Crafts, sewing, and Arts have been around for generations and the reason they still exist is because they really are a relaxing and gratifying way to pass your time. Unfortunately, a lot of space and storage is really necessary to execute and enjoy this activities. (I know my scrap booking habits would often take up our whole kitchen for weeks at a time when I was focused on a project.) This article is all about inspiring craft and sewing rooms.
In this post there are going to be examples of how important table space is, storage suggestions, and unorthodox concepts to make the room functional, yet fun.
The thing about arts, crafts, and sewing is that it really does take up a lot of space. Listed below are several inspirations on how you can ulitize large, small, or medium rooms.
Need space but in confined area, while also appearing attractive to your rooms theme? Find a large (or small) cabinet where you can store all of your supplies. It won’t take up as much space and when you close the doors no one will be none the wiser as to where all of your craft making items exist.
You might also color coordinate your room and create a charming mood while still remaining functional. Use drawers everywhere to organize and store all of your necessary items, also, under the tables and against the walls. That way, it leaves more table space to write, cut, paste, sew, or draw.
Or, you might consider a posh looking room, which was once a dining area or maybe a den modification with a huge table to play creatively. But include in your room the use of shelves in the background. The shelving across the wall give plenty of room to store supplies, but it also opens up the room. This gives you the option of taking even a small room and devising a way to store your items in an expanding working area.
The Importance of Table Space
The need for table or working space is paramount, so one is going to need table space whether it be to draw, to sew, to scrap book, or any other craft. If you have a large room, have fun with it and decorate doing any theme that strikes your fancy.
Dress one room up for a sewing room that can easily swap out for a different craft or project. Use a table fors sketching , cutting materials, and comparing different color palates against each other.
Try a sewing room with a sense of humor that also serves as a practical workspace. If you use your imagination your options are limitless.
When you’ve learned ways to work with small spaces, have shelves, cupboards, and can conceive a way to work a large table for workspace why not have a little fun with your craft room? The point of the room is for hobby purpose, so why not be innovative and inspired.
One idea is for an office or even a fancy kitchen with an island with custom cabinetry. The shelves and cupboards already built into the walls, and the clever island type desk, makes your room practical yet completely unconventional.
