Your designated craft area can be almost anywhere in your home as long as you and your family are comfortable with the location. For some crafters, an entire room dedicated to artistic pursuits might be ideal, while to others, transforming a cozy corner of a family room or basement would be a creative way to find usable space. Wherever you choose to set up shop, just remember to find an area that is large enough to comfortably work in and that will hold all your supplies.
When designing your dream space, you'll need to consider your storage options. Depending on your space, you could opt for installing built-in cabinets, use versatile, stand-alone pieces that can be rearranged easily or a combination of both. For great storage solutions, check out Ikea. Its products include glass-door cabinets and various bookshelves that can be used for holding baskets of supplies. Home Depot also carries a good selection of storage products, such as a stackable organizer and the coordinating drawers from Martha Stewart Living.
Again, what space you have available might dictate what you can designate as a work area, but having at least one solid, flat work surface is a must. If you have the space and enjoy working on several types of crafts, setting up specific stations will help keep your area organized, and having a chair or stool on casters will make it easy to zip from one place to another.
