How To Organize Your Linen Closet.
Re-organizing this house before we put it on the market made me realize that I really, really like having a place for everything and everything in its place! I was surprised at how much my husband loves it too! One of the great things about moving is that you get to start over with your home. I plan on spending some time making sure that all the spaces in our new home are maximized for storage (since it’s a smaller home). Here are lots of great ideas on how to begin Organizing Your Linen Closet.

Most people don’t have a large linen closet so it’s really easy to just stuff things in there. But there’s something really lovely about an organized linen closet, isn’t there! To help inspire you I’ve gathered some great linen closet organization ideas.
Organizing Your Linen Closet
When you organize your linen closet, you’ll feel so much better! You will be able to see where everything is and what’s in there. Most of us have had those days when you open the door to your linen closet and an avalanche falls on you when you open the door. These tips will help you get motivated to organize and clean your linen closet once and for all.
- Get rid of old items you no longer use. If you have towels or sheets that are stained or shaggy, turn them into dust rags or toss them out. There is no need to keep things you know you’ll never use.
- Organize everything so similar items are together. Keep towels together, sheet sets together, and toiletries together. It will save you time when you need to grab something in a hurry.
- Label where items belong so everyone knows where to put them. Any item that can be labeled should be. It will motivate you to keep it organized once you have it done.
1. Plastic Baskets
Use plastic baskets to contain like items and don’t forget to label! The Dollar Tree has these baskets so you can make your linen closet look cute for not much money! See the before and after at A Bird and A Bean
2. File Sorter Organizer
What a great idea! Use an office file sorter to hold washcloths! See this linen closet makeover at The Real Thing With The Coake Family
3. Towel Rack Organizer
Love the idea of using towel racks on the inside of the linen closet door via BHG. You could hang your tablecloths or tea towels on them. I roll my big bath towels like those pictured above instead of folding them.
4. Shelf Dividers
Place shelf dividers between stacks to keep them separate and again, labels help. See the full makeover at Simplicity In The South
5. Utilize Floor Space
Use large baskets or bins on the floor of the closet. See the Before & After Linen Closet Makeover at The Happy Housie.
