4 Ways to Keep Your Craft Room Organized

by Barbara Lane 07/24/2022

Keeping all of your crafting supplies together in a dedicated space is a great way to boost focus and creativity. However, many craft rooms can become overwhelming and unmanageable without organization. If you're looking for some simple ways to improve your craft room storage and organization, here are some ideas to help.

Clear Containers

One of the simplest ways to improve your storage and organization is to make sure your craft supplies are visible even when they're put away. You can achieve this by using clear containers like glass jars or plastic Tupperware. This strategy lets you keep small items like buttons secure and also allows you to organize by color, shape or any other criteria you choose.

Pegboards

Pegboards are a classic way to store tools and craft items without taking up any valuable surface space. You can attach a pegboard to the wall or the inside of a door for instant vertical storage. This method is highly customizable: you can add shelves, spools and other crafting-specific ways to store your supplies.

Mobile Storage

To save on space, consider using a bar or kitchen cart as mobile storage. When your storage is on wheels, you can easily tuck it away against the wall or into another room to make more usable space. Rolling carts usually come with built-in shelves and hooks for kitchen or bar tools, which translate perfectly to storing your crafting supplies.

Filing Cabinet for Fabrics & Paper

Filing cabinets aren't just for the home office: they can also be extremely helpful for organizing your craft room. Consider using a filing cabinet and basic file folders to organize anything you can store flat, such as craft paper or fabric scraps. Storing them flat in vertical folders improves visibility and also provides easy ways to label and sort by color, pattern or any other criteria of your choice.

Don't let your crafting supplies take over the room. Try these organization and storage ideas to bring some order to your crafting chaos.
