Embrace open shelving. It's important to have plenty of supplies on hand for your children's use. Make it easy for them to access art supplies, toys and games with inexpensive open shelving like this piece from IKEA. If you're not keen on seeing everything stored on the shelves, try placing things in baskets for a tidier look.
Create activity-specific zones. If you plan to use your space for multiple activities, delegate specific areas for them. For example, if you love to sew, make a sewing corner. If you have a child who loves to draw, consider adding a drafting table and all the necessary supplies. This will help keep your room organized and make every member of the family feel at home.
Be creative with the décor. Going bold with the décor in your workspace is an opportunity to show your artistic side. How about a family art project? You can create a look similar to this installation by having family members paint pieces of white cardstock with watercolors. When you tire of the look, simply remove it and brainstorm the next project together.
