How to organize your Closet with Colors

1/11/2017

Organizing your closet has never been easy when using a color palette; this is an easy-to-go task when cleaning of your closet. As for me;Whether its folded or hanged I follow a certain arrangement; How do Organize your Closet with Colors?

Categorize your Wardrobe
Segregate it into two parts; first, for dress up/daily wardrobe and home clothes and second, Will you have it folded or hang?


Identify your wardrobe by item
Separate your dress,jackets,blouses,button downs, gym clothes and the like, this is one way to go to finding a specific piece of wardrobe, less time to check all areas of the closet in finding that special piece to complete your look.


Assess the Color of your clothes.
  • Base on Color Wheel
This is the most easiest and convenient for most as it goes to the flow of choosing from Neutral Colors (Black, Grey, Brown and White) followed by Cool Colors (Violet, Blue and Green) Last Warm Colors (Red, Orange and Yellow). 

  • Base on Quantity of Colored Clothes
As for my Daily Clothes; I Use Neutral Colors (Black, Grey, Brown and White) followed by the shades of Blue and Red Last as they the most number of clothes I owned next are the other colors that I least owned. It doesn't matter if its plain, textured, printed to me as long they fall into the same color.
  • Base on Plains and Prints
Admit it that you got a variety of Clothes and most of it is categorized into Plain or Prints. Some people simply wanted to segregate this two wardrobe variation. Simple way to separate this is placing a hanged or decorative binder to separate your clothes and if you are blessed with a bigger closet; Have it placed on another location. Still. The color application (Bese on Quantity of Colored Clothes or Base on Color Wheel) applies to what suits you.

How to choose your wardrobe closet

1/04/2017









[Updated] July 22, 2019 - More than two years ago, I wrote an article about the three types of a closet that any person can have. There are more than three types of closet available depending on how it will be designed or how the designer will be able to utilize the space for the clients' needs, as I have written before and has experienced over these past 3 years, there are only three of which stands out the most base on the encounters I had with my client.

1. Ready-made Wardrobe Closet

The ready-made closets are the closets that we found on retail stores or even online. They have a certain style per retail store base on the collection or mass-produced items per season. More of these are even imported outside the country. In my opinion,  not all ready-made closets are of good quality, the design may be a good choice but somehow before purchasing take a deeper look on the material itself and check if the particular item of your choosing will last longer than you have required. Quality is the most important factor that one person should consider when buying retail that will last longer. I have purchased a lot of retail items not just for wardrobe closets yet indeed they last longer than I thought it would be. The disadvantage of this is you cant utilize the other spaces especially if you have a high ceiling because there is is no assurance if you can get the same design that will fit into the space left.

2. Reach-In Wardrobe Closet. 

This type of Wardrobe Closet is a custom-built wardrobe closet that will fit you your requirements especially for people who wanted a seamless look for their wardrobe closet area and, utilizing the given space is the most important part for them. In most cases these are even connected to a different part of the wall, such as a wardrobe is connected to a media or dining space. This helps in creating a cohesive look especially for houses or even condominium apartments that have a micro-space to deal with. I like having this kind of concept especially for spaces that needed to be maximized and, it helps a lot for both the client and designer in achieving the look both wanted and the space they desired.

3. Walk-In Wardrobe Closet

Who in the world doesn't want a wardrobe closet? A wardrobe closet is a dream closet for any people, I have asked countless people on this and they wanted to have this type of wardrobe closet. Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to have this type of closet. If you are living in a condominium apartment which is around 24sqm studio type won't be advisable but if you have a combined unit, there is no reason why a walk-in wardrobe closet can't be achieved. In my opinion, A wardrobe closet has to be set with your architect to give you a provision of the space you wanted especially for homeowners who are still in the planning stage and if you plan to renovate then have a set of requirements with your designer, contractor, and architect that you wanted it and depending how much space you required and can be achieved. You can have a room just for your clothes or even connected to your toilet and bath, depending on what your heart desires. 


Always coordinate your plans with your designer, and always make an assessment of your own in identifying your needs, it's you who's going to live there longer and the design will work for you when you work together with your designer.
