Argos Solid Wood Storage Box
Advantages: Solid wood, holds a lot, nice design
I have mentioned in previous reviews how, when my husband and I got married, we had a wedding list in Argos and one of the items that was bought to us on this list was this Argos Solid Living Wood Bathroom Storage Box, which I can't remember the price of at the time, but at present costs around £45, which does seem a lot, but I think it will outlast the more basic flimsy linen baskets and like the title suggests it is made of solid wood.
We wanted this basket for our laundry, although it is perfectly feasible to use it for other storage if preferred. Inside there is a lining, that can be removed and cleaned when required, so it is ideal for putting all your dirty laundry that is awaiting washing. What attracted my husband and I to this storage box was the design. We thought it would look perfect in our main bathroom, matching some of the other accessories we have, and we particularly liked the criss cross design on the sides and top of the box. This pattern gives the box a richness compared to more basic laundry baskets.
The box has the capacity to hold 67 litres and can hold a good amount of washing - we should know with a young child! However it is probably easier to let washing build up in this box given just how much it holds so that is probably a bad thing!!
When we got this box, it was a case of my husband putting it together himself, with the instructions and tools at hand and from what I remember there was no issue and it was simple enough to construct with a little patience. The lid is on a hinge which lifts easily.
All in all, we have had this storage box since we were married and we have had absolutely no issue with it . It continues to serve its purpose as a laundry basic. We can remove the inner lining if necessary, though we haven't needed to, and it holds a good amount of washing meaning it isn't going to spill out after a day's dirty clothes have been put in. I think it looks well made and with the criss cross design, it looks rich, and although £45 is pricey, if it continues to do its job, and look the part for us, I am happy with the price.
Summary: A pricey but very good laundry box
