If you like to do crafts and create things, then you may be in need of a better area to do these things. If you are like many people, you may have started out spreading a piece of plastic on your garage floor and using that area to take care of projects that include sanding, painting and other preparation. When you become more serious about your crafts, you will of course want to make sure you have a more serious space to do them in. You will want a space that caters to you, so you can do more crafts in less tie and in a more comfortable manner. Here are some of the things you may want to add to your work area to create the ideal crafting space:
Choose the proper flooring: If you will be creating your work area in your garage or in another space with a concrete floor, then you may want to consider keeping the flooring as it is. Concrete is great for areas where you will be working on furniture and other similar projects because it is easy to clean before and after your projects. It is also hard and flat and can't be easily damaged.
Put up shelves: You want to put up shelves where your tools and other necessary equipment will be right where you need them, where you can reach up or out and quickly grab them. This will help you to create more floor and counter space, and help you to make the area safer and cleaner for you to work in.
Have enough counter space: If you don't already have enough counter space, then you want to install more of them. Make sure they are at the right height, so you can work productively. If they are too low, then you can hurt your back when you are working on your projects. If they are too high, then you will have a hard time working on certain projects. You may want to have one counter on wheels that has an adjustable height and that you can lock in place.
Install a sanding table: You should have a sanding table installed that is only for sanding and that's in a good location out of the way. This will give you the proper place to sand your projects where you won't have to worry about the sawdust getting where you don't want it.
