Did you know that even in a small home or apartment you can still be creative? The trick is finding room for a creative workspace. You need a place to work and store all of those creative materials. I am here to show you that even in a tight space you can find a creative workspace.
A desk is a simple way to start and can be worked into most tight spaces. Make it even better by purchasing a desk with a hutch. This allows you to go vertical with your storage. Get creative on the storage containers to maximize the space you have. Don’t forget you can store items on top of the hutch as well. You can see more of this desk plus my entire craft room by clicking here.
With cleverly used storage containers, this desk option can fit into any room in your home. Already have a desk but not a hutch? Consider building a simple desk hutch to go on your existing furniture. You will gain tons of storage for very little footprint. See more about my barn wood desk hutch by clicking here.
Another option is to go mobile with your creative workspace. A rolling cart with drawers offers tons of storage space and can be wheeled into any room in your home. Use your kitchen table as a work surface and you will be creating in no time. This Rolling Storage Trolley can be purchased by clicking here.
Need more room than a cart has to offer? Consider using a closet as both storage and your workspace. Shelves and bins store all of your creative supplies neatly and a folding table can be added to the closet for a work surface that can be hidden. A double or single closet will work for this purpose and both options can hold a ton of creative supplies. Click here to see more about my craft closet.
Are you begging for more storage and more room than any of the above options? Take a corner of any room in your space and GO HIGH! A bookshelf that goes to the ceiling and other high storage options will allow you to pack tons of craft supplies in a very tight space. A work surface can be built into the plans as well or consider a fold down table.
These are just a few ways that you can work a creative workspace into a tight space. Don’t let you tight space damper your creative side. Take a few square feet and be sure to flex those creative muscles.
