How to: Organize your linen closet

A 12-step program to help you rehabilitate your linen closet.

Is your linen closet a wasteland of tattered terry-cloth and threadbare linens? Our simple 12-step program will help you rehabilitate the space and turn it into an oasis.


1 Outfit your closet with adjustable shelves placed 10 to 12 inches apart. Leave room between the top of a stack and the shelf above for air circulation.

2 Organize linens by type (bed, bath, table), then by room (master bedroom, master bath, kids’ bedrooms). In this closet, the second shelf from the top has master bed linens on the left and master bath towels on the right. The son’s linens are on the next shelf down – towels on the left, bedding in the centre. The daughter’s linens are on the bottom shelf.
