58686NC)-Now that your children are out on their own, you may want to concentrate on those hobbies you never had time for or create the home office you have always wanted. Whether your passion is scrapbooking or you need a place to keep your files in order, having the proper work area can help you complete your tasks. “Start off with one of the great storage options available to help you organize, and complete the project by adding unique decorative pieces to complement your individual style,” says Frank Turco, Manager of Colour, Trend and Design from The Home Depot.


A great craft corner or office is one with supplies that are organized and easy to find. From Closetmaid’s versatile storage system to ready-to-install or custom cabinetry, there is a perfect option for every space and need. Whether you need multiple small shelves to store all your supplies or a large display area to showcase your finished projects, it’s easy to customize the storage for your new hobby corner to suit your preference and space limitations.


Once the space is organized, consider the optimal layout for lighting. If your work is detailed or if you will be spending hours reading, selecting a bright light at the appropriate height will allow you to focus on minute details. For an environmentally preferred option, choose one of the many LED lights available at The Home Depot.

Finishing Touches

Once your storage area is organized and the lighting is set, focus on the overall décor of the room. Do you want a calm space to help you unwind? If so, consider painting your walls a neutral colour and accent the space with a warm area rug. However, if you are looking for bright inspiration, add a funky accent wall by using a vibrant or unexpected paint colour or interesting wallpaper design.

Whatever the case may be, a well-designed space will be sure to help you get the job done!

Having trouble finding YOUR dream home? is the place to go.
