I've worked in visuals and merchandising so I've learned the best way to design a space is to pretend it's a store. So for example pretend your closet is a boutique, how would you merchandise it? Or if your craft room was a craft store.....? So how would you display your yarn your selling? Below are a few ideals that fit with my way of looking at design.
|Check out this cool wood working job for yarn storage from Easy Makes Me Happy|
|Prudent Baby used a wine rack for yarn! Notice the storage of knitting needles and notions on top too.|
|Laughing Purple Goldfish Design uses magazine files for yarn storage on shelves, genius!|
|Dottie Angel has created beautiful storage for her knitting needles (storage in cups and pitchers on top) and yarn with her book case which could also double as a side table.|
|Talia Christine used simple mason jars for storing her needles. Simple cheap and modern, I love it!|
|large clear vases turn yarn storage into works of art as shown by Little Lady Patchwork|
|Cube yarn storage from Steamy Kitchen gives you the option of using baskets, open storage or both|
|Imagine this tiered basket pictured in Loopey Ewe with similar colors in each basket.....|
|You could also pull the drawers out of a dresser and use containers like at Sew Many Ways. I prefer open storage or pretty baskets like Steamy Kitchen did (pictured above) but I know clear plastic containers can have it's benefits too (easy to take out, protected from bugs and water, easy to see what you have).|
|Hanging storage for yarn from KTB Designs. She didn't say what kind of hanging storage she used. I'm guessing a hanging shoe organizer would be best for most yarn collestions.|
|Cornflower Blue Studio puts her bits of leftover yarn onto clothespins, what a great ideal!|
|Wine racks work great for yarn storage. Prudent Baby came up with another way to use wine racks for yarn storage, under the desk. So smart and I love that it fits the modern look of her desk and chair.|
|I've actually seen this before and didn't think it was too cute for shoe storage, but I never thought of it for yarn! I actually think that would be super cute in a craft room. It looks like it's screwed together with nuts. Drilling through PVC is easy so this should be pretty easy to make.
