Few things are as satisfying as a neat linen closet. (Right?) Pro organizer Beth Penn shares her best shelf-help strategies.
1. Bedding Bins
Assign a labeled basket to each bedroom in the house and add a set of sheets or two. You’ll never have to dig through piles of mismatched pillowcases again.
To buy: Beach house bins, $20 each (large); containerstore.com.
2. Duvet Roll
That bulky spare comforter doesn’t need to take up prime real estate. Give it a space-saving upper-corner spot after folding it in half lengthwise, then rolling it up like a sleeping bag.
3. Towel Stash
Stacks of washcloths and hand towels tend to topple. Instead, corral rolled ones in a wire bin. (Bonus: You can cram more in.)
4. Toiletries Kit
A little trick with a big impact: Keep a ready-to-go grouping of soap, shampoo, and other overnight essentials so you don’t have to hunt around for them every time you have weekend guests.
To buy: Stackable wire basket, $15; containerstore.com.
5. Supply Station
You need access to bulk goods (toilet paper rolls, tissue boxes), but who wants to look at that stuff? A tall tote keeps them handy yet hidden.
To buy: Mini hamper, $40; thelaundress.com.
