A few months ago, a client asked me to help organise her sewing room. She had just moved into a new house, and needed help setting up the space. In order to come up with an exciting plan for moving forward, I researched some 'real' spaces, looking for rooms that were not only beautiful, but could also be achieved without spending a lot of money. Here's some of the amazing inspiration I came across for organised, top-functioning and beautiful craft and sewing spaces.
1. If you are lucky enough to have a great big space or even a whole room dedicated to crafting or sewing, take advantage of wall space by utilising sectioned shelving above, and organised drawers below.
2. The different storage solutions used in this next space give it a creative and interesting vibe - glass jars, baskets, magazine holders, plastic and paper boxes, bowls and even mini-suitcases! Having a cohesive colour theme keeps it from looking too cluttered.
4. I often see this Ikea Raskog trolley being used in craft rooms. It's the perfect item perfect for containing the bits and pieces that come with crafting or sewing, and because it is on wheels, you can take it into another room to continue working or the kids can use it. Nothing like portable storage!
5. You don't need an entire room to have a craft or sewing space - this closet makeover shows how you can turn a small nook into the perfect getaway for getting creative. Floating shelves and fitted pegboard keep everything at arms' reach.
6. The Ikea Expedit unit is a favourite for organising and sorting various materials. Using different storage options, textures and colours allows you to put your own personal touch on the space.
7. The one below from Honey We're Home is my favourite use of the Expedit - so bright and colourful!! Megan decorated most of the boxes herself, either by painting of covering with pretty paper, making this type of storage a cost-effective option.
8. How to store your thread collection? Pegboard or dowel are great display options, and keep everything well organised to boot.
9. I love the look of a big collection of folded fabric on display, it adds to the creative feel of the room. If you've got a smaller stash, it might look better neatly stacked in a cupboard or dresser.
10. This space from Raising Up Rubies is definitely my favourite. Granted, Jaime has a huge space to work with, but she has so many cute and creative ideas going on that you could adapt for your own space. I love the different coloured baskets, the bird cage displaying fabric, glass jars holding ribbon and wool collections, the cute labels on the file holders, colourful embroidery hoops, art supplies for kids, and innovative way to display thread. So much crafty and organising goodness going on here!
Check back in on Thursday where I'll be sharing my client's sewing room organisation and make-over. Hope you got some ideas and inspiration from this collection!
