The Perfect Sewing Room

Transform your basement into a sewing room with a few accessories and a splash of color on the walls.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • The Sewer's Dream Room

      Create a cozy sewing space in your basement with a large corner desk, fabric storage, and a pop of color on the walls.

    • A Place for Fabric

      Perfect for stacks of fabric, books, and boxes -- we attached a long and narrow bookshelf to the wall for additional storage.

    • Organize the Accessories

      Hang metal, clear-top canisters on a magnetic strip and fill them with trims, buttons, and other small items. Utilizing wall space means a clear work area.

    • The Perfect Desk

      Spoil yourself with a real sewing desk featuring a lowered area for your machine, allowing you to have optimal space for making one-of-a-kind pieces.

    • Hide It in Boxes

      Eliminate clutter by storing unattractive items in closed storage. Label the boxes so it's easy to find what you need.

    • A Rolling Space

      Adapt a rolling metal shelf unit with locking casters into a movable cutting table. Add a flat surface to the top for cutting and you've instantly added space.
