Hey everyone! Yesterday I reorganized my shelves twice… all 236 of the books. It was a lot of work. You are probably wondering why I reorganized it twice. I tried to do rainbow shelves and then once they were done I didn’t like how the series weren’t together and I just didn’t like the way they looked so I reorganized them back to how I normally have them. I have so many paper cuts and scratches now from books falling yikes.
But now they look wonderful and I’m super happy with the way they look! It’s different then they were before but I stil similar how I like it.
I am thankful for all that organizing though because it gave me the idea for this post! Different ways to organize your shleves! Everyone is different and some people don’t care too much how their shelves look but I personally need the to look super organized and perfect.
As you can see I’ve got a lot of books, not all of them are even in this picture, I have another mini shelf and some at the bottom that didn’t make it into the picture. Needless to say, I have to keep my books organized!
SO, here are six different ways to organize your shelves! Hope you enjoy!
This is one third of how I do my shelves but organizing books by height (all normal sized hard covers together, all tap hard covers together etc) always looks super put together and satisfying. A great way to organize!
RAINBOW SHELVES! They either work or they don’t. About a year ago when I didn’t have as big of a collection I did rainbow shelves for a bit and I loved them!! Since my collection has grown they tend to not work when I try it out. I have too many black/dark and white books. But agood way to organize smaller collections of books or perhaps if you have a smaller shelf or a tbr shelf, you could organize them in a rainbow.
This is the second third of the way I organize my shelves, all series together and authors that I have multiple books from go all together, it’s a great mix with height and my next way, genre.
All contemporaries together, all fantasy series together, it’s pretty self explanatory but a great way to arrange your shelves.
#5: Favourites closer to the top
I tend to do this not even on purpose, but putting books you enjoyed more, closer to the top and then ones you didn’t really love closer to the bottom making your favourites seen more and more accessible.
#6: To be read and read shelves
Seperating the books you’ve read and books you’ve yet to read onto two different shelves. I’ve seen this done a lot. I’ve also seen people organize their ‘read’ shelves super neatly and then do a rainbow with their ‘to be read’ shelf.
There are six different ways to organize your shelves, I organize mine by height and genre but also by author because if authors have multiple books I’ll put them together and I of course put series together.
Let me know below, how do you organize tour shelves! I hope you have a good day!
