Utilizing Furniture for Storage 

Under-Bed Storage

How often you should wash tablecloths also depends on how often you use them. As a general rule, for party planning and catering services, you should wash your table linens after use. 

Sort your table linens and place them in separate containers. Make sure to fold your table linens well to maximize space and avoid wrinkles. You can also use zip-up storage bags or vacuum-sealed bags.

Storage Ottomans

Maximize storage from furniture compartments like ottomans, footstools, and other furniture with hidden storage space. This is a great way to store smaller table linens like tablecloth napkins and chair covers.

Empty drawers

Utilize empty drawers to safely store your table linens. To maximize the space, consider rolling your tablecloths, folding them, or storing them in vacuum-sealed bags.


Empty bookcases are great storage spaces that you can maximize. Take some plastic storage containers that you can put into the bookcases to add to the aesthetic. 

Hanging Solutions

Wall-Mounted Racks

If you have blank walls, consider installing racks on walls to maximize space. Take some containers in matching colors to store your table linens while maintaining your room’s aesthetic. 

Roll your table linens to make them fit your containers. Stack your storage bins over each one to maximize space.

Hanging door organizers

If you’re not into installing fixtures to your walls you can get storage that’s less permanent like hanging door organizers. This is a perfect way to maximize vertical space on your doors like guest rooms.

Repurposing Everyday Items

Suitcases and Shoe Organizers

You can opt to utilize items that are already in your house for storage. Suitcases are a great way to store linens due to their durable casing and portability. You can also use clean shoe organizers to store smaller table linens like tablecloth napkins or table runners.

Plastic bins and Plastic Bags

Maximize plastic bags to keep your table linens clean from dust and dirt. Place them in plastic bins to keep them safe as you store them in unconventional storage spaces prone to under-bed storage that are prone to dust.

Tips for Organization


Make sure to label your storage containers for easier retrieval. This is especially useful when you need to use different storage areas in your house.

Inventory Management

Keep an inventory of your linens as you organize them for storage. This way it will be easier to keep track of what table linens you keep in each storage space.

Moisture Protection

Make sure to protect your table linens from moisture to avoid the build-up of mold or mildew. You can use moisture-absorbing products or dehumidifiers to protect your linens. Make sure to take these measures, especially for storage areas that are more prone to humidity or don’t get much air circulation like guest rooms or washrooms.
