The Basket Company - Review


Your once spotless home is transformed into a cluttered shambles the moment you become a parent, or atleast mine did. Everyone tells you how hard babies are to look after, how expensive they are or how they will never let you sleep again but no one actually warned me how their belongings will take over the entire house. Why does the baby have more clothes than Mummy and Daddy put together? How have they ended up with a different teddy for each day of the month? They have so much stuff! 

When we bought our first house early last year we agreed to make it the best home that we possibly could, we want the perfect home for Noah to grow up in. We want everything to have it's own place and have some sort of organisation amongst the chaos. Noah's toys do take over the house but with the help of added storage in every room the house is looking less like a Toys R Us explosion and more like a home.

At the moment Noah has two toy boxes. One is downstairs in the living room and the other is in his bedroom. I knew I wanted to have some extra storage in his room to display his vast collection of Teddy's and The Basket Company came to my rescue. They saw my tweet and kindly emailed me to ask if I would like to review one of their baskets.  



I wanted to choose a basket that would fit in with the colours of Noah's room. I had what I wanted in mind when I was browsing through the laundry basket section and chose the Natural Round Wicker Laundry Basket in medium which would match his pine furniture and warm coloured walls and carpet.

When the basket arrived a few days later it was everything that I had wanted. It was the perfect colour to match the room and it was just the right size to fit in the nook between the wardrobe and the door. 

It is very well made and a generous size. It contains a liner which is great because it protects any items from damage from the wicker. I like how you can remove it to wash it too, that's always a plus. There is also a lid to the basket but I chose not to use it because I wanted to show off the teddy's inside.

We are very happy with our basket from The Basket Company and wouldn't hesitate from buying from them in the future. 



- I was sent this product for the purpose of this review. However all opinions are my own.

    1. It certainly is. When he is too big for teddies then it will be used for it's actual purpose, for laundry!
