Contemporary Storage Baskets, Storage Crates & Organizer Trays
Storage bins, baskets, and trays are necessary parts of keeping an organized home, especially one that deals with a lot of minutiae: office supplies, electronic accessories, pantry goods, games, toys. But just because they’re necessary, that doesn’t mean storage accessories have to be boring or kept hidden away – with HAY’s assortment of colorful storage baskets, storage crates, and decorative trays, storage and organization can be stylish and fun.
How to Organize With Storage Baskets, Crates & Trays
Start with the essentials.
First, start with storage containers that will perform indispensable functions: laundry baskets for carrying laundry, wastepaper bins as trash receptacles in every room in your home, catch-all trays or bowls for personal and on-the-go essentials. These essential storage accessories will help combat the buildup of clutter (trash, dirty laundry, misplaced keys) throughout your home.
For laundry, shop the HAY Basket, a sturdy plastic storage basket can be nested when not in use. The HAY Basket comes in two sizes, the smaller of which would make an ideal laundry basket for transporting small laundry loads; the larger of which would make an excellent laundry hamper.
For paper and dry waste, go with HAY’s colorful Paper Paper Bin, an excellent choice for office trash can. Or opt for the Perforated Bin, a powder-coated iron trash bin that can double as an umbrella basket. For more discreet waste disposal, choose the Shade Bin, an elegant plastic bin that would make an excellent bathroom trash can with a lid. Its lid covers the liner within and partially conceals the trash can’s contents.
As a catch-all tray or bowl, look to HAY’s blown glass Splash Platter, a glass tray that can be used for storage or serving, or the stackable Kaleido Trays, colorful, geometric metal trays that can keep personal items contained.
Compartmentalize existing storage.
Your home’s existing cabinets, storage shelves, drawers, and pantry may do a fine job of keeping your items stored; however, they can always use a little more help with organization. Optimize your existing storage components with storage baskets, crates, and trays that will keep like items together. In your cabinets or pantry, organize different types of food and cleaning supplies using differently colored Recycled Colour Crates. Not only do these recycled plastic storage crates stack, but they can also collapse for easy storage when not in use. In office desk drawers, keep supplies in small storage baskets like HAY’s Trinket Trays, metal storage baskets sold as a set of three. In the bathroom medicine cabinet, separate cotton pads from cotton swabs using Glass Containers from HAY, colorful glass jars with lids. The Glass Containers also make great food storage containers for pantry staples like sugar, rice, nuts, and more.
At HAY, shop versatile metal, glass, and plastic storage containers that can help you optimize your home’s storage and organization without sacrificing on style.
