Easy Ways to Organize Your Linen Closet

A linen closet is a perfect place to store bedding and towels.  However, closets can tend to become a catch-all because they are closed most of the time, which makes it easy to hide things in them. A disorganized linen closet can be a real mess to deal with, so here are a few important things that you should keep in mind in order to ensure that your linens are stored properly.

  1. Start by removing everything from the closet. This will give you an accurate idea of how much space you have to work with. It will also give you the opportunity to get rid of any items that do not belong in the closet.
  2. Sort linens by size, set, color, and pattern. Add labels to the ends of the shelves where specific linens go, so you can easily get new sheets and replace old ones at a moment’s notice without having to poke around through piles.
  3. Fold your linens gently and not too tightly in order to avoid permanent creasing. For large linens such as tablecloths, it is best to roll them for storage.
  4. Decide which items you want to place at eye level.  They should be the linens that you use most frequently, such as towels or bed linens.  Use the higher shelves to store things such as out of season coats or extra bedding.
  5. Consider purchasing a few clear storage bins where you can stack folded sheets, pillow cases, and blankets. This will avoid the tendency of linens to unfold and moved every time the closet is being used.
  6. Save space in your closet by using vacuum compressed storage bags.  This will minimize the area consumed by your linens and also protect them from dust, moisture, and insects.
