13 Real-Life Craft Rooms That Will Totally Inspire You To Revamp Yours

0Shares

A messy environment might be a sign of creativity, but clutter can be distracting, which can, in turn, lead to unproductivity. A tidy, inviting craft room, on the other hand, can motivate you to create your most impressive handiwork yet.
Check out some colorful, charming, coordinated craft rooms that could be the inspiration you need to overhaul and organize your own.
1. Keep Materials Out In The Open
When you can see and touch your art supplies, you might be more motivated to use them. However, your tools don’t have to be in messy piles or spread out around the room. Folding fabric and placing it in neat piles on shelves, such as quilter and Instagrammer @lima_bean_loves did, can remind you of the materials you have available.

I took an hour or so last night and reorganized my quilting cotton by color (don’t ask me about my flannels, cotton wovens and knits… 😜). Oh, and my canvas prints are all visible now, instead of being squirreled away here and there. I feel like I can find things again! And I realized how little I have in the way of reds, oranges, and purples. I also found some fabrics that I fell in Iove with all over again, as well as some that I have definitely fallen out of love with. . Any other makers out there who have supplies that you could now, a year or more later, live without?? . . #fabric #fabricstash #fabriclove #sewing #sewingorganization #craftroom #craftroomorganization #organization #sewingroom #ikea #workingmystashoff #sewsewsew #sewistsofinstagram #maker #makersgonnamake #mamamaker #bagmaker #imakethings #creativelifehappylife #livecolorfully #color #colorful #makesomething #makesomethingpretty #spreadjoy #makermovement #makermom #clovisca #happymonday #limabeanloves

2. Arrange Upward
Your walls can be a wonderful place to store tools and other supplies. Hidden Ridge Designs picked up attractive pegboard from Ikea. She uses it to hang everything from Cricut tools and glitter to Mod Podge and glue.

Several people asked for a closeup of my IKEA pegboard so here you go!

3. Include Comfort
A relaxing and cozy seating area can make a craft room more welcoming. Micaela Ferrero has a cushioned bay window, but you can find other ways to create comfort. Think large chairs with soft throws, oversized floor pillows or even a couple of bean bags.

4. Don’t Forget To Decorate
Choose decor that encourages you to be creative. Wall art with meaningful words or phrases, such as those used in @confetti_paperie’s craft room, are pretty and powerful. It’s even better if you craft them yourself!

5. Keep Essentials At The Ready
Nothing kills creativity more quickly than trying to remember where you left your glue gun. Think about the tools and materials you use most frequently. Find an attractive and convenient way to have them on hand whenever you need them. Gina Love of @acraftybeenamedgee put this organizer together with pieces from the dollar store.

Worked on some craft room storage this weekend. I made this a little corrugated tin piece from Tuesday Morning more functional with a little hooked hanger and some magnetic storage containers I found at Dollar Tree. Total cost = $10.

6. Think Outside The (Storage) Box
Bottles, jars and other see-through storage containers are highly inspirational. Not only do they give you a glimpse of the materials you have handy, but they can also give those objects a whimsical appeal that boosts creativity. Katie Sabin of Just Add Sunshine made this section of her craft room look like a candy store.

Do you choose a word and/or phrase for the year? If you do, what is it?! I think I’ve settled on rise and shine for mine but I’ve had a hard time deciding. If you swipe over you will see the four I’m trying to decide between. They’re all things I want to do/be better at this year so I’ll just go ahead and hang the signs in places I’ll see every day and work towards bettering myself all year long. Sounds like a solid plan to me! #katiesunshinescraftroom #justaddsunshinesigns

7. Make It Your Own
Jars, bins and other traditional organizers are valuable tools, but you can use anything that speaks to you. These vintage muffin tins used to separate old baubles proved perfect for @upcycledworks, who repurposes and redesigns old jewelry. Look around at what you already own and consider new ways to use those items.

8. Color Code Craft Components
When you determine where materials should go and how you’ll store them, take a little more time to sort them by color, such as Meka of @yespleaseplanning did with a drawer of washi tape. When you have a project in mind, picking the perfect items will be simpler. Also, doing so can help you determine whether you’re running low or are overstocked on certain colors or patterns.

9. Stack Visually
Crafters tend to be visual people, so putting items where you can see them makes sense. Vertical and horizontal stacks that allow you to spot what you have and grab what you need will inspire you. If you mix materials and containers with complementary colors, such as LiveItLikeLisa did, it’s lovely to look at, as well.

10. Labels Are Your Friends
If you opt to store supplies and tools out of sight, prevent the need for digging through drawers or bins. The crafter behind Early June Shop used a Cricut to create labels for drawers to make organization and access quick and easy.

11. No Space Too Small
If you have a full, sprawling room devoted to your projects, more power to you! But don’t be discouraged if you craft in a smaller space. Find ways to organize and inspire yourself, such as this colorful craft cart @hellokawaiipenpal uses to store supplies.

I took advantage of another snow day and organized my craft supplies! I bought this cute rainbow craft cart at Michaels. I love it- only downfall is it doesn’t fit 12×12 paper. 😍🌸 Loving my girly desk! #girlyworkspace #workspace #craftorganization #craftroomorganization #craftcart #girloffice #girlyoffice #bujosupplies #penorganization #kawaiispace #kawaiidesk

12. Use Space Creatively
While drawers, bins and shelves are awesome, they might not work for every medium. Consider the size, shape and usage of your materials. Come up with clever ways to store them, such as these wall-mounted vinyl rolls.

13. Ample Workspace Is Essential
While you’re cleaning, organizing, and decluttering, don’t forget to make space for what you love to do. A clear, roomy workspace within reach of tools and materials is a must. Think about the types of crafts you want to create and find the ideal surface, such as a repurposed counter like this one.
