10 important tips for craft room organization
focus on function
From my friend Maya: “I think to organize a lot of people stuff to try, but it’s really the space you want organized.” do you want to work the room and get to work. Start by thinking of how the space can be reached in that. This means that the walls and find out where you can shelves and organizers.
inventory of Everything
you Consider everything that you have – even if that means spreading it on the floor! You are probably going to be a bigger mess before it gets better, but that’s fine – you need to see what you have. So you’ll have to dig in the drawers and you will receive all the items in front of you.
get Rid of Excess
of the Maya: “brutal. If it doesn’t support that’s function, it will only distract you from him (which is bad).” Keep the stuff that supports the function of your room, and get rid of the rest!
My personal tip: if I haven’t something that it needs to be in a year, way. You have friends who craft? A craft exchange and see if you get any use out can do to him!
Organize your Hobby
As to your post, to catch you, put you in stacks that make sense, depending on the hobby. Perhaps scrapbooking is in a range; knitting in another; sewing in yet another. This will also help cut your supplies, if you realize you have duplicates!
you will Invest in, the organizers
you’re going to have some craft organizers, that’s for sure! After a visual verification of the items to start buying organizers from a hobby. You keep the receipts! I decided to buy a surplus of organizers, so that I had enough, and return to it’s easy to give them when finished.
This step takes a bit of experimenting with different types and sizes that you like, but you’ll get the hang of it. My initial purchases consisted of metal shelves, Shoe box-sized organizer (clear) and drawer sets (clear).
immerse yourself in a method
In any hobby, I chose the organization, the colors of the rainbow as my method. This means that all of the red tape together, then orange, yellow, etc. I did the same with fabric, yarn, scrapbook paper, glitter, and everything else. Once you know how you want to organize, put him in the tank with this method!
Keep your most Important items at eye level
If you have items that you access frequently, and we all make (scissors, brushes, etc.), then save these to your eye level. You’ shouldn;t have to bend over or climb on a ladder, something you use every day.
Use your Vertical space
are your most important items at eye level – now working around the. Keep your secondary items low so that you can bend down to get them. Less used items should go up, perhaps even where you need to head a occurs, in order to access it. You have a lot of vertical space in the room – take advantage of them!
Offer Some of Mobile storage
One thing that was ESSENTIAL to the carts in the organization of my new space was the mobile memory. Some of the things out of the drawer and on wheels – for me it’ painting;s and Mod-hodgepodge. Storage cart to provide easy access to frequently used items.
Don’t Tackle it All at Once
Don’t expect to have your entire work space organized and ready to roll in a session. It can be overwhelming to cope with frustrating all at once – together to give you a couple of days or even weeks (for a couple of hours of the day) to you all. Easy on yourself!
