n Sheets, pillowcases, and towels teetered on the shelves in mismatched towers. n Items needed only occasionally (sunscreen and tablecloths) took up prime real estate, while often- used items languished on the floor or high shelves. n Loose bottles and jars were hard to identify and easy to knock over.
Opposite: Before, this linen closet at the end of a hall was a hodgepodge of loose bottles, mismatched sheet sets, and an overflow of travel accessories (beach towels, makeup bags, and airplane pillows). Above: Sheets and towels are now sorted into stacks, and bins and baskets corral medicines, shampoo bottles, toilet paper, and more. A flat-fold step stool makes it easy to reach everything.
