Mixing bins and baskets on open shelves - need help please

7 years ago

I'm looking for suggestions or guidelines for mixing bins and baskets on shelves. I need to accommodate a variety of items and would like a care-free yet orderly look.
I have a wall of shelves in the play room, a long hallway lined with shelves upstairs which is half used for books and half for laundry, sewing, and extra toiletry items, plus a couple of ikea Expedit shelves off of the living room where we keep hats, gloves, and lunch boxes.
My dilemma is that my random selection of containers doesn't look good or function as I'd hoped.
I've searched here and on other sites but the topic is too broad. Any suggestions, rules of thumb, or examples would be appreciated.
