If your laundry hamper is situated in the laundry room, it might not be a big deal what it looks like. But if you have one in other rooms of the house, you might want one that can blend in nicely with the decor or color theme of the room. A black laundry basket can fit nicely in most rooms as a neutral color and depending on the material it is made from, can be a complementary addition to its surroundings.

If you have spent a lot of energy and time decorating your little one’s bedroom in a particular theme like sports or popular cartoon characters, why not add a clothes hamper that reflects that theme to complete the look. There are a great many kids clothes hampers that feature fun images like baseball and car racing, as well as Disney princess characters or Toy Story characters. Not only will your children get used to throwing their dirty clothes in the hamper, they’ll love how it looks in their room.

If you live in a decent size house, you probably have a separate laundry room where you can keep all your dirty laundry pretty much sight unseen from those who visit or drop in unannounced. However, if you live in a smaller space like an apartment or dorm room, you might want to consider keeping your dirty clothes in a stylish decorative hamper that will look good in any room.

There’s no denying that picking up dirty clothes and doing the laundry is pretty much a chore that is probably not on everyone’s favorite things to do list. However, it needs to be done and there’s no getting around it. A laundry hamper helps out a bit barbecue you can toss all the dirty clothes in it and carry it or wheel it to the laundry room which helps to make things a little easier. And whether you have a really cool laundry hamper, or a “boring” old one, as long as the hamper is not broken or falling apart, then one is probably just as good as another.

If you don’t have a laundry hamper to keep dirty clothes out of sight, things can get messy rather quickly. A wood laundry hamper is both a functional container to keep your clothes in and a nice looking piece of furniture that can fit in most rooms without anyone suspecting that it holds dirty clothes. Great for small homes or apartments with limited space.
