Okay… this has to be my favorite linen closet! Everything from the white metal containers on the top shelf to the wire baskets on the bottom, it has such a cute farmhouse vibe to it.

Already have wire shelves in your linen closet and just need some ideas for new organizers? If so, then this is the perfect tutorial for you! I love how she has a nice variety of baskets and bins with everything from those folding fabric bins up top… to the different sized woven baskets to hold just about anything. She also put one of those super easy command broom hooks on the back of the door to add even more functionality. Wire shelves and a variety of storage bins… I don’t think it gets easier than that!

For years, I’ve had a very small linen closet so I can totally relate to this one! I love how she used those high sided fabric bins and labeled them so she can easily figure out where things are. She then paired the bins with pulled out plastic drawers for the smaller things and labeled those as well! Everything is neatly stored and has its place to go back to once you’re done using it. Maximize that small space with these easy tips!

Now, this linen closet is goals… don’t you agree?! If you’re open to a DIY project and ready to break out the tools, then this one is going to be a great place to start! She did a complete makeover on this linen closet and I have to say… the before and after pictures make me jealous lol. She started by ripping out the old wire shelves, lining the entire closet with cedar planks and built new wood shelves with premade boards making it pretty quick. But it doesn’t end there! I love the wire baskets and the fabric bins with a “lid” giving it a super clean look. I can almost smell the cedar from here!

Speaking of removing wire shelves… This awesome bathroom linen closet makeover breaks down the entire process from start to finish! They used 15″ deep MDF boards and simple white brackets to build the five shelves which turned out amazing. I really love the wooden shelf look and then she went to town organizing all the contents of the closet
Using a mixture of metal bins, wire baskets, mason jars, and big woven bins… she really did a great job setting up each level. By placing the toilet paper (probably the most frequently accessed item) right in the middle and the larger bins on the bottom, you can tell that some thought was put into where things should go. Remodel your linen closet with this functional tutorial!

This is the perfect linen closet makeover if you want something more than just different organizers but don’t want to build your shelves! She started by removing the existing shelves and painted the brackets white to match which really made a big difference (the before and after pictures are awesome)
While everything was removed from the closet she also downsized all the extra sets of sheets and other things that weren’t really necessary. It’s always so satisfying to get rid of stuff your not using, or planning on using, anymore! After the downsizing, she then moved on to putting the larger organizers on the top and bottom shelves since those things aren’t accessed as much. Then finished everything off with those awesome fabric-lined baskets give the entire closet a very clean and fresh look. I love how this one turned out!

There’s nothing better than a simple organization job that you can knock out in a few hours! This is one of those… No painting or remodeling here, just pure organization. I’m really loving the wire baskets and the woven bins she used fit perfectly. Plus, that gray hamper on the bottom is such an easy way to collect dirty laundry and bring it to the washer all at once.

Here’s another great makeover for those small hallway linen closets! I love the beachy / cottage vibe it has and that big toilet paper bin at the bottom is perfect. She found all the storage bins at Target so you could potentially get something like this done within a couple of hours… even including a (long) trip to Target. Like many of these tutorials, if you keep the larger items you don’t access much on the top and the ones you do need all the time in the middle, it will make your life so much easier. Organize your closet and hit the beach!

Going with a black and white theme for your linen closet?! If so, then this easy tutorial will definitely give you some ideas! I love how she kept the wire shelves and they look great with all the other black wire baskets further bringing together the color scheme. But my favorite organizer in this closet has to be the hamper on wheels at the bottom. If you have enough room or wan to make room by removing the bottom shelf, that is definitely something that will come in handy. Make those wire shelves blend in with this super fun tutorial!
Simple Ways To Declutter Linen Closet

Look at all this storage! Plenty room for hanging blankets and enough organizers to store all the linens you’ll ever need. I love how she used basically the same bins but in different sizes for the entire closet giving it a very put-together look. With the large pillows up top and the winter bedding tucked away on the bottom, this closet is definitely organized with some thought behind it!
But my favorite part has to be the way she is putting the blankets on the hangers making it insanely easy to pull a few out when guests are over… Whether you’re reorganizing your closet at the moment or not, I’m sure you could use this trick almost anywhere at your house. Hang up those blankets and create more room for storage bins with this makeover!

