Creative craft rooms — what dreams are made of!
With school days in full swing, backpacks are exploding with supplies, and half-finished art projects are spread out on the dining table. You may be wondering how to contain all this creativity and bring some order back to the house. A craft room might be the perfect solution. Whether you carve out an area in your basement or dedicate an entire room to your creative retreat, there are several ways you can design the space to meet your needs. These are all built with our Wood-Mode cabinet line.
The beauty of a craft area is that it can be multifunctional. You can use it for sewing, painting, homework, crafts, gift wrapping, potting plants, or even folding clothes. A pull-out hobby table is an ideal space saver and can be built into a wall unit or cut into the underside of a basement staircase. When my kids were little, we did endless school projects on this table and would slide it back into the wall when not in use to create more floor space. I particularly like the finger routs in the tiny apothecary drawers.
Good lighting and adequate storage make a hobby room functional. Being able to stow things away will keep everything clean and uncluttered. Cabinets with adjustable shelving give you the flexibility to customize the height of each shelf to the exact item you will be storing. You can have fun with the design by adding colorful containers and custom storage compartments for large and small-scale supplies. A chalkboard wall or easel can be used as an expressive canvas for storytelling, drawing, posting the “word of the day,” or displaying a weekly calendar to keep everyone organized.
With an organized and well-designed space, your family will know exactly where everything is, and returning those items to where they belong will make life easier and more efficient. These craft rooms feature small apothecary drawers, tray partitions, lateral file drawers, custom height cabinet with grid to hold wrapping paper, adjustable shelves, a printer drawer, and a peg board for craft supplies.
As Mom always said, “…a place for everything and everything in its place.” Check out our other custom designed spaces for every area of the home here.
