While you might have a closet in your bathroom, we’re betting it doesn’t hold all the linens in constant rotation in a typical household. Here, we’ll show you how to buy -- or improvise -- the perfect linen cabinet for your bathroom. Got a little extra space? Take our word for it: We can help you turn it into the perfect spot for a bathroom linen cabinet.

Ready-Made Bathroom Linen Cabinets

Different styles and sizes of ready-made linen cabinets abound, but in bathrooms, the most-used type is tall and narrow, because that’s often the only configuration that will fit in the space available for a piece of furniture. Vertical linen cabinets come with many combinations of drawers, open shelves, glass-front doors, and enclosed doors. Traditional models might sit on the floor; more contemporary units might mount on the wall. Choosing the right model for your space depends on the linens you need to store.

Do-It-Yourself Bathroom Linen Cabinets

If you prefer something a bit less ordinary, try a pharmacy cabinet -- a tall glass-door cabinet with many shelves on high legs, the likes of which you might have seen in an old-fashioned doctor’s office or drugstore. For seasonal or seldom-used linens, another option is to stack old leather suitcases. (Hint: A little odor-eliminating spray will take care of musty smells.) Or buy three or four stackable laminate cubes at a discount store—they’re not just for college dorm room storage.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Bathroom linen cabinets provide welcome storage, but they can also add to the beauty of a bathroom. If you want to show off plush, colorful towels, look for a model with semi-transparent glass doors. You’ll achieve a color-coordinated look while still obscuring clutter.

To DIY -- or Not

Ready-made bathroom linen cabinets often come in a box with parts that require assembly -- not a bad thing if you’re handy and confident with a screwdriver. But if the thought of putting something together yourself trips your inner alarm, consider having a local cabinetmaker construct a linen cabinet to your personal specifications -- and deliver it to your home.

Internal Configuration

When deciding on the right bathroom linen cabinet for you, look at shelf and drawer configuration. Ask yourself if there are spaces big enough to accommodate extra bed pillows, fluffy comforters, and stacks of sheets and pillowcases. Also check to see if there is space for a laundry bin -- probably best in a compartment separate from fresh towels. And if laundry resides there, could a rack to hold stain treatments attach to the interior of the door? Might the cabinet hold pajamas or robes? And if you have frequent guests, avoid the coated-wire shelves typical in many linen closets -- they leave unattractive grooves in towels.

Larger Bath Linen Cabinet Options

On the outside chance that your bathroom is quite large and would welcome bigger, wider furniture storage pieces, consider an old-fashioned cedar chest; it’s perfect for storing linens. Or use the china hutch you inherited from your grandmother to show and stow linens.
