Craft Room Loft Conversions

Crafting is more popular than ever before, with huge numbers of people taking up crocheting, knitting, decoupaging, sewing, cross-stitching, jewellery making, and scrapbooking.

While it can be a fantastic hobby or even small business, crafting can quickly take over your home if you don’t have a dedicated space for it. A hobby taken up to reduce stress can easily turn into arguments about clutter or mess (especially if it involves glitter).

Creating a dedicated space for your crafts is the ideal way to remove the mess and ensure that you can work at any time without disturbing the rest of the family. While some people convert their guest bedroom into a craft room, it can make things awkward if you have visitors regularly or have family over for the holidays.

Purpose-Built Craft Rooms

One of the best things about a loft conversion is that you start with a raw space – you can do anything you want with it, whether you need to create in-built shelving, large worktops, or space for a kiln and machinery.

If you would like to create a space dedicated to your crafts, it’s important that it’s laid out in an ergonomic and sensible way. Building your own loft conversion means that absolutely everything is tailored to your needs. We highly recommend having custom cabinetry made for your craft room, or hacking shop-bought storage units (such as Ikea’s Billy Bookcase) to make sure that it suits your height, frame, and materials.

Turn Your Crafting Hobby into a Business

Websites such as Etsy and eBay mean that it’s easier than ever before to turn your crafting hobby into a small business. A dedicated space means that you can create more items and larger pieces to fulfil orders. You can even build a small set to photograph your pieces professionally and present them at their best.

If you attend craft markets or fairs and need to decorate your own stalls, the additional storage space offered by a loft conversion is perfect for putting your items away without having to worry about damp or mould that can affect things left in garages or storage units.

A well-presented loft showroom can even mean that you can bring clients back to your studio for fittings or custom work.
