy was it a big room to tackle. As I near the end of the challenge, I thought a few posts connected to some of the products I am using might be helpful. In addition to laundry hampers, I wanted to share bathroom hamper ideas too! You can never have enough storage ideas to conceal those dirty clothes and I want to share my favorites with you.

If you are like me, you have a stash of those white plastic laundry baskets that get carted around your home. They definitely serve a purpose, but they sure aren’t very attractive. I have found some really great options that I am looking at incorporating into my laundry room and around my home. Why can’t you have purpose with beauty and style? For my purpose, I wanted something that would coordinate with my “farmhouse style” decor. This list has a wide range from inexpensive to more costly options if you want to invest in something more substantial.
My style can be described best as Farmhouse Industrial, if that is an actual term. I love the soft, neutral look that is associated with farmhouse style, but I also like to add in some industrial touches such as caster wheels and metal. The juxtaposition between the industrial touches along with the soft delicate farmhouse style can be truly amazing.
When laundry day rolls around, I dread it. It does not matter how often I work on laundry it just never ends, and maybe, just maybe having a pretty place to put the dirty laundry will at least make it bearable.
There are tons of different styles of bathroom laundry hampers wether you are using them in small bathrooms, or a large master bathroom with oodles of space. Something we deal with in our bathroom is the kids, and the husband throwing their dirty clothing on the bathroom floor, instead of in the hamper. So if you think that getting a cute hamper will help that, I am sorry to say that not much can be done to fix that haha. Its like they just do not see the laundry basket!
Here are a couple features you may want to look for when purchasing a laundry hamper for your bathroom, bedroom, or laundry room:
Lightweight Hamper: If you are someone who has to carry around you laundry basket or if you have limited mobility make sure to consider and look for a lightweight clothes hamper.
Collapsible Hamper: This is a great option for someone traveling or for a college student. They can keep it out of sight when not in use and it is easy to transport around. We actually took collapsible hampers on a cruise with us and it made it so easy to keep everything together and out of sight.
Wicker Basket: I love the look of wicker and find it works well in terms of keeping odors down and preventing clothes that are soiled from getting too. stinky because of the. air flow. They look so stylish a s well! The secret is to find one that is sturdy and well constructed.
Removable Liners with drawstring closure: I find this very helpful as well. We have removable liners that are also drawstring in my DIY laundry baskets, which. hold. loads of laundry and have held up amazingly well! You can see how we built them here. Laundry bags are convenient, easy to transport and can be stored away during travel. They do not take up much space.
Lids for the laundry basket: This is a great way to conceal the ugly truth that is dirty laundry.
Casters or Wheels: This is a very helpful feature for my kids. They have learned to do their own laundry and its easy for them to push their laundry basket to the laundry room without much effort.
Double Laundry Hamper: This is a nice feature that can help you and even your kids to separate laundry in colors easily by having two or three different compartments to put it all. These are great for laundry rooms and small spaces since they usually take up less floor space than three separate laundry baskets.
Farmhouse Style Laundry Baskets and Hampers:
It is amazing what products are out there if you only look. The great thing is that now you don’t have to! There are so many beautiful designs when it comes to laundry baskets that can carry heavy loads but also look like its apart of your design. These farmhouse style laundry baskets are sure to be a hit. Having a functional laundry solution is key to. keeping everything in order.
As I have remodeled my laundry room over the last 4 weeks, I have had many decisions to make. Laundry baskets is just one of the many. For me, having baskets with casters is a must for my home. The functionality of having the wheels lessens the amount of lugging around I will need to do in the future. One of these 15 farmhouse style laundry baskets will be making its home in my new remodeled room. Do you think you know which one?
Make sure you PIN IT for later!
