Expecting houseguests this weekend and not completely satisfied with the way piling bath towels on the guest bed looks? Well, simply roll up bath towels and place inside of a coordinating wastebasket in natural bamboo or solid white lacquer. Then place next to the bath tub for a spa-like bathroom accessory. Guests will sure to be impressed and probably take the idea home with them.
Magazines and newspapers always tend to scatter themselves across the coffee table in no time at all. For a cleaner look in the living room and for easy accessibility, place a decorative decoupage wastebasket next to the sofa or reading chair for all current reading materials.
It’s raining and pouring and the kids are dragging wet umbrellas through the house again! Stop them in their tracks, and place a circular, water resistant wastebasket by the front door as an umbrella stand. Also during the cool seasons, setting a wastebasket near the entryway is a good approach to collecting stray scarves, gloves and hats.
With children in the home, storage and clean-up can pose as a challenge from time to time. For the little toys and gadgets that never seem to have a proper home, place stylish and colorful wastebaskets in places where toys seem to collect.
The same goes for smaller sports equipment that always seems to disappear, such as baseballs, tennis balls, etc. Keep a durable wastebasket next to the larger sports equipment in the garage for easy storage. This way, smaller items will not be lost quite as easily.
