- Style – Put everything back and make it pretty!
Baskets ‘o Linen
Organizing your linen closet is as simple as buying a collection of baskets. Plastic, wicker, metal? Whatever floats your boat!
Toss or donate sheets & towels you no longer use and arrange your baskets by room and type. Many Taylor Morrison floor plans, like the Courbet, feature convenient linen closets in the first floor.
