They make for great storage, and placing them at strategic points around your home can help to reduce clutter. Here are some storage and décor ideas for using baskets around your home:

Kitchen and Entryway

• Place a medium-sized, tabletop basket by the front door to hold keys, sunglasses, mail or anything else that you might want to drop the minute you walk in the door but will need to keep track of later.

• Display fruit and organize your kitchen by gathering your produce in a shallow fruit basket.

• Free up countertop space in your kitchen by hanging a long, thin basket on the wall to hold kitchen utensils.
