Linen closets can be a bit chaotic. But, when a linen closet is nice and clean, it makes you and your family’s lives a lot easier. Check out our tips to get your linen closet organized!
- When going through your closet, make sure you don’t have more sheets and towels than you need. Two sets of sheets per bed and two to three bath towels per person are more than enough – shoving sheets and towels in the closet only makes accessing them more difficult.
- Keep sheet sets together so they are easy to find. Use the matching pillowcase to store sheet sets so you’ll never have to rummage through your closet looking for a pillowcase again.
- Store backup sheet sets or towels in airtight bins or bags to avoid mustiness and moths.
- Fold your linens to optimize the space. Deeper closets call for longer folds to most efficiently use the space. Towels can also be rolled to save space and create easier access so you grab a towel.
- Keep beach/pool towels in a separate pile or basket from bath towels. It’s so much easier to grab a towel for the beach when you don’t have to rummage through the whole stack of towels.
- Utilize empty door space by installing rods on the inside of your closet doors to hang ready-to-use towels for your next shower.
- Use baskets to store smaller items such as extra tissues, soap, sewing and first aid supplies, or any other miscellaneous items that could get lost in the mess.
- Keep an open container of baking soda in your closet to help combat mustiness and mildew.
- Use undershelf baskets to create more space for smaller linens such as hand towels or washcloths.
- Shelf dividers can help to separate towel stacks and keep them from merging.
