As summer comes to a close, I always feel like it is a good time to refresh the organization of extra towels and sheets.
Friends and clients often say to me that they have a hard time figuring out where to store their extra linens and there isn’t enough space. Chests, dressers and linen presses are great pieces of furniture for storage if you don’t have enough built-ins.
A vintage armoire can serve as a great storage spot for extra blankets and towels,
and built-in cabinets in bathrooms can be practical and pretty if you have space to build them in.
I love the look of the glass front doors.
I’ve mentioned this trick before, but placing linens within pillowcases helps to keep them organized. I need someone to teach me how to fold the bottom sheet that tightly….
Using simple ribbons can transform the look of your linen closet for linens you don’t use on a regular basis. If you have a guest room that doesn’t require regular sheet changing this would be a good way to not mix them in with your other sheet sets.
Here is an interesting idea: place your linen storage in a medium traffic area, thus forcing you to stay organized!
Determining what needs to get stored or organized and then finding the solution is a good way to tackle some organizational needs.
