There can never be too many workshop and craft room ideas! Peeking into people’s creative spaces is like visiting candy shops for a DIY enthusiast like me.
Is your workshop or craft room (or just a little creative corner) an organized and happy place to be? Is it clutter free? Does it bring clarity of mind? Or is it a place that you fear all the stuff would fall out like a mud slide each time you open the door?
Today, I am sharing some of my favorite, workshop and craft room ideas from creative planning, storage and organization, to best craft room furniture and decor!
Based on our own experience, a well well organized workshop or craft room can magically boost our creativity and inspire us to start our dream building and crafting projects!

1 & 2. Pegboard craft room ideas
The pegboard is a simple and flexible system that can be installed on a wall or on the side of a cabinet. It is great for both large and small space organizations.
These two craft room ideas are great examples on how to create beautiful and organized storage on pegboards using floating shelves, containers, towel bars, paper or ribbon holders, etc. ( Source : 1 | 2 )
3 & 4. Using labeled containers for workshop and craft room storage
You can also use wooden crates! Check out how to make your own vintage inspired wooden crates from pallets and how to transfer images easily to wood!
5 & 6. Colorful craft room ideas
A workshop or craft room deserves the same attention and love as a living room does.

7, 8 & 9. Open shelving for workshop and craft room organization
Two types of my favorite craft room furniture are drawers and open shelves.
10 & 11. Turn Closets into workshop and craft room storage
12 & 13. Workbenches and tool carts
BTW, one of our all-time favorite projects on this blog got started the day we completely organized our messy tool closet.
We “remodeled” our generic rental patio into a beautiful outdoor room that we enjoy EVERYDAY!
14 & 15. Wall organization using French cleat
The French cleat system is really popular among woodworkers. It securely holds heavy loads while still allows easy adjustments and placement.
In the pictures above, you can see a simple shelf as an example of how one can easily make all kinds of tool holders and move them around to any spots on the cleat. ( Source : 14 | 15 – see video below )
16 & 17. More French cleat
More examples showing how the French cleat is a really flexible system that lets you get creative customizing it. ( Source : 17 )
18 & 19. Endless possibilities with Pegboards
By now you probably can tell that pegboards and French cleats are two of the most versatile systems for craft room and workshop organization. I love the pegboard wall at Remodelando la Casa and the pegboard tool cart by Mom4Real.
20 & 21. A place for everything and everything in its place.
These systems makes it so easy to see and reach everything. No more fumbling in drawers or cabinets! Because everything has its designated place, it is easy to keep the craft room and workshop clutter free.
During the entire semester when I took the woodworking class and made this wall cabinet from scratch ( tutorial and free plan here), the classroom / workshop was always so organized and a joy to be in.
Once we finish our move ( hopefully this year) I will show you our workshop and craft room!
