Add a log basket next to your fireplace for a stylish touch 


Adding a high-quality log basket next to your fireplace is a great way to add a touch of luxury to an already beautiful feature within a home. 

Firewood within a storage basket gives a lovely rustic feel to a space, and it’ll also save you from traipsing outdoors to fetch more once you run out. 

See below for a perfect example of how to style a log basket beautifully. Angels_Home_  has subtly enhanced her space – just by adding our stylish Kubu Rattan Oblong Log Basket for a contemporary touch.

One of the great things about rattan storage baskets is that they are ultra-versatile. Most can be used for different purposes, so you can rearrange them to suit your aesthetic, should you ever wish to. 

Just look at how thehousebuild on Instagram styled our beautiful Milton Shelf Baskets below. Who knew that you could be jealous of someone’s pantry?

Of course, the practical qualities that come with having these products alone make them a worthwhile addition to any room they feature in – but it’s always great when they add a stylish touch of luxury too! 

Use a storage basket as a chic addition to your bathroom 

A premium storage basket featured in a bathroom setting is an ultra-stylish way to store necessities discreetly. 

Of course, storage baskets can be hidden away, however, when you invest in a high-quality and contemporary storage solution – we doubt you’ll want to!  

A perfect example of how to style a storage basket in a bathroom setting would be to use them as a toilet roll holder or a place for additional towel storage. This brings a sense of luxury to a bathroom, whilst also allowing you to create a well organised space. 

Most of the time, what makes a room ultra-stylish is paying close attention to the little details and finishing touches. Styling storage baskets this way is a guaranteed way to shape the entire setting, providing a subtle yet highly elegant bathroom addition. 

Use a storage basket as a coffee table alternative 

A superb living room decor idea is to use a larger storage product, such as a trunk, as a coffee table alternative.

Alternatively, if you’re not overly fond of the idea of replacing your coffee table – why not style your storage basket as a side table instead? 

These types of storage baskets do not have to be the focal point of a room, as they will add a stylish touch to any room regardless of where they are positioned. 

As a beautiful example, take a look at how sageandbeigehome styled our Wicker Grey Wash Hamper as a side table below.

Use your storage basket as a feature within a console unit


Most homes will have a console-style unit somewhere in the home. The most common places to have these types of furniture tend to be hallways, entrance spaces and/or living rooms. 

Adding high-quality storage baskets to console tables can truly enhance the overall look of this kind of furniture, as well as providing you with access to additional storage space that’s neatly tucked away.

Take a look at how ourbirchhouse paired our Kubu Rattan Storage Baskets to add a sense of style to their console table. They’ve been able to add discreet storage space to their console unit, whilst also creating a more chic and contemporary overall look.

Style as a soft furnishing holder  

Another popular way to style a storage basket is to use it as a place to keep soft furnishings that you would like to keep within reach. 

This could be extra blankets and/or cushions that you may not require all of the time, but you would also like easy access to – should you ever fancy an added touch of comfort. 

Aside from the practical benefits of using a storage basket for this purpose – styling them this way will also bring a subtle sense of luxury and elegance to any space.  

For a little inspiration, take a look at how Dionne Craig has chosen to style our gorgeous Oval Grey Log Basket below. She has found a beautiful way to create an eye-catching (and worthwhile) addition to her living room space.
