A linen closet is a great place to store all of your bedding and towels. But if it’s cluttered, it can be hard to find what you need when you need it.

Soon you’ll be able to find everything you need without even having to look for it!

Before you get started, take everything out of the closet. Yes, everything. This may seem like a daunting task, but it’s necessary in order to really declutter and organize the space.

Declutter Your Linen Closet

A linen closet can be a great storage space for extra blankets, towels and sheets. However, it can also quickly become a cluttered mess.

If you’re struggling to keep your linen closet organized, here are a few tips to help you declutter.

Donate Linens You Don’t Use

If you only have a few minutes to spend on each task, make a decision and stick with it.

Haven’t used it in a while? Donate it. Looking a little worn? Your nearest animal shelter would love it. Has it been taking up space in the back for far to long? It’s time to part with it.

The linen closet is valuable storage area. If you haven’t used it in a while, it’s time to part with it. 

Maximize Space

Refold your bulky linens to help create a cohesive, organized look while maximizing your closet space.

Learn to fold bed sheets properly so they stay nice and neat. You’ll also be amazed at the extra space you gain.

Organize Your Closet by Category

There’s nothing worse than needing a towel in a hurry only to spend time searching for one in a cluttered linen closet. Map out a plan of what goes where and stick to it. 

Group bath towels, hand towels and washcloths together, but in their respective piles. I enjoy taking it a step further and organizing by color.

If you have a few extra minutes, try different folds and rolls to see what suits you and your space best.

Keep bed linens grouped together by size or room. You can also fold them up and tuck them into one of the set’s pillow cases.

If you have the extra space, organize and store your extra pillows, blankets and throws with your bedding as well.

If you’re running low on storage space, consider using vacuum storage space saving bags. They may be one of the best investments you make and will shrink your pillows and winter king comforter down to nothing!

Use Boxes and Baskets to Organize Smaller Loose Items

Extra storage space can be used to house hand soap, lotions, beach towels, or other miscellaneous needs in decorative boxes or baskets to maximize space.

They’ll also offer easy access when you need to grab few items or check the stock level of toiletries. If you’re crafty, make a few basket labels during your next organizing break.

We hope these tips have helped you see that decluttering and organizing your linen closet can be simple, quick, and easy tasks.
