You need to have space

If you want to create a home studio, it has to leave your imagination and be created somewhere – ideally at your home or on a vacation property. For that, you need to have available space. However, not all artists are lucky to have enough space for creating. But only if you are out of creativity. There certainly is space if you try hard enough. You can move some of the items you don’t need into another room. Turn the attic into an art studio. There are endless possibilities. You just have to think outside of the box.

Maybe it would be smart to get some items that can save space. For example, you can install a fold-down table that you can hide away when you aren’t using it. There are many more items you can use to create space out of nothing. Sell some of your useless stuff and buy things you need for your art. Be creative!

You have to have your art supplies

When you are designing a home art studio, you need to have good lighting.

If you have access to direct sunlight – great! If you don’t, see if you can create one. However, if you can’t, consider moving your studio to a different room. If that doesn’t help, make sure to get good lighting. Good lighting is necessary for a visual artist. That isn’t the case only if you consider yourself to be a metamodernist artist. Even then, good lighting is good lighting.
