Creating a Creative Space

Creative ideas can occur at any time, no matter where we are or what we are doing. But do you have a 'space', a 'place', a 'spot' where you can endeavor to implement those ideas? This can apply to artists, writers, thinkers or anyone of us that needs a place to call a destination.

A place where the idea can become a reality?

Some things to think about when looking for the creation of that creative space in no particular order:

1) Privacy - What do you need? A private space, walls, a shared room what works best for you/

2) Tools - What tools or equipment might you need? Chair(s), table, supplies, storage etc.

3) Size - How much space do you realistically need for your stuff?

4) Views - Windows versus walls? Would a view of the outside be inspiring or distracting?

5) Light - Do you prefer natural or artificial light? Does it matter? Northern light?

6) Sounds - What do you prefer extreme quiet, white noise, music, outside noise?

Think about these things to start and I am sure they will lead to other questions to make your creative space that place that allows you to shine.
