If, however, your towel and sheet sets are more interchangeable, you may want to organise them by size, type, or colour.
Keep everything else, beach towels, dish towels, table runners, duvet covers and quilts organised together and label your shelves and white pillowcases so that you can reach for them easily.
Make sure to put your most frequently used items at the front and center of your linen closet and relegate off-season or infrequently-used items to the top shelf or back of your closet.
Use Boxes, Bins And Baskets To Store And Separate Your Linens |
If you have lots of different types and sizes of linens, designate mini storage zones to keep everything neat and easy to locate.
You can use fabric boxes, cloth bins, or lined baskets to separate your different items: bath towels in one, dish towels in another, guest bedroom sheets in another, and so forth.
If you want your linen closet to look straight out of a Marie Kondo episode, invest in coordinating boxes so everything looks clean and uniform and brings you joy.
Don’t Forget About Fabric Bags, Zippered Plastic Pouches And Space-Saving Bags |
For everything that can’t be stored in a box or basket, use old duvet covers that are no longer in rotation. Store duvets, down comforters and feather pillows inside with a dryer sheet and some sprigs of dried lavender.
Extra beach towels, quilts, and pillows can also fit into fabric drawstring bags, which will allow them to breathe a little.
Store Sets Of Sheets in Corresponding Pillowcases |
Gone are the days of pairing cream-coloured pillowcases with your crisp white sheets because you can’t find their match.
Forget frantically digging around in piles of fabric to locate the one navy blue fitted sheet you know is in there somewhere.Instead, fold your sheets neatly, then tuck the entire set inside one of its corresponding pillowcases.
Once you’ve got your linens sorted and organised into different neat piles and storage bins, the labelling can begin.
Being able to distinguish between your full-size and queen-size sheets at a glance will make it a breeze to find exactly what you’re looking for, both when you want to take things out and put them away.
Use An Over-The-Door Rack To Hang Tablecloths And Runners |
A rack on the inside of your closet door is perfect for storing table runners and tablecloths neatly.
Hanging these items doesn’t just make them easy to see and access, it also helps keep them dust- and wrinkle-free so you can pull them out for a dinner party at a moment’s notice.
