If clothes are often easy to store and manage, because they are handled every day, it is not the same for linens. Between table cloths, bed sheets, tea towels and mattress covers, simply postpone storage two or three times to find yourself quickly invaded. To prevent this from happening at home, follow these tips to keep your linens tidy.
Choosing the right storage equipment
The basic element for the successful storage of your linens is the furniture. While it is true that the choice depends in part on the space available, it also depends on the rooms in the house. However, there is a piece of furniture that is all-purpose and can find its place anywhere in the house: the wardrobe. Generally closed, using flaps or sliding doors, it allows having a quick overview of all the linen. For easy access to the components of the laundry you use the most, store them at eye level. You can install a wardrobe in your room, in the living room furniture, or in the kitchen.
The dresser is also a storage option. More appropriate for the room, it has the advantage of taking up less space and providing access at your fingertips. For the sake of space management, you may prefer the trunk at the foot of the bed, or the storage with wheels or the cover under the bed. To prevent this from happening at home, follow these tips to keep your linens tidy.
Classify linen for efficient storage
To properly store linen, you must also take into account the criteria that characterize each type of linen. If you use a cabinet, for example, reserve two compartments of the same level for table cloths, two for bed sheets, and so on. Then, within each category, you can also make sure to arrange according to the size, but also and especially according to the color.
Regarding the chest of drawers, the trunk at the foot of the bed or storage under the bed, since these storage offers less freedom, the labeling solution will probably be the most appropriate. Obtain transparent packaging, each of which will contain only one type of laundry. Transparency already allows you to have a view of the content, but labels (with information such as the type of laundry, the date of last use, etc.) will still provide a plus. They will help for identification, and will also allow you to not ignore the laundry stowed at the bottom.
