Looking to set aside an area that’s dedicated to your own creative pursuits? Here’s how to get started:
Begin with comfort and safety. This might mean an uncluttered area for movement or a spacious worktable for crafts. Make sure you have good lighting, heating and (if necessary) soundproofing.
Keep everyday tools close at hand. If your table or floor space is limited, put up shelving or pegboards for the equipment and supplies you use regularly.
Invite inspiration. Personalize your space with your favorite colors, a display of thought-provoking items or a good sound system for music.
Seek out new ideas. There are many books and websites from which to draw inspiration for your space, including the book “My Creative Space,” by Donald Rattner.
