Organising and storing bedding can take up a lot of space. From storing bedding sets in linen cupboards and placing them in chic baskets to neatly folding them into protective bags, the space-saving solutions are endless when storing duvet covers, pillowcases and more.
Use these top five ways to store your luxury bed linen to help you keep your sheets, blankets, and pillowcases tidy and crease free.
1. Choose Optimal Storage Conditions
The ideal way to store any bedding set is to neatly fold your linen and place it on a shelf in the cupboard. This will provide you with as much airflow as possible to allow your duvet covers, pillowcases and sheets to breathe - helping to avoid mildew and mould from taking hold. As a general rule of thumb, you should avoid storing your bedding in attics, sheds and garages if possible, as you want to avoid moisture by keeping your sheets in a fresh, dry environment instead.
2. Use Protective Storage Bags
If you are short on space, your best option is to keep your duvet covers under your bed in protective storage bags. Cotton bags are the best choice as they protect against dust, but also allow any moisture to escape which will keep your bed linen fresh. Another great option is vacuum storage bags, as these will let you keep your bedding all in one place without taking up too much precious room.
3. Under Bed Storage
Ottoman beds offer a dreamy space-saving solution, as you can simply lift from the foot of the bed to reveal a handy storage spot for extra bedding, towels or throws and cushions. Beds with underbed storage allow you to keep your room clutter free whilst making sure all bedding is kept in one handy, accessible place.
4. Display Your Linen
No cupboard? No problem! Display your bed linen instead. If you don't have room for a linen closet or underbed storage, there are many other ways to store and organise your sheets. Shelves, baskets, coat hangers and other storage furniture will certainly do the trick.
5. Combine Your Bedding Sets
Brand new luxury bedding sets are usually all folded neatly into one pack. Take inspiration from this by folding your sheets and tucking them inside the matching pillowcases to save space when it comes to storing your duvet covers, pillowcases and more.
Bath towels come in sets too, so keep your towel collections in one place for convenient storage. Towels and washcloths can be placed in baskets or folded and stored together, so they are easy to grab and go.

How do I keep my bedding feeling fresh?
Placing your bedding sets outside to air is one of the best ways to keep your bed linen feeling and smelling fresh. Air drying your bedding will also let you enjoy the crisp fresh feel of lovely bed sheets. It doesn’t have to be bright blue skies to try this out - the windier the day, the quicker your bedding will dry. However if it is drizzling outside, place your bedding in the tumble dryer before making your bed as this will help to freshen them up after being folded in your linen storage spot for long periods of time.
