The linen closet is the bane of every neat freak’s existence. Somehow, this one small closet attracts clutter much faster than other areas of the home. As we enter a new (hopefully less cluttered) year, we found a few ideas to inspire our own linen closet organization.
This linen closet is every perfectionists dream! Julie Blanner painted the inside of her linen closet (a place that usually is neglected) a light color to create a brighter space, making it easier to find things. If this was my linen closet, I think I’d leave the door open all the time!
No linen closet, no problem! Ella Claire added these practical yet beautiful shelves to her bathroom to create the storage space her home was lacking.
Seeking Lavender Lane shares a great step-by-step guide for those that aren’t quite sure where to begin in their organizational efforts. Make sure you head over to her blog to see the before photo of this closet, it’s very relatable and will give you hope for your own closet.
While many people choose smaller baskets for their closet, Little Glass Jar uses larger metal bins. This creates such a clean feel to her closet while keeping all those smaller items in their place.
For some reason, most homes have wire shelving in their linen closets. If this aspect of your closet bothers you, head over to Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry to see her solution!
The large baskets Clean Mama uses create such a uniform feel. The best part about this closet organization though is the guest basket. No more digging around for clean (and relatively unwrinkled) sheets and towels once the guests arrive!
If you’ve organized and decluttered yet you still need more space, check out this great idea from The Creativity Exchange. She uses a shoe shelf to create extra shelving in her linen closet. Head over to her blog for all the details!
This closet was bursting at the seams before Honey We’re Home tackled it. She was able to get rid of things that were creating excess bulk in her closet while still keeping all the extra decor items she loved. I’m always surprised at how many things I have in my linen closet that I truly don’t need anymore.
Adding storage to the door seems to be a no-brainer. IHeart Organizing used these baskets on the back of the door in addition to some new bins to add more organized storage to her closet. She admits that after finishing this project, she left the closet door open all weekend. We don’t blame her one bit!
The Sunny Side Up shares lots of great organizing advice on her blog, but my favorite was the reminder that sometimes you just need to refold all those blankets (and maybe get rid of a few) to feel more organized.
After so much research, I think I’m more than ready to attack my cluttered linen closet. I can’t think of a better way to start off the new year. Here’s to a more organized 2018!
