How to organise a craft room or space
If you're lucky enough to have a separate craft room you've probably got plenty of space to get yourself and your supplies organised. But for a craft room that shares its space, you need to cleverly arrange everything for easy access, quick tidying and stylish looks.
ABOVE: Open storage puts ribbons, scissors and paints within reach. You might never run out of glue, but you will have to dust more often. White painted pine furniture, soft green walls and a splash of red make this an interesting space.
Customise the space
Design Tip: Customise the space to fit your needs. If your craft room is small, take advantage of corners and height with L-shaped desks and built-ins.
Design Tip: A craft room doesn't have to look like your creations blew up everywhere. Keep it clean with closed storage that allows you to be organised without the pressure of looking pretty.
ABOVE: Kitchen and bedroom cabinets can easily be installed and modified to suit your needs, and keep everything neat and tidy - and out of sight!
Design Tip: Colour coordinate your way to organization. Whether you organize all your books by colour, or choose stylish bins that match your colour scheme, be sure to surround yourself with colour that inspires.

Design in time
Design Tip: Allow 3-6 months to design and organize your craft room, even though you want to start crafting right away. Determine the room's layout by considering how you work and the supplies you need to store. Also factor in the time it takes to install cabinets or put together furniture.
Design Tip: If you dabble in several types of crafts, devise a versatile storage system that can change as you do.
Go vertical with slat wall storage and bulletin boards, or invest in canvas containers that are easy to rearrange and carry around.
