Add shelving
If you have a dedicated craft room, pop up a few floating shelves or create bespoke shelving in an alcove. Line the wall behind with wallpaper to pretty up your scheme and keep your desk space clear by using a variety of jars and baskets to store your kit on the shelves.

Hooks & racks
If you have space on the wall behind your desk, why not fit some hooks and racks so you can keep all of your essential kit close to hand. A simple spice rack is perfect for storing small jars and hooks are ideal for your cotton reels.

Jam jars
Remember not to throw out jars or even boxes. Reuse them to store smaller crafting essentials like pins, beads and cotton reels. Why not add ribbon or a pretty label so when they are lined up on a shelf they make a decorative display.

Fill a vintage suitcase
If you're short on space or your craft room also doubles up as a spare bedroom, why not turn a second-hand or vintage-style suitcase into a portable crafting station? Divide into sections and fill with your craft kit. When you're not using it, simple slide under the bed out of the way.
