Organizing your books by color is a hot design trend and a stunning addition to any interior space. While this may be the preferred aesthetic implemented by interior designers when they organize and style bookcases, there are numerous book-lovers that would warn against making such a decision.
Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of color-coding your books:
- It is beautiful!
- Guest entering your home will be overwhelmed by this visually stunning transformation and marvel at your design talent.
- Merging book collections with a significant other is painless. The color-coding theory trumps any other organizing theory brought into the relationship.
- It is beautiful! – Yes – that bears repeating.
- You will never find your books again, since books are usually organized alphabetically or by genre.
- Book collections rarely use the same color book jacket, so you will be breaking up those collections. Hush, don’t tell J.K. Rowling.
- Your bookcase will need constant maintenance; every time you bring home a new book, you will need to reorganize.
- Again, you will never find your books again; but in today’s digital age, who reads books anymore?
