Linen Closet Organization

After spending hours on laundry the last thing you want to do is stuff your linens haphazardly onto shelves. If you have fought your last battle trying to shut the linen closet door give these linen closet organization ideas a try.

Linen Closet Organization

Purge, Purge, Purge

When it comes to organization the first step is always to purge. The reality is, most of us keep many more items than we actually use. If you need hard numbers to decide what to keep here’s what Real Simple suggests.

Try to limit yourself to three sets of sheets per bed and as few as three sets of bath sheets or towels, hand towels, and washcloths per person (more if you change towels daily, fewer if the men in your household have never picked up a washcloth). This gives you one set in use, one in the hamper, and one in the closet ready for action. You’ll need only one or two sets for guests (one on the bed and one in the hamper or closet).

To make the purge step easier automatically get rid of any sheets or towels that have ripped hems or ragged edges. You know you’ve had those same linens in your closet for more than a decade. It’s probably time to bid more than a few of them adieu.

Label It Up

You may be perfection at keeping things organized, but if there is even one other person in your home (particularly spouses or children) you may want a more detailed organization plan. Better Homes & Gardens encourages using labels.

Keep linens organized based on where you plan to use them. Sort sheets for each bedroom in the house into their own storage bins so finding the right set is always easy.

Once you have a bin for each room your teenager has no excuse for not knowing where his clean sheets go. Now that you have him doing his own laundry! Wait, you aren’t getting him involved in the laundry?? Check out these summer chore ideas to get your little people involved in keeping things neat and tidy.

How to Fold Those Sheets???

Ok, ok, we know what you’re thinking. Organized linen closets are all well and good, but how do you actually fold those darn sheets?!! Imperfect Homemaking has a full tutorial. We particularly loved their tips for putting sheet sets inside the pillowcase. That’s pure genius!

Method 1: Place the sheets inside the pillowcase and fold the excess pillow case under.
Method 2:  Fold the pillowcase in thirds lengthwise and then wrap across the stacked sheets.
Method 3: Simply fold the pillowcase and place on top of the sheets
Method 4: Fold the pillowcase lengthwise to make it the same width as your folded sheets.  Wrap around both sheets creating a nice smooth front to display in your linen closet.

Customer Showcase: Functional Beauty

A master bedroom remodel wouldn’t be complete without a new closet. The theme of this closet was functional beauty. Beautiful finishes with lots of functional organization is the closet design everyone dreams of!

Functional Beauty

Our customer in Dallas, TX added a closet on to their master bedroom remodel and wanted a functional yet beautiful space when expanding. Their builder recommended Closet Envy to create a designer closet.

The customer wanted an island in a closet with relatively small floor space. By keeping the island thin we were able to make her closet dreams come true.

We were able to utilize the tall ceilings to add extra storage. Pull down hang bars are perfect for the out of season clothes. 

We also added upper cabinet storage all the way to the ceiling. This allowed us to utilize all the space while hiding the out of season bins cabinet behind doors. 

We  incorporated a jewelry drawer organizer under one window in the closet. Can we just take a moment to admire the fact that there are windows in this closet?!! Bright light is bliss!

A small track system with hooks create the perfect spot to hang necklaces on the wall.

Another addition to the closet is a set of dresser drawers. Nothing says functional storage like a set of drawers!

We were able to select beautiful finishes to compliment the customer’s newly remodeled master bath! Glass fronted cabinets add a bit of extra elegance to the design.

A pull out belt rack is another wonderful closet feature. There when you need it, and hidden away when you don’t.

How to Store Winter Gear

Whether your winter was long or short it’s finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

Whether your winter was long or short it's finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

How to Store Winter Gear

Winter Coats

Winter coats, by nature, are large bulky items. So we wondered if there was a space saving way to store them.  Good Housekeeping had some great ideas!

Do up buttons, zip up zippers, and empty out pockets; then hang structured or down coats on thick hangers inside a breathable garment bag. Polyfill-stuffed coats can go in vacuum-seal bags, compressed halfway for space.

Whether your winter was long or short it's finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

We’re ready to put those coats far, far away! How about you? Bring on the warm weather, pools, picnics, and backyard barbecues.

Boots, Hats, Gloves

The accessories of winter can often be difficult to store. How many times have you had to buy new gloves because one is missing? Or no matter where you look, you can’t find your favorite stocking cap? The Spruce has these interesting suggestions for storing boots, hats, and gloves!

