Usually, linen closets start neatly organized and lovely, but after a while, they tend to devolve into some pile-up of good intentions gone bad. Here are some seven ideas which you can steal from our best linen closets, to aid in keeping your towels, sheets, and blankets tidy and beautiful every time.
Fold sheets and towels and ensure the edges face the back
After folding the linens, with the sides facing the rear, stack them on the shelves for an organized look. You won’t have to see the folds and messy edges every time you get to open the door when you fold them that way. You can fold the sheets to store them together with your
If you are shorts on space, but roll them
A great way of saving space to organize throw blankets and towels is usually by rolling them. It comes in handy, especially when the shelves are a bit shallow.

Consider shelves with ventilation
Linens tend to get musty when lying around closed doors. However, proper circulation of air can help curb stagnation and humidity – a ventilated shelf comes in handy towards encouraging airflow. You can even store your best wireless bra for plus size in this closet.

Gather together and confine the small stuff
Most times, people store more than just linen in their closets. Adding hooks, baskets, and bins can help in keeping toiletries and smaller linens like pillowcases and face cloths organized in both an orderly and artful way.

Shield against moths
To the best of us, moths usually happen! To get rid of these insects that keep devouring linens, ensure everything you keep in your closet has been properly laundered. Moth larvae love to eat some keratin, proteins found on our nails, skin, and hair. Also, for extra protection, you can add lavender sachets or cedar blocks to the closet. Moths hate these scents and humans enjoy them, a reason enough to get the scents. This will be a good place to store your linen front closure bras for plus size.
Add folding boards
Consider adding an in-built folding board, especially if you are building the linen closet from scratch.
Display your linens if you don’t have a closet
If you stay in an apartment, having a linen closet would be a luxury. There are other different ways that you can store and organize your sheets and towels if you don’t have a dedicated cabinet for the linens. Carts, Armoires, and other types of storage furniture can work perfectly well. You can alternatively add some open wall-mount shelves to the bathroom.
