The functionality of Brabantia Pedal Bins
Pedal bins have long been a popular choice for bins around the home, including the large main bin in your kitchen and the smaller bins in your bathrooms. Part of the appeal of this bin is that it is, by design, totally hands-free. The lid opens with a light foot pedal and closes once the pedal has been released, so you can use the bin without contaminating your hands. In addition, the lid is soft-closing and noiseless. Families with young children can avoid the metallic clunk of a bin lid being thrown closed, while the tight-closing lid fit ensures that no unpleasant smells escape. At Brabantia, we understand that cleaning or emptying the bin is never a fun task; so, we’ve made our bins very easy to clean, with a removable inner bucket.
Using pedal bins in your kitchen and bathroom
Pedal bins make a lot of sense in both the kitchen and the bathroom. With a foot pedal and soft-closing lid, you can use the bin while cooking without the need for constant handwashing. This also ensures the rubbish is protected from the heat and humidity of the room. The Brabantia range of bin sizes means that you can maximise your space with discrete space-sensitive solutions.
Small vs. large bins
Once you know where your bin is to go, you should have a good idea of what size it needs to be. For big families, we would recommend looking at a 50l or 60l model for the kitchen, while bathrooms may only need a small 3l bin. In the kitchen, it is possible to incorporate waste separation into your set-up, perhaps with a multi-compartment Bo bin, helping you divide your food waste, your recycling, and your general rubbish.
A bin to suit you
We offer a huge range of different colour and design options, so your chosen pedal bin can be an extension of your home’s style, blending seamlessly with your colour choices. Decide whether you’d like a metallic or matt finish, a light plastic frame or more robust steel, and a traditional tall shape or a modern rectangular bin. A fingerprint-proof finish might appeal to families with young children. As for colour, the options are almost endless, whether you’re looking for monochromatic and contemporary, a bold red or blue, or a soft champagne, mint, or terracotta. The choice is entirely yours.
