Bed Sheets Storage Ideas

Storing bedding can be a headache if you have a large family or frequently have guests coming for the weekend. While a linen closet is the first place you'd think of, they're often slim and store other household items that are frequently accessed meaning it's time to find somewhere else for the bed sheets to hide.

Bed Frame Storage Hacks

If the room is on the smaller side or sleeps multiple people, a bed frame with built-in storage may be your best option. With room for bed sheets, comforters, and bed sheets, these bespoke frames take the usual storage space beneath a bed and add the protection of sliding drawers. Storage bins can be used to organize your linens for easier linen swaps on laundry day.
The easy access is ideal for a kid's room as they can use one of the drawers to store toys or even their own favorite blankies! As far as storage solutions go, built-in bed frame drawers are one of the most popular due to taking zero extra space and adding an extra splash of style to the bed. The mix of form and function makes these frames an easy win for bedding storage.

Trade the Linen Closet for a Set of Drawers

What's better than a storage solution that also helps with home organization? For a lot of people, not very much. A nice dresser or chest of drawers can be placed in any room without looking out of place. No one will know you actually have a duvet, five sets of sheets, a few washcloths and even extra hangers hidden inside the beautifully-stained wooden drawer. You can even use a couple of hacks to further disguise the storage such as putting shelf dividers on top of your sheets and then place board games, electronics, or anything else the room needs on top from there!
Dressers also make a nice guest room touch as everything they need can be stored where they're staying while visiting. Body and hand towels can be in one drawer along with travel-sized toiletries while the others hold matching sets of sheets. Bonus points for having a matching pillowcase for them. Now to just get the guests to help fold sheets before they go.

Put Bed Sheets and Pillowcases on the Bench

A multi-purpose piece of furniture that's as comfortable and stylish as it is aesthetic. A storage bench adds an extra level to any bedroom and delivers more value than you think. With plush cushions on top and ample storage inside, there's no denying that a bedroom bench is a must-have to declutter your linen storage. Liners on the inside prevent sheets from getting snagged on the wood. If you're making your own and don't want to line the inside, you can use storage bags instead to protect your favorite quilts.

Find the Perfect Armoire or Wardrobe

If you're wondering what the difference is between an armoire and a wardrobe, you're not alone. The main difference is that an armoire is more decorative and has shelves inside while a wardrobe tends to be more minimal with no shelves, just space for hanging items. Even if there aren't shelves you can use storage bags to hold your sheets and place the bags on hangers. You'll likely find options with drawers below the main compartment to store bedding that's accessed more often.

Basket Makeover for DIY Linen Storage

Throw blankets and pillows should always be easy to reach when the time to get cozy arrives. Baskets are an easy solution and an opportunity to reduce, reuse, and recycle older pieces and give them new life. Old hampers along with wicker and wire baskets are prime candidates. Adding a liner and then adorning the outside with your choice of material such as fabric or rope is quicker than you think!

Get Modular With Cube and Shelf Organizers

Make the most out of limited laundry room or closet space with wire organizers and sets of storage cubes. Since most sets are designed to play nicely with each other, swapping them out to reorganize or exchange contents takes minimal effort. Having specific organizers will ensure you're using every cubic inch you have available. Remember, the less organized a shelf is, the less optimally the space is used.

Put Bedding Storage Worries To Rest

No two linen storage solutions will look the same. Even if you have the same shelves as someone else, the contents you put inside are uniquely yours and add character only you can create. Take time to scan your rooms and see where there's an opportunity for a chest of drawers or a storage bench to seamlessly slide into. There's no shortage of options for styling your storage solution so focus on the space. Is it conveniently located? Can it store everything you need it to? These are the questions to ask when going on your bedding storage journey.

Inspiration can strike from anywhere and if anything here jumped out to you, take the plunge and dive into your next home or room makeover. Mix and match your favorite features and styles to create the ultimate linen and bedding storage system for your home. Who knows, maybe you'll even fall in love with it and become a professional organizer to share your talents with bedrooms all around the world!
