Putting Together Your Fall Craft Room

With August now upon us, your mind is likely turning to the last few weeks of the summer and the imminent arrival of fall. As you prepare for the kids going back to school, and the weather getting a bit cooler, you might be thinking about all of the projects you’d like to get done during the autumn season. If you like to craft and make things, then you might be planning on turning your home office into a craft room or workshop for the season.

At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you find the right self-storage unit for all of those things that you want to move out of the way, so that you have room for your crafts. You can rent a space for a few months, or keep everything in there for the entire year!

What Will You Work On First?

dreamstime_xxl_2853789Your fall crafts may consist of making decorations for the holidays, or working on that special project that will be someone’s holiday present. You might like to sew or quilt, or you may be doing some minor woodworking, and you need more space for all of your materials. Deciding what you will work on first can help you prioritize and organize your craft and project room, and figure out what needs to be moved out of the way, whether that’s furniture, file boxes, or something else. You may only need a table to work on, but you may need new shelving for all of your fabrics and other equipment.

Storing Your Finished Projects

As the fall progresses, you might finish one project after the other, but where do you put all of your finished work? Having a small storage unit can be ideal for those small tables, quilts, and any other crafts that you finish during the season. Storing them can also be great for those things that you’re going to give as presents this year, and you don’t want your friends or family members to see.

Making the Transition Easy

You may only use your craft room for the fall and winter, and then you transition the room back into a home office for the spring. By renting a self-storage unit, you can move things out for the end of the year, and then bring everything back when you want. Instead of trying to cram things into the basement or the garage, you can have a dedicated space for those extra belongings that would just be in the way, should you leave them in the craft room.

At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we want to make your storage experience as pleasant as possible. If you’re thinking about working on crafts or small projects this fall, then visit one of our metro-area locations today to find the unit that best fits your needs. If you have any questions or concerns, then our staff members and resident managers will be more than happy to help.

We look forward to helping you find the perfect storage space!
