Craft Storage Ideas: Furniture – Clean & Modern Desks
Craft storage furnishings for the modern crafter!

Hi everyone,

It’s Sharon from Glitter Angel Designs here to share with you some ideas for craft desks.

This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, as I’m getting close to the arrival of my new garden craft studio.

I know that I want to have both a desk area to sit at, and something at standing height.

I currently use a glass-topped desk, which is great for cleaning up, and looks nice, but when I stand at it to use my Big Shot, I get a backache after a few minutes so I know having something at counter height is a must for my new room.


This is my current desk:

I like the modern look of it, and I think it will fit well in my new room, which is going to be mostly white.

One added bonus to having a glass-topped desk is that you can put a desk lamp underneath the desk and use it like a light box – very useful!


If you are short of space in your craft room, then the desk addition to the IKEA Kallax shelving is a great solution.

If you have an unusual space, or want something adjustable, then Ikea really does have some great options.

They have a whole range of separate table tops, legs and trestle bases, so you can create something completely flexible.

If you have a specific space you want to fit your desk into, you could even get a piece of counter-top cut to the exact size you need, then just use some trestle bases to support it.

You can view the whole range of IKEA table top and leg options.


I particularly like this one, since it has the lovely glass top I like, and is completely height adjustable.

And it’s on sale (in the U.S. at least) through August 5, 2015!

For something at standing height, again Ikea seems to have a good solution.

I’ve seen this kitchen island (below) featured in quite a few craft rooms, and in larger rooms I’ve also seen two units together to create a great, large working area.

There’s lots of handy storage space underneath too.

I hope I’ve given you a few ideas for your craft room – maybe you’ll see some of these products in my new room over the coming months, once I start shopping!

  1. LOVE the Ikea glass topped desk!! I created a die cutting station by cutting a sheet of plywood to a width of 22″ and put it at a comfortable height to stand and use my die cutting machines. I used some Contact silver “metal” paper to cover it so it looks like stainless steel.
    I also used an old table that we weren’t using anymore to create a 44″ X 72″ island with bookcases and shelving underneath for storage. One day I am going to be able to redo my room and have everything match but until then I am a happy camper!! TFS!