In my home, we keep hats, gloves, and scarfs stashed in our entryway during the winter. When spring rolls around those items are used to stuff my tall winter boots so, they keep their shape. Here’s how:

  1.  I make sure my boots are clean and dry inside and out.  This chore involves brushing all the debris from the bottom and wiping down the exterior and interior of each boot.
  2.  I place a sachet of baking soda inside each boot and let it sit for 24 hours.
  3.  The next day I take the sachet out and replace it with a fresh one.
  4.  Afterward I line each boot with a thin, clean rag made from an old sheet or shirt.
  5.  Next I stuff clean winter hats, scarfs and gloves into airtight food storage bags.
  6.  Then I use the filled storage bags to stuff my boots.

When the task is complete, my boots are placed on a shelf in my closet. The shelf is one foot above the floor. I keep my warm weather shoes under the shelf.

Whether your winter was long or short it's finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

What a great idea for storage! Compact, and all in one place. Say goodbye to missing winter accessories.

Sweaters

If you want to make space for your favorite sun dresses, tank tops, and summer gear it may be time to store away those bulky sweaters. Good Housekeeping advises you store sweaters in plastic bins until cool weather returns.

Fold into thirds, then in half, and stack in a plastic bin with heaviest knits on the bottom. Place white tissue paper between layers if color transfer is a concern or to keep any embellishments from snagging.

Closet Organization by Color vs Item

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you’ve done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It’s time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

By Color

Have you always loved the look of a rainbow? Do you think in color? Perhaps color organization is for you. My Domaine suggests using those skills you learned in elementary art class to get started organizing.

Once you’ve got everything sorted into separate categories, organize clothes by color. Remember that grade-school acronym, Roy G. Biv? Now is the time to use it! Organize by color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Keep white and black on opposite ends.

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you've done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It's time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

One benefit of color organization is that it allows you to get a clear picture of what colors you have. Is your wardrobe heavy in blues and light on…anything else? Color coding allows you to see at a glance if you have way to many items in one color family. On the plus side, it also helps you see what items would go well together.

By Item

If you literally cringe at the thought of having pants mixed in with shirts and sweaters then perhaps organizing by item would be a better fit. CNN Money has these tips to share.

Organize by silhouette, not color. “No one wakes up saying, ‘I am having a purple day,'” said Amy Salinger, a personal stylist. “It’s more about who you will be seeing that day, how you’re feeling and the weather.”

She recommended organizing a wardrobe based on silhouette and then by style. So all the pants go together and then that section is broken down by type: skinny, wide leg, trouser, etc.

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you've done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It's time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

When you organize by type and then silhouette you can easily find the items that fit the occasion or the weather. That is a big plus for busy people, or for those of us that like to hit snooze 18 times and are always running late in the morning!

Why not both?

If you are drawn to the look of a color coordinated closet, but like the functionality of organization by item why not incorporate both? First sort your clothing by type. Hang all the shirts together, and the pants together. Then within the category you can organize by color. It turns out you can have your rainbow cake and eat it too!

Prepare Your Closet Canvas

Before you jump in to organizing your clothes why not take some time to prepare the canvas? A new closet remodel would highlight your colorful and categorized organization in a beautiful way. With our help, your clothes will become the showpieces they have always deserved to be. And you will feel like royalty each morning as you are getting ready for your day.

Closet Organization on a Budget

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don’t have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you’ll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Purging is Free

Here’s some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that one of the biggest steps to organizing your closet is to purge. We’ve shared steps to cull your closet before. This step is the most time consuming, and likely the least fun, but it’s essential to the organization process. The good news is that this process won’t cost you a cent. It may cost you a few hours of your precious time, but the sweat equity will be worth every penny (saved).

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Hanging Space

Did you know that your hangers may be causing some of your organizational issues? All You shares why.

Hangers ensure that clothes stay wrinkle-free but they’re often poorly designed and can take up too much space. There are ingenious space-savers that keep your clothes crisp without all the hang-ups.

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Once you have your items purged you will know how many hangers you need. This is a great item to invest some of your hard earned cash into. Find some slim hangers that will consolidate the space you need to hang your clothes. It’s an added bonus if your hangers have a way to daisy chain them. This will allow you to utilize some of the vertical space as well.

Repurpose Items

When organizing on a budget it helps to think outside the box. There’s no need to shop closet supply specialty items. There are ways to repurpose less expensive items to create simple storage solutions. Life Storage suggests creating your own PVC pipe organization system.

I rarely gave thought to the existence of PVC piping before I began scouring the web in search of new and cheap methods of organizing. Now I know how relevant these plastic tubes really are. They can be used pretty much anywhere for storage, because they come in so many sizes. As far as the closet goes, I wish I’d thought of PVC earlier! Stacking some larger diameter pieces makes for a simple—and really attractive—shoe organizer. Plus, you can add on as your shoe collection grows. Set side by side in a drawer, they make easy dividers for your small pieces, from ties and scarves to socks and underwear.

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Tension rods or bathroom towel rods are another inexpensive way to get organized. Check out these ideas from Life Storage.

