Baskets and boxes have fast become a popular home storage option because of their ability to work in literally any room of the home. They’re incredibly practical, versatile, decorative, and are great for adding texture and style to your decor.
Our baskets and boxes come in many different shapes, sizes, and materials – so you’re bound to find one to suit your needs among our extensive range. Here at Zanui you’ll find laundry baskets and boxes, vintage leather trunks, decorative bedroom storage, wooden chests, cane baskets, flexible rubber tubs, and so much more.
The question is: what type of box or basket are you looking for?
Before you start your search for the right storage basket or storage box, you should try to have a clear picture of which room you intend to use it in. This can help you more easily decide which of our many options is right for you.
Smaller boxes and baskets made of cane or rattan are great for storing knick-knacks and smaller items in the kitchen, bathroom or living room. Many entertainment units and storage units have enough shelf space for storage boxes, so you can keep all of your DVDs, Blu-rays, games, and remote controls organised.
Tall wicker baskets are great for the bathroom and the laundry, as they’re the perfect size for hiding clothes and towels that need washing. Wide wooden boxes look great at the foot of the bed and are perfect for storing bed linens and throws. Deeper wooden chests make wonderful toy boxes for the playroom.
Plastic multipurpose tubs work great as washing baskets for storing dirty clothes or for transporting washed clothes to and from the line. Their weather-resistant nature also makes them suitable for storing footballs, pool toys, gardening tools, and other items outdoors.
And if you’re only looking for storage baskets for occasional use, look for ones made of softer materials, like seagrass or canvas, which may be folded for out-of-the-way storage when not in use.
The versatility of storage baskets and boxes means they can serve a decorative purpose as well as an organisational one.
Natural baskets and boxes, such as those made of rattan or cane, are great for adding natural texture to your decor. You’d be hard-pressed to find a coastal or bohemian space without a natural fibre basket!
Wooden chests and trunks often cover the full spectrum of aesthetics, from vintage-inspired to ultra-modern. White or neutrally-painted boxes often blend seamlessly into Scandinavian and contemporary interiors. Wooden boxes in rich tones or with weathered detailing can perfectly accentuate rustic decor or work wonders in a more traditional setting. Our range also features a few leather trunks and chests in traditional shapes and styles that will also bring plenty of vintage charm to space.
Storage baskets and boxes can also make great gifts, or at least a nice alternative to traditional, typically discarded gift bags. Fill a cane basket with baby essentials to make a sweet baby shower gift, or place pamper products or stationery inside a neutral-coloured box to make a nice birthday present. Once they’ve opened the gifts, the receiver will have something they can then reuse in their own home.
