Tired of losing your sheets in your linen cupboard? In this Howards makeover, we stepped in with an innovative solution for a fixed shelf cupboard using elfa® Easy Gliders® to transform shelves into drawers.

Beautifully folded, fresh linen stored in neat stacks might be the ideal for a linen cupboard, but without good organisation, a simple search for a matching pillowcase can turn the whole cupboard into a chaotic mess.

Getting these items organised can maximise space, save you lots of time and ultimately reduce everyone’s stress.  Once a system is in place, it’s easier for everyone in the household.

The cupboard shown here was screaming out for a makeover. Even though it was a nice large cupboard, it kept on slipping out of control. Using Howards Stop-Sort-Solve method, we quickly worked our way to a solution.

First step, STOP.

Without touching a thing, we stepped back and asked the question: “what is the real problem”? The answer was of course that there was too much being crammed into the cupboard and it was time to cull the old sheets and towels and give the newer ones the space they deserved. Keeping groups of like items together was also a problem.

Next step, SORT.

We pulled everything out, grouped like items together and also pulled out items no longer used ready to donate. Did you know that if you have old sheets and towels that are too far gone to donate to charity, your local mechanic would likely welcome them?

As part of the sort process think about which items you need most frequent access to and make sure that they get allocated the “easiest to access space” in the next stage!

Finally, SOLVE.

This is the fun part where Howards came to the rescue with clever elfa® Easy Gliders® combined with elfa® wire baskets, transforming the deep-set shelves into blissful drawers.

We love this solution because

  • it allows you to group your sheets sets and towels together

  • utilises the entire shelf depth

  • baskets come in a range of different heights and depths

  • runners come in 2 different widths

  • labels can be added to the baskets

To top it off, a DampRid tub was also included to keep moisture away from the stored items and Cli-Mate sachets to keep the air smelling sweet. You’ll be surprised how much moisture these magic tubs collect and Howards has an extensive range of options.

The beauty of this makeover is its simplicity. The effort and time taken to do the makeover will pay dividends long into the future and best of all – the family is loving it! Opening the linen cupboard is no longer a source of stress. In fact, they now show it off to anyone who wants to have a look!
