Sewing Room Ideas – Functional and Pretty to Boost Productivity

My husband and I are currently renovating our home, and hopefully I will have a beautifully organized space at last. Over the years I accumulated a large stash of fabrics (blush) and notions, finding good storage solutions along the way, but I wanted to keep everything in one room (and not just under the sofa, in our bedroom wardrobe and all over the house.

Sewing room ideas on a budget

With the prices on the rise, it makes perfect sense to keep an eye on the budget when planning your sewing room.

  1. Don’t pay the full price

You can get a lot of furniture or storage items on thrift stores or from a local facebook marketplace. Another idea is to use ikea storage solutions (I love them). I used Alex drawer unit with Linnmon tabletop (current version is called Lagkapten) to keep most essentials nearby as I sew and cut

 

  1. Reuse things you already have around

  • Use coffee cups to hold sewing tools
  • Use jars to store buttons
  • Kitchen sponges can be pin cushions
  • Bathroom towel rack can hold ribbons and fabric
  • Filing cabinet for fabric storage
  1. Discard unused stuff

I know it sounds harsh, but listen. It costs nothing to get rid of stuff just lying around. It clears up more space you can use

  1. Rearrange existing furniture

It costs nothing, but can make a world of a difference. Make sure you leave yourself lots of walking and working space

I love the Better Home & Garden cube organizers at Walmart. They have different finishes and fabric bins that fit perfectly in them! They are not expensive and are very sturdy. I display my fabric in them and keep other supplies the fabric bins. I stacked an upright 8 cube with a 4 square cube and they almost reached my ceiling! Giving me 12 cubes of space!
