Decorative baskets and other types of storage solutions are my love language lately!

This isn’t the first time I’ve spoken about my love for baskets in the home.

I’m sure it won’t be my last time either.

My favorite storage solution is to always add a basket!

In fact, almost every room in our house has at least one basket in it.

Since I added a few more to our home decor over the summer, I’d thought I’d dedicate a post to storage and decorative baskets here today.

A beautiful basket not only serves as a great way to store so many different things (toys, blankets, stuffed animals, firewood) but baskets add both warmth and pretty textures to a space as well.

In my office I’ve got one big basket tucked in the corner holding a bunch of wallpaper rolls.

One day maybe I’ll actually do something with these papers…but until then, I think they look pretty cute here!

Our family room is where we tend to hang out the most, so the baskets in here help to not only keep my (anemic) plants looking cute (above) but they also hold a variety of Legos (this basket holds a bizzare amount of Legos) and throw blankets.

There once was a time I was actually trying to fold up throw blankets to display on the couch.

This was a futile attempt at keeping this room looking neat.

As a result, now I just swoop them up and stash them in this basket.

Looks so much better and it’s a lot less upkeep.

I’ve seen coffee tables with baskets built right into them, these would also be perfect storage solutions for a family room or play room.

Laundry Room:

It’s no surprise that our laundry room has several baskets in it.

Aside from the usual laundry hampers, everything from cleaning supplies to linens and towels get stored in a basket.

By the way, all the details and sources including the “before and afters” of my laundry room can be found here.

The most baskets we own can be found in my pantry.

There’s also several wire baskets in there, just outside of the frame.

I took a quick iPhone pic to show how we use baskets to store things and stay organized in the pantry.

I almost re-took the photo to make the pantry look more photogenic.

Ultimately I chose to go with the photo as is, it’s more realistic this way!

The truth is I try very hard to stay this neat, and this is real life, but it’s not “perfect” magazine neat.

It’s just real life neat and organized:)

Both our old mud room in our former house (above) and our current mud room area (below) rely on baskets and storage bins to keep things in order.

Everything from sports gear to rain boots has it’s own space here.
