How to Make Space for a Craft Studio When You Don't Have Any Space


If you have a creative hobby then you need creative space. But what if you don't have enough room for one? I'm going to show you how to squeeze a tiny craft studio into your life no matter how limited your space!

No roof for a craft studio? Check out these ideas to make room!
For as long as I can remember creating has been part of what makes me who I am and I have always had a craft space. In my younger years I had access to my mom’s creative space in our house. My first craft space on my own was in my first house I bought on my own. The house was only 728 square feet and even with just my daughter and I, it was small! But I still managed to find a little nook in my bedroom for a small hand-me-down, folding sewing machine table and a vintage floor to ceiling tension rod hanger that I hung my craft supplies from.

From then on sometimes it was a whole room, sometimes it was just a corner of a room, and sometimes it was a whole floor of my house depending on where I was living. But I always found room for creating.

This is my studio now, a 10’ x 12’ spare bedroom.


You can see the whole room here:
Of all the spaces I have had, I think the smaller ones have been my favorites. Everything is within easy reach and it feels cozy to me (it also forces you to be a little more organized and selective with what you buy!)
If creating is something that makes you happy but you don’t have a dedicated space where you are I encourage you to think outside the box and find a place, no matter how small it may be!

Here are some great ideas for tiny craft spaces that I think you’ll enjoy. I hope you get some ideas for where you could squeeze one in if your limited on space.

Enclosed Balcony, Patio, or Mud Room Craft Studio

Many homes have unused balconies, patios, or mud rooms that could be converted into a craft studio.

This one is cool and it wouldn't be too difficult to build from two matching bookcases. Add a pull out desk space, wheels and attach the two bookcases together with a piano hinge and you'd have something very similar!
