If you're tired of stepping over piles of dirty laundry on the floor every night, your bedroom or closet will majorly benefit from pull out laundry hampers. Since most are constructed to fit snuggly inside any closet or cupboard, they typically sit on a metal drawer glide or full-extension ball-bearing slide system that allows for a smooth glide out of the cabinet. Sitting on mounting hardware, interior decorator Nick Olsen suggests opting for a heavy-duty metal wire frame with a nylon hamper bag if you accumulate lots of laundry. Some pull out laundry hampers may also be fashioned out of wood or plastic that stands in place with side supports. You'll often find laundry hamper bags made out of canvas with some containing mesh sides for ventilation and carry handles for when you need to take your clothes to the washing machine.
Poonam Khanna the founder of Unionworks suggests that you find pull out laundry hampers that are between 18 to 20 inches deep in order to properly fit into most lower storage cupboards, closets, or cabinets. For those with smaller cupboards, there are some pull out laundry hampers that are between 12 to 15 inches in depth as well. If you have a walk-in closet with plenty of cabinet space, opting for a 25-inch wide pull out laundry hamper with a removable nylon bag makes the most sense and adds both convenience and function. There are also metal wire pull out laundry hampers that are designed to be slimmer in size that will accommodate tilt-out cabinet doors as well.
For those who are consistently sorting through the laundry bag that they share with their partner, there are pull out laundry hampers with dual compartments that help to divvy things up. Design expert Kelly Behun suggests opting for a stand-alone unit that can go in your bathroom or laundry room if you're low on closet or cupboard space in your bedroom. To keep things simple and convenient, there are pull out laundry hampers available that come with a removable liner bag, ventilated sides, and a lid. A lot of options also come with carry handles and a machine-washable bag to keep things hygienic and smelling fresh. If you opt for a stand-alone unit, there is also the possibility for a tabletop surface that creates additional storage and space for folding clothes.
