Organizing your craft room is likely to be one of your favorite adventures around the home. It’s fun, rewarding, and inspiring as you get to reconnect with all of the different projects you’ve dreamed up over the years. You will feel great as you shred through the clutter and make plans for new projects, but above all, you’ll be all set for your amazing crafting projects! Here are some simple craft room tips to try.
- Begin your craft room makeover by taking inventory of your craft supply categories. List out the key groupings of supplies – like sewing, painting, beadwork, and more. Next, consider how you would best design a craft room storage system that accommodates each individual grouping of supplies. You might like to set up some drawers under your table for instant access to the materials you would use there. A well-designed closet affords effortless craft room storage and a nice and neat out-of-sight, out-of-mind appeal to your space.
- Look into craft organizers and plastic drawer sets offering compartments just the right size for your scrapbooking supplies or your glitter collection. If you have bins and boxes available, take the time to sort your supplies into these temporarily, prior to buying any new containers or shelves for your crafting space, so you can see at a glance just how much stuff you actually have.
- Make a shopping list that includes the types of storage containers and furniture you want to buy as well as any relevant requirements or dimensions. Put a little note of what kinds of craft supplies go into each receptacle so you can think and change your plans on the fly if you can’t find something on your list.
- Check out cases and containers designed for specific crafting supplies. Sewing boxes, crochet hook cases, and other sweet craft storage items make it easy to keep your space tidy long after your overhaul. If you haven’t already got them all, add a few of these to your list for Santa to bring along this holiday season.
- Organizing craft supplies in a small space can be a bit more challenging. Pick up a couple of air-tight storage bins for any overflow items that may not fit into your neatly organized craft area. These items can take up residence in your attic or garage, and helps to keep your home as clutter-free as possible.
