Items around the household can sometimes look stunning with our focus being on our bigger items like our sofa, tv, shelving and the like but what of our bins? Do we really spend that much time thinking about our bins and what they look like? For me this was a big no until I spotted Umbra Garbino bins on Amazon and ever since then I have appreciated the complexities of bin design but is the effort really worth it? Pros: The Umbra Garbino bin comes with a high capacity for a small bin and can hold up to 9 litres without any problems which means it is something that is practical around your household in a bathroom, living room, bedroom or even in the kitchen for glass (as I use mine). The bin is well balanced and so even with its curved design it will stand steady on your floor and not tip over. A great look thanks to the curved styling means that this something that will not look out of place in a room filled with other modern furnitures and electronics. Made from recycled plastics you would expect this would feel somewhat lower in quality than other little bins out there but nothing could be further from the truth as this bin actually feels more sturdy and well made than any other little bin I have had. The colour of this bin is a matte green and I would advise to check out the look on a website like Amazon as it is not bright like the picture above. I quite like the green colour and it goes well with other greens in your property or with earthy colours (I know some people do have browns and greens together) but check the pictures before you make a decision as other colours may suit you more. Easy to clean. A handle on either side allow you to easily move or empty the bin and the handles feel strong and like they can handle being used even when the bin has a lot in. Available for about £15 a bin they are reasonable for the quality and design you are getting. Negatives: None Overall I simply love this bin thanks to it having such modern and stylish design and sweeping looks. The bin holds a good capacity and feels like a quality piece of kit for your household. The reasonable price for a bin that feels well made and sturdy and will last makes this a very worthwhile purchase. Easy to clean and move around (thanks to the handles) so well worth having in your home.
