3 Creative Craft Studio Set Up Tips From A Pro!
As a crafter, getting your craft studio set up is one of the most enjoyable things you can experience! Creating your dream fantasy craft studio is so much fun. And if you have already started, you’ll know there’s a lot to think about. However, some things are going to be more important than others.
Here are some ideas and considerations for your craft room:
Craft Studio Set Up Tips From A Pro!
Start By Choosing a desk or table for your craft studio set up

Choosing a desk or table to work on is a big part of your craft room set up. So, you need to get it right. Your first consideration is probably going to be how much surface space you need. For example, if you’re going to be cutting rolls of fabric or using equipment such as sewing machines and die-cutting machines, then you’ll need plenty of desk or tabletop space.
And then there’s the surface itself to think about. If you’re using things like knives and scalpels or working with wood burning tools for example, you’ll need to think about cutting or heat resistant surfaces.
You may decide to go down the bespoke route, with an interchangeable top, so you can work with the correct surface material for your projects.
My favourite option is obviously the DreamBox craft unit:
Creating organised storage for your craft studio Set up
Organised storage is another top priority for your craft room or work area. And there are plenty of storage ideas that lend themselves to good organisation. If you have bits and bobs stored in drawers, then flexible drawer organisers will keep things from getting jumbled up.
Cube storage units are great for storing larger items and are great for keeping organised as they allow you to insert storage tubs or baskets into each section. But there’s more you can use to keep everything in its place.
Hanging rails with ‘s’ hooks aren’t just useful in the kitchen, you can hang pretty much anything from them. And rows of coat hooks can be used for hanging everything from storage baskets to buckets. Plus, they’re easy to add labels to.
Space saving ideas for your craft studio Set up
Shelving and furniture can all save space. If you really don’t have much space to work, then a bureau-style desk could be a good compromise. It will give you a pull-down work surface and handy storage.
Modern versions of the traditional bureau mean you don’t have to stick to old-fashioned furnishings either.
Wall shelves will keep the floor space free for your desk or table. And there are plenty of smaller shelving ideas you can incorporate into your craft room or craft area. Pegboard walls, shelves that hook over the back of doors, cube shelves are all useful for those short of space.
