We don’t have much space in our apartment, but I have the privilege of being able to take up a whole room for my nefarious creative activities. Working anti-clockwise: one corner is filled with my computer and desk, with printer and scanner; a filing cabinet is tucked next to the door; right beside that is my sewing cabinet; and the last corner has my other work table. I divide my time mostly between the computer and the other table, and it has a few purposes.
This is how it looks by default. I use a slanted drawing board to help with my RSI, but if I’m doing general crafts or Gocco printing I remove it and put it under my desk so I can use the whole desk to cut, paste, print and assemble.
We spend so much time working (especially if we love what we do) that it seems silly not to indulge ourselves in a fantastic space! Unfortunately being a renter we don’t really get to have a say in the wall colour or anything really that involves putting holes in the walls. Ideally I’d have a room with lots of natural light and ventilation, bogloads of storage space and shelves, and big wide desks!
Do you have any requirements for your dream work area? I’d love to hear them.
