Sewing room design ideas may include the decorations and furniture to be used in the room.
Sewing is a creative pursuit, and the sky is the limit when it comes to designing a room that brings out your creativity. One of the biggest challenges is configuring your storage, especially all of the ancillary tools and supplies. When brainstorming ideas, it’s good to have a list of everything that needs a place.
Every sewer has a stash of fabric, probably a pretty large one, waiting in the wings for an inspired project. A wall of cubbies or a chest of drawers is a great way to store folded fabrics that are organized in a way that makes sense to you – by designer, by color, by fabric type or by project.
Clear glass jars arranged on a hanging shelf are a perfect solution to store buttons, extra thread, ribbon and elastic, keeping them handy and visible. Pegboard is a great place to organize and hang tools that need to be accessed regularly, and the empty spaces ensure that they get put back when not in use so you don’t have to go on a scavenger hunt next time you need it. To dress up the pegboard, paint it in a complementary color to the wall, and frame it like a piece of art.
Your room doesn’t need to just be a utilitarian workspace that holds all of your stuff. You’ll want to decorate it in a way that keeps you and your work fresh and inspired. White walls are for museums, so pick a paint color you love that also accents the room’s features. Blues and greens are cool colors, which could be a good choice if you want to inspire some calm during your sewing hours. They also make the walls appear to recede, which is helpful in small rooms. Reds, oranges and yellows are warm colors that can make a larger room feel cozy and comfy.
You can always decorate with art that you like, but sewing supplies often lend enough color and texture to a room that you may not even have to bring in extra decorations. If you have a colorful collection of fabrics that you love, don’t tuck them away behind closed doors; store them on open shelves so they become part of the décor.
In terms of furniture, if you have the money to afford it, it can pay off to design and get your own sewing table made from scratch so that you can make the most optimized use for whichever room you have available. There are a number of different designs that you can work with so that you can maximize the space you have available, which include the design of a U shape, L shape, or and I shaped sewing table.
An L shaped will work best when you are working in a corner, as this will take the best advantage of the space on more than one wall. An I shaped table will function best when working in a smaller cramped and narrow area, and a U shaped will end up working best if you have a full corner or open space that you are can work with.
When determining this, be certain to measure accurately the area in question, which also includes where you will be sitting, speak to a number of different professional manufacturers in regards to what materials will work best, and also shop around for the best prices as well as various deals that may be out there.
