Usually we see that most artists enjoy creative and messy studios and it is pretty common for them to spill their creativity over the floor, over the table and throughout the entire studio. Just as you need to organize your living room, if you’re an artist, you also have to declutter your art studio so that it looks clean and tidy. That will not only help you find out things with ease, it will also add a new look to your studio which will be pleasing for your visitors. If you now think that it’s high time you take a stand against clutter, you should free your mind and create a blank canvas for making a blank canvas and an organized space. Here are some tips that you may consider following.
- Utilize more containers: Pens, corral paint brushes and other tall tools should be kept in baskets and jars. How about organizing your art supplies into old spice jars and keeping them lined up within a drawer? Remember that the more you can organize the items together, you easier it will be to find them out. If you think that the containers which you buy from the stores are boring for you, you can try such pastel glass jars or design it with some bold paint colors.
- Use the empty walls of your studio: Do you see a lot of empty walls lying unused in your studio? If answered yes, it’s high time you organize them vertically. Whether you build floor to ceiling shelves or you just want to add a few boxes that are nailed to the wall, you should take advantage of having all your art supplies within the level of your eyes but off your desk spaces and floor.
- Hang them in a design: If you’re hanging your wall storage units, you should leave a space for other larger scraps and hanging fabric. You can easily keep them off the floor and apart from the crumpled piles and also add various colors to the type of fabric for the additional organization. Ensure hanging them in a good form so that it adds to the look of your art studio.
- Keep a track of what’s going in and out: One of the most essential points of keeping your studio organized is to keep a track of your inventory levels. It is only when you know the number of pieces that are going out and the number that’s coming in, that you can prepare your studio space. You can try and maintain a spreadsheet for managing this as this will give you an organized way of keeping tab.
Therefore, if you’re an artist who has long been thinking of organizing your studio but you have not taken the first step, do it now without giving it a second thought. Follow the tips mentioned above and declutter your space of love.
