Select the Right Type of Hampers
Traditional upright hampers combine space-efficiency with functionality, providing one large compartment to house all your laundry in one place. Stylish finishes and materials make hampers easy to pair with home decor, so you can store them in bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry rooms or whatever space you have available. Pick a hamper with a lid to conceal washables and maintain the tidy look of your home.
Sorting hampers provide multiple compartments to divide up your laundry however you like. Try out a simple dual-compartment sorter to store lights and darks when you're preparing a laundry load. Larger hampers feature three or four compartments for more flexible sorting options, letting you separate cotton linens from synthetic clothing materials or set aside your delicates for a gentler wash cycle. Pick sorters with a sturdy base and wheeled casters to make laundry comfortable to transport from room to room.
Make a laundry table your one-stop station for tasks such as sorting, folding, drying and ironing. Tables are perfect for dedicated laundry areas since they include practical features to help you take care of linens and clothing. Integrated sorters and drawers give you a place to gather laundry between loads and store accessories like dryer sheets and stain removers. Built-in drying racks and ironing boards let you hang up delicate clothing to air dry and get rid of any lingering wrinkles before you put them away.
Collapsible hampers are a smart choice for people who need a lightweight, adaptable way to store laundry. Folding hampers can lay in a flat position to fit in narrow spaces, such as closets and between or behind furnishings. Check out pop-up units if you have light laundry needs and prefer a hamper that collapses down and fits in drawers, closets, or luggage.
Do you need to collect laundry from multiple rooms or carry heavy items a long distance? Mobile hampers lighten your burden and help you transport laundry loads without difficulty. Hamper carts have durable wheels for smooth mobility, so it takes little time to navigate hallways and corners. As an added benefit, switching to a hamper cart can reduce body stress to ease a sore back or joints.
Baskets and Totes
Sometimes you just need a compact carrier to hold small loads or help you transport laundry to the washer and dryer. Laundry baskets and totes are great for individual use, reminding you not to let last week's jeans or loose socks clutter the floors. Baskets offer heavy-duty handles, so you can get a comfortable grip and carry laundry to your destination in no time.
Faux wood and wood hampers are built to last and become a staple of your decor. Look to Overstock for chic wood hampers that include decorative details and concealed storage areas to blend seamlessly with your space. The heavy-duty construction can support bulky items and stand up to daily traffic, while natural grain and lacquered finishes complement other furnishings in your home to make restrooms and laundry rooms cozy and inviting. Go with painted wooded hampers for a modern or timeless look that delivers universal style. Many eco-friendly wood hampers are handcrafted or sourced from sustainable materials, such as bamboo, making them naturally resistant to damage and bacteria.
When it comes to long-lasting hampers, metal and fabric go hand in hand. Metal frames add strength and stability to hamper carts and sorters, while fabric bags are conveniently durable and washable for quick cleanup between loads. Fabrics such as canvas, mesh, and nylon are easy to maintain, and they're made from tough fibers that resist tearing under the heavy weight of soiled clothing. Metal brings a modern, utilitarian vibe to your space, making it ideal for laundry rooms. Freestanding fabric hampers are lightweight with flexible frames to boost portability and add a touch of wiggle room when your laundry load is larger than usual.
Plastic hampers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from upright units to handheld baskets and compact carts. Plastic hampers are tough and versatile while often lightweight enough to carry by hand. Airflow holes are common features of plastic hampers, reducing mildew and odors by allowing plenty of air to reach damp towels and rags. Choose hampers with reinforced carrying handles you can grip for longer periods and flexible sides that expand slightly to fit different loads.
Made from natural or synthetic materials, woven hampers can work well with everything from country and coastal styles to sophisticated urban or island decor. The most common styles are classic bamboo or plastic wicker, but you can also find unique metal hampers clad in sleek woven fabrics. Many woven designs include a removable liner for convenience, helping to shield your hamper from damage and extend its lifespan.
