Crafted Spaces - Episode 10: Illuminating Creativity

Have you ever tried to craft in a dimly lit room or one without access to electrical outlets? Episode 10 focuses on how important it is to have a functional craft room based on the lighting and electricity that's available in your space.They may seem like small things, but they're very critical! A great studio won't do you much good if you can't see your projects! 

The three different types of lighting are general, accent, and task.General lighting lights up the room and makes it comfortable. You have to be able to see in your room and a way to do that is with can lighting.

Accent lighting is sort of the "special touch" in the room. It adds a dramatic effect that draws attention to certain parts of the studio.

Sometimes general lighting isn't enough for the space. That's why you need task lighting! It brings in more light so that projects have their true color, you can see what your hands are working on, and it's easier to line things up when working on your crafts.

Also, you shouldn't take your electrical outlets for granted. There's a lot of necessary thought that goes into the placement of switches and outlets to make it more convenient for you in your craft room.

Both lighting and electrical outlets are very important to your studio space. They really will help you illuminate your creativity. Don't let these things go unnoticed as you plan your new space!
