10 Must Have Products to Arrange Your Linen Closet

As we are Spring-Cleaning our house, one of the areas often neglected is the Linen Closet. We all have “one” (even if not strictly a closet). Mine is actually just a small part of my medicine closet with everything shoved in together. I use this space a lot but never think to organize it. I just throw things in there and hope for the best. This year, it’s time for that to change so I’m prioritizing the linen closet this Spring Cleaning season.

Why are there so many towels in different shades of gray? I know you keep that towel to dry off the dog or to clean up a mess – but honestly – you need to ditch the old and bring in some organization. Once you are finished, you’ll actually be proud of that closet and want to show it off to guests (when we are allowed to have visitors again, that is).

Our go-to mantra is - first you must take everything out of the closet, go through everything – yes, we said everything - and purge old, unused items. Once you have your items pared down and ready to organize, don’t just shove everything back in haphazardly! You need a thought-out system to make the most of available space, keep everyday products easily accessible, and look good doing it. Here are our top products from mDesign for your Linen Closet Overhaul!

How to create an organized linen closet with just 10 simple items:

1 Closet Fabric Storage Boxes with Clear Windows

These boxes are designed to fit sweaters and other bulky items. They’re perfect for storing sheet sets and extra throw blankets. Mix and match different colors and sizes for every need.

2 Shelf Dividers

Folding your sheets and towels (yes even those pesky fitted sheets) on a shelf can be daunting. But adding a few shelf dividers can organize your linens and keep them separated. mDESIGN TIP: Check out this video on how to fold a fitted sheet!

3 Apothecary Jars

Use canisters for cotton balls, Q-tips, nail files – any small item that you need help storing and organizing.

4 Large Plastic Lidded Boxes

Store all of your medicines and bandages in the big container to keep them in one place. Then if you need to move the box the contents will remain contained. Add labels to them to help keep your family organized!

5 Woven Baskets

Great for storing backstock of toothpaste, deodorant, and unopened bottles of shampoo. Plus, they add a natural touch to your closet.

6 Laundry Hamper

Stick this in the bottom of your closet to keep dirty towels off the bathroom floor.

7 Nail Polish Organizer

This cool looking organizer is great for harnessing random bottles of nail polish. No more digging in a big box; every color is neatly displayed.

8 Bamboo Bins

I put nail polish remover, lotions and bath bombs in these neat little containers that are also very beautiful! Don’t forget to label these organizers as well!

9 Plastic Storage Shelf

Needing some extra space? Try adding one of these shelves. It provides additional vertical space and folds away when not in use.

10 2-Tier Lazy Susan

Adding a spinner to your linen closet will help keep your family’s medicines, bathroom essentials, and other necessities close at hand. No need to move items in front to get to ones in the back, just spin it around until you find exactly what you are looking for.

The mixture of wood, seagrass, and canvas adds an eclectic, yet cohesive look to your closet. Your closet will look so awesome that you will actually want guests to peek inside! Now, go on and organize that Linen Closet. You got this!
