Bins, bins, bins. As a professional organizer, I’ve been known to spend the better part of an afternoon searching for just the perfect bin for a client.
The quest for a stylish bin, both fabulous and functional, starts after determining exactly what needs to be stored. Once you’ve got that down, measure your space and then let the fun begin.
From baskets to canvas. From metal to plastic. Do you want jute, sea grass, lacquer, or linen? The options are endless!
This month I’m sharing my favorite bins out there.
Let’s start with classic basket options.
|Eileen Fisher Senegal Baskets - from Garnet Hill|
|IKEA Expedit Seagrass Bins|
|Jacqueline Underbed Basket from Pottery Barn|
|Modern Weave Storage Bins from West Elm|
Now bins in other natural materials like jute, linen, and canvas.
|Richards Eyelet Tote from Gracious Home|
|Bamboo Jute Collapsible Bin from Crate and Barrel|
|Chevron Bin from See Jane Work|
|Pandan Bins from Serena & Lily|
Metal works for an industrial feel and also when you need something durable.
|Down to the Wire Bins from Land of Nod|
|Macbeth Storage Bins|
|Square Brocade Bins from The Container Store|
And why not a little something for the kiddies while we’re here.
|Dotted Storage Collection from Land of Nod|
|Strapping Storage from Land of Nod|
I’d love to hear from you. What’s your most favorite bin? Comment here and let me know.
