Attic design – use of space

An unused attic is the perfect place for a crafts room–not only it is quiet but all the little nooks and crannies create hideaways for supplies. In a small, compact space, everything is within arm’s reach, but organization is key.1

An entire wall of custom shelving is the perfect solution for storing a large collection of scrapbooking papers. There’s no need to dig through a messy bin of paint bottles when they are organized by color along a top shelf.2

A counter, desk, or table is always necessary in a crafts room. This one has large drawers to hold the tools and supplies that are used most often-scissors, tape, cutting tools, and adhesives.3

Consider storing colorful ribbons, scraps, or buttons in clear jars. A long row of them is both functional and beautiful.4

The homeowner chose to store her stamping supplies in an antique desk, which fits perfectly in this little attic nook. The three drawers and fold-down top are perfect for corralling a a lot of products. The homeowner drilled a hole in the back of the desk for the cord of her light-box, which rests on the desktop.5

Pretty white and pink boxes hold more supplies and scraps of paper. Handwritten labels make items easy to find and add a personal touch. Family photos and artwork sprinkled around the room provide everyday inspiration.6
