Closets Organized By Color

Inspiration Gallery

Closet organization is enough to make us cringe sometimes. While there are obviously many other places in the house we'd rather get organized — like our office or craft room, we're getting tired of just throwing clothes in the closet and thought that organizing would be a bit more fun if we arranged the clothes by color.

Whether your wardrobe is black and white or super colorful, organizing by color is a fun option. Either sort everything in order by color or go a step further and sort by type of garment and then by color. We really like how simple Mike's black and white closet (photo 1, above) is — whatever doesn't need to be hung, he just folds neatly in a dresser that he has tucked in an actual closet.

A great thing about organizing your closet by color is that it doesn't have to just be in your bedroom. Take the organizing to your coat closet or even your jewelry boxes. We currently have our earrings organized by color and it helps when we rush out the door and need to find that perfect pair.

Do you organize your closet by color?
