Crafting takes an eye for design and an appreciation of quality. You also have to have some top-notch organizational skills. Your supplies need to be systematized and easily accessible for you to get anything done, and that can be a real challenge sometimes.
At Closet America, we have storage ideas for craft supplies that can help you stay organized. Whether your hobby is scrapbooking or robotics, here are some custom solutions that will keep your workspace clean and neat and make it a pleasure to use.
Storage Ideas for Craft Supplies Throughout the Home
You probably spend a lot of time in your crafting area, and it’s possible that “area” encompasses more than one part of the home. You still want those spaces to look nice, as well as to be convenient and pleasant to use. Here are a few ideas on how you can keep your crafting space organized and inviting:
If you’re a woodworker or home auto mechanic, it’s likely you do most of your work in the garage. In that case, you’ll no doubt appreciate a spacious slatwall where the tools they use the most can be hung close at hand and in plain sight.
When your garage doubles as your workshop, organization can be a big challenge simply because of how much stuff you store there. A sturdy, high-capacity storage system for the other things you keep in the garage can be the difference between order and clutter.
Slatwalls can hold more than hooks. They can support racks and baskets as well, including ones designed for specialized storage needs.
Does your home office have a sewing machine in it? You may want a free-standing table for that sewing machine, with plenty of adjustable shelving along the walls for storing fabric, as well as current works in progress. Some drawers and baskets will come in handy below the shelves too.
If you knit or crochet, you’ll find that chrome pull-out baskets are ideal for storing yarn and thread, sorted by color, weight, or whatever makes the most sense for you.
Don’t hesitate to install shelves all the way up to the ceiling. You’ll be surprised by how much storage capacity you gain that way, and how nice it looks when the shelves have a finish that complements the rest of the room’s décor.
Many crafts are made easier when you have a spacious countertop to work on. An island or peninsula can make that possible. Home sewers can cut fabric there, artists can assemble your projects, and photographers can lay out photographs.
Like crafters, collectors also have unique storage needs. They may find that a custom reach-in closet is ideal for storing and displaying coin and rock collections. Drawers can be customized to store your collectibles, racks can be installed for the same purpose, and shelving can hold albums.
If you devote a walk-in closet to your hobby, you can have abundant display options, no matter what you have to show—from the tiniest coins and beads to swords and samovars—even cabinets, custom mounting, or LED backlighting.
Maximize your storage with over-the-door holders that turn the back of the closet door into an ideal spot for small parts or containers of rocks, coins, or craft supplies.
With a little custom design and a touch of creative feng shui, you increase your enjoyment and keep the house nice for your family—at the very least, you will avoid jokes about the messes you make.
