Taylor Wooden Laundry Basket in Cappuccino Review
How much is too much for a very good hamper?,
I’ve only lived with the hamper for 10 days but I think it will be long lasting. It is solid and very roomy. The bag, even when very full, lifts out and is carried to the laundry area easily using the pictured handle. The lid stays up when you lift it until you push is down. Nice. The hamper is 15″ deep so does take up some space in the room, but it looks very good if you like a dark finish. We have it in our bedroom with our heavy mahogany furniture.
The odd thing is I saw this Taylor Wooden Laundry Basket on Amazon sold by different companies for different prices. Cheapest was 130.00 without shipping. I paid 19$ more, but the price can be as high as 154.oo so search the site carefully. This is the first time I had such a changeable price on Amazon. I searched several times on different days using different search terms and came up with varied sellers and varied makers with the same exact picture.
Still a good product and seeing as it is solid it is probably worth the price. Time will tell.
Most well constructed hamper I’ve seen!,
When I received this Taylor Wooden Laundry Basket, I was amazed at how heavy the box was, which I discovered was due to the construction of this laundry hamper. It is truly the most solidly constructed hamper I’ve ever owned or seen. If I ever needed an available place to lean on or even sit while changing footwear, I’d have no fear about this piece of furniture being able to support my weight. Beyond the construction, it is a good size overall, fits in perfectly with the masculine look of a guy’s bedroom and even matches the finish almost exactly of my dark contemporary furniture. The only negatives I can think of so far would be, a section of trim around the hamper is not smoothly finished on top, which is far from a major issue, just odd due to the rest of it is completely finished. Other than that, I don’t mind this but some people may, due to the solid wood construction, it truly is heavy for a hamper, if that could be a problem for anyone. Shipping was much faster than I expected and it was protected very well by its packaging it arrived in.
A hamper as a piece of furniture,
My fiancee and I have been looking for a hamper for the bedroom for a while now, as we were tired of using the typical white plastic piece in our newly renovated bedroom. This one fit the bill very nicely. No, it’s not divided, but I didn’t really care about division anyway. As for the color, it is a Cappuccino for sure. The problem with labeling something as Cappuccino is that everyone things of it differently. I have this Taylor Wooden Laundry Basket piece on the opposite side of the room from ever other piece of dark furniture, so it’s not an issue.
The only flaw I have seen is the velcro on the removable bag doesn’t hold too well. When the basket is full, it has a tendency to come undone before I get the basket to the laundry machine. More times than not, we end up not using the removable bag, and it works great. It was great to finally find a piece of furniture to use as a hamper. It works great for 2 people who do laundry weekly. If it was 10-20% bigger it would have been perfect, but even as is, Taylor Wooden Laundry Basket is a lot better than everything else.
