I’ve worked with many clients that wished they had the female equivalent of a man cave, the craft room. Some have converted the basement, part of the laundry room, or even the extra walk in closet of the guest room. Wherever they could muster up some space, we made them a crafty sanctuary. So here’s a look at five of my favorite inspirational craft rooms:
This space is a converted garage in which they added lights,an island, bookcases, and a rug. With very little money, you can start your space with these basics just to get you going in the right direction.
White is always the number one choice for most craft rooms. It creates a clean working space where you can spot anything out of whack fairly easy. The down side? It’s hard to keep it clean when you work with a lot of glitter or shedding fabrics. The most important aspect of any craft room, though, is storage.
I’m venturing a guess that this is either in a daylight basement or a garage that has been tiled. I love the fact that they used black furniture which feels more sophisticated to me. (I have black in my craft space) As you can see from the shelves, they are using everything from baskets to jars to laundry tubs to keep things organized.
This space throws me a curve ball. Is it a kitchen? A laundry room? A craft room? I’d like to believe that it is the kitchen/ laundry area of a mother in law suite that was not being used. If that is the case, kudos to the home owner for giving the area a purpose. Though I am confused because half of it is organized for crafting and the other half is sparsely decorated. Any thoughts?
