Imagine the ideal space for you to design, sew, scrapbook and more. From must-have furniture pieces to organization tips, this guide will help you build the craft space of your dreams.
THREE ESSENTIAL PIECES
Every crafter needs the basics: a flat working surface, a comfortable place to sit and handy storage. Consider versatile pieces like a collapsible crafting table that gives you room to spread out and takes up very little space when you’re not working.
DECIDE WHAT KIND OF SPACE YOU HAVE
A) Blank Wall
A blank wall in your family room or den can serve as a dual purpose crafting/home office. Choose storage with closed doors so supplies stay neat and out of sight.
B) Cozy Corner
This specially-designed desk makes any small corner big enough for your dreams.
Add wall storage to take advantage of every inch of space.
C) A Room Of Your Own
Have a spare bedroom or can use a large space in your attic or basement? Create the ultimate crafting space with designated furniture, storage and seating areas that let you tackle big projects in style.
CRAFTING STORAGE STARS
Stay organized with the true heroes of crafting like handy bins that store fabrics, yarns or other supplies and wall storage that keeps desk-top clutter at a minimum.
TRY THESE CRAFTING SPACE IDEAS
A) Smaller spaces call for hard-working storage like a three-drawer file cabinet topped with an apothecary hutch filled with cubby drawers. Add a rolling cart that slides under a desk when not in use.
B) Make more room for large crafting projects by pairing a spacious crafting table with a desk.
C) Add a free-standing bookshelf to your crafting corner to keep tools and supplies handy and orderly.
