This vibrant crafts room is bound to bring out anyone's creativity. Painted pegboard and simple shelves keep supplies organized, while paisley valances and orange lamps add color and pattern to the lime green room.
After interior organizer and home stylist Noelle Micek discovered her kid clients' favorite toys were their tools, she created a customized table apron to house their beloved screwdrivers, hammers and pliers.
This walkout basement had two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space. The 8-foot drop ceiling made the space feel confining, so the ceiling tiles were removed and the space feels much more open and airy with the newly exposed rafters with an attractive loft-like feel. After removing ugly redundant wiring from the entire ceilings, pipes, beams and walls were sprayed white.
Multipurpose Room Serves as Laundry Area & Craft Space
This multipurpose room functions as a laundry area and craft space. A bold blue island with cabinet space features a butcher block countertop that works great for messy crafts. In one corner, a niched wall works well for a stackable washer and dryer, and on the other side of the door, a built-in bookshelf displays art and knickknacks. A quaint powder room is nearby for convenience.
Bet you'd never guess this is a laundry room. On one side is space for laundry baskets and other essentials; the other half of the room features customized cabinetry for storing craft and art supplies and wrapping paper.
Connected to the kid's bedroom, this craft area doubles as a desk space for doing homework. A vaulted ceiling helps the narrow space feel more open. The long built-in wood desk stretches the length of the room and looks out a series of three window, two of which open for ventilation.
Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial to create a studio. It’s a walkout basement with two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space to create a project room for the children. The room is now a lively children's workspace.
