Linen Cabinet and Closet Organization Ideas

Sometimes all it takes is a stack of properly folded towels, or the addition of a few baskets and bins, to make all the difference in organizing a linen closet.

Proper folding, plus a few baskets and containers, can help keep a linen closet organized.

While a linen closet is optimally used to store bedding and bathroom items, like towels, sheets and blankets, the truth is it often becomes a store-and-go hideaway for random household items.

But that doesn't mean an organized linen closet is out of reach. In fact, one of the first steps toward achieving an organized space is cleaning out the closet to make room for the things that should be stored in it. That means small appliances, lost toys and other out-of-place items should get the boot. The same goes for old towels and worn sheets — put them in a separate place to use as cleaning rags or toss them.

Proper folding techniques are also helpful to maintain organization amongst the items that do belong in a linen closet. Fold all linens so that they are neatly stacked, making sure they are not piled too high to keep them from falling over. All linens should also be sorted into categories, so they are easy to find. This means everything from sheets to blankets to towels to dinner napkins should have its own section if possible.
