If you’ve got a craft room or work area already set up in your home, you may be looking for a few ways to improve your space. Making it feel more homely and keeping all your supplies in place, can be a challenge. So, here’s a few ideas to create a cozy and organized room.
Make it cozy
Whether your workspace is for your job or simply for pleasure, you want to feel at home in it. And there are plenty of ways you can do this. A warm-feeling floor is one great addition. You could install a soft carpet that will feel great under your feet as you craft. If you’re a DIY fan, you could even learn how to lay carpet yourself. There are plenty of handy video guides to show you what to do.
However, if you’re someone who does a lot of messy crafts, such as painting, then a solid floor you can clean, maybe more useful. Of course, you can still make it cozy with warm wood tones and plenty of cushioning under your laminate or vinyl. And these can be installed with your DIY skills too. Most laminate is designed for DIYers to use with boards that click together.
Using fabrics in the room can also add a cozy feel. You could put up soft drapes or blinds. And by making them yourself, you could save a bit of money. Roman blinds are perhaps the easiest to do. Or perhaps you could make a fabric wall hanging or frame-up some nice off-cuts as art!
Add DIY storage
If you’ve been crafting for a while now, you’ve no doubt got some storage set up already. But there’s always room to create more!
Old glass jars are one of the best free resources you can turn into handy storage. They’re great for keeping things like buttons and bows in. You could keep it simple by storing them on a rack and adding pretty labels. Or you could make use of the underused space on your wall shelves. Simply attach the jars by gluing the top of the lids to the underside of your shelves. This will create twist-off jar storage, that’s easy to reach.
If you like handy storage near your worktable or desk, then a pegboard is another great addition that you can DIY. You can make one yourself by drilling holes into a piece of plywood. The pegs themselves can be cut from pieces of dowelling. Give it sand and paint it up in some cheerful colors and mount it above your worktop!
And if you’re a stay home that needs to earn extra money from home, why not find some easy stuff to make and sell for money? Let’s look at these best crafts to sell that can help you to make a high profit. You may require additional materials and tools, but that’s okay since you are investing in your own business!
