Turning underused space in your home into a fabulous craft room is likely high on your wish list. Some crafts, such as sewing or quilting, require lots of work space, while others, such as jewelry making, need specialized equipment and excellent lighting. No matter what craft room ideas you have, one of the keys to a craft room is finding excellent storage solutions. Try these tips to build yourself a haven that lets you relax and create objects of beauty.
Zoning Into Your Work Space
It's essential to make your work space as efficient as possible. To do this, start by sectioning your craft room into zones dedicated to planning, storage and work. In your planning area, set up a desk if you want one — especially if you plan to let your craft room double as your home office. Give yourself room to sketch, setting up a drafting table or an easel. If you love to sew, then this is where you can put your dressmaker's dummy. A chaise lounge or a comfy sofa is a great inspiration piece — if you have the room!
Focusing on Storage Solutions
Your storage area should be a masterpiece of organization. When you don't keep your craft supplies well-organized, it's far too easy to waste money by purchasing more of things you already have. Clutter can also affect your ability to create.
Breaking Down the Walls
During a craft project, you want everything you need close at hand. If you use your wall space intelligently, then that's exactly what you get. Set up a gift wrap station that includes rolls of wrapping paper ready to spool right off the wall and a large work space underneath. Hang peg boards on the wall of your craft room to keep scissors, pliers and other tools ready to grab, and add cups that can hold pens and stickers. Wall-mounted magazine racks, which are available in wood, plastic or metal, are great places to store patterns, photos and fabric samples.
Designing your craft room may be as much fun as creating any of the works of art you use the room for. As you gather craft room ideas, let your imagination run free, then harness it to build a practical and welcoming solution. Keep craft storage solutions in the forefront of your planning as you make over your craft room, and you're likely to end up with a room that makes you feel happy every time you step into it.
