Being stuck indoors for a prolonged period of time can give you a whole new perspective on life. It also shows us how much time we usually tend to spend on commuting, going out and generally doing things that are away from our home and not always productive. The extra time that we spend indoors can be put to good use by cultivating a hobby that will keep us company for a lifetime. And the perfect place for starting a new craft or getting reacquainted with an old one is a small and ergonomic craft room that has it all.
Small craft rooms are easy to create if you know exactly what u need. Often, it is a space filled with multiple storage options and a crafting surface that comes in the form of an island or a desk. Of course, in the smaller craft rooms, you need a design that is much more flexible, responsive to your specific needs and gives your greater adaptability down the line. Some serve both as a home office and craft room while others just occupy a corner in the bedroom or the kitchen – no matter where you put them, this is a look at the best small craft room ideas around –
Smart Storage and Wall Space
In craft rooms, the most important feature is undoubtedly the many storage units and shelving spaces that allow you to tuck away all the supplies. In the smaller rooms, it is the walls that come to your rescue and you can use a variety of solutions like the pegboard, the metal grid or a series of hangers and hooks to get the desired result. Beyond these more apparent options and open, floating shelves, it is a collection of boxes and baskets that easily provides all the storage you need in here. For those who do not wish to commit to more permanent features like wooden cabinets in this small room, these clever ideas provide a nifty alternative.
Craft Room that Multitasks
We adore rooms that multi-task because they ensure that the same limited space can be used in more ways than one. In small urban apartments and modest homes, the craft room that also acts as your home office and homework space for the kids is an option that is definitely practical. There are very few compromises one needs to make in here with the crafting desk that can easily function as the home office desk as well. Maybe this can be your dedicated home office during weekdays and on weekends it can function as the crafting area that is home to your most creative projects! Since both rooms require the right task lighting, lots of ambient light and ample shelving, once again, the combination seems just natural.
Color, Lighting and Organization
In the tiny craft room, it is a series of dowels and pegboards that come in handiest as they turn even the most restrictive space into one that offers multiple storage solutions. Then you have cubbies, thrift store boxes, baskets and pull-out shelves that offer more closed storage options. Make sure that all this is illuminated by an even layer of recessed lights and if you have a window in here, then even better! The best small craft rooms can also seem disorganized at times when you have too many things going on at the same time. Keep the backdrop neutral and the color scheme simple to ensure you reduce visual fragmentation of the limited space.
