Linen Closet Organizing Checklist

The 12 steps to take to straighten out your linen closet―and keep it that way.

  • Assess your closet. Look in the closet to check out the current setup. Note that sheets and towels are easier to organize—and less likely to topple—if they’re placed in short stacks on multiple shelves rather than piled up on just a couple.
  • Rejigger the height of your shelves. If they aren’t fixed in place, consider changing the height of shelves according to these guidelines: Ten inches between shelves is good for sheets and table linens, 12 to 16 inches for towels, and 18 inches or more (measured from the ceiling) for the top shelf, for blankets and other seasonal items.
  • Streamline your space. If your shelves are fixed at inconvenient levels and you don’t want to take on the cost of reworking them, make the most of the space by devising your own system of baskets, shelf dividers, and plastic-covered wire bins that attach to the underside of existing shelves.
