Today Becky from Organizing Made Fun returns to our Operation: Organization series, you can see her command center post from last summer here, she’s bringing more closet inspiration for us today!


I feel like having an organized linen closet is essential. Perhaps your linen closet is not in a conventional place or you’ve had to make one someone in your home, but we have to store our linens somewhere so I want to share some tips to keep them stored neatly and easily.



We are fortunate to live in an old home built in the 1940s and it has such great built-ins and our hallway linen closet is one of my favorite! It’s rather large so I feel very fortunate. But, keeping it tidy is very important.



We have a lot of visitors that stay without throughout the year, so I like to keep stocked up on linens for the beds that we use – since we have two ottomans that convert into twin beds I need to have a few spare sets of sheets for those.



I went in to tweak my linen closet because it was getting messy – as you can see before. Not horrible, but messy.


I have a nice guest amenities basket that I keep in this linen closet. It is filled with all kinds of goodies for my guests to use, if necessary. I pull it out and set it up when they come to stay.


I like using baskets in the linen closet because it helps to keep the sheets and blankets tidy and from spilling out. But, if you don’t have the room for that, you can always opt for a shelf divider instead. Always label everything – I used chalkboard labels that were wood and then used chalk ink markers to label each size.


I roll the beach towels. The kids aren’t yanking out the towels from back and making a mess of other towels. It’s like how I fold their shirts and pants in their drawers and they can see what they want without making a mess of everything else. I keep the swim bag fully stocked with sunscreen and goggles.

It’s not a dramatic before and after, but with a little tweaking it is making a big difference in there. I’ve been able to maintain it easier.

The linen closet also has a whole bunch of drawers. I actually have several empty! The two on the right bottom are empty so that when we have a guest, I can use those for my daughter as her “dresser” or to put extra pillows, if necessary. I have another drawer just for pillow cases – cause we have a bunch and the kids like to have a cute one with their bedding instead of the matching ones. There are also table linens in another two drawers and one drawer has old sheets and towels for that “just in case” something goes terribly wrong and we have spillage of some sort to clean up and I need to grab something fast! What kind of linen organizing do you do? A closet, a drawer, a cabinet, nothing? Any other great ideas for organizing your linens and towels?
