How To Color Code Your Home

Organization can make it so much better and faster to find things when you need them. It’s also a great way to keep your space looking neat and clean. But what should you consider when you’re deciding how to organize your items? Here are a few things to think about.

1. Make Organizing Easier

Look for ways to make your organizing easier. Even if you really want to move something out of a room, if that’s where you use it consider keeping it there. Just look for ways to make it organized, so it’s convenient and doesn’t take up a lot of space. There are all types of storage solutions you can look into to help. Using colors for certain items is an efficient place to start.

2. Identify Things Quickly and Easily

When you color code your home, it also helps you identify items faster and more easily. You’ll know that only certain items have certain colors, so you’ll be looking for that color when setting out to find your things. That’s efficient and convenient, and when you do things the color coded way you’ll cut down on the search time you have for a lot of items.

3. Grounding Provides a Sense of Purpose

Feeling grounded and purposeful helps just about everyone get more done. Who doesn’t want to work with a sense of purpose, and feel connected to their life, and what’s around them? By choosing to color code your home for better organizing, you’ll be organizing with purpose and direction. That can make it more enjoyable, and reduce the stress that trying to organize so many things can sometimes cause. When the organizing is done, you’ll also likely feel more grounded in your space, too.

4. Storage Can Become Decor

If you don’t have a spare room or garage where you can store things, the next option is for your storage to become decor. For example, consider an ottoman with storage inside it, for the extra blankets you like to have near the couch, or the board games or toys you and your family play with. Take a look at ways to add a bench or seating area by the door, where you can store shoes, outerwear, or outdoor items. There’s a wide variety of storage items that are also decorative, so you can find what fits your space.

5. Reduce Family Disagreements

If you color code storage for certain items, and assign colors or storage locations to specific family members, it can reduce disagreements and frustration. Not only will people know where to find their things, but they’ll have their own space to store their items, too. That’s especially important if you have a big family or small children, since the clutter and lack of space can sometimes lead to arguments. That’s much more easily avoided when you color code your storage and keep your space organized and neat.

Don’t settle for random storage solutions when you have great options to color-code your home. You’ll be more organized, feel better about your space, and your home will look great, too.

    I would agree, I don’t understand the point. It’s very very vague I was hoping for more detailed ideas as to HOW to do this, or WHEN and WHERE to do this… I don’t have kids can adults use it?

    This article seemed to offer no actual practical advice, just a vague idea. The baskets are practical if you have the shelving and a basket budget. The coloured tags didn’t really seem practical for any children, with the various tones of pink etc. Maybe I missed the whole point… so like the previous comment… can you explain it further? Thanks.
