4 Easy Ways to Conceal a Trash Can
Say bye bye to this unwanted eyesore with these ideas
To keep the home clean and organized, we make it a point to add a trash bin in areas such as the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. While we can always opt for pretty bins with cute designs, there are days when we simply want to hide it (especially when you forgot to throw yesterday's trash and it's currently overflowing with paper and plastic).
You are not alone! Many homeowners would like to keep the trash can hidden and the house free from eyesores too! If you are ready to deal with this problem, here are easy ideas that you can immediately work on:
Work with a curtain
Is your trash can placed under the sink? Conceal it by installing rods and curtains. Choose a curtain with an interesting print or pattern that matches the overall look of your space. Once you're done, this can add a homey and country vibe to your space.

Choose your pieces wisely
Avoid choosing pieces that can get brittle or dirty overtime. There are stores who offer quirky trash bins that can blend with your home's interiors. A cute trash can be an inconspicuous piece in the bathroom or bedroom.

Make use of an empty drawer
An empty drawer or cabinet can serve as a receptacle for your trash bin. Ask your carpenter to transform it into a pull-out shelf so that you can easily slide it out when you need to discard items. Use the photo above as your design peg.

Use a woven basket
Big, woven baskets can accommodate a trash can as well. Use it if you need to add a trash bin by the living area. Just make sure that you clean it regularly and don't let it get wet to avoid funky smells.
