It is not uncommon for people to have an interest in crafts like sewing, knitting, beading or even making small things for the home and as presents for loved ones. This requires that some space be set aside in a home that allows you to engage in this activity whenever you have the time to spare.
Most people will carry out such activities anywhere in the home, maybe a living room floor, the dining table, the work bench in the garage or basement or anywhere where they can keep their sewing essentials and materials required so that they remain undisturbed. This requires that you do give some thought to organizing your craft room, so that it makes for convenience.
I like how Melanie did her sewing room so I’m sharing it on the blog today. Check it out;
Any craft room requires certain requisites that will allow it to be the most useful. These are:
Storage is the most essential and it must be able to segregate the various materials that are part of your craft, and the tools that go to making things. Tools can be kept separately in a toolbox, and if there are many of them, they need to have proper slots and racks that allow tools to be kept away easily, when they are not in use.
Customize these arrangements and even buy various stands and other devices from the same shops from where you get the basic tools. Make it a practice to always store away your tools when not in use. You will never find yourself searching for them when they are needed. Make similar arrangements for the various materials that you require for your crafts, and learn how to segregate them by size, color or whatever way you need to use them. If there are a number of small things, ensure that each part is stored separately in similar sized jars or bottles, each of which is correctly labeled, so that you can get to them instantly.
Your craft room needs to be easily accessible to you whenever you have the spare time, and the storage that you arrange must also be easily reachable, without your having to strain yourself to reach it. Label everything, even if it is very obvious, just as a practice to remain properly organized.
Many forms of craft require a lot of detailed and fine work, and this will be helped if you have the proper lighting in your craft room. Natural light is the best, as it allows you to be careful with matching colors. A window in your craft room is an ideal condition. In case, you are forced into a corner of the home, make sure that you provide sufficient lighting arrangements. Pay attention to power points. Some crafts may also need your craft room to have water and drainage points, which must be convenient to use.
Your craft room must have original ideas that encourage you to constantly use it and be creative, whenever the urge to be so, does take hold of you. Make it bright and inviting, so that you always feel energized when you go into it, and this can be of great help in your craft and what you are able to make.