If you’re a floral lover like myself, you’re going to love this one… With everything from two-toned pink plastic baskets to that super cute floral toilet paper bin, this closet has such an awesome overall theme. If you have small things to store, like essential oils, something like a small clear plastic bin would be the perfect storage spot for them! So if you don’t want to repaint and build new shelves, then adding matching storage pins is the way to go!

I’m not going to lie… my bathroom closet needs some work! I love the simplicity of the matching baskets in the actual closet but the best part is definitely the hanging wire baskets on the inside of the door! They’re such a great way to organize all the smaller things like your soaps, shampoo, and other bottles. If you have a smaller linen closet in your bathroom this is a great way to maximize the storage space available while keeping things organized at the same time!

Looking for an Ikea hack to declutter your linen closet with?? She used the algot free-standing shelving system to completely redo her closet with ease! I love how quick and simple this can be done once you have that shelving unit. After she installed it in the closet, filling in the rest of the room with hanging clothes and laundry basket must have been a breeze. Not to mention how simple it is to access everything with the pull out drawers. Save time and turn that clutter into a super easy organization project!

Remember the floral linen closet from above… well this one takes it one step further! I love how she completely transformed her closet by using removable floral wallpaper and some simple storage bins. The bins she chose look perfect against the background and provide some contrast against the pink while pulling the blue out too!
Plus, if you’re running out of room in your closet, you can always add a hanging storage rack on the back of the door just like she did. Inside the storage rack shes using some really cool clear containers so she can easily see exactly what’s inside. Quickly give your linen closet a facelift with this awesome idea!

While some of these examples on the list have been pretty simple, this next one is definitely more in-depth… If you’re up for a DIY weekend project to organize that linen closet, I’m sure this tutorial will give you a great place to start! I know I’ve said this before, but the before and after pictures are stunning. She ripped out all the old wallpaper, shelves and a metal bar that wasn’t going to be used anymore. After removing everything to start with a fresh slate, she then built those awesome thick wooden shelves. Pair this example with one from above for some storage bin ideas and your linen closet will be looking perfect in no time!

In theory, this closet makeover is pretty simple with the new wallpaper and repainting the shelves, but I’m sure you know how DIY projects can go.

How about this all-white linen closet?? I love how fresh and clean it looks… With the white baskets and all the white towels, it just looks so good! Plus, she added lettering on the baskets for the “guest”, “king”, and “queen” which is definitely an idea I’m going to take inspiration from. She did mention that they fell off but I’m sure she’ll figure out a better solution soon. This linen closet is fit for a QUEEN!

I don’t know about you but… a trip to Home Goods and a relatively quick organization project is always a yes from me! All the baskets you see here were found at Home Goods and after a “purge” of all the old / unnecessary items, this linen closet looks fresh and super organized. I love the wooden crate look with the glass jars and all the white!

Looking for some contrast in your life!? Painting the back wall gray gives this linen closet a nice pop against the white shelves! Plus, If you have gray and white towels / accessories, I’m sure it would go perfectly. She has the white towels on a different shelf than the colored towels which is something I hadn’t thought of before… but I’m definitely going to try. It’s crazy what a coat of paint can do!

Okay, if you want the ultimate ease of access and organization for your closet, then this is going to be right up your alley. She just used plastic dividers on the shelves to create separate spaces for all the towels and sheets… such a good idea! Plus, she used some large gray bins at the bottom to store the toilet paper in a nice way so its not just a ripped open bag. I don’t think it gets any easier than this!

How cute is this example!? The contrast between the woven baskets and the white storage containers gives this closet and super fresh look!
