Practical and stylish: 12 baskets we absolutely love for every budget

H&M

Perhaps the ultimate homeware accessory, baskets manage to be both endlessly useful, and they look great in any room in the house.

Is there any problem that a good basket can’t fix? Well yes, plenty, but they’re certainly one of the hardest working piece of homeware one can buy.

Need something to soften up a corner? Get a basket. Want to add some easy-breezy natural vibes into a space? Get a basket. Need to make a sad plant look better? Put it in a basket. Looking for somewhere to shove random items that don’t really have a home? Get a basket. 

They’re also so versatile, coming in loads of different shapes and styles, from rustic, irregular finishes to those with patterns and colour incorporated. Here are some options at different price points, so you can find the perfect basket for your home.

Under €20

baskets for every budget
Ikea

Perfect for when you don’t want to spend much, these baskets on the cheaper end of the scale tend to be smaller, but are ideal for storing odds and ends.

Under €100

baskets for every budget
Zara Home

There is plenty of choice in this range, whether you want to go for something large to put laundry in, or a quality piece that can sit in a prominent place.

Over €100

baskets for every budget
The Citizenry

Spending a bit more on a basket will allow you to go for something of great quality, perhaps even handmade, which supports skilled craftspeople. These are baskets that will stand the test of time, and are something a bit more special than your average offerings.
