Usually this is the messiest place of a house. Make sure that everything is organized. If you have a small space, you should add storage space to the walls.

It is common for people to store all kinds of objects in the linen closet. This is why you have to get rid of everything that doesn’t have anything to do with the bed or the bathroom.

In order to make some space, you should move all the clothes from the previous season to another place. Then arrange the clothes to have easy access to those worn the most often.
