We have hardly any closet space, much less a whole linen closet. Where do you put your sheets and towels if you don't have a spare closet? We've always used a case of drawers, but there are a bunch of other "outside the closet" options. Here are a few...
A storage bench can hide out almost anywhere: in an entryway, at the foot of a bed, under a windowsill. This is the Cube Cutout Storage Bench from West Elm ($239 - $349).
It's not hard to find a good-looking sideboard, and credenzas are so multi-functional that they work almost anywhere. Above: Bjursta Sideboard from IKEA ($249) and Blu Dot Modulicious No. 1 ($529 - $629). Below: Concord Credenza from Room & Board ($1,999), Reve Dresser at Design Within Reach ($2,500).
