Who doesn’t dream of having a room dedicated to their own hobbies, or an inspiring home office where the chaos of family life is out of sight? But the truth is that not many of us have plenty of extra rooms, so we need multifunctional spaces that can be used for both work and hobbies. That’s the case for Ingrid and her family. Ingrid’s passion is sewing and she has created a storage wall with plenty of space for her hobby. This wall took on an additional role when the pandemic put home working on the agenda.
The room has a high ceiling, but Ingrid was determined to maximise all the wall space. She stores seldom used items on the top shelves in grey boxes with lids, which keep dust out and give the shelves an organised and systematic look. The work surface is a deep shelf that provides ample space for her sewing machines. Above this, Ingrid has a board with small hooks and pots for scissors, bobbins and other small objects.
