Consultation + Organization – Home Office/Craft Room

This room was originally used as an attic overflow space and computer room. The client was unhappy with the space in general and felt that it’s potential was not being put to full use. In our walkthrough, we decided that it would make a wonderful space for crafting/nostalgia, a workspace, and a gift wrapping station.

Since this room is level with the attic, it can be really hot in the summer; however, it only has two windows to access sunlight. By adding these light filtering curtains, the blinds can remain open without the room heating up! Plus it softens the decor and helps create that feminine office feel this client wants. Fun fact – these are actually tablecloths! We needed a weird size with a nice light filtering ability – it ended up being a very beautiful and cost effective solution.

A 4 square cube was added to the workspace area to elevate the desk space and give all the electronics the space they need. This also created 2 bins for printer paper and office supplies. Adding a cork board above the desk means small paper clutter was eliminated as well.

By adding a monitor stand with a drawer, small office items like calculators/flashdrives/sticky notes can be kept close by, but out of sight.

The Wrapping Station:

This was a pretty massive collection of wrapping materials, so we chose to go for a large scale station. We separated the paper, used tension rods for ribbon, added bins to separate tags/boxes/paper/more ribbon, and then topped it off with scissors/tape/pens. We utilized the architecture of the room to our benefit. This platform is actually the head space for the stairs below, but it makes the perfect wrapping/crafting surface!
