When looking for a hamper, you basically have 3 options. The plastic basket type, the kind that is integrated in a larger cabinet, and the stand-alone cabinet type. The advantage of the latter is that the hamper can become an attractive piece of furniture that you can show off in any room. Often it doesn’t even look like a hamper, but rather like a small cabinet, especially when made of high quality wood.
Two examples I selected – I love the small one on the right:
