If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the tornado of craft supplies that has taken over a room (or perhaps your whole home), you might need to employ smarter storage tools to keep your supplies in check. This craft room features several clever ideas that could be used in your home—no matter if you have an entire room or just a small area.

Don’t be dismayed if you don’t have one whole room to dedicate to craft; I just have a small corner of my living room where I store supplies, myself. I think the smart ideas in this dedicated craft room can translate to whatever size space you might be working with.

Wall hooks can be great for in-progress projects

Wall hooks aren’t just for bags and coats. In this space, they serve as a great spot for in-process projects. Not only does this help keep them untangled on a tabletop, depending on the project, it can actually look at bit like decor.

Shelves the same color as your wall + jars make you look organized

Whether you have an entire room to craft in or not, by painting or purchasing shelves (free-standing or wall-mounted) the same color as your walls, you’ll create storage that blends in, not stands out. By keeping your smaller craft supplies in jars (or other cute containers), the whole area will feel organized.

Baskets make supplies look like decor

Baskets are a lovely addition to any room, and they elevate the look of whatever you’re storing in them. So if you use baskets to store fabric scraps, balls of yarn or other craft supplies, you’ll make your space look more stylish.
