If you’re interested in getting a custom service done by More Space Place Bradenton, you might be wondering: how does this process work? Take a look at this first-hand account from one of our designers, Jamie Kirk, on the process from start to finish. 

The Project:

“A customer in Lakewood Ranch came to me for help turning a bedroom of her recently purchased home into a multi-functional hobby room she could be proud of! She wanted to have a workspace that could also be used for crafts but thought it would be great to have a secondary guest room as well. 

When it came to designing, the customer had some ideas, but not a full vision. I assisted her by discovering that she needed a lot of file storage, display areas, a Queen Bed, and a functional workspace. As for the details, she wanted the room to feel light, and airy, with a hint of modern aesthetic.

The design that we finalized, as pictured, fits her room perfectly! At about 12 x 15, we had a lot of great space to work with, though a design like this can be scaled down to a room as small as 10 x 10. In this rendition, we put Large File Drawers with a Custom Window Seat, for which the customer stated she will make a cushion herself. 

To create a beautiful Display area, we created a wall-to-wall Custom Hutch on either side of the Murphy bed with Trim Atop. This creates a very clean, bright, and functional-looking unit without using glass or lights. These units match the height of the bed while being more shallow than the bed and Countertop below. This, therefore, adds dimension to the shelves above and seamlessly ties in the workstation.

The Materials used include:

  • Custom “Hebron White” Crescent Edge Formica Countertops
  • White Chocolate 5 Piece Shaker Doors, Drawers, & Trim
  • White Melamine Cabinetry
  • Brushed Nickel Metal Pulls “7227”

A configuration like this can be customized in many different ways, based on the customer’s needs. In every case, I try to discover my customer’s primary needs for the space in terms of usage, storage, and aesthetics.”

custom craft room storage - Sarasota, FL

custom craft room storage - Sarasota, FLYour 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. Contact More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte today to schedule a free in-home consultation!
