Whether it’s scrapbooking or painting, creative hobbies can have a significant impact on your life and disposition. And as with various crafts, different tools and materials are often used to produce whatever it is you have in mind. But if you’re not careful, you might find yourself dealing with so much clutter — which could potentially negate all the good things that you’re getting from your craft.
That said, it’s important to keep your craft room organized. Having an effective storage system can help you with this and ensure that you’ll be able to maintain the order in your space.
Innovative Spaces, Inc., a trusted expert in garage renovations and storage solutions, shares some tips that’ll help you plan an efficient storage solution for your craft room.
Make Sure Everything Has Its Own Place
Craft rooms typically contain a wide variety of supplies and ornaments. To make it easier for you to find the items you need when you need them, you should start planning your storage system by listing the different types of supplies that you have and designating a specific area for each of them. Furthermore, when figuring out the best location and type of storage for each type of supplies, you might want to consider their size and shape as well as your workflow.
Organize Your Drawers
It’s nice to have custom garage cabinets and drawers. However, keep in mind that the items you’re going to place there should be organized as well. Drawers tend to get messy over time, rendering these storage solutions ineffective. Make sure you don’t simply dump your supplies inside the drawers. You can add small containers or dividers in your drawers to separate the various small things that you’re going to put in there. This way, your stuff won’t mix with each other, and it can be easier for you to maintain the order in your drawer.
Keep a Container for Miscellaneous Supplies
It’s common for creatives to have a pile of miscellaneous or leftover supplies from their completed projects. Instead of discarding them or leaving them in one corner, you can designate a storage container for these things. However, make sure to clean out this container on a regular basis so that it doesn’t fill up too quickly or unnecessarily.
