5 Ways to Organise Your Bookcase

If you’ve found yourself squeezing books into any available space on your bookshelf, perhaps now is a good time to organise them. Not only does having a good organisation system help you to find books more easily, but it also makes your bookshelf look even more beautiful. So, give your bookcase a makeover today by stepping up your organisation game and getting your books into order.

1. Arrange by colour
One of the biggest trends at the moment is to organise books by the colour of their spine. Either by grouping similar books together into a rainbow effect or by creating a pattern with the different colours, this is a super fun and creative way of beautifying your bookcase and making your books easier to find.

2. Arrange by height
Another way of keeping a uniform effect is to arrange books according to their height. Bookshelves can often look like a mish-mash of different books, but when grouped according to their height the shelf takes on a whole new clean and uncluttered appearance.

3. Arrange by genre
This is a great way to separate out books if you happen to have lots of different subject matters. Group books into genres such as science fiction, horror, fantasy, non-fiction, romance and literature before placing them back onto your bookcase. 

4. Arrange by size
Books come in all shapes and sizes, and the most practical way to arrange them is to put the biggest, heaviest books on the bottom shelves. Working up to medium sized books and then light paperbacks right at the top.

5. Arrange alphabetically
If you want to go full librarian on your bookcase, the only way to arrange it is alphabetically. Think about whether you want to arrange by author or title first and take it from there. This method might take some time, but it will be worth it when you can find exactly what you are looking for right away!
