Remodeling a studio...what to consider?














This is a post that I've been thinking about for awhile that hopefully will help some of you who have a studio; be it a small corner or an entire garage. I have the great fortune of getting to create in clay due mostly to sharing a studio with my Mom. It is about the size of a two car garage. Recently, she decided it needed bigger windows--and boy is there more natural light! so while the new windows were being put in why not insulate and paint too? Now we have a great excuse to re-organize the entire studio to maximize space; I will take pictures of how it evolves. I have done some research into how other artists organize their spaces, whether they are large or small. I found some pictures of creative ways that they've found to organize tools, books,etc. On this post I'll show you some cool ways to organize tools and some of the studios. It was difficult to find good closeups so I hope these will give you a general idea at least. I'm hoping to make this an ongoing project so let me know what you think!
The tool holders were made by etsy sellers: Designer's Embellishment Tool Form Size Medium by Evertale, Artist's Brush Rest or Holder by GeorgiesWarehouse, Desk Organizer by lessandmore, and Handmade Artist Caddy by kissesfromana
