There’s a wide range of items you could store in a linen closet, but that doesn’t mean it will all fit. Set clear parameters on the types of things you’d like inside, then put things that don't fit elsewhere.
Here are some tips to declutter your linen closet:
Tip 1: Drape blankets on the linen closet door – Install a couple of slim towel bars to keep throws handy yet tidy.
Tip 2: Add a tray for table linens – Then you will be able to carry everything to the table to set it. Stash napkin rings and tea lights in wide canisters for easy access.
Tip 3: Tuck bedding in baskets – Give messy sheet sets a labeled drop spot using a medium size basket and you won’t have to stress about folding perfectly anymore.
Tip 4: Make more room for towels – Use hanging shelves for hand towels, so they don’t get swallowed by stacks.
Tip 5: Keep track of toiletries – See how many soap bars and razors from the value pack are left with a clear caddy and drawers.
Tip 6: Put big items down low – You’ll be less tempted to squeeze stuff between extra pillows and quilts when they’re out of reach.
Tip 7: Hang a step stool on the door so you can quickly access what’s on the top shelf.
Remember, to follow these tips to have an organized linen closet that is family friendly.
