Craft Room Storage Ideas

Does the beginning of a new year make you want to organize and purge? Are you looking for some new craft room storage ideas? This time of year definitely gets me motivated to organize and purge, but I'll admit that organizing and purging is a constant thing for me. It's almost part of my creative process. As new products come into my space I'm always moving things around to find a better workflow. Nearly 2 years ago, we moved into our current home and I've struggled with the placement of everything in this new space. I've rearranged my room multiple times, but just recently I went back to a set up I had several years and two houses ago. This set up worked great for me then and I'm finding that it still works for me now and I'm wondering why I was fighting that set up from the start. My desk is in the middle of the room facing out toward the door and all my supplies (at least the most used ones) are behind me on shelves.

I still have some work to do in finalizing things and once that's done, I'll do a full room tour. For now though, the next step in getting my space completed is to find a counter height long table of some sort to place opposite my desk. On this I want to place all of my larger craft tools - such as my Big Shot, Silhouette, Minc, and paper trimmer. I found one from Ikea that might work, but of course it's out of stock, so I'm going to have to be patient until it becomes available again. Until then, I'm going to be hanging curtains, which will add some texture but also to unfortunately cover the lower part of the large window in my craft room. I love the natural light, but in the summer it faces west and it gets over 90 degrees in my room and in the winter their is quite the draft and it gets rather cold. So some insulating curtains will help and I'm going with white to keep it bright. It also helps that my husband installed 4000K can lights in the ceiling, so the room is quite bright with those. After that, I'm going to finally hang some art on the walls and make this space more me!

Until the room is completed though, I thought I'd share some of the new storage options I've recently added to the tops of my Kallax units thanks to some new products from Scrapbook.com. They released several new items including a Stadium Organizer and a 4 Drawer Organizer that I've fallen in love with. They are made from heavy duty 4mm ultra thick greyboard wrapped in sturdy white glossy paper. I'm not a huge fan of plastic storage, most of what I have is wood or upcycled vintage containers, so these make my reduce/reuse/recycle heart happy!

The Stadium Organizer is perfect for storing all sorts of things, from stencils to stamps to dies and pretty much anything you can think of. If you are into pocket scrapbooking, they are perfectly sized to hold 3x4 and 4x6 cards. Two of them can fit side by side on an Ikea Raskog and they can also fit in your Kallax units.

The other product I'm loving is the 4 Drawer Organizer. It's made from the same material and has 4 drawers that you can fill with all kinds of goodies. You might have noticed that I customized mine a bit by adding some Tim Holtz Idea-ology knobs. To do this, remove the drawer, flip it around so that notch is to the back, drill a hole in the center of the drawer and then insert the knob. It took just a few minutes to dress them up with these knobs. As for the storage part, I'm using mine to hold my collection of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ephemera, and I'm kind of thinking I might need another one! Also, 2 of these will stack on top of each other to fit inside the Kallax units. They won't fill the entire space, but I love that they fit!

Speaking of storing paper bits, another option I love even though it's plastic, are the 4x6 Clear Photo Craft Storage Case. I'm currently using several of them to store extra die cuts, and other Idea-ology bits.

If you are looking for something to hold small embellishments such as sequins, beads, buttons, or as in my case any of the metal Idea-ology bits, the Scrapbook.com Storage Jars are a great solution. I love that they have a secure lid that is easy to remove, but when you close them you don't have to worry about things spilling. I also love that I can see what I have due to the clear plastic.

I hope you enjoyed learning about some of my new Craft Room Storage Ideas. If you have any specific questions about them or my craft room in general, please don't hesitate to reach out. And as I already mentioned, I'll be sharing a full craft room tour here as soon as I can.
