Craft Room Storage


If you’re a crafter, you probably have too much stuff. Be ruthless in decluttering so that you can create the craft space you dream of. The tips and free checklist in Declutter Your Craft Stash will be a big help to you.

Organize by Priority

As you put each item away, think about how often you use it. Place your most frequently used craft items where you can easily access them. Place seldom used items up high, at the bottom of the stack or in the less convenient storage area.

Organize by Use

Evaluate where you use craft items in your craft space. Place items where you will use them. For example, keep pens on the desk where you use them. Keep vinyl near the electronic cutting machine. This concept of storage at the point of use is foundational for the best craft room organizing.

Use All Space Efficiently

Take advantage of vertical space in the room and on the walls.

  • Use tall craft storage cabinets and furniture
  • Use open wall shelving
  • You can even place shelves over the top of doorways
  • Use peg boards

Take advantage of hidden space.

  • On top of high shelves
  • In the back of deep shelves
  • Under tables
  • Behind chairs
  • In closets
  • Behind bookshelves or craft storage cabinets

Use Free & Repurposed Craft Storage Ideas

I love to repurpose items for craft storage and I really love to use free repurposed ideas.
