A true crafter is prepared for any art project at any given moment! That probably means that your craft room is fully prepared and stocked up on materials like pens, paper, glue, scissors, fabrics, and jewels that allow you to get creative when ideas spark. Clutter is easy to accumulate when you’re constantly adding to your materials pile. Plus, It’s difficult to get into that creative zone when you don’t have the room to do it or when you can’t find what you’re looking for. Here are some simple tips from the experts at Closet & Storage Concepts to turn your craft room into a perfectly purposeful space!
Visualize your space
What are things that get you in the zone? Does natural light help you visualize your art piece more clearly? Imagine the workspace that you want to be in and how you want to utilize it to its full potential. Think about the best location for certain items so they’re easily accessible. Rearrange that space to make it work for you!
Sort it out
Empty out your craft drawers, bins, and baskets and go through each of the products. Broken or unusable materials can be tossed and anything that you don’t need anymore can be donated. During this process, you can find an overabundance of certain items or maybe you’re running low on other materials. Take inventory of these items so that you’re fully prepped for your next trip to the craft store.
Once you’ve gathered the materials you want to keep, you can start grouping similar products together and placing them on shelves, baskets, or bins. Make sure that every product has a place in your craft room. If multiple items don’t go together, make a miscellaneous section. For items that you find yourself using frequently, make them easily accessible to you. You want to create a space where you know where everything is.
You can take your craft room to the next level by considering a customized craft room that is unique to your home. Make your dream craft room come to life by scheduling your complimentary in-home design estimate!
