My linen closet has been an eyesore for a while, so I finally decided to do something about it. I consider myself a pretty organized person but my linen closet is one I refused to tackle alone. I partnered with my friends over at Immaculate Touch, here is Houston, to assist me with getting my linen closet and vanity drawers organized. The process was simple and it has been very easy to maintain. Ira, of Immaculate Touch, was great and very patient throughout the entire process. Before getting organized, we pulled everything out of the closet and drawers to determine what I wanted to keep and what I could get rid of. We got rid of quite a bit of things. Now that I have officially uncluttered , I don’t plan on adding unnecessary item to my linen closet again. I am excited to reveal to you guys the final product.
The first thing we did was have a consultation regarding how I wanted my linen closet to look. I wanted a spa feel but I also needed it to be easy to maintain. My goal was to make sure my guest have the things they need readily accessible. Because I like to be involved in every aspect when it comes to my home, we decided that I would do the shopping for the things needed for the closet and drawers. I knew from the start I wanted to replace my towels. I wanted them to be more uniformed so I went out and purchased new ones. I decided on white due to the fact they would give the spa look I was going for. Ina first mapped out her plan and immediately started on the towels. She folded the larger towels into beautifully stacked rolls. The face towel and bath towels were also folded nicely and placed into the baskets.
Next on my list were storage baskets and containers. I knew I wanted a variety of shapes and sizes. I also didn’t want the same storage baskets for everything so I purchased a mixer of wicker and wire baskets. The wire baskets were purchased at Marshall’s. The wicker baskets are from Target. If I am being honest, Ross had a lot of options for a fraction of the price but I wanted a certain look so I went with the ones pictured. The laundry basket was a perfect match and the main reason I went with the baskets for Target.
What’s a linen closet without linens? Most of my sheets are neutral colors so those were folded and placed in one of the wired baskets. In regard to organizing the linen closet, she made a few separate categories. One basket consists of hair care products such as shampoo, conditioner, styling gels and shower The container is where the shaving products are stored. The wire basket is where creams, soaps and lotions are stored.
At the very top of the linen closet you will find cleaning supplied and extra tissue. I also have a basket for miscellaneous items that I really didn’t have a space for. The flower arrangement was a nice added touch and it really brought my spa vision to life. Immaculate Touch really did a great job with my linen closet and I am beyond excited with how it came out.
Because I want my guest to feel at home, I decided to go a step further and get my vanity drawers organized as well. I went with acrylic storage containers because the are easy to fit in drawers and I wanted people to be able to see whats inside when they open them. I purchased the acrylic containers at Ross, Target and Marshall’s. If you don’t have the time or patients to look around for storage containers like I did, I recommend The Container Store. It is a one stop shop for all your container needs. In the event someone decides they want to stay at my home unplanned, I have the toiletries they might need on deck. The top drawer is dedicated to oral hygiene which includes mouthwash, floss and toothpaste. I added a few extra shaver as well guest who need to shave their face. The middle drawer is dedicated to hair grooming. The combs and brushes have their own storage tray, next to it are rubber bands, hair ties and bobby pins. The bottom drawn is where the feminine hygiene items are stored such as pads, tampons and pantyliner. I also store extra tissue paper there as well.
