I don’t have a very large linen closet, but I really like the look of these two storage cabinets so I went in search of ways to improve my space using these photos as my guide.
Here’s how to get this look:
I found this .5 gallon glass jar at Target for $5.99 (it comes in a variety of sizes; ranging in price) which you can use as an apothecary jar to store soaps, sponges, and more.
….Or pickup a few of the candle holders below instead…I found em’ at West Elm starting at $19. I love the simple design; they won’t go out of style, EVER! While you on the West Elm site make sure to check out the beautiful monogrammed apothecary jars starting at $14.
I adore this trinket box from anthropologie which costs just $18. Anthropologie is a great place to find very ornate and unique items, like this one, but sometimes that can mean higher prices.
Instead of the silver box above, why not use one of these beautiful bowls (also from anthropologie) as a catch-all in the bathroom- just $8. I have the red one and I absolutely love it! You can use it for anything, really. West Elm also has a great selection of decorative bowls.
You can pretty much find wicker/rattan storage baskets anywhere- it just kind of depends on what you plan to use it for and how much space you have. I suggest searching on Google Shopping page to compare pricing. You’ll probably want one with handles if using it in your linen closet. I found this one at West Elm starting at just $19. Also try World Market…they have a wide selection in a variety of sizes and colors for under $10!
Stacking shelves can be found at any home store- Walmart, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond etc. but I always shop at The Container Store for these storage essentials. This white mesh stacking shelf is $7.99 for the medium size.
Make your own decorative storage box, like the one below, by following these instructions by Craftzine. Or find something similar at your local Home Goods store- I’ve seen a ton of fabric boxes with small section dividers that are perfect for jewelry and what not.
..or check out the bins at The Macbeth Collection for $48- it seems a bit pricey but you can select from a number of adorably chic designs to create a custom look for your space. Plus, they are strong and durable so it’s worth the investment, in my opinion.
Once you have all of these storage solutions, you’ll just need to organize your linens and other bath products to put it all together. Utilize things a lazy susan if you have a lot of beauty products, like lotions, shampoos, etc. and add other smaller bins where necessary. Try the $1 section at your local target- they usually have some pretty cheap bins that work great in the linen closet.
