Got that spare room the in the house and not sure what to do with it? If you love making crafts, why not create a craft room for all your DIY projects?
Whether you already have a craft room or you are looking to create one, these awesome ideas will definitely help to keep your craft room nice and organized.
Reasons why you need a craft room:
- You love working on different projects at once
- You want easier access to all your materials instead of digging them out of the storage every time
- Your craft supplies are taking over the house and taking up room that’s used by your family
- You have a hard time keeping track of the inventory of your craft supplies
Tips on keeping your craft room organized:
- Organize the room by types of crafts: for example, if you dedicate a corner of the room for sewing then you should keep the sewing machine there along with any sewing accessories
- Keep a trash can and recycle bin in the room
- Keep an inventory of everything you own: This might sound like a lot of work but trust me it’s totally worth it. It has prevented me from buying duplicated paint and markers ever since I started keeping track of all the different tools and colors I own. You can start doing this on a spreadsheet on the computer or just use a notes app on the phone.
- Have a designated area for each item in the room. Yup even that tiny little paper clip’s gotta have a home. ?
- Put everything back to where it belongs after you’re done for the day.
