First things first–determine how many towels you need (a family of 4 needs no more than 8-12 towels). And since you’re extra tight on space, you’ll want beach towels to pull double duty and have some act as regular towels. There are plenty of ways to fold a towel but here’s my advice: towels are best folded lengthwise into thirds and then folded in half, twice. That way the rounded edge faces out without being bulkier than the middle. To keep them uniform and from toppling over, you can position shelf dividers in between stacks. And if the shelf is really deep, invest in a pull out drawer to utilize the entire area while keeping things accessible.
