You know you’re a grown-up when you can no longer stand heaps of dirty clothes stuck in a pile in the corner of your bedroom, or even hidden away in a closet. Tackle that issue with a lovely laundry hamper that will hide away all your washing until you have time to deal with it. Whatever your budget, whatever space you have to work with, we have a laundry hamper solution to suit you in our roundup of the best options out there today.
Seville Classics Water Hyacinth Oval Double Hamper
Made of sustainable, tightly woven water hyacinth in a natural stained finish this classic option has an oval shape with a pair of removable liners made of cotton and polyester. The cut-out handles are designed to help you move the hamper around. It measures in at 22.75″ x 13″ x 24″ H.
Mind Reader Ivory Laundry Hamper
An excellent basic option with a very neutral design and ivory colour, Mind Reader’s hamper is tall and slim at just 10-inches wide, so ideal to fit into awkward spaces, like beside your washing machine. It can hold 60 litres of clothing but is lightweight and easy to move around thanks to the built-in, cut out handles.

Handy Laundry Mesh Popup Laundry Hamper
This affordable option is perfect for times when you have extra laundry to deal with, if you have guests staying with you, or if you’re travelling. Its foldable mesh design means you can keep it in a cupboard until you need it, at which point it’s the perfect place to bung dirty clothes in, and portable thanks to its handles.
AmazonBasics Foldable Laundry Basket Hamper
This budget option is brilliant for spare rooms and occasional use. Designed to fit into a closet, this can fold down when not in use, which makes it a great space-saving solution. Made of durable canvas, it’s beige with dark brown trim, meaning it will blend into most room’s decor.
Whitmor Bamboo Hamper w/Rope Handles
Measuring in at 12.25 x 16.25 x 23.38, this large basket should sort most average laundry needs. It’s made from eco-friendly bamboo, while the rope handles are attached for carrying heavy loads. The interior has a rectangular removable liner, and the hamper is available in two different colours.
Sea Team Fabric Folding Laundry Hamper
Ideal for a nursery or kid’s room, this is a lightweight and portable option made from breathable cotton fabric, but with the bonus of waterproof lining. It has a collapsible design if you don’t need to use it all the time and handles for portability.
Put it in the corner:
Honey-Can-Do Bamboo Wicker Corner Hamper
If you can only spare a corner for your dirty laundry, this hamper has you sorted. With a machine-washable cotton liner, this is a compact solution for smaller spaces, such as en-suites or guest rooms.
Simple Housewares Heavy-Duty 3-Bag Laundry Sorter Cart
This is a little too industrial for use in a family bathroom. Still, if you have a larger household and a dedicated laundry room, this is a fab tool for being very organised and sorting your washing into categories. Each heavy-duty grey bag holds 13 gallons of clothes, and the unit, although unwieldy, is easy to move around as it’s on caster wheels.
It’ll all come out in the wash
Our overall staff pick, the Seville Classics Water Hyacinth Oval Double Hamper, is large enough to hold even your linens and is made from natural water hyacinth. It also has a lid, which means you can ignore what’s in the hamper until you have the time to deal with it.
If you’re lucky enough to have a utility or laundry room, however, we’d suggest the Simple Housewares Heavy-Duty 3-Bag Laundry Sorter Cart. With not just two, but three separate sections, this is a very efficient option for anyone who wants to drill down and climb that laundry mountain.
