10 Great Craft Room Ideas

1

Keeping Your Crafts Front and Center

When you design your craft room, don't forget to keep your eyes on the prize -- those beautiful things you're making -- whatever they happen to be. Chances are some of your precious projects will end up languishing in a drawer or closet unless you make the effort to find a place to display them in your craft room. Many crafters develop projects for shows, as color studies or as fun experiments. Having a spot in a craft room dedicated to displaying experimental and other specialty pieces is one way to make sure your work gets the attention it deserves. It's also a subtle reminder to finish projects that may need one or two refinements.
