Who wouldn’t love to have a linen closet worthy of a home design magazine? Everyone! But let’s be honest, your linen closet is probably overflowing with years – or maybe even with decades worth of accumulated bedding, sheets, tablecloths, and towels.
Say goodbye to your teetering stacks of towels and piles of sheets. We will show you how to get your linen closet magazine-worthy with the following tips.
Take Everything Out
Most of the time, things like sheets and towels get shoved in a closet to be dealt with at a later date. So the best place to start when organizing a linen closet is to remove everything and start purging. The process is quite simple: get rid of the linens that haven’t been used or touched in years, but make sure you keep seasonal linen staples.
Sort Everything By Type
Once you’ve decided what to keep and toss, it’s time to sort the items into categories. There are many ways to do so, but we recommend storing linens by type and room. For example, put all the same size sheets together, and divide them by bedroom. Like matching your socks after a load of laundry, make as many towels and sheet sets as you can.
Invest In Baskets And Bins
Use baskets, bins, and bags to store your linen and any related items. These recipients are a great choice for organizing your linen and making the closet look clean and clutter-free. Moreover, these recipients come in all sizes and can fit neatly on any shelf. If you want a low-cost option, you can also install adjustable shelf dividers to keep your sheets, towels, and other linens separate.
Find The Right Method To Fold Your Linen
Choosing how to fold and store linen can be tricky, and it really depends on how much room you have. Our advice? When it comes to towels, generally the best thing is to use the rolling method. As for sheets, the best way to store them is inside the matching pillowcase. For larger, bulkier bedding or thick sheets, you can try a vacuum-sealed, airtight storage bag to shrink them.
Donate The Things You Don’t Want
Rather than finding a spot for the hideous towel set your aunt gifted you ten years ago, donate it instead. And this also applies to towels and any sort of linen you don’t use anymore. Give it a good airing and wash if it needs a bit of a refresh, and find it a new home.
Having an organized linen closet is wonderful for many reasons – for starters, it helps relieve stress because everyone knows where to find what they need, and makes your home feel more organized, clean, and harmonious.
