Going through the design process, you may have already set a room in your new home aside as a craft room. This room will house all your craft supplies and your work station for creating. The right design, shelves and other storage areas will make a huge difference.
What can you do During the Home Design?
Some home builders will help you by creating built-in shelves or other shelves you can use in your craft room. They may also help with other custom design options. No matter what you need, speak to your builder first. They may have a solution far better than your original plan.
Once your home is built, it's time to start organizing your supplies. You can organize by color and make the supplies look a bit like a rainbow. For rolls of ribbon, you can create shelves out of two pieces of trim with a "V" pattern. This will keep your ribbon stored and on the shelf without issue.
Another option for other types of ribbon rolls is to use a large dowel and create a roll with all the colors on it. It will look much like a large paper towel holder and will allow easy access to all your ribbon.
An old dresser can be painted and turned into a great piece for your craft room. A dining room table you plan to throw out can be repurposed as your work desk. There are several options and you can take from your old house for your craft room.
Create the Ultimate Craft Table
Of course, if you want your craft room to really come alive, the most amazing craft table will do the trick. You can buy a craft table already built, or you can custom build it yourself. Many will use a table top with multiple shelving units as the legs. This gives you the ability to create cubbies for storage and make the table fit the size you specifically want.
Creating your craft room in your new home is like working with a blank slate. Speak with your builder and you can start customizing the room to fit your specific needs.
