Getting Crafty!

Man caves have been all the rage lately, but how about creating a space geared toward the lady of the house. More and more homes are incorporating craft rooms as a place to get creative. With storage for wrapping paper, ribbons, paints, threads and more, craft rooms are a great spot for enjoying hobbies.

1. Made for Multi-purposing. By Cabinet Concepts by Design. This space is multi-purpose. Not only is it a craft room, but also a homework and office space. The large island is intended for gathering the kids to do crafts. There is ample storage on both sides of the island, including wrapping paper and ribbon storage for easy access, and a tall storage cabinet for a variety of storage needs.


2. Organized and Accessible. By Stoneridge Builders, Inc. The client, being an avid crafter and do-it-yourselfer, wanted to create a space that was organized, practical, yet beautiful to look at; we think she succeeded! All the crafting materials are organized and displayed and easily accessible.  It is truly a unique and beautiful room.


3. For the Lady of the House. By Duckworth Interiors. This multi-functional space was created to be the laundry room and craft room for the lady of the house.  One of the doors connects to her husband’s study, which was a great solution for them to be near each other in the evenings while still working on their own. The base of the island was made from vintage library card catalogs to house small craft items and was painted red.  We incorporated etched glass to spell “Create” in the upper cabinets. Below the uppers, you’ll notice rods to hold all of her ribbons and trims.


4. Quilting Spot. By Melissa McLay Interiors. This craft room was created for a pediatric doctor who loves making quilts, especially with her friends.  She wanted a space that was light, colorful and fun and large enough to hold quilting parties.  The sofa was added to the space so her husband could relax with her while she works.
