Large or small, colorful or rustic, what kind of sewing room do you want?
Design Styles: Pictures (1-4) show different sewing room styles. You’ve got the more rustic rooms that uses old wooden storage containers, and then there are more colorful rooms with the fabric all on display and painted shelves. You even have a very minimalist room with black and white furniture pieces and a well organized mood board.
Small Sewing Room Ideas: If you have a small space to work with, or don’t have a lot of space in the house for a sewing room, some options include turning a closet into a workspace (5). The great thing about doing this is that you can close the doors and hide everything away when it is not in use. And the inside of the doors make for great storage space. Have a look at our closet offices post for ideas on turning a closet into a functional workspace. For those with even more limited space, a good sized suitcase can be organized to store all of your sewing equipment (6).
Another idea is to divide up an existing room like a family room, bedroom or kitchen to make space for a sewing area. A room divider like an IKEA book shelf seen in picture (7) can hide away the sewing area while the rest of the room is being used for something else. Have a look at our DIY room dividers post for more ideas and designs on how to easily divide up a room.
Picture (8) shows an outdoor shed that has been created into a cozy sewing workspace.
Large Workspaces: If you have a large room, and are looking to create an ultimate dream sewing room, a kitchen style island in the middle of the room would be a great feature to have(9). A central workstation makes it easy to grab everything you need, and provides for a large countertop to work on.
