Dread the idea of doing laundry on the weekends? Welcome to Adulting 101. While we understand that laundry can be an extremely mundane and boring household chore, with the right tools and organization, it can become more manageable and even add aesthetic value to your home. One such essential tool is a laundry basket!
In this comprehensive guide, our home experts from Lulu Home will teach you how to navigate through the process of choosing the perfect laundry basket to suit your needs and preferences in Singapore.
Before diving headfirst into the selection process, it's important to first understand your laundry needs. Start by considering the following questions:
Laundry Frequency: How often do you plan to do your laundry? Daily, weekly, or biweekly? This will help determine the capacity of the laundry basket you require. The less frequent, the likelihood you’ll need a larger basket to accommodate the dirty laundry is higher.
Laundry Load Accumulation: How much laundry do you tend to accumulate between each wash? Even if you wash frequently, if you have a large household, you may tend to accumulate a larger laundry load quickly. As such, with a large load for each wash, you’ll likely need to consider a basket with a higher capacity and features like handles or wheels for easy transportation to the laundry room.
Material Preference: Do you prefer synthetic or breathable materials? While for some it’s a personal preference, it can come with some real impact on your laundry load.
Laundry Sorting: Do you plan to separate your laundry by household members or types of clothes? If you handle various fabrics that require different treatments, a basket with compartments or multiple baskets may be ideal.
Function vs. Aesthetics: Determine whether you prioritize functionality or if you want the laundry basket to match your home aesthetics as well.
Now, keep these requirements and preferences in mind as we explore the factors to consider when choosing an ideal laundry basket in Singapore.
Size: Laundry baskets come in various sizes, ranging from those to accommodate small delicate items to large loads for bedding. Ensure the basket you choose can hold your average load of clothes comfortably.
Compartments: To facilitate laundry sorting, consider baskets with separate bag compartments for whites and colours. Alternatively, you can opt for more than one laundry basket placed side by side.
Materials: The most common types of laundry basket materials in Singapore are the following with their respective pros and cons:
Transportability: Features like handles or wheels help with the transportability of the basket, particularly for heavy loads. Sturdy handles that distribute weight evenly are crucial for comfortable carrying. Alternatively, wheels can also provide convenient mobility.
Design: Don't forget to consider the style of the laundry basket, especially if it’s kept out in communal areas. There are plenty of options that come with unique designs that can easily fit any aesthetic look and feel of your home, so don’t forget to pick one that works for your home!
