Did you know that color coding your closet will help you keep it organized?
Recently I organized my jewelry. I found that it was easier for me to categorize it by color.
I also do this when I organize my clothing in my closet.
This is not a new concept, and it might not work for everyone, but I have been doing it for years.
It makes getting dressed so much easier.
There are certain steps that need to take place in order to have an organized, color coded closet.
Categorize your clothing by types
I take this one step further by sorting by occasion…….
Once you have categorized your clothing by type, and by what occasion you will be wearing it for, you will be ready to start color coding.
Everyone will have a different system. I know I differ from the most commonly recommended way to color code.
Many professional organizers will use the following acronym?……
You will notice there is no, black, gray or white.
That is why I don’t color code in this order in my own personal closet.
I am going to share with you how I organize my closet.
First I categorize by….
Then I organize by type of clothing…..
The color order I use is……..
Black & White patterned,checks,stripes
My closet is a walk-in, but narrow, and long so I can’t really get a good angle to shoot, but I will attempt to show you what I have done inside my closet......
This is my side of the closet.
I keep my Spring/Summer sweaters in a zipped cloth bag with shelves. You can see I place them by colors.
At the end of my closet I hang my jeans, skirts, and dresses.
These are my Spring/Summer items. I put my winter things in storage boxes on the top shelves.
This shelf divides my clothes from my hubby’s.
Top shelf holds decorative boxes, and two of my purses.
The gloves are vintage French driving gloves. They are so small no one can fit into them, but I love them so much I put them on display.
The second shelf holds my long sleeve T-shirts, and casual tanks. Plus, a little black straw hat.
On the very bottom I have a basket that holds flip-flops and every day mules.
All the shoe boxes hold extra sandals, and my winter shoes that I don’t wear on a regular basis.
I have a wall shoe rack that holds the shoes that I wear on a regular basis for Spring/Summer.
I also have my bangles, and some of my costume necklaces hanging here on hooks below a mirror.
I have a small cabinet that I use to put extra jewelry in, and it also holds my daily creams on the top. Above it, you can see my other necklaces.
- I still have some tweaking to do. I am switching out all the blue hangers too white wooden hangers as seen on the top rack.
- The storage boxes on the top shelves at the end of my closet hold out of season purses, and clothes.
- I would like to get all white boxes that match for that area. Then my closet will be all blue, and white.
- Eventually I think I need a new light fixture, something that is pretty.
I am all color coded, and organized. Let’s see how long it takes for me to mess it up!?
I hope this has given you.....
