Using a basket is an effortlessly stylish way to add storage to any space. Just imagine—a basket on a shelf can make each cubby look neat, while a basket on the floor can instantly become a magazine rack. There are different ways to make use of baskets—whether it's for organizing things or decorating a space. Get started with these ideas:

1. Turn baskets into wall-mounted storage. 

Drill some hooks on your walls and hang your baskets on those. Use it to store different essentials like scarves, office supplies, and even your bills. Just make sure that the hooks and baskets can support the weight of the items. This is also a practical storage trick for those who live in rented spaces.

2. Jazz up a corner with a basket of flowers. 

Instead of using vases, choose baskets as your vessel for flowers that you want to display on your night table or on the side table in your living room. The woven wicker material instantly adds warmth and texture to the space. If you're going for a laidback, casual look, ditch your crystal vases and go for baskets.  

3. Store your gardening tools in a basket. 

Instead of merely dumping them in your garage, why don't you put your gardening tools in a basket? This way, all you have to do is pick it up when you're about to do your gardening tasks. 

4. Use little baskets to corral toiletries. 

Those tiny baskets used by flower girls in a wedding? If you have one, turn it into a catchall. You can place small soaps in it. Display the basket along with your bath salts, fragrance oil, and other bathroom paraphernalia. 

5. Repurpose a basket into a bed for your pets. 

Just place cushions and soft towels inside, and voila! Your pets now have a cozy bed to sleep on. 

6. Put your favorite books in a basket. 

Corral your current reads in a wire basket and place it on your night table along with a few accessories. This makes for a clean and charming vignette.
