5 Inspiring Linen Closets (& What Makes Them Work!)

  1. I really like all of these ideas, but especially like the one from A Bowl Full of Lemons. I really like those baskets and the clear storage containers. While I like to say my linen closet is organized, after seeing these, I think I need to get back to the drawing board. Will be paying a visit to the Container Store at Green Hills to see what goodies they have that I can use! Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today! I look forward to exploring yours more, especially since we live in the same area! Have a great day! Hugs!

  2. Hi Caroline, the tips you listed are great. To keep my linen closet organized, I use lots of baskets and try to place the most used items in center view and within reach. This way, there will be less chances to make a big mess when locating a needed item.

  3. Love the idea of putting sheets inside the pillow cases. I had never thought of that. My son has a tendency to get into the linen closets for something so I put the dangerous stuff (medicine, batteries, light bulbs) on the top and items like his bath towels and bandaids on the bottom.

    1. As a pediatric nurse, I love love love keeping safety in mind. So smart to keep the dangerous stuff out of reach. Thanks for stopping by, Rachel!!

  4. This is what I want my closet to look like! I love how you stored the sheets inside the pillow cases. That is something I need to do! I also store my cotton balls and Q-tips in glass jars similar to the ones you have,

  5. great tips! I’m organizationally challenged (it just doesn’t come naturally to me), but bins and baskets have been a huge help. And I recently learned that my husband can fold sheets way better than me so now that’s his job 😉 Thanks for sharing!

    1. I love how you guys are dividing and conquering organizing by playing to your strengths. We do the same thing at our house!
