How to Set-Up a Hobby Room

Design tips and steps for setting-up a hobby room cost effectively

Having a hobby is something most people do at least once in their life. Be it music, sports or craftsmanship, a hobby can be a great way to reduce stress and get in some much-needed exercise. And, while there are hobbies that require you to be outdoors or spend time in designated places, there are those that you can practice yourself within the comfort of your own home. But, if you choose to take up such a hobby, your best course of action is to set-up a hobby room. So, let us go over how to do so efficiently and cost-effectively.

Choose the right room

Setting up a hobby room is not simply putting all of your hobby-related possessions into any old room. Before you start putting in your tools and equipment, you need to carefully choose which room you are going to use. This, of course, is mostly determined by your hobby. Some hobbies require very little space while others may require your whole garage. So, in order to know how much room you will need, you better get to know the ins and outs of your particular hobby.


Choose an empty room in your house, or the one that's least used,
and then figure out how to set up a hobby room that will be perfectly
suitable for your hobby activities.

Study your hobby

Start off by going online. There are numerous forums and websites for any hobbies where you can easily find tips and advice on how to practice it. Some of those pieces of advice are bound to be related to the type and size of the hobby room. Perhaps you already have experience in practicing your hobby, but it is always a good idea to find out what other people think. There is always someone with more experience and knowledge that can give you valuable advice and help you enjoy your hobby even more.

Easy clean-up

Some hobbies can be quite dirty. In fact, most are. Therefore, it is always a good idea to consider how you will clean your hobby room and your tools. A good idea is to find a room where you will have access to both water and electricity. This will make the clean-up much easier, especially if your hobby requires you to use paint. Not to mention hobbies that require constant access to water such as sculpting. Plus, easy access to electricity will make using electric cleaning tools much easier. So, when considering your hobby room, remember that you will need to plan it so that it has access to basic utilities.

Bearing in mind your preferred hobby, you have to set-up your hobby room
accordingly and make it easy to clean up afterwards.

Set-up a hobby room

Once you have made your choice the time has come to set-up your hobby room. As we mentioned before, you can always find solid tips and valuable pieces of advice by looking online. You will soon see that there are numerous ways in which you can optimize both your hobby room and the way in which you practice your hobby.

A minimalist start

It is always a good idea to have a minimalist start when you set up a hobby room. This means that you should only put up things that you are sure are necessary. Do not put anything that is an add-on, or that you do not use regularly. When you set up a hobby room, start clean. Later on, you can add extra items and make your hobby room more suited to your taste. You will probably add new tools and equipment that will make your hobby more fun and exciting. But, give yourself enough time to experience working in a minimalist setting. This will give you the opportunity to enjoy the essence of your hobby without all the add-ons.

If you are already pursuing a particular hobby, you will find it much easier to
set-up a hobby room, knowing what's needed in terms of space and setting-up.

Add gradually

Once you start adding things to your hobby room, remember to do so gradually. Do not rush everything at once without any prior thought or consideration. This is especially true if you are moving to a new place and you are carrying your hobby equipment with you. Try to implement every new aspect one step at a time. If you rush everything in you will clutter your hobby room which will, most likely, spoil your experience in it. You'll be much better off by studying sites like damovingnyc.com and learning how to pack and store your possessions for a while. The more time you take to implement every tool and piece of equipment the more time you will have to play around with it and see if it fits your style.

Design tips

There is no best way to set-up a hobby room. There are only ways that are more or less suited for your hobby and your preference. Here are some clever design tips that we feel will make any hobby more organized.

In your new hobby room, allow enought storage space for the materials
and tools or instruments that you will use in your hobby pursuit.

Color coordination makes everything easier. So, once you set up a hobby room, try to have as many color-coordinated things as possible. You can sort them by type, use and by how often you expect to use them. Feel free to experiment and see which system suits you best. Don't use permanent markers as your initial idea might be wrong.

Storing your hobby equipment in cardboard boxes is ok if you plan on storing them in a warehouse. But, if you plan on continuously taking your equipment out and putting it back, your best bet is to either use plastic or glass containers. They are much better suited for repeated use as they don't lose their quality in the same manner as cardboard.

Whatever set-up guide you end up finding, remember that there is no best one. What instead you need to do is to try to make your hobby room suit your preferences and habits. If something sounds smart but doesn't feel right when you implement it, to hell with it. Make your hobby room your own.
