Sewing Room Ideas

I am writing this post from a temporary apartment while my new home is being built.  In a few months I will be putting together a new sewing and crafting room which I mentioned here.

The possibility of having a sewing room and craft room that is spacious and organized ~ well, it’s all I can think about. {Somewhere in all this sewing-room-dreaming I have to make other choices like counter tops, cabinets, and flooring ~ like that stuff is important :) }

Below, I’ve put together a collection of sewing and crafting spaces that have elements of inspiration. Maybe it’s the color, possibly the layout, or a clever use of space.

Creative Spaces

1. Art Gallery Fabrics

If my ironing board has to sit out, I hope I can make it as cute as this one.

2. Apartment Therapy

Great use of a small space. And, the chair is to die for.

3. More Apartment Therapy

Very well organized storage.

4. Elle Apparel

I am considering one of these ‘L’ shaped tables for sewing.

5. Craftaholics Anonymous

I like the vibe of this room; it makes me feel like creating.

6. The Little Things

Raise your hand if you love symmetry. {hand raised}

7. Raising Up Rubies

It’s a craft room most days and an occasional dining room when needed.

8. Being Brook

Lots of great work surfaces.

9. Tatertots and Jello

Another great use of a dining room.

Hide-away sewing cabinet ~ very clever.

12. 33 Stitches

Who wouldn’t love all this color!

13. Better Homes and Gardens

I think my new house has high windows similar to these. That’s why I like this one.

14. 36th Avenue

Red is my favorite color. Considering a red-themed room {not walls, though}

Craft Room

15. Fjeldborg

You’ll have to use Google Translate to read this one. So Scandinavian ~ beaded ceiling, walls, and floor. Be-yoo-tee-ful.

16. Craftster

Red and Turquoise ~ works for me. Love all of the small storage containers so well organized.

Craft Room

17. We All Sew

This one doesn’t have a real ‘wow’ factor. I’m impressed by how orderly the room is.

18. Patty Young (Mod Kid Boutique)

Love the red cabinets and the cutting table in the center of the room.

19. DIY by Design

If all you get is a closet for sewing, then this is a great use of space.

20. Infarrantly Creative

It’s remarkable how similar this space is to my future sewing room. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets.

Send me your best ideas ~ I’m going to need all the help I can get.

    Ooh… beautiful choices! Lots of great inspiration there! We recently moved and I am in the process of setting up my sewing/crafting studio in the basement… not a lot of natural light, but lots of space for storage :) I look forward to seeing your space! :)
    Happy Day!

    Those rooms are all beautiful, but I am amazed at how many of them seem to value form over function. For example, if I only had a couple of feet of counter space in a closet, you’d better believe I wouldn’t have a table-top picture frame standing there. And so many of them seem to have the sewing machine pushed to the back of the table or desk. I don’t understand that. Lots of pretty, though.
