Comforter & Pillow Storage Ideas?

By
Home Stager with Redesign Etc. Home Staging Incorporated in TX

I seem to have this problem time and time again where I can't get comforters, shams, and bed skirts back in their original bag, especially the ones that come with sheets.  I eventually get them stuffed back in, but they never look the same.  The problem, other than not fitting back in its original bag is storing them.  They take up a huge amount of room, and are not that easy to store.  I currently have them on racks.  Does anyone have any creative ideas on how to store them, and take up less space.

The same can be said for throw pillows and pillows, they are also difficult to store.  I have them on racks like a store, and maybe that's all that can be done, but I'd like to see if anyone has any ideas for storage for them as well.

I've also thought about designating totes for whole bedding ensembles, but that takes up a lot of room too.

Cindy - What a great question... MUST be a big problem for us all because you have had over 600 views !! Way to go.. Love the idea of just using the clear storage bins and putting the whole set w/throw pillows in there.. Keep the thoughts coming..

We use large garmant bags to house all our pillows.  We can hang them from the ceiling in our warehouse and they are clear so we can put pillows in according to color (or style or type - casual vs dressy).  We store by color.  They are easy to see when they are stacked up high, and easy to reach as well.  For bedding, well, there is no easy way to store it outside of stuffing it in bags.  We use clear large bags - again to see the pattern and color.  We try to make sure that are the "parts" are together - the shams, the bedding and dust ruffle.   Bedding is pretty heavy so hanging it won't work, and it has to be bagged or else it gets dusty in storage.

You are right that you will NEVER get the bedding to fit back in the same little plastic container it came from - same with folding air beds and the metal frames.  I appreciate it the first time I see it all neat and tidy because I know it will never look that way again!

I use the Space Bags.  They are great for storing large items like pillows and comforters.  I add a dryer sheet into the bag when I store them.  It keeps everything smelling fresh.

In a extra large space bag you can put the entire bedding set including both pillows. They sell them at Costco.

I tend to buy some real bag storage made for comforters or cloth. It makes it a good protection to beg bugs as well. Southwest Mobile Storage
