Creating a space in your home for creative activities is both a luxury and a challenge. If you are lucky enough to have a room to dedicate as a craft room or work room, you face the challenge of how to decorate and furnish the space for maximum creativity and inspiration. We've pulled together eight great work rooms and craft rooms that have some of the key elements for creative spaces that inspire creative work.

Surrounding yourself with your creative materials, projects and inspiration is all important in a successful creative workspace. Organized supplies create a colorful display. Red and turquoise is such a happy color combination.

Storage and organization are key elements in making a space functional. This is especially true for creative spaces. Plan how you will use the space and furnish it accordingly.

Vintage industrial is a great style for a craft room or work room. A long table is a must for bigger projects, or cutting fabric.

For someone who works in textiles, decorating the walls of a workspace with colorful fabrics or scarves is simply perfect. Love the industrial feel of the work surface and storage cubbies.

A graphic custom painted mural in this home office and the drafting table indicate this is a space for creative activityĆ³and perhaps paying the bills.

Tons of storage, in both cabinets and bins, hides creative projects and supplies to keep this work room looking neat. Lots of recessed light fixtures shine light where it's needed. A few whimsical touches, like the rug and gumball machine, hint at the creative fun that happens in this space.
