Types of Trash Cans
We use trash cans in almost every room of our home to keep each area clean and odor-free. When selecting the best trash bin for a room, choose a shape that works within your space. If you need a bin in the corner, consider a round model. Next to a wall or a cabinet, look for a semi-round or rectangular outline that will create an unobtrusive profile.
You don't have to detract from the style of your kitchen when choosing a trash can. If you prefer a freestanding receptacle, select a finish that is both easy-to-clean and beautiful. Stainless steel with an antimicrobial and fingerprint-proof coating is a great option. A step-can or hands-free sensor makes opening the lid convenient and hygienic when your hands are full or dirty, and compact sizes work well hidden underneath counters. To make quicker work of replacing trash bags, look for interior pockets that store and dispense liners.
Laundry and Bathroom
In laundry rooms, bathrooms and other high-moisture areas, find a container with rubber pads. This creates a non-skid base that provides stability and prevents scratches on floors. Locking handles are a smart choice for those with inquisitive pets and toddlers.
The home office is a room where organization and style are key elements of design. For this space, consider a slim-lined bin that separates trash from recyclables. A silent-close lid keeps workspaces quiet, while liner rims keep bag edges in place and out of sight.
