An introduction to colour co-ordinating your Video Game collection

If you're a fan of video games, you know that collecting them can quickly become an addiction. Whether you prefer physical copies or digital downloads, there's something special about having a collection of games to call your own. When you consider displaying them you likely have a few considerations in mind. Alphabetically or by genre? Sure, these are functional solutions, but I am here to introduce you to a more visually striking alternative. The power of Colour co-ordination.

What better way to display that collection than with a colour-coordinated arrangement of video game cases? Not only does it look great, but it also makes finding the game you're looking for a breeze. In this blog post, we'll share some tips on how to master the art of colour coordinating video game cases.

Start with a plan

Before you start colour coordinating your video game cases, it's important to have a plan. Largely your options will be dictated by the size and diversity of your games. Take an inventory of your collection and decide on the colour scheme you want to use. Some popular options include rainbow, monochromatic, and gradient/analogous. But you can also go for more striking themes such as triad, complementary (also available in split and double split variants if you really want to flex your art-degree), compound and shades. You can use this nifty tool to help you understand these terms. Let your creativity run wild!

Organize by console

One way to make colour coordinating your video game cases easier is to organize them by console. This way, you can focus on one system at a time and ensure that the colours you choose are consistent across your collection. Start with your favourite console or the one with the most games in your collection.

Choose your colours

When choosing colours for your video game cases, consider the cover art of each game. Look for dominant colours or themes that you can use to create a cohesive look. Alternatively focus entirely on the spines if your collection is large, as you likely won’t have room to display the cover of all of them. Although this can be a great way to highlight individual games, whether they be your favourite or most visually striking. Don't be afraid to mix and match shades and hues to create depth and interest. Experiment to really highlight your passion in video games and eye for colour. This collection can be as expressive as you want it to be.

Arrange your collection

Once you've chosen your colours, it's time to arrange your collection. Start with the largest games and work your way down to the smallest. Be sure to leave space between each game to give your collection room to breathe. If you have limited space, consider using brackets, shelving solutions or displaying some games vertically.


Maintaining a colour-coordinated collection requires a little effort but is well worth it. Be sure to replace games in their proper place after playing them and check for any missing or damaged cases regularly. You can also use a dust cloth or a can of compressed air to keep your collection looking fresh.


Colour coordinating your video game cases is a fun and rewarding way to display your collection. With a little planning and effort, you can create a cohesive and visually stunning arrangement that will impress your friends and make finding your favourite games a breeze.
