Linen Closet Organization
Clean and Tidy
At the Door
Label Your Linens
Keep linens organized based on where you plan to use them. Sort sheets for each bedroom in the house into their own storage bins so finding the right set is always easy. Keep towels ready to grab in a hurry by tying a complete set of towels together with a ribbon. When guests arrive, your linens will be presentation ready and quickly within reach.
Create a space to sort, fold, and mend linens with everything you need within reach. Start by attaching a deep shelf at waist height to serve as a work space. Attach a battery-power puck light underneath a higher shelf to light up the space. On a nearby shelf, use stacking boxes with tiered compartments to keep sewing tools, extra bathroom supplies, and any other knick-knacks you may need in an organized spot.
Easy Ways to Organize Your Closet
Restore order in your closet with these must-know storage and organization secrets.
Keep small items organized with trays that are typically used to sort small office supplies. Create your own go-to spa kit by filling trays with pampering supplies, ready to pull out whenever you're in need of a retreatlike getaway.
Assemble travel bags filled with small-size toiletries in plastic zippered bags so you're always ready to go. Prepare one for each family member, personalized with his or her favorites.
Treat Your Guests
At the Ready
Stock a cleaning caddy with favorite supplies, paper towels, and cleaning tools so you're ready to go for cleaning day or a quick tidy-up. Toss toilet paper in a handled tote and periodically carry the tote throughout the house to restock each bathroom.
Store It Right
Gather shoe polish, rags, and extra shoelaces in a plastic storage box with a latch to keep these stainable items away from clean linens. Use a lockbox to store medicines and first aid supplies. Store the box on a high shelf and hide the key from curious little hands.
Air out feather and down pillows or comforters in breathable fabric bags. Protect synthetic and down-alternative pillows from dust and allergens by stashing them in zippered plastic pouches.
