Creative Storage Options using Wire Baskets

Wire baskets storing hair care products and jewelry.

So often we find ourselves looking for more places to store our things – pantry items, shower products, clothing, cleaning products and more.

Using wire baskets or shower caddies that hang on the back of doors and cabinets is a creative way to remove clutter and make more space.

Storing Gift Wrap and Accessories

I use to keep my gift-wrap and accessories in an organizer in the office closet. As my business grew I needed the space for office supplies and other business-related things so I decided to use the back of the door to store my gift wrap, ribbons, tags, etc.

There are many over the door hanging storage solutions that use sturdy wire baskets where you can store all your gift-wrapping necessities in one place. This is a particularly good idea if you are limited on space. Think of all your gift wrap, scissors, tape, jars with labels and tags, tissue paper, ribbons and bows, gift bags, etc. all being in one place. How convenient!

Storing Bathroom Supplies

If you have a small bathroom and don’t have a lot of room, think about moving bath towels to hooks on the back of the door and using the towel rack to hang wire baskets for bath items and other bathroom necessities such as a hair dryer and curling iron.

There are baskets with dividers that could hold make up products as well. You could even put a floating shelf over the towel rack for more storage too!

My daughter has a very small guest bath in her home so she had to think outside the box a little.

She ended up using a wire shower caddy in a corner to hold extra rolls of toilet paper and other items – maybe this can work for you too?

Kitchen Storage

I’m sure this isn’t original to anyone reading this but, if you need more room for pantry storage, use over the door adjustable shelf rods and wire baskets for spices, snacks, dish towels, utensils and so on.

Under the sink, you can hang a storage basket that can hold cutting boards or other similar items you want to keep off the counters.

You can also get yourself a three-tiered hanging wire basket for storing fruit and other daily snacks.

Bedroom Storage Needs

If you have a small bedroom that only accommodates a small dresser and you need more storage options, you can hang over the door baskets for socks, underwear, pajamas, and less bulky items. This can be hung on the back of the closet door or the bedroom door.

Jewelry and Makeup Storage

Not a wire basket but worth mentioning. My daughter just bought the coolest thing - an over the door cabinet with a mirror on the front and room inside for jewelry, makeup, perfumes and more. This unit is very nice and holds quite a bit of stuff.

There are so many different styles and sizes of wire baskets. Take a trip to your local container or hardware store to see what is available.
