A busy young mom cleverly included a crafty wrapping room to her list of must-haves when she and her husband built a new home in the Glebe. With the expertise of Potvin Kitchens & Cabinetry and 2H Interior Design, the space is stylish yet practical.

The room serves as a multifunctional storage area with ample cupboard space for holiday and seasonal décor. Counter areas, including a central island, provide a workspace for year-round crafting for the kids, as well as Mom, who takes pride in wrapping holiday and birthday gifts with pizazz!

This wrapping room is well-stocked with paper and ribbon and all the necessary tools, so there is no last-minute frantic hunt for scissors, tape and wrap before heading off to a party! Michaels and Chapters are good resources for finding fun wrapping and trimmings.

SMALL SPACE SOLUTION

If space is tight, a wrapping wall serves the same purpose, with a pegboard and hooks to hold ribbon and supplies. A simple can or bucket will hold plenty of wrapping rolls in one space. The idea is simply to have everything on hand when you need it. 

Wrapping Room Must-Haves:

Good lighting

Clutter-free counter space

Paper and ribbon rods

Shelving to house supplies

Counter-height seating
