How To Make Your Craft Room Even Better?
When you spend a lot of time in your hobby or craft room, you want it to be as comfortable and functional as possible. While you may have the basics covered already, there are some additional things you can do to take your craft room to the next level. In fact, after using these handy tips, you may not want to leave your craft room ever again.
How Can I Improve The Lighting In My Craft Room?
There are several ways to improve lighting in a craft or hobby room. The first thing to look at is natural lighting. If you have some windows, letting that natural light in during the day will certainly make it easier to see what you are doing.
Of course, natural light does not do much during the night, so you will need so-called task lighting too. Task lighting is functional lighting such as table lamps and illuminated work areas. At Spotlight, you can find dedicated lighting like this easily, so be sure to check the catalogue if you do not have all the lighting you need for your hobby room.
What Is The Most Essential Equipment To Make My Craft Room Better?
One of the most functional craft room products is the Lazy Suzan. While the Lazy Suzan has crafting applications, it does become really useful as a storage or presentation tool. For example, you can use a big Lazy Suzan to store your crafting tools or individual containers of beads. Then, simply turn the Lazy Suzan to get easy access to the supplies you are after.
In addition to a Lazy Suzan, we also recommend getting a creative board. You can mount the board on the wall and use it to stick on patterns or designs you intend on using. It also gives you an immediate overview of the things you are working on.
While many people focus on the crafting aspect of things, they do tend to forget about the overall comfort in the craft room. Having the perfect workstation is great, except when you do not have a comfortable chair to work in. If you do not have a comfortable crafting chair, be sure to obtain one. Look for a chair with proper back support, ideally with additional support for the lower back.
How Should I Keep My Crafting Supplies More Accessible?
Do you often have problems finding crafting supplies in the hobby or crafting room? If so, it may be time to consider the storage solutions you have. If you have everything stored in coloured containers, you may be making things harder on yourself.
To make things easier to find, it is always recommended to choose clear storage containers. By choosing clear containers, you can always see what is stored in the containers and you do not have to keep opening boxes to figure out where you put things. You can even take it a step further and add a label to each of your containers.
To maximise the space available to you, do not solely use stackable, clear containers. You can also mount some storage solutions on the wall. In fact, one of the most convenient storage shelves can be put right above your crafting area. Use it to store the crafting supplies that you use on a daily basis to save yourself heaps of time.
Some mobile storage is not a bad idea either, especially if you cannot store all the supplies you use regularly on the shelf above the craft area. One great mobile storage option is a rolling cart, which can come with its own individual containers and drawers. Just as long as the floor in your craft room is not carpet, you will use this rolling storage all the time.
Finally, do not forget to reserve an area where you can display your finished projects. If you are into jewellery-making for example, you can install a bar where you can hang your necklaces and bracelets. There are also dedicated jewellery cards, which can be used to display your finished pieces. On the other hand, if you are into macrame, you can mount your masterpieces on the wall. You can get quite creative with this storage, but it does depend on the size of your projects and what material they are made of.
