How To Organize Your Linen Closet

There are few things in the home more pleasing to the eye than a well organized linen closet. Many people’s linen closets are complete nightmares, with too many items in not enough space. While it’s not something you normally notice until you go to grab a towel, a pillowcase or a new set of sheets, your linen closet could probably do with some serious reorganizing. Below are some tips to help you achieve a well organized linen closet that is a breeze to get things in and out of.

Purge

One of the main causes of linen closet woes is people’s reluctance to purge. They just keep accumulating, and never get rid of or repurpose things they are probably unlikely to use again. If you can’t bring yourself to purge, or are worried you will throw or give away something and will regret it later, a self storage unit is a great way to set things aside temporarily, without getting rid of them. Storage pricing varies, but you should be able to find something that suits your needs and budget fairly easily.

By Function

If you have pillow cases on the same shelf as towels, bed sheets, and duvet covers, you might want to consider separating things on specified shelves: one shelf for the bedroom, one for the bathroom, one for the kitchen; one for guests, one for family, so on and so forth. If there is no method to the madness in a linen closet, it just makes using the space that much less enjoyable.

Self Storage

If you have too much going on in the closet and nowhere else to keep things you aren’t currently using, or don’t see yourself using in the future, a self storage unit might be your best, maybe even your only option. Speak to your local self storage facility about storage pricing and free up space in your linen closet. You might want to store linens that you are going to give to the kids when they go away to school, or move out on their own following high school. You may also store linens you plan to donate to the salvation army or a local shelter.

Organizing your linen closet doesn’t take a ton of work and can do wonders for your sense of orderliness around the home. If you are debating what to keep and what to donate, keeping it tucked away in a self storage unit allows you to make those decisions, without having to get rid of things you might decide you actually wish you’d kept.
