Home Furnishing - Sometimes, The Little Items Matter

By: Gen Wright

Home interior design is not just about the overall theme and the center pieces. Sometimes, even when you have all your essential furnishing in place, you still feel that something is missing. That's when you need to pay attention to the little items. There are two little items that have so many uses that they deserve to be mentioned here.

1) Rattan baskets.

The rattan basket is a little item that has often been overlooked. Such baskets are created from many types of materials - cane, seagrass, synthetic rattan, etc. Under skillful hands, these materials can be transformed into baskets of different shapes and sizes.

For example, if you need a laundry basket, you can purchase the Postdam Basket. The Postdam Basket is an item that is deep enough for placing dirty laundry. You can place it in the bathroom, and dirty clothing can be thrown directly into the basket. It comes with two useful handles, and this makes it easier to carry the basket to the washing area.

The Padova Basket is another useful little item. It also comes with two useful handles, and looks similar to the Postdam Basket in shape. However, it is a very shallow basket. This item is most suitable for small items. You can imagine placing keys, coins, receipts and other small items into this basket. Use it to help you organize your stuff.

If you don't like the circular shapes of the Postdam or the Padova, you can always check out the Hessen or Apulia baskets. The Hessen is squarish in shape and the Apulia is rectangular in shape. Both come with two strong handles.

Also, don't forget that rattan baskets are often used as waste paper baskets. The baskets even come with well fitted lids!

In general, bigger and deeper baskets can be used to store or carry stuff around. Smaller and shallower baskets are usually used for displaying items such as fruits or flowers, or they are used for storing small little objects.

2) Rattan racks.

Rattan furniture can help you organize almost anything in the house. Let's just focus on the TV area. You can buy a Managua Cabinet and use it as a TV stand in a small room. The frame of the cabinet is made from wood. However, the surface of the cabinet is created with rattan. Wood and rattan combine to give a very natural look. If there is additional space on the cabinet after placing the TV on it, you can always buy an additional rattan basket and place some fruits or flowers beside the TV. In fact, many holiday resorts tend to do this to make the room for pleasant looking.

For the living room or for larger rooms, you can consider buying the Baghdad Low Cabinet. The Baghdad cabinet can be used as a stand for a huge TV. As it is a low cabinet, you don't have to worry about stability issues. Huge and large objects will not topple easily when placed on the cabinet. For best results, place a couple of rattan book cases at the side of the TV. Keep your latest magazines in there so that guests have something to read when they are sitting in the living room.
