To be a functional work space, a craft room should be well organized and have a great layout. Often times, a room designated for crafts is on the small side. However, a good design can make the space work.
For my own craft room, I used a lot of homemade storage. Most of the homemade storage is made out of recycled materials and I also up-cycled some old furniture to hold all of my supplies. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to create a functional and organized room.

Recently, I also added a craft room space at my cabin. The space is pretty small but it still works for most of my sewing and craft projects.
The storage caddy is made from a recycled six pack container and the hanging bar is an old broken yardstick!
Large Craft Room Designs
If space and budget are not a concern, then these craft room designs will be a great inspiration for your own space. You may even find that you want to incorporate some of the dream designs with the more frugal ideas!
I like the layout of this first craft room with the center island work table. The side cubby storage is super handy as well. If your space is large enough, this would be a fun design. You could really use any kind of table for the center island. The overhanging pendant lights add the necessary task lighting. This craft room design came from Oh Happy Day.

Colorful Craft Rooms
This craft room by homehousedesign.com is a great sewing and laundry room combined. If you do a lot of sewing, it makes sense to combine the two rooms. There is always washing and ironing of fabrics that needs to be done with a sewing project. The color on the walls of this room is so vibrant and inviting as well. It is good to think about color when you are designing your room. Pick a color that inspires your creativity and that invites you in.
One of the things I like about this room from Nest Pretty Things is the big floral chair. It looks so inviting and comfortable! The cheerful colors of the fabrics and storage containers also work to make the space inviting.
Carole Knits craft room is a fun makeover to see! The space combines everything that I love in a craft room. There are frugal recycling parts with old furniture along with some brand new storage pieces. A center island provides some additional storage. I also love the angled ceiling lines and warm colors.
With all of this inspiration, you can start thinking about your own space and what ideas you would like to incorporate into your own craft room design.
