3 ways to pick the perfect woven basket

1. Consider the size

Woven baskets come in endless shapes and various sizes. If planning to use a woven basket to move from room to room, to hold toys easy for young ones to lift on their own-to-house cleaning supplies, you will want to opt for a smaller, lighter basket. If for storing off-season clothes in a closet or a basket that will remain in one place for a while—it can be heavier and bulkier in size.

2. Pick a style that suites your home

Select a woven basket that best fits your existing décor and your style.

  • Seagrass baskets tend to lean more coastal or boho chic.

  • Whereas Hyacinth baskets are more of a classic look.

  • Natural materials such as palm and rattan give your space an airy feel.

  • Rope baskets can help store things while blending in with almost any décor.

Of course, selecting a basket that is a new style to you can be a great way to change up the aesthetic in a room.

3. Find the purpose of the basket

As some baskets are pricier than others, determining their purpose before investing is a great option. A basket in the bedroom may experience extra wear and tear, whereas if placed in the living room to hold coffee table books or photo albums may lean more towards luxe.

In that case, opt to mix and match different baskets with durable construction of tightly woven rattan and rope.
