Comforters can be a particularly tricky item to store. However, there are plenty of ways to store your comforter without consuming your limited storage space.

If you prefer to keep your comforter in a closet with spare sheets and pillows, consider using labeled bins and baskets to keep everything organized. If you'd rather store your bedding elsewhere and leave room in the linen closet for medicine and extra toilet paper, you could purchase a trendy bench or a vintage chest to keep in your bedroom.

Whatever your unique preference may be, there are lots of storage options available. Here are 10 helpful comforter storage ideas to keep you organized.
