Stylish Hampers Can Be a Wonderful Addition to Your Room Decor

Aug 7, 2008
When you think about decorating your home, hampers is likely an afterthought. Stylish hampers can complete the look of a bathroom or bedroom and should be chosen carefully. You might just find a beautiful laundry hamper and decide to decorate a room around it.

Pretty hampers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and materials. You can purchase clothes hampers in wicker or covered in cloth. There are very durable laundry hampers made of plastic or resin that look very stylish as well. Stylish hampers can brighten up a room when strategically placed, not to mention the fact that clothes hampers help to keep an area tidy.

Bathroom laundry hampers should be of a more sturdy material that won't break down from moisture. Plastic or resin might be the best choice for these areas. Some wicker materials are coated to withstand moisture as well. Be sure the check the inside of the clothes hampers you might buy for a bathroom, too, because you are going to be putting damp towels in them, which can cause mildew if the material of the hamper soaks up the moisture. Even stylish hampers for a bathroom should be well made and ventilated to prevent mold and mildew from forming.

Kids' bedrooms can be kept tidy with stylish hampers. There are laundry hampers made for boys' rooms and girls' rooms. Some have colors and designs that compliment the design of the kids' rooms. There are clothes hampers for girls' rooms that are in the shape of a princess castle and for boys' rooms shaped like a rocket ship. There are even hampers that hang below a basketball hoop to be hung on the closet door. These make tossing dirty clothes into them fun for kids.

Stylish hampers for adults' bedrooms are a nice addition to the room's décor. Some bedding sets have matching clothes hampers that you can purchase separately. If there isn't a matching laundry hamper for your bedroom set, take a pillow cover to the store with you to search for pretty hampers that will be a good match. Try finding a solid color that matches an accent or trim color in the bedroom. This will help to bring out that color when you set the clothes hamper near it.

Some people just buy plain clothes hampers and cover them with material to match the room they will be in. This can be easily done with a padded material, or a thin padding to place under the material, and a glue gun and staple gun. Simply wrap the padding and material around the laundry hamper and glue at the top and bottom edges as well as at the seam and then use the staple gun to tack the seams down in inconspicuous places to secure them.

Laundry hampers don't have to be expensive to be pretty, although some can be a little pricey. The price you are willing to pay for a pretty clothes hamper will probably depend on how visible it will be in the room. Are you using it to accent a room or will you be hiding it in a closet. You will probably pay more for stylish hampers that will be part of the room's décor, but it will be worth the price.
