1. Organize with decorative baskets and bins
You can use baskets and bins to group similar items together, making it easier to find something when looking for it.
It also helps to conceal some items which you do not necessarily want to see each time you open your closet, like cleaning supplies and toilet paper.

2. Creative extra storage with an over the door organizer
If you’ve got some space in your linen closet, you can add an over the door organizer to create even more storage space.
Use this storage to store smaller items that you need more often so that they’ll be easier to grab.

3. Roll your towels and/or blankets
Maximize your space by rolling your towels and blankets and stacking them on top of each other instead of folding them.
You can keep similar colored towels together to create a more cohesive look and feel.

4. Label your storage containers
If you’re using baskets and bins for storage, you might find yourself looking through a number of them to find the item you want.
Adding labels to your storage containers can help you find items quicker and will help make sure that you store items in the correct containers going forward.

5. Add a cute curtain
Add a small curtain to sections of your linen closet if you don’t want the items stored there to be immediately visible.
This also helps make your linen closet look neater and will help you hide sections that you don’t find aesthetically appealing.

6. Use wire baskets or clear containers
If you don’t want to label containers in your linen closet, another solution is to use clear containers or wire baskets.
This also makes it easy to find what you’re looking for as you can see exactly what you have and what goes where.

7. Store sheets in pillowcases
Fold your sheets and insert them into their matching pillow cases before storing them in your linen closet.
This is a quick and easy way to make sure that all your sets always stay together.

8. Add towel bars
Add towels bars to the inside of your linen closet door to store sets of clean and ready to use towels.
This will make it easier for guests to find the towels they can use for their next shower.

9. Use a hamper
Add an elegant hamper at the bottom of your linen closet to store used linens, rags, and towels.
This keeps everything out of sight until laundry day.
