Gift Wrapped Spaces

Wednesday, August 21, 2013
gift wrapping counterIf the saying that it's “better to give than to receive” is true, then having a dedicated space in your home that allows you to wrap gifts easily becomes a “must have” item because face it, we all know you're a “giver”!

So what sort of function is a must have in this space? Here are some great things to consider:

gift wrap kitchen cabinetHorizontal Surface Counter Top – you need a place to actually do your wrapping. So, make sure you incorporate counter top surface at a comfortable height that allows you to lay out a large piece of wrapping paper and spin your boxes around while your taping and attaching ribbons. And be sure you can comfortably stand in front of this space. An overhang on the counter top is helpful in this situation as is open storage below so you don't have to move out of the way to open drawers.

Wrapping Paper Rolls – these work well with one of two options. Either standing up in a drawer that is deep enough to keep them from falling over OR on a dowel or rod of some sort that allows you to  just pull the paper, tear the right size and wrap.

Ribbons – ribbon is really easy to access if you are able to have it on some kind of small dowel rod so you can easily pull the length you need. You just need to be sure that your rod is not bigger than the traditionally smaller hole sizes at the center of any spool of ribbon.

There are also some additional interesting ideas for ribbon storage that you can DIY. Consider plastic baskets with holes that allow you to pull ribbon through the holes for access.  These photos can inspire some ideas of your own. We found them on Houzz, a really fun website dedicated to design and home improvement.

gift bag storage spaceBags and Bows – storing and accessing these is a slightly different approach. Drawers can work well for bows. Built-in vertical slots that allow you to “stuff” the bags is a great option, as is this mini shelf shown in the photo. 


stylish craft storage roomScissors, Tape and Other Tools – we like the idea of having some kind of peg board o in the wall or side of a cabinet that allows you to grab what you need, use it and hang it right back up in it's place. If that's not an option for your space, then baskets to corral things are also great because they can be easily moved around while you're working and then stashed back in their permanent location.

If any of these projects inspire you to become a more organized “giver” - then give us a call to set up a consultation to see how we can help.
