Imagine you have an entire day to yourself, a day to spend however you want. You wake up that morning, eager to start a creative project — and then realize it’s too dark inside your house to see what you’re doing. 

Many rooms in homes have limited natural sunlight, making it hard to see projects you’re working on inside. If you are looking for a place to set up a creative studio, a sunroom is perfect because it’s full of natural light.

A Sunroom Provides the Best Natural Light for an Art Studio or Craft Room

A sunroom is a unique space in your home because it allows you to enjoy the outdoors while staying protected from the elements. Many people use sunrooms for reading, growing plants and enjoying nature — much like a back porch. 

The difference is that sunrooms don’t have disruptive wind, rain and insects blowing in. If the day is cold, you can enjoy the scenery without getting chilled. If it’s warm, you can experience the sunshine in peace from the comfort of your home. 

Another benefit for creatives is that sunrooms have the best natural light for an art studio or craft room. As every artist knows, lighting makes a major difference in creating and enjoying finished projects. Many craft projects and paintings require tiny details that can be difficult to see in low light. 

Compared to other dim spaces in your home, sunrooms are flooded with bright, natural light that makes it easy to see and enjoy your projects. This lighting will help you make accurate creative choices and see every color clearly. Even on rainy days or during the winter, the light inside a sunroom will outperform every other space in your house.

Setting Up a Home Art Studio 

If you have a sunroom, this is a great spot to use if you want to paint. This space will provide the necessary light to see your artwork, and you can also take inspiration from the view you can see through the room’s expansive windows.

When coming up with painting studio ideas, you’ll want to ensure you have the right tools, such as:

  • Easel
  • Drawing table and chair
  • Shelving and bins to store supplies
  • Paint, like acrylic or oil
  • Colored pencils
  • Watercolor paper
  • Brushes
  • Paper towels
  • Palette and palette knife
  • Drawing tablet if you specialize in digital art

Regardless of your craft, it’s a good idea to have your supplies organized and accessible. If you store your art supplies in an easy-to-reach spot, you’ll be more likely to get them out and use them.  

Setting Up a Sunroom Craft Room

If you love crafting, you’ll likely need to organize your artistic supplies in several sections. You can separate materials for needlework, crocheting, painting, quilting, scrapbooking and so on by type. 

Having dedicated spaces for each type of project will make it easier to see the supplies you have to work with. It may also help you become more productive and intentional about which project you work on next.

Here are a few items you can use to set up a craft room inside your sunroom: 

  • Craft table and chair
  • Cricut
  • Sewing machine
  • Shelving and bins to store supplies
  • Ribbon
  • Scrapbook material
  • Frames
  • Die cuts
  • Fabric
  • Yarn and needles or hooks
  • Embroidery floss
  • Paint and brushes

Personalize your craft room so that supplies are easy to reach and there’s room to display finished projects. You can stay organized and motivated with a whiteboard that lists upcoming projects.
