A dedicated craft room is the stuff of dreams. Imagine your own personal haven for arts, crafts and upcycling projects where you can create your favourite makes and really have some fun. Take a look at these brilliant and creative craft room ideas for inspiration.
Any sized and shaped room can work well as a crafting area, so don’t think you can’t commandeer a room for your work unless you have bags of free space at home. With a little careful planning and some research around lighting, storage and space-savers, that crafty little haven could soon be a reality.
Here, we walk you through all the things you need to think about to make the most of your crafting room. Whether you’re a sewing queen, a crafty giraffe or an upcycling fan, here’s how to make the space work for your projects…
Position your sewing table in front of a window to maximise the natural light, and invest in a good desk lamp for evenings. An adjustable swivel chair will make sitting at your sewing machine extra comfortable.
Breathe new life into old things by creating ingenious storage a vintage merchants chest from a salvage company or antiques shop is perfect for smaller items, while apple crates turned on their sides make great shelving. Use clear glass jars to keep decorative trims dust-free and close to hand.
Create a comfortable place to sit and leaf through books and magazines for your decorating and shopping ideas. Pay attention to lighting. A floorstanding lamp can be moved around and adjusted to suit each task.
Paint your own colour cards using your favourite paint shades and store them in an index box for handy reference.
