The coronavirus pandemic has affected our daily lives immensely over the past year. Spending so much time at home through quarantine, stay-at-home orders and remote work has given people a lot of time to invest in activities they previously didn’t have time for.
We’ve all learned the benefits of learning a new hobby with so much time on our hands, and we’ve also found new ways to use space in our homes. Home offices are a huge trend in 2021, as are craft rooms devoted to hobbies. If you’re interested in creating a craft room in your Poulsbo, WA home, or are looking for ways to customize a craft room, here are some tips to get started.
Investing in a home craft room
Whether they’d just like more space to devote to a pandemic craft, they have children they’d like to keep occupied in a productive way or they’ve taken on a lucrative side hustle or even full-time job as a crafter, more and more people are investing in craft rooms in their homes. There are countless ways to customize a craft room for whatever you’re focused on, with everything from elaborate built-in cabinets, islands, tables or shelves that are custom made by professional general contractors to upcycled containers for paper, yarn, fabric and more that you put together yourself.
If you’re serious about your craft and have the space, it is wonderful to have an entire room devoted to crafting. But you can also create great crafting spaces in a spare guest room, a basement, laundry room or even a family room with ample storage.
Designing your craft room
A well-designed craft room can be extremely motivating while learning a new hobby. If you have a space that offers enough room to work and has enough storage available that it’s actually possible to keep the room neat and tidy, it will help you to enjoy your new craft and practice it often without the obstacles of mess or inconvenience.
If you’re planning to design a custom craft room in Poulsbo, WA, consider working with a professional construction company to help you realize your vision. A professional contractor will be able to build durable and high-quality custom elements in your space, like countertops with storage, work sinks, shelves to keep everything you need at your fingertips and more.
Craft room ideas
When considering ways to customize a craft room, there are some things you’ll want to keep in mind. No matter your craft, you will do well to find a large, sturdy table to use as a work space. Glue a measuring tape to the edge of your work table to help with easy measuring for your crafts. Find containers you can recycle for storing your craft supplies—unused pizza boxes are great for stamps, soup cans are perfect for paint brushes and craft supplies like ribbon and cotton balls can be stored in kitchen canisters. Mounted pegboards can also work wonders for storage.
