If you’re lucky enough to you have a craft room all to yourself to create projects for friends and family, it can be tough to keep track of everything. In this room, you may be sewing, scrapbooking, or simply wrapping birthday gifts. While your workstation may be organized and neat, the rest of the room can only be described as organized chaos. Scraps of paper are under the table, rolls of ribbon can be found in every conceivable corner, and yards of fabric have been knocked over into a messy pile. Taming the mess requires a few organizational ideas that will allow you to get the items you need when you need them.
Display Shelving for Easy Access
When it comes to creating craft projects, you want to be able to see your materials so you can easily select and retrieve items. Customized cabinets by a storage manufacturer such as Closet & Storage Concepts, allow for you to have display shelves that are adjustable so you can place jars filled with buttons, zippers, and other items on top. You can move shelves to accommodate different container sizes so you can have the perfect arrangement.
Storage Drawers for Tools and Delicate Materials
Occasionally, there are items that you don’t want out on full display because you want to keep them dust-free and clean, such as expensive fabrics and sewing machines. Custom cabinets and wall units can provide pullout drawers for easy access, and cabinets with glass door inserts give added visibility. You can cut down on having to clean materials and tools before use and can store them safely away so young hands can’t get to them.
Slat Wall Organizers for Increased Storage
Slat walls and peg boards are great for craft rooms. You can have a peg board above your work table where you can hang scissors and other craft tools so they are within reach while you complete your project. You can also place hooks and racks with rods to hold large and small spools of thread and ribbons. The items can be displayed either by color or by use, and they can add a splash of color to the walls to become a part of your interior design theme.
