But one project that we love that isn’t so common is craft room organization. Read below to see how we can help you design the craft room of your dreams.
What is a craft room?
If you’ve never heard of one, you might be wondering: what is a craft room? Craft rooms can come in various different styles and are designed to be a space for personal creative projects. Whether you like to sew, paint, draw, etc we can help you develop a craft room that provides work and storage space for all of your essentials. Many crafting hobbies require a dedicated workspace, can be a little messy, and involve many small tools. Having a dedicated and custom-built craft room ensures that you can keep track of all the essentials and have enough space to create.
No matter how small a room is we guarantee you have leftover wall space. It can be hard to utilize wall space since it’s vertical, however, a pegboard could be what you need to turn a regular room into a craft room. A pegboard is a perforated hardboard that is used to create vertical hanging space for bins and hooks. Before you decide what you want to store on your pegboard, group like items together and plan out the layout of your items. If you have large amounts of one type of item, you can use bins or baskets to keep those items in the same place. A pegboard is a great, inexpensive way to make the most of your space.
Work stations are perfect for providing both storage and workspace. With a workstation, your home projects will be more organized and less cluttered creating a better workflow. A workstation is excellent at holding all the supplies you need for your projects. If you’re only looking for storage, a slat board system or a wall cabinet would likely be a better option, but if you want space for your projects along with storage, a workstation is a fantastic solution.
Craft Room Cabinetry
Custom storage cabinets for your craft room allow you to store all your most clutter-prone materials to maintain a tidy workspace. Inside the cabinets, you can customize your shelving in a way that makes sense for the materials you have. Or if you want to account for expanding your collection, try adjustable shelving so you can change the layout as your craft storage needs evolve.
Customized craft room storage and organization can make all the difference for your creative projects. You can maximize the function and enjoyment of your space by having your tools and supplies within easy reach and maintaining an organized space.

Your craft room should be a space that allows you to feel unbridled creativity and artistic freedom. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to craft rooms becoming a space for clutter and constant disorganization, which can end up distracting you from your work and projects. Ideally, you’ll find a way to maintain a space that’s not too “sterile” and still inspires. However, you should also strive to keep your supplies organized so they stay in good condition and always right at your fingertips. Custom craft room storage solutions can help.
Here are five craft room storage and organization tips from More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte that can help you make the most of your space and take your creativity to new levels:
1. Abundant Shallow Shelving
Shelving that does not protrude too much from the wall but has plenty of space for your art supplies can help maximize smaller craft rooms. Shelves or cubby style spaces in varying sizes ensure there will be a place for all of your tools.
2. Wall Hanging Areas
Pegboard hanging systems provide easy access to your essentials while keeping them out of the way when not in use. Creative use of towel or curtain rods offers an innovative way to store rolls of cord or ribbon and other supplies you may not use daily but still need to have within reach.
3. Covered Bins
Stackable storage bins with lids offer numerous options for maximizing your craft room storage. Clear bins allow you to see their contents for easy selection. You can place these bins on existing shelving, or store them in room corners or along the wall. Maximize vertical space by stacking bins all the way to the ceiling.
4. Craft Room Cabinetry
Custom storage cabinets for your craft room allow you to hide away all your most clutter-prone materials to maintain a tidy space. Inside the cabinets, you can customize your shelving configuration in a way that makes sense for the materials you have. Better yet, opt for adjustable shelving so you can change the layout as your craft storage needs evolve.
5. Drawer and Bin Dividers
Many crafting materials and supplies are quite small. This makes effective use of drawer and shelving dividers an important part of your storage solution, as they allow you to keep track of these small items. Dividers come in a variety of sizes, so it’s easy to customize each area in the perfect ways to suit your specific materials.
Customized craft room storage and organization can make all the difference for your projects both big and small. Having your tools and supplies within easy reach while maintaining an organized space is essential to maximizing the function and enjoyment of your space. Customizing a craft room leads to a less distracting atmosphere that will streamline your projects and allow your creativity to soar.
