5 Best Collapsible Storage Bins

By on September 12, 2018

I might be wrong, but it was my impression that IKEA pioneered the use of elegant and stylish storage bins to help organize a house from being a mess to a clutter free one.

I remembered the time when I first walked into one of their megastores during my early teens and was astonished with how simple it can be to spruce up a bed room with the simple use of all sorts of storage containers.

These days, competitors have learned how to manufacture these storage baskets cost-effectively and even better.

1) Sorbus

Made of nonwoven polypropylene and cardboard, the Sorbus collapsible storage bin is great for organizing and reducing clutter at home while being fun and functional at the same time.

With approximately similar length, breath, and height, these storage cubes are ideal for keeping toys, crafts or anything for that matter and be neatly placed in a corner of the house.

Handles are sewed on in front to enable easy pulling up from drawers and shelves.

Cupboards with cube space will be a perfect match for this product.

  • 11 x 10.5 x 10.5 inches
  • Approximately 0.9 pounds each
  • 9 colors to choose from

The versatile colors of lightweight fabric that this product is available in means that there will always be a selection that will be suitable for any room of the house.

While they can be purchased individually, as a pair, as a quartet, or a set of 6, they get cheaper as you buy more of them.

So I’d get more of them so that they are ready for action when there is a need for more in future.

The main reason for bulk purchase is that when you come back to buy them again in future, the design or color you initially bought might not be in production anymore. Even the same color can be in different shades.

So a living room might look odd with different fanciful designed storage boxes.

Anyway if they are not in use, they are easily foldable for easy storage.

2) AmazonBasics

The best budget collasible storage bins are these sets from AmazonBasics. They easily offer the best value as well.

Foldable open-top storage cubes supply ample space to store personal belongings. They can then be stashed away hidden from view.

They don’t just function well as pull out drawers for cube storage organizer shelves, they are also collapsible for easy storage.

  • 10.6 x 10.6 x 11 inches
  • 14.2 ounces
  • 6 colors

The only drawback of this model is that they are only sold in half a dozen a pack.

But at such a bargain price, buying more will not really burn a hold in your pocket.

3) Dll

Fancy looking fabric item can really spruce up a living room.

This is why sometimes, even the most basic color themed living room can be liven up with a few fancy-designed cushion covers on the sofa set.

This design concept can also be applied to fabric storage bins.

In the product line of Dll, there is a wide variety of designs and color combinations for households to choose from.

Among the attractive, and some outrageous, you will find those that incorporate:

  • Chevron zig-zag lines
  • Diamond shapes
  • Herringbone designs
  • Lattice
  • Scroll wallpaper
  • Starburst
  • etc

This impressive range of designs and the multitude of available colors that go with each design means that there will surely be one combination (of a few) suitable even for the modern chic house.

I can see quite a few of the design selections that will go well with a modern designed living room.

Consisting of a measurement indicating a perfect cube, they can be purchased as a set of 2 or 4. And have a size option of small and large.

  • Small 11 x 11 x 11 inches, 1.25 pounds each
  • Large 13 x 13 x 13 inches, 1.35 pounds each
  • More than 20 design variations to choose from

These collapsible storage cubes are made of non-woven fabric material and cardboards for the sides.

Dll also has a range of storage bins that are more rectangular shaped resembling storage trunks.

So do check them out if that’s what you are seeking.

4) Maidmax

What’s notably different with these storage bins from those that are listed above is that they have cut out handles lined with dual plastic on both the front and back.

This makes it ideal for cube organizer shelves that don’t have a backing.

A person can easily pull it out from both sides of the shelf using the built-in handles.

That’s not to mention that 2 handles, one on each side makes it easy to transport and move around.

Made with eco-friendly nonwoven fabric, they come in 3 basic solid colors of beige, black and brown.

  • 12 x 12 x 12 inches
  • 1.2 pounds each
  • 3 colors

Built with high quality cardboard, they are strong and sturdy enough to be stacked on top of one another, provided they do not contain essential items that are too heavy.

They are not meant to take on more than 5kg of stuff.

I can see them being a bin for clothing, undergarment, socks, etc, at the laundry area. Cleaning it is breeze too.

Coming in packs of 6, they also fold inwards on both sides to form a flat shape for easy space-saving storage when not in use.

5) Maidmax storage bins with rope handles

These are very limited design elements with storage bins other than printing patterns on the body or with creative handles.

These set of basket bins from Maidmax have cotton ropes as handles.

This simple application of creativity totally changes the look and feel of the whole product.

Unlike cube-shaped bins, these are oblong and crate-like which might be suitable for putting in cupboards and wardrobes.

But what really stands out aesthetically are the rope handles. Making them very complementary for resort themed interiors.

  • 14.4 x 10 x 8.4 inches
  • 1.2 pounds each
  • Bamboo style

Similar to other storage boxes sold by Maidmax, these bins are also constructed reinforced cardboard ensuring the hardy structural integrity.

Depending on the design theme of the house, these can provide that extra element that adds to the whole environment in the house.

Finally, remember that collapsible storage bins are usually made of a fabric surface.

This means that they are meant to be used indoors and not to left outdoors. Water can easily seep through the fabric and cause irreversible damage to the cardboard that makes up the internal structure.

Seeing how affordable and similarly constructed these bins are, I’d say that the focus should be on the design factor as they are all pretty well constructed with a host of satisfied customers.

So do consider the home decor, or the design of the room where these bins will be used when choosing one to buy.
