The Versatility of Scrapbook Rooms

Rooms of any size can be turned into a scrapbooking room; it does not need to be a large space because there are so many ways to make the most of the available area. A scrapbook area will generally be renovated many times during the life of the scrapper, and recycling versatile objects for storage will add the personal touch to the room that nearly everyone wants.

Having a table lamp that unfolds and can be angled will make the room brighter and provide a spotlight on works in progress. A handy rotating container or a decorated flower pot easily holds frequently used tools such as pens, pencils, and glue sticks. The twirling card stands habitually used in retail stores can often be found and used to store handmade cards.

An old worktop can be salvaged and bolted to the wall and the floor to provide a sturdy table. Tables can be set up in an L-shape, take up an entire wall or be placed in the center of the scrapbook rooms. A chair with wheels on it can be maneuvered in front of any section making everything easily available.

Stamps can be stored in compact disc cases, efficiently arranged on a disc tower, and numbered to correspond to pages in a notebook that catalogs each collection. Stamps can also be placed in clear plastic sleeves like baseball card holders, and kept in binders that can be flipped through at leisure.

Most prebuilt cabinets and bookshelves are not deep enough to hold many standard scrapbooks; often a relative with wood working skills or a local cabinet builder can be persuaded to assemble a cupboard to the required measurements. Even when there is room enough for only one person, having everything within reach and conveniently organized will increase the enjoyment of anyone.
