1. Maximise small spaces

A tilt door, side-mounted or bottom-mounted basket will enable you to utilise more of your available laundry and narrow cabinet space, especially in cabinets with plumbing obstructions. These baskets are perfect for small spaces that cannot accommodate tracks and slide-out mechanisms.

2. Sort it out

If you have lots of space yet find your laundry is overrun by the family washing, sort it out by using double laundry baskets — one for colours, one for whites. One of the most popular pull-out laundry baskets is Tansel’s large 500W x 500H x 485D (121L). Laundry baskets can also be placed into bedrooms and bathrooms to keep spaces tidy and reduce overflow in laundries.

3. Use practical solutions

4. Plan for durability

Some storage materials are more durable and, in the long-term, more cost effective as they do not require constant replacing.

Here is a helpful guide:

5. Understand the risks

As your laundry is a wet area, certain storage materials may deteriorate quicker than others. Be prepared if you choose fabric or canvas bags, which are economical and a good option but only if the bag continues to be available for replacement after a few years.

Melamine or high-moisture-resistant board can be customised but don’t breathe and are prone to swelling if exposed to moisture.
