We are just finishing up our master bathroom remodel. This has taken forever because our cabinets were damaged, and had to be reordered. This extra month of waiting has given me plenty of time to purchase the accessories, and most of them were purchased at Home Depot, Lowe’s and Bed Bath and Beyond.
Our faucet, mirrors, toilet paper holder and towel bars are all designed of brushed nickel, and I wanted a waste basket that would compliment this theme. I had a bad experience with a stainless steel waste basket that I purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond, it was very hard to keep clean, and it started to get small rust like spots on it that would not wash off. I decided I did not want a completely silver colored waste basket, but with the money I received from returning my prior purchase to Bed Bath and Beyond, I bought a real cute Plastic Frosty Waste Basket with Wire Holder.
Sometimes you don’t know exactly what you want until you see it, and I knew this waste basket was perfect for my bathroom the minute I laid eyes on it. The main portion, the basket, is made of a hard plastic, with a frosty white look. It is the typical waste basket design, round and wider at the top than at the bottom. The plastic waste basket sits into a wire frame that is chrome colored. It is shiny chrome, and my other accessories are not, but it still blends nicely.
Solid silver waste baskets were retailing for as much as $35, and although they had an elegant look, I knew they were going to be hard to keep shiny and new looking. My previous model was always showing finger prints and water drops. The Plastic Frosty Waste Basket with Wire Holder is simple yet elegant too, the frosty basket really looks like it could be made of glass, and the wire frame or holder is sturdy and stylish. There are round ball feet on the very bottom of the wire frame that keep it up off of the floor.
This item comes with matching accessories, referred to the “Wire Ware Bath Ensemble”, which includes a tumbler, soap dish, toilet bowl brush, toothbrush holder, soap dish, tissue holder, lotion dispenser and a cotton ball jar. Personally, I do not care for the other products in this line, but I love the Plastic Frosty Waste Basket with Wire Holder. Considering it retailed for only $10.99, I feel it is a great value.
