Creative Ways to Set Up Your Own Art Studio At Home

Setting up your art studio at home

1. Maximize that corner

If you’re living in a condo or you just want to have a little art space in your bedroom at home, just look for the perfect corner, where you can set up a desk, put in your paintbrushes, and own this creative space! On top of this, hanging some of your paintings and artworks on that plain white wall of your studio will allow you to create more accents. You’ll be surprised at how this simple trick can spell a big difference.

  1. You should be comfortable with your chair but make sure you’re not slouching
  2. Your computer screen should be at eye level and at arm’s length
  3. Natural or artificial light, you must consider this as it will affect color lighting on your artwork and might also result in eye strain
  4. Clutter slows down our focus and you can avoid this by organizing your art materials

2. Convert your garage to an art haven

It takes a lot of space to practice your passion for art and it requires a bigger area to store your supplies and finished projects. Do you have extra space in your garage? Maximize it by setting up your own art haven!

3. Take over that attic

Artists love to have their own space in creating another masterpiece. It sounds simple but everyone knows that it requires focus and concentration. Having your own private place will surely help you with that. Among the top-of-mind spots that creative people are utilizing in their homes is their attic. In doing so, make sure to consider the heat of the room because humidity can make your paint dry out fast.

4. Turn your spare room into a personalized art studio

If you have that one extra room at home, use it for the love of art. It doesn’t have to be big. You just need to have a space for your desk and your imagination. Placing your desk near a window where you can have a glimpse of sunlight while doing your art will make a big difference. You can also add some indoor plants for a more refreshing relaxing vibe in the room. Not sure which type of plants to consider? Here are some of the indoor plants you might want to take care of:

ALOE

SNAKE PLANT

CHRISTMAS CACTUS

5. Clean space means a clear mind

Clean space means a clear mind and a clear mind can help you release your creativity. You can also be more creative in organizing your art materials by creating your own art storage.

6. Create your own paintbrush holder

Having a jar of paintbrushes looks rustic, but doing your own paintbrush holder will make you look smart. You can do it by starting with a block of wood then drawing a line in every inch — vertically and horizontally, and drilling holes on every other line. Your drill holes should have to remove small and large ones to fit all of your paintbrush collections. And that’s it — you now have your own paintbrush storage rack! Remember to stay organized for a cleaner space and clearer mind!
