Aluminum mini-blinds are a good choice for a basement hobby room
Nov 29 2010
A finished basement can provide plenty of space for a hobbyist to indulge their special interest, whether it's model trains, woodworking or arts and crafts.
A family crafts center can be located in a spacious basement.
According to HandyDirectory.com, one of the benefits of installing a crafts center or a layout for a train in the basement is the amount of space available. Shelving can be installed for storing supplies and tools, and a work area can be spread out.
Since basement windows are often smaller than windows at street level, a window treatment should be chosen to maximize the natural light available during the day and to provide privacy at night. Aluminum mini blinds are easy to use, affordable and can match any color scheme. They also are easy to clean and look attractive with or without overlying curtains.
Once the practical needs of the hobby room are met, comfortable seating should be available for both the hobbyist and visitors. Accessorizing can revolve around the hobby.
"Think of your hobby as the theme. Want to hang paintings on the walls? Choose pictures that represent your hobby," the website advises. "You can also display items you've completed in interesting ways and take pictures if you go to conventions or competitions to put in frames and hang in your hobby room."
