This metal laundry basket on wheels measures 27.4” x 15.7” x 11.4”. Its functional design includes thoughtful accents like the handles in a wood finish. This, combined with its white hue, makes it really easy to complement your room’s palette. 

Designer Advice:

Tiered baskets allow you to keep different types of clothes separated. Instead of having to sort white and colored garments when you do the laundry, it’ll be easier to do it as you go. These designs also help you make the most of tighter spaces. For example, because this model measures less than 12” in width, you can easily squeeze it in between the washing machine and another vertical surface.

This wire laundry basket on wheels comes in two versatile finishes: black and white. The hand-written style label inspires a familiar and nostalgic vibe. Measuring only 25” x 18” x 12.75”, it’s spacious but narrow enough to fit in most places.

Designer Advice:

This type of design is a charming twist on the most common metal baskets. It maintains their wired look but includes a fabric element. This means that your dirty clothes won’t be in plain sight. So, if you’d rather keep a tidier and more minimalist feel, you’ll probably prefer them.

This metal laundry basket on wheels is stylish but space-saving. Only 24” x 18.7” x 11”, it can be placed virtually anywhere! However, it might be too small for families with kids. We mainly recommend it for couples and small households.

As well as the more traditional black and white finishes, you can find this basket in a decorative gold design. This can mirror your existing accents or introduce a glam touch. Choose between a small and medium size to really match your household’s needs. 

Designer Advice:

It’d be extremely unpractical to pick a basket that’s too small to store your dirty laundry until it’s time to wash it. At the same time, however, why waste precious space with a basket that’s much bigger than needed? Most of them tend to have a storage capacity of between 14 and 20 gallons. We only recommend larger options to families of four or more.

Buying Guide

A metal laundry basket with wheels saves you from straining your back on laundry day, but you may be hesitant to invest in a laundry basket that’s at risk of rusting. While it might seem counterintuitive to put wet clothes in a metal basket, you can prevent your metal laundry basket from rusting by being diligent in how you care for it.

The good news is that most metal laundry baskets are made of stainless steel, which is highly resistant to rust, though not 100% rustproof. The durability of stainless steel means the time it takes to transfer your wet clothes from the washing machine to the clothesline, or the dryer isn’t enough exposure to cause rusting.

To increase your metal clothes basket’s longevity, avoid leaving damp or wet laundry sitting in it for long periods. After removing the wet clothes, immediately wipe the metal frame dry.

Plastic laundry baskets are known for cracking and being a pain to carry from one room to another when heavy. By the same token, wicker baskets absorb odors, are hard to clean, and can tear delicate clothes.

For this reason, a metal laundry basket is the best solution. It’s sturdy, stable, has a frame that’s easy to clean, and resistant to both odors and moisture. Best of all, it won't break on you!

You can also find metal laundry baskets that come equipped with caster wheels, making it easy to transfer your laundry from the washer to the dryer or transport them from your home to the Laundromat.
