10 Great Craft Room Ideas

Keeping Storage Convenient

Over the years, you've probably invested in dozens of plastic storage bins for your papers, ribbon, yarn, fabric and other supplies. You might find stacking them all in your craft room an inconvenient option, though. Any storage solution you have to dismantle (lift, heft or tote from one place to another) will eventually -- and usually sooner rather than later -- become a big hassle. Opt for wall and freestanding storage shelves and cabinets that make getting at your supplies as effortless as possible. Keeping your craft room user-friendly is one way to ensure that it will stay organized and of real value to you over time.
