How to Repurpose a Pantry into a Linen Closet


A well-organized linen closet is essential for any modern home. Not only does it help to keep our towels, sheets, and other basic necessities neat and orderly, but it also makes getting ready in the morning easier and more efficient. When everything is easily accessible and neatly labeled, we can find exactly what we need without wasting time or borrowing things from our housemates.



If you are looking for a way to organize your linen closet on a budget, you may want to consider repurposing your pantry. This is a great option if you have extra space in your home and can’t afford to buy a stand alone linen closet. In this blog post, we will discuss how to do this quickly and easily!

What is a Linen Closet


A linen closet is a storage space for items like bedsheets, blankets, and towels. Typically located in the bedroom or bathroom, a linen closet is typically organized into different sections to help you easily find what you need. These sections typically include shelves for storing folded sheets and blankets, as well as drawers, hooks, or other organizational tools for keeping smaller items such as hand towels and washcloths stored safely. 



To keep your linen closet neat and organized, it is important to maintain a regular cleaning routine that focuses on wiping down shelves and surfaces with a damp cloth and vacuuming up any lingering dust bunnies or stray crumbs. By maintaining a clean and well-organized linen closet, you can ensure that all of your linens are kept in great condition so that they last longer and provide optimal comfort and utility.

How to Repurpose a Pantry Into a Linen Closet


One of the first things you will need to do is empty out your pantry. This may seem like a daunting task, but it is necessary in order to repurpose the space into a linen closet. Once you have emptied out the pantry, give it a good cleaning. You may want to consider painting or wallpapering the space to give it a fresh look.



Now that the pantry is empty and clean, you can start to add shelving. This will allow you to store all of your linen in one place. You can find shelving units at most home improvement stores or online. Be sure to measure the space before you buy anything so that you know what will fit.  In addition, be sure to keep storage baskets in neatly organized corners of your new linen closet in order to easily store odds and ends like extra toilet paper rolls or cleaning supplies.

Once you have the shelving installed, you can start to add your linen. Be sure to fold everything neatly so that it will fit on the shelves. You may want to invest in some storage bins so that you can keep smaller items organized.

Final Thoughts


That’s it! You now have a functional linen closet that didn’t cost you a lot of money by simply repurposing your pantry cabinet. Be sure to keep it organized so that it will be easy to find what you need when you need it. Do you have any tips for organizing a linen closet? Share them in the comments below!
