Do you wish for a stunning craft room like the ones you see in photos, even on Google? But keeping things tidy is a big problem for many crafters, they get so involved in the process making them the least careless about the rest of the stuff. And it’s very common. Artists are generally considered messy.

But keeping that temple of creativity organized is not impossible at all. You can be both creative and organized by changing a few things and changing some of your habits importantly.

The craft room organizing solutions that you need can differ because every crafty mind has different interests. For example, if you are inclined towards paper crafts, then you need ideas for your craft stationery and papers, if you are interested in sketching and painting like me, then you need a solution for your paint bottles, brushes, sheets; likewise, if you are inclined towards wooden crafts, then your requirements would be different. That being said, some organizational ideas can be used for any craft room.

Below are a variety of organizing ideas for your craft room to stay organized while you are boosting your creativity.


First of all, you need to plan the ‘craft room’. What I mean by saying this is that you need to figure out places for storage furniture such as shelves and organizers. You need to look at the walls and find the most space-friendly place and a place that fits well.

Then you have to prepare a plan. This plan should simply determine how you’ll utilize the space or how much space can be allowed for the furniture? What type of furniture units you should include? Where will your working space be?

And answers to all of these questions will be different for everyone because you all don’t have the same room, so just keep these basic principles in mind. You can answer these questions for yourself very easily depending on big the room is or how much stuff you plan to store in it.

If you have more stuff you need more organizers and if you are planning to keep it minimalistic you don’t require much shelving and furniture. The space just should not look cramped.
