When it comes to deciding a color scheme for your closet, there are a lot of factors to take into account. To help guide you in the decision-making process, here are some rules of thumb to follow from the experts here at Closet & Storage Concepts Colorado.
Deciding on a neutral color for your closet is a timeless choice for many reasons. Neutrals go with just about anything, so you won’t have to worry about keeping up with the latest trends. Also, since clothes are many different colors, having a neutral background will help your wardrobe shine – specially the brightly colored items.
For neutral colors, light and bright colors often work best. White, tan, and gray are all great choices to consider. This is important for smaller closets because lighter colors can make a small space feel larger than it is. Light colors will also reflect light better and make your clothes easier to find. If you have a lot of darker colored clothing, these items will pop more against a lighter background.
If you’re feeling adventurous, consider a vibrant color for your closet! There are no limits when it comes to color choices. Some popular colors this year are aqua, teal, saturated red, and yellow. This a great option for adding a splash of uniqueness and creativity to your closet. With rich tones, it will be important to add a light to improve the lighting of the closet.
For an elegant look, go with a dark gray, black, or a deep blue color. This is a bold choice, but dark colors can make a closet look very sophisticated. Dark colors go best in roomy closets that have good lighting. Another pro to a dark closet is the color will obscure items when the lights are off, hiding any messes that may be in there.
Colors for Shelves
If you have shelves or drawers in your closets, you can pick out an accent color to add some flare. If you went with a darker, more rich color, consider choosing an accent color that is bright, such as white. If your closet is a neutral color, you can pick out a more vibrant color for the shelves or drawers.
