Don't overlook opportunities for DIY wall units. This option can be very budget-friendly and will allow you to create a system that is specific to your needs. As shown here, hook racks were incorporated into the design of the display unit. This is a nice way to hang scissors, tape and ribbon.
In craft spaces, a peg board is one of the most versatile tools for organization. This is a great surface for hanging small buckets, bins and hooks. You can even paint your peg board to add a dose of creative color to the room.
If your craft room includes a wrapping station, then dowels should be your best friend. You can purchase them at your local hardware store and have them cut to fit inside shelving units. Dowels will keep your wrapping paper and ribbon neat, orderly and within arm's reach when you're ready to wrap that perfect gift.
A small shelving unit with cubbies will provide several areas for storage without taking up too much space. See-through plastic bins are also a great way to keep your supplies organized, and you'll be able to quickly identify your inventory.
Custom storage units with pull-out shelves will provide easy access to your supplies. Instead of using white, go for a fun punch color such as tangerine tango, which is Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year.
Natural-woven baskets remain a tried and true solution for storage, as seen in this space. Baskets are very textural and will provide an organic feeling to your room. Another great idea shown here is the use of hangers to organize fabric samples.
I love the idea of using simple, inexpensive clipboards to display and organize photos, fabric and paper items. Here, ordinary clip boards were covered with decorative paper which adds color and pattern to the room.
When designing a custom work station, be sure to include plenty of desk space as well as shelving. A corner work station will maximize space in smaller rooms. In addition, a cork wall surface works great as an inspiration board.
Use stencils to label drawers and pull-out units. This is a fun way to personalize your space and incorporate typography into your overall design.
