If you love crafting, you may find yourself working on projects all around your home. The dining room table may provide you with the best workspace, but this is also where your family relies on eating meals. You may want to find an alternative to working on crafts in non-ideal areas. Luckily, you can hire a home remodeling company to transform an extra bedroom into a craft room.
The first feature that you want to think about is the workspace. An excellent idea is to surround two or three walls with countertops and cabinets like what you see in the kitchen. Just like how you cut and prepare food on the countertop, you can work on all sorts of craft projects.
Some homeowners may not like butcher block counters because they are susceptible to moisture damage, but the craft room is not a place where you will have a lot of water exposure. So, you can choose butcher block with confidence or pick another material such as laminate or quartz.
Another way that you can add workspace is by building a custom island in the middle of the room. If you ever plan on having family or friends over to work on crafting projects together, you will appreciate how much workspace all the countertops and the island can supply when combined.
Ample storage is a necessity for a craft room, especially when you like to work on all sorts of projects. While a painter may only need painting supplies, you may want to have supplies stocked up for painting, scrapbooking, sewing, and more. Adding cabinetry below and above the countertop will provide you with a lot of storage that is right next to the workspace.
This will make it easy to grab or put things away as you need them when working on crafts. The custom island can also include cabinetry on every side to maximize storage capacity.
While you can work in the craft room standing up, you should make sure you have enough room to not only sit down, but to walk around the entire room. This means you will need to get strategical with the plans so that there is enough space for an island, countertops, and seating.
Barstool seats work well with an island and countertops. You will need to decide whether you want to have open space under these features so that you can push the barstools underneath.
Considering these details will help you create an ideal craft room for your needs. For more information, contact a local concrete contractor.
