How to create a hidden laundry hamper

Many people keep their laundry hampers in the bedroom, bathroom, or laundry room. While laundry hampers serve an essential purpose, seeing baskets strewn about the house can get overwhelming. If you already have a drawer cabinet that you want to use, a hidden rolling hamper will be an easy addition. If you don't, you can DIY your own cabinets or install a pull-out drawer insert, like the Laniyia Pull-Out Drawer from Wayfair, for $106. If you opt for an insert, you'll start by attaching the under-mount drawer slides to the bottom of the pull-out drawer. Then on the inside of the cabinet, attach the rails with screws. Place the insert inside the body of the cabinet and slide it in. Measure your cabinet and find the laundry hamper you want to put inside. It's that easy! With these simple steps, you can have the feel of an expensive hidden laundry hamper without the cost or the clutter.

If you aren't feeling too DIY-savvy, another option is the Kleankin Tilt Out Laundry Hamper from Target for $93. This is a great option to hide those pesky laundry baskets in an all-in-one cabinet. It has two anti-tipping tilt-out hampers in a tasteful white cabinet that will easily blend in with your bathroom, laundry room, or bedroom decor.

Maximizing space and style with a hidden rolling hamper

Changing your drab, unsightly laundry hamper into a concealed rolling one is a simple way to optimize your space. You'll not only free up valuable floor space, but you'll get to experience a stylish and comfortable home. Once you have the extra space where your hamper was, you can install shelves or cubbies for linens and towels. Add a potted plant, a basket, and a bench or chair, and you've got yourself a small seating area. 

For added functionality, add a multifunctional piece like an ottoman with built-in storage that serves as seating and additional storage. Alternatively, you could turn it into a reading nook with a comfortable lounge chair and a small end table. By freeing up that space, you can create a brand new area of your home that's practical and looks good. Say goodbye to clutter and dirty laundry bins and hello to a neat, organized space.
