Craft Room Ideas
Having a craft room is essential for working on projects and also unwinding after a long day. That’s why having a space that is easy to navigate will help boost your creativity without stress and clutter.
Start with what you like to do, whether that’s painting, sewing, DIY, etc. and start to think about what materials you’ll need. Once you’ve established your crafting needs, you’ll be able to start revamping your space.
Craft Room Organization
Inspiration and organization are essential to keep in mind. You want your space to not only have everything you use readily available but to also spark creativity. Designing a craft space that allows your creativity to flow is important.
Try some of these inspiring ideas!
Add Visual Inspiration
Ask yourself, what inspires you? Hang pictures of your family, magazine clippings, write out ideas, and even add images of previous work.
Having visual inspiration will help bring out your craft room decor.
Craft Room Storage
Instead of digging around containers trying to figure out what is inside, try adding clear or transparent storage. It’s a great way to see what supplies you have while keeping everything organized. Try adding an organizer cart that helps keep items you regularly use close by.
Create Your Color Scheme
Keeping a color scheme will help everything seem harmonious even if you chose to have accessories on your desk. Try choosing 3 companion colors for accessories to help maintain balance.
Color-Code Your Essentials
This is a great way to organize your pens, pencils, markers, etc. by color for easy access. Check out these colored pencils to add to your collection.
Try keeping them in cups on your desk for easier access.
Maximize Your Space
Choosing multifunctional craft room furniture is a great way to store your crafts while also using your space to its fullest potential. Another great tip is combing your desk with drawers or add-on cabinets.
If you can get them in a similar color and design as your desk, it will blend seamlessly and help keep everything where you need it.
Add Your Details
One of the best ways to add organization to your craft space is by labeling your items. This will also make it easier to find what you’re looking for when you need it.
Don’t Forget About Lighting
If you don’t get enough natural light in your room, it’s important to add as much strong artificial light as you can. Mix and match with floor lamps, desk lamps, and fun light fixtures.
Love Your New Space!
If you don’t have a lot of space, you can still create a craft station. By incorporating these tips and tricks, you can revamp your space to the craft room of your dreams.
