An art studio is a place where an artist is free to create. No unwanted intrusion is allowed here, whether it is the annoying sound of cars passing outside, the colored light from a billboard on the neighboring building or even the presence of the loved ones. In the studio an artist needs to be able to go beyond the everyday concerns and find what is hidden deep inside her.
Many persons turn their living-rooms or their bedrooms in artist studios. But these spaces have different purposes and that is why they have disadvantages. Perhaps you wake up inspired by a dream in the middle of the night and feel the urge to let your ideas flow under the fresh impression of your dream. If your easel is in the bedroom you might really disturb your partner who is sleeping. The living-room is an area where children play, the TV is on and your cat brushes around your legs. There is no room for creativity there.
If you manage to define a limited space meant only for your art you should decorate it in a practical, yet pleasant manner. The practical side is concerned with having a large table with several drawers where you can store your materials and tools away from the reach of children, while you are not working. Make sure you have enough natural light to be able to create the exact colors you wish or to see any unwanted shadow on your sculptures.
But one of the most important things is to install tile flooring in you art studio. Although wooden floors give a warmer feeling, they are not very practical. An artist should not be constantly worried about spilling paint on the floor, about its brushes dripping or about the falling pieces of clay. With this in mind you will surely lose any connection with your muse. Some paints are very difficult to clean off wood. For that you may need to use substances or tools which can visibly damage the floor. Instead, when the floor is made of marble tiles, you can clean easily any kind of stain without destroying the design of your art studio.
