Everything that is airy, meaning transparent is perfect for tiny homes, small apartments, RVs, Campers, boats and tiny houses. Why? Because it doesn’t fill visually the space like a closed-in item creating a kind of full impression. Wire Baskets belong in this category, even better when you can wall mount them.
Originally wire baskets were meant for kitchen holding fruits and vegetables. Which of course is still very common. Having all the food that doesn’t need to be in the refrigerator in a wire basket, that’s even mounted on the wall is perfect for every tiny kitchen. Having your fruits and vegetables in a wire basket frees your countertop or side table or wherever you liked to keep them.
A wire basket can – you know me – certainly be used for other rooms and places in your tiny home. You can fill it with towels or toilet papers in your bathroom or with tools for your garage, with toys in the kids room, with phones, tablets or papers in your home office or with hats, gloves, sunglasses in the hall way. Is there anything more versatile than a wire basket? And I say it again, having it wall mounted makes it even more interesting for every tiny living. It has no footprint at all.
Some like the Large Rustic Wire Basket by MyGift come with erasable chalkboard labels on the front of each compartment. For certain items kept in it this can be the best solution. I totally like this idea and see already labeling it with decorative letters. Beautiful! Also this model has a upper shelf that’s great for placing other items on top of it.
This gives me another idea of how you can further improve the look of your new wire basket. Since it’s made of wire all around you can use the sides to hang something nice like a plant or flower of plastic or something practical like a hand towel or a brush.
Another great idea is to hang wire baskets one under the other for a long vertical row – or you get already a long-sized wire basket – and hang it in an empty corner.
There are different sizes and designs of wire basket available. Don’t forget to measure the space where you would like to hang your new wire basket. Take a look at the following models. I hope you’ll find the perfect one for your home.

- Woven chicken wire and rustic brown finish
- 3 compartments plus sturdy top shelf
- Approximate Dimensions: 26″ W X 12.9″ H X 9.8″ D

This is a decorative and smart way to store a lot of fruits and vegetables.
The bin was better than I excepted. Fits very well in my farmhouse kitchen. Size of the bin are prefect.
One thing I like about this is the little shelf on top. We don’t have a ton of counter space. We put two loaves of bread on the shelf and it’s my favorite part about this thing. This was the perfect solution to ridding our counters of two fruit baskets and a banana tree. That and we avoided a bread box. Score!
Wall Mounted Black Metal Wire Basket

- Can be wall mounted or placed on tabletop
- Made of heavy duty metal with a classic matte black finish

What a space saver. If your table is small or simply you want to keep fruit elevated and give your wall some decoration with the natural colors of fruit, this basket is for you.
Perfect! This black metal scrollwork basket adds a classy touch to my kitchen. It is large enough to hold all our fruit. Being a wall mount basket it frees up counter space.
I was looking for something to mount on the wall that would be stable enough to hold a lot of produce. This is perfect! We’ve even overfilled it, where produce is hanging off the sides and it does a great job! It’s a great size!
Large Rustic Industrial Wall Mount Wire Storage
- Rustic industrial metal and wire rust and green finish
- Size: 10″ wide x 10″ deep x 30.5″ tall

I wanted a fruit & root basket that didn’t take up counter space in my small kitchen. It is sturdy, easy to mount, attractive and just the right size for my space.
I love this rack! It address to the rustic look of our kitchen. It holds all of our produce that would normally sit on the counter top without a problem
This is a beautiful piece. The color of the wire is a warm brown with copper undertones. I’ve hung it in my entryway to store shoes– a perfect space-saving solution for our small house!
