Creative Ways to Organize a Linen Cabinet

This linen cabinet is packed with ideas that prove storage of everyday bath items can look beautiful.

    • Better Bathroom Storage

      A linen closet or cabinet, shown here, is commonly used as a catchall for bath essentials, towels, bedsheets, and much more. With such variety in the items being stored, it's easy for this space to become overwhelmed and cluttered. Keep your linen closet or cabinet tidy by incorporating smart, stylish storage solutions. In the next slides, we'll show you how to use household items and dollar-store finds to improve your storage.

    • Use Clear Storage Containers

      Clear glass vases are good containers for soaps, bath salts, cotton balls, and swabs. They not only look pretty, but they let you see at a glance when you need to restock.

    • Have Fun with a Fish Bowl

      Another glass storage option is a fishbowl, just a few dollars at a pet store. A fishbowl's round shape looks pretty on the shelf, and the wide mouth makes it easy to reach in.

    • Use Baskets to Bundle Sheets

      Stacking sheet sets in a basket means no more toppling piles. Don't forget to add a label. Aim to have at least two sets of sheets for each bed in the house.

    • Round Up Sheets with Ribbon

      Another easy idea for organizing sheets: Tie a ribbon around a folded set to keep all the pieces together.

    • Spa-Like Storage Solution

      Rolling towels is just as easy as folding them and takes up less space, plus it's an easy (and free) way to give your bathroom a bit of a spa look.

    • Make Use of a Spare Vase

      Roll hand towels and washcloths and tuck them into square or rectangular glass vases. (It's a great use for all those florist vases gathering dust under the kitchen sink.)

    • Maximize Shelf Space

      Use stacking boxes, bins, or baskets for storing small items such as cosmetics or first aid supplies. These containers maximize vertical space on a shelf and are easily portable.

    • Reduce Chaos in a Cabinet

      Another good way to corral lots of little items, such as toiletries and bath items, is to arrange them on a tray. In a linen closet, you'll want a tray that's waterproof and wipeable.

      Grab and Go

      Load up a caddy with bath products so it's easy to take everything you need out of the linen closet in one step.

      Better Storage for Brushes

      Give containers from around the house new purposes in your linen closet. Try using kitchen dishes for brushes, kitchen canisters for cotton swabs and cotton balls, and a portable lazy Susan for medications.
