I have looked for laundry basket options for a shallow linen closet we have in our bathroom for some time now. If you have a shallow closet, you know how difficult it is to find items that fit in it. So, this is the first of two posts specifically for narrow linen closets.
The dimensions of the closet is 11 inches deep and about 5 feet wide with two folding doors that take a little of the space as well.
First, I found these laundry bags and used Command Large Plastic Hooks Value Pack, 3-Hook
holding the bags up until it was full enough.
However, when the bags were full I couldn't close the folding doors. And, to top it off, when the bag is heavy, it falls over and pulls the hook off the wall and damages it. =( This type of laundry basket worked for a while.
I had at least 3 of these damage spots on the wall.
Then, the other day, I found these divided laundry bins at HomeGoods that are the perfect depth. If you have shopped at HomeGoods before, you know that if you find it, you need to buy it right away. So I did.
I added labels to the front of the bins: darks, bleach, lights, and towels so everyone would know where to put the dirty clothes.
They even allow the doors to close. What a relief! It looks so much better. This post goes to show that you can find organizing supplies for any size space, you just need to be vigilant, and creative and keep trying to find the organizing item.
Here are some products from Amazon to help you with your narrow linen closet:
Next time, I will be discussing the other organizing items I found for the narrow linen closet. I hope you come back and check it out. Do you have a narrow closet space? Where is it? Please your tips in the comment section on how you managed the space.
