Our clothes hamper is in the closet but I keep our towels hamper in the laundry room. Gross wet towels need to be separate from our clothes (even if the clothes are dirty!).

I used to keep mine in the closet before I met DH.  Then it moved to the bedroom to make space in the closet for his stuff.  It will probably end up in the bathroom eventually, once the renovation is done.

I keep it next to the dresser in our bedroom, because our bathroom is small and our laundry room is actually outside the house. There is no way I’m stepping outside every time I need to put a pair of dirty socks in the hamper.

Our hampers are in the bedroom. They are charcoal grey with grey vinyl tops so they look great with our color scheme.

MrsTeacup:  Why are wet towels considered gross? After all, you are clean when you use a towel. They are actually cleaner than your clothes. I would never put a wet towel in a hamper. Any wet clothes can get mildew in the hamper.

janedw:  clothes hamper is in the closet, bath towels hamper in the bathroom, towels for cleaning/dishes have another small basket in the laundry room (since it’s right off the kitchen)

We have a four basket hamper ‘station’ in the laundry room. Just got in the habit of putting our dirty laundry in there each morning after getting dressed. Plus after we blened our families we needed a place to corral all the clothes!

Ours is in the corner of our room and decorative so it looks nice. We do laundry regularly so we don’t have it heaped up or anything.

Our 3 clothing sorting hamper is in the laundry room. For some reason, my husband’s clothes still end up on the laundry room floor :/

janedw:  Ours is black wicker with a lid. Honestly it could double as a storage bin. Google deocrative laundry basket or decorative hamper and there are lots of options.

janedw:  They make pretty hampers! But ours are in a spare bedroom. So are our dressers. Kinda like a dressing room I guess.

We have two hampers since we do laundry separately. Both are tucked between our bed and dressers on either side.