Tension rods are a lifesaver when it comes to organizing any room in the house. You can organize your entire closet with them! High heeled shoes can hang from a single rod, while flats and tennis shoes can rest atop two tension rods side by side. It’s easy to organize your scarves in an unused nook. And using s-hooks and a tension rod makes it easy to keep your purses or jewelry in order. Is your closet a reach-in with space on either side of the door that’s annoyingly empty, yet unusable? A couple of tension rods can make that space useful in an instant.

Consider other household items that could be repurposed to fit your closet storage needs. Gather up things like baskets, bins, tubs, or shoe boxes to begin organizing your closet. You might just find that you already have the items you need to create a beautifully organized masterpiece.

It’s Not As Expensive As You Think

You may think that a custom closet is out of reach for your budget. It might surprise you to know the true cost of your dream closet. It never hurts to schedule a free consultation. Perhaps you’ll find that closet is in your budget after all!

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Jewelry and Purses Organization

Jewelry and purses and accessories… oh my! Does it feel like your accessories are slowly taking over your closet? And yet, you can’t help picking up the next adorable item in the new color of the year? It’s ok, we can help with your jewelry and purses organization.

Get Bejeweled

There are many ways to store your jewelry. It all depends on the space you have and the type of jewelry you prefer. Before you begin organizing, lay out all of the jewelry you own. This is a great time to pass on items that you no longer use or wear. Once you know how much jewelry you need to store, and what type it is, you can design the perfect organizational solution.

Do you have mostly rings, bracelets, and earrings? Do you have a drawer system in your closet? Then add drawer dividers to store your favorite jewels. You can get custom designed dividers, or you can DIY your own with a simple silverware organizer. Put your most used items in an easy to reach drawer and then add the remaining items to the back of the drawer or the next available drawer space.

Are you a necklace-a-holic? Have some extra wall space? Consider using a series of hooks to hang all those gorgeous jewels. This organization style has two benefits. One: your necklaces will no longer be a tangled mess! Two: you can easily see what you have, which makes it so much easier to decide what to wear.

Do you have a few items you wear day in and day out? Better Homes & Gardens has this suggestion to make every day easier.

Stow your everyday jewelry in plain sight near your getting-ready station to make it easy to grab your favorite accessories. Keep necklaces knot-free by hanging them on a makeup mirror or a wall-mount hook. Stow the smaller stuff in decorative trays, dishes, or bowls that are big enough so pieces won’t intermix. Keep a small vessel on your nightstand as a safe place to stow the earrings or necklaces you forgot to put away before getting under the covers.

Bag It Up

When you are getting ready to head out the door to you feel like a grocery store clerk? You may not ask “paper or plastic” but we’re guessing you debate “shoulder” or “crossbody” or “tote” or “clutch” or…or…or. If you’ve got more bags that there are months of the year, then it’s time to find an organization solution that works!

Jewelry and purses and accessories... oh my! Does it feel like your accessories are slowly taking over your closet? And yet, you can't help picking up the next adorable item in the new color of the year? It's ok, we can help with your jewelry and purses organization.

First think about how you think about bags. Say that 10 times fast! What we mean is, consider how you categorize bags in your mind. Do you think of them by color? Or by type? Or by size?  Once you know how you search for your bag you will know how to store those bags!

If you search for a bag that will match or coordinate with your outfit, then organize by color! Use a series of cubbies to store your bags where you can see each one. You could also use a bookshelf or the shelf above your closet rod to line up bag after bag.

Jewelry and purses and accessories... oh my! Does it feel like your accessories are slowly taking over your closet? And yet, you can't help picking up the next adorable item in the new color of the year? It's ok, we can help with your jewelry and purses organization.

If you look for bags by type then store them that way as well. Keep all of your clutch bags together in magazine boxes, hang your shoulder bags or crossbody bags where they are easy to use. Good Housekeeping has this suggestion for hanging bags.

Grab a shower hook! Bent to the side, these bathroom staples keep your bags off the floor.

Have a preschooler at home? They can help you organize your bags by size. Biggest to littlest all in a row. Education and free labor all in one. That’s a win win in our book!!

Accessorize Yourself

Are you wondering what other accessories there could possibly be after jewelry and purses? Well…belts, hats, sunglasses, and scarves of course! The items may be different but many of the strategies are the same. Belts, hats, and scarves can all be hung on a series of wall hooks. You can use the back of the closet door to add a hat rack. Or add a tension rod and hang those pesky accessories with shower hooks.

Sunglasses are a whole other ball of wax. You can use a drawer organizer to store those shades with your favorite bling. We also love this sunglasses solution from Cupcakes and Cashmere.

