Unleash your creative spirit by setting up your own art studio at home.
Maximize that corner
If you’re living in a condo or you just want to have a little art space in your bedroom at home, just look for the perfect corner, where you can set up a desk, put in your paint brushes , and own this creative space! On top of this, hanging some of your paintings and artworks on that plain white wall will allow you to create more accent. You’ll be surprised on how this simple trick can spell a big difference.
If you are into digital artwork, you can also use it as your “creative workspace” where you can setup your computer. Before setting up, make sure to consider evaluating the following:
You should be comfortable with your chair but make sure you’re not slouching
Your computer screen should be at eye level and at arm’s length
Natural or artificial light, you must consider this as it will affect color lighting on your artwork and might also result in eye strain.
Clutter slows down our focus and you can avoid this by organizing your art materials
As long as you have that corner, you can be be more creative than ever.

Convert your garage to an art haven It takes a lot of space to practice your passion for art and it requires a bigger area to store your supplies and finished projects. Do you have extra space in your garage? Maximize it by setting up your own art haven!
Renovate. For those who have an open garage, you don’t want your precious artworks scattered all over the place when it rains. Protect it by renovating and converting it into a covered one.
Cleaning and decluttering. You can start by emptying your garage space. If you have a lot of things or supplies stored in it, take time to separate the things you need and the things you can dispose of. After that, you can start by cleaning every little corner of your garage. This will take a lot of time but have in mind that starting with a clear and clean space can go a long way.
Consider the lighting. If additional windows can be added on a wall, do so.
Natural light can bring happy vibes on every corner of your art haven.
Look for a storage that is convenient and safe enough to protect your finished projects.
If you’re an artist who loves painting while listening to your favorite songs, a soundproof studio can also make it more special.

Take over that attic
Creating another masterpiece looks simple but everyone knows that it requires focus and concentration. Having your own private place will surely help you with that. Among the top of mind spots that creative people are utilizing in their home is their attic. In doing so, make sure to consider the heat of the room because humidity can make your paint dry out fast.
Crosswinds Tagaytay’s Ready Home – Lucerne — has its own attic that you can actually convert into your creative studio. Aside from enjoying its exclusivity, you might also get inspired by the pine trees you can see right through the window. Here are some ideas that can inspire you to make that magic happen:
Turn your spare room into a personalized art studio
If you have that one extra room at home, use it for the love of art. It doesn’t have to be big. You just need to have a space for your desk and your imagination. Placing your desk near a window where you can have a glimpse of sunlight while doing your art will make a big difference. You can also add some indoor plants for a more refreshing relaxing vibe in the room. Not sure which type of plants to consider? Here are some of the indoor plants you might want to take care of:
The aloe vera plant is an easy, attractive succulent that makes for a great indoor companion. – www.almanac.com
Snake plants are often used as home decor as they’re pleasing to the eye, easy to care for, and require little water to survive. – www.healthline.com
One of many types of easy-care cactus, Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera x buckleyi) offers a graceful arching appearance, with long segmented stems and whorls of satiny flowers in lilac, deep rose, salmon, red-orange or white. – https://www.midwestliving.com/
Clean space means clear mind
Clean space means a clear mind and a clear mind can help you release your creativity. You can also be more creative in organizing your art materials by creating your own art storage.
Create your own paintbrush holder
Having a jar of paint brushes looks rustic, but doing your own paintbrush holder will make you look smart. You can do it by starting with a block of wood then drawing a line in every inch – vertically and horizontally, and drilling holes on every other lines. Your drill holes should have remove small and large ones to fit all of your paint brush collections. And that’s it – you now have your own paint brush storage rack!
