Is this the most perfect linen closet EVER?

For many Australians, the household linen closet is filled with old towels, mismatched bed sets and cluttered shelves.

But this is far from the case for Australian DIY blogger, Iryna Federico, whose perfectly organised linen closet is the envy of weary homeowners across the nation. 

Not only that, but the pristine white baskets she uses to keep things in order cost a mere $15.

‘I hate nothing more than organising a space, for it to revert back to chaos shortly after because my methods are impractical,’ the daytime marketing coordinator wrote on her blog, From Great Beginnings. 

‘A linen closet is often a good example of that in most households.

Ms Federico said one of her top tips is picking a favourite towel she likes and sticking with it, rather than using a variety of different sizes and textures.

‘Having the same sized main towel makes it so much easier to fold the same way each time,’ she explained. 

The stylish 26-year-old also suggests throwing out or re-purposing all ‘old and crusty towels’ and teaching all members of the household to fold towels the exact same way.

‘Figure out the best and easiest way to fold them so they fit the dedicated space nicely,’ she said.

Ms Frederico also stressed the importance of rolling hand towels and face washers as it looks the best and eliminates the need for folding and utilising baskets for organisation.

‘All the baskets are from Cheap as Chips (a variety store) and were about $15 each,’ she told FEMAIL. 

The organised Adelaide-based creative is a fan of baskets because ‘not only are they completely adorable and balance out a space, they’re also great for hiding clutter’.

‘If you decide you don’t want to attempt to fold your fitted sheet, you can scrunch it up and put it away without cluttering up a shelf,’ she said.

She also revealed how she keeps the linen cupboard smelling fresh at all times.

‘Put a diffuser in there – I found a tiny “fresh linen” diffuser at Target and it smelled heavenly,’ she said. 

‘The scent gets absorbed into the fabric and makes everything smell freshly washed even if it was cleaned months ago.’

Ms Frederico concluded by suggesting people always keep a consistent theme by using complementary and similar colours – the blogger opting for a neutral palette as she loves white. 

‘As long as it’s consistent, it will look great,’ she said.
