Hi ES,
I hope to be doing the same in a few months, after the refit is complete. You will be amazed at all the holes you can find to store (and forget) stuff. One of the better devices I have found is the "vacuum bag" storage systems, available just about everywhere. They can hold a large amount of soft goods, and suck down to minute packages for storing. I used mine for clothing, linens, towels, etc. Placing a dryer sheet in the bag before closing keeps everything fresh, and moisture is kept away. It's a wonderful thing to pull a bag out after a nasty journey when everything else on the boat is damp...
I would try and find the thicker plastic version, they hold up better to the boat environment. A quick suck with the vacuum and your comforter looks like a vinyl album.
Enjoy the freedom,
Buen Vento, fair winds
