Choosing cabinets that are specifically designed for work stations will allow you to optimize your crafting corner in all of the best ways. Imagine high cabinets for all of your scrapbooks and tray dividers in your drawers. With a designated spot for every tool and supply, your artistic self can create with ease.

Take advantage of vertical space with wall cabinets.

When choosing cabinets, don’t be afraid to design up. If you’re building a crafting corner with limited square footage, wall cabinets can be the solution. Don’t forget to take advantage of vertical space.

Keep things clear.

Glass canisters and Mason jars are great for storing anything from nails to buttons to beads. What makes them even more wonderful is that lined up along a shelf or your desk, they also double as décor. Clear storage solutions let you liven up your crafting corner while also keeping things organized.

Add some inspiration.

Décor is as important as the design of your crafting station. You want this space to be somewhere that your mind is inspired and set free. In addition to fun spins on your storage solutions, also indulge in some color and creativity. Does blue calm your mood? Do photographs motivate you to make something special for the ones you love? Let your favorite colors and things lead the way in transforming your workspace into a sanctuary for imagination and creation.

Divide and conquer.

If your work station is part of another room, there are a few things you can do to create a divide. Painting the section of the wall that serves as the backdrop for your crafting corner is one simple way to separate your area from the rest of the room. You can also add an accent rug to carve out the space. If your work station is part of the kitchen or another room with cabinetry, you are better off choosing cabinetry that complements the other installation but that is noticeably different to disconnect.

Multi-purpose and make it work.

For some homeowners, bringing the idea of a crafting corner to life may be more difficult than dreamy. If you are digging to find an area in your home to flip and are coming up short, consider an add-on station that builds upon an existing concept in your home. Maybe your home office, guest room or laundry room could accommodate your crafty vision. When adding unconventional additions to your home, sometimes it requires thinking outside of the box. But there have been work stations that have been built inside of closets and out of old armoires. When there’s a will there’s a way!