I have quite a few sunglasses, but I can never keep track of them since they’re always strewn about in random spots throughout my place. Yesterday I created a more streamlined solution, while still adhering to the minimalist vibe of my bedroom. I used an extra frame from a recent project (that’s painted the same color as my wall) and used it to corral all of my eyewear. It took only a few minutes to complete!

Sunglasses turned wall art! Now that’s a smart idea!

Closet Organization Hacks for Renters

Renters have the same organizational needs as everyone else, but they have one additional hurdle. Most renters can not put holes in the wall to add organization pieces. Here are our favorite closet organization hacks for renters!

Repurpose Furniture

While you can’t install closet systems in a rental, you can add furniture to your closet. IHeartOrganizing has these suggestions to share.

Utilize a tall bookcase as a temporary closet.  With adjustable shelving, boots and shoes are able to be stored below while a few hooks above offer hanging storage.

Renters have the same organizational needs as everyone else, but they have one additional hurdle. Most renters can not put holes in the wall to add organization pieces. Here are our favorite closet organization hacks for renters!

Take a look around your house to see what furniture might be repurposed  to serve as organization for your messy closet. Use a bookshelf to store folded clothes, or to store shoes. Use baskets on the bookshelf to give you additional storage solutions. You could also add a small dresser or stackable drawers to organize your lingerie, your t-shirts, or your pajamas. Lean a ladder against the wall to add additional hanging space, or simply as a spot to dry your hand washed clothes.

Removable Hooks

It’s true that renters can’t drill holes in the wall, but there is another solution for adding hooks to your closet. Unclutterer loves to use removable hooks.

Apply removable items. I am a huge fan of utilitarian and decorative removable hooks. They’re great for getting so many things up and off the floor.

There are several brands of removable hooks to choose from. Be sure to consider the weight of the items you want to hang. This will determine which hooks you use. You can even find fun hooks to add a bit of whimsy to your apartment closet.

Hooks can help you store hats and belts, but they are also great for organizing accessories. Do you have lots of jewelry? Or scarves? Designate a wall to hang several hooks to keep your accessory stash within easy reach. Hanging accessories also add a lovely design element to your closet. Bonus!

Hanging Organizers

Hanging organizers can offer storage solutions without causing you to break your renters agreement. Unclutterer has tips for using hanging organizers.

Use existing hardware to support alternatives. Hang a closet doubler from a rod to extend hanging area in the vertical space. Over-the-door storage pockets, baskets, and specialty items can be helpful.

A closet doubler will…well, double your hanging space. If you have a lot of clothes, this may be a great solution for you. Hang your summer clothes on one rod and your winter clothes on the other. Be sure to leave some single hanging space for long dresses or pants. Over-the-door storage organizers can hold not only shoes, but also sweaters or t-shirts or hats. You could also find hanging drawers to add organizational solutions. Drawers are a great way for storing socks or pajamas. Consider what items are causing you organization strife and then decide which type of organizer will work best for you. There are many ways to create your own organizational solutions.

How to Utilize Closet Corners

Does your closet have a few dark holes of wasted space? Think about the pesky areas where two walls meet, the dreaded corners. Learn how to utilize closet corners!

Adjust Closet Rods

Many builders grade closets have overlapping closet rods. This design creates awkward corners that are difficult to utilize. What can you do to fix this overlap issue? Organizing Junkie has a few suggestions on how to fix this problem.

For a quick fix, shorten one of the closet rods by at least 24” and then reinforce the hanging rod with a closet support bracket if needed.  One closet rod will stop short of the adjacent wall, creating not only more hanging space but also making it easier to see and access clothes on both sides.

Instead of overlapping the closet rods, extend one closet rod all the way to the wall and allow the other to stop short. Be sure there is approximately 12 inches of empty wall space between the edge of the closet rod and the fixture on the next wall, whether it’s another closet rod or a beautiful shelf full of shoes. We vote for the shelf full of shoes! It’s like art for your closet!

Use Corner Cabinets

Another design option for your closet corners is a corner cabinet. You may like the look of two cabinets straight cabinets side by side, or you may prefer an L shaped cabinet in the corner of your closet. Either way, a cabinet gives you many storage options in your closet. Baskets or bins are the perfect way to store a variety of items. Or you can use this space to display bags and hats.

Creative Corner Solutions

Adjusting closet rods or using corner cabinets are common answers to the closet corner conundrum. But HGTV shared a unique solution.

Even in our homes, corners are generally considered dead space, but in closets they can be utilized in a surprising way to free up space for additional shelves and compartments. Lisa Adams, CEO and designer of LA Closet Design, suggests incorporating a corner carousel into your closet design to really utilize a corner that would otherwise go unused.

Picture it like a spiral staircase for your clothes. Not only would this allow you more storage space, it would be a fabulous design feature. Like the crowning jewel of your closet!
