towels and linens if you have no airing cupboard?

In fact, I have no cupboard at all for this.

Foes anyone have ingenious storage solutions?

I'm guessing you'd like a neater solution than the sofa bed in the study? blush

Do you have anywhere, on the landing or spare room for example, for a tall, slim chest of drawers?

I have an ottoman bed so store them all in there and lots of other crap
I have zero cupboard spec in my teeny flat.

We have nice box under each bed to store that bed's linen. Towels are all rolled up and put in basket in the bathrooms. I do actually have an airing cupboard but I prefer to not use it.

Cupboard with three deep shelves and three drawers underneath in spare room for bed linen, spare curtains, tablecloths. Towels are on an open shelf unit in bathroom.,Would love a proper hot cupboard but went for separate shower cubicle instead. How about those boxes on wheels that fit under the bed? Old fashioned blanket box which can double as extra seating?

Top shelf of the wardrobe or underbed drawer. Not having many helps - for towels and adult bedding we only have 2 sets so there is little to store.

Rolling might help a bit too, if you have a lot of them together on a shelf www.themathmom.com/TryItAtHome.html

We use them! Each bed has one set of linen. Towels in bathroom. There is nowhere else.......

Bath and hand towels on a shelf in our bathroom, bedding on a shelf at the top of our wardrobe which only dp can reach= it's his job! and dds cot bedding under her cot, which saves faffing if it needs changing in the night!

We have a couple of drawers in our huge Ikea wardrobe for that sort of thing.

I have a couple of clothes boxes from IKEA - one in the bathroom for towels, one in the spare bedroom for bed linen.

Good grief how many sheets and towels do you all HAVE???

HiccupHaddockHorrendous Thu 24-Apr-14 17:02:07

Bed linen goes in a drawer, in my wardrobe. There are a few towels kept on a small unit in the bathroom and some spare guest towels in the bed linen drawer in my wardrobe.

In a big packing type box at the bottom of DH's wardrobe - the majority of his clothes are shirts and suits, so it is dead space otherwise.
