Because of their clean and fresh look, white wicker baskets are great for organizing or displaying all sorts of different things around the house. If you don’t have any at the moment, pick up a few inexpensive ones and have some fun. Here are a few ideas to get you going.
White wicker baskets are perfect for creating a pretty display of flowers or fruit in the kitchen or dining room. Use dried flowers or even fresh flowers in a container or water inside the basket. Plants also work well if there is room for a separate small container with soil. Fresh fruit always makes a nice display. You can use a wicker basket with a liner or an attractive cloth napkin if you are concerned about keeping the basket clean or the fruit from getting nicked by a piece of loose wicker.
Large white wicker baskets can also be useful and attractive in the laundry room as laundry baskets or hampers. Again, make sure that you use baskets with a fabric liner, especially if the basket isn’t made of tightly woven wicker or rattan. Large wicker baskets can often be purchased in sets of two or three. Although wicker baskets are not typically very expensive, buying them in sets will give you an even greater value for your money.
One last place in the home that white wicker fits in well is with a baby or kids room decor.
White wicker is great for a nursery, and you often see baby furniture made from white wood or even wicker. Get a few white wicker baskets that match to store all of you diapers and supplies. You could even get a larger basket for toys and book as well.
White wicker baskets are very versatile and you may come up with many other uses for them, once you have them around for a little while.
