I’ve been doing this party decorations thing for a while now using my cricut. But in the beginning, you’re basically just throwing things against the wall to see what sticks! For example, in the beginning, I had no idea what the best cricut desk setup was. However, I’ve gotten more familiar with my needs, especially around my Cricut setup. And I have slowly purchased things for my cricut setup that could help me do the job more efficiently and effectively. One of those things is where and how I store my Cricut Explore Air. Therefore, I want to tell you all about the best Circut Setup for your office so that you can work on all your crafts or your small business with the most optimal cricut desk setup!

The Old Cricut Desk Setup
First, as you may know, I just LOVE my Cricut Explore Air! I personally haven’t found the need to upgrade to a Maker just yet. But with all the deals and coupons they have on their site frequently, that doesn’t mean I won’t be keeping my eye on a good deal to add to my cricut desk! 😉 So let’s talk about my cricut set up and all the cricut office decor!
When I first arranged my Cricut setup, I looked around for the best desk for cricuts. That’s when I found the Alex Ikea Drawers. Therefore, I paired them with my Large Ikea Micke desks, and it make a great cricut setup. My Cricut setup worked perfectly for a while, and still could be a great cricut setup for you if you don’t need any extra space. I, however, soon realized my cricut setup was taking up valuable desktop real estate. That space needed to be better utilized! So let me tell you how to do it in your cricut craft room.
The Best Cricut Setup For Your Office
So I went on the hunt for cricut craft room ideas and cricut desk setups. Soon, I noticed that other bloggers and DIYers use a cart for their Cricut setup. I’ll be honest. That’s just not my style. I like a clean, white craft room, where everything isn’t out in the open. Can you relate? Therefore, my cricut desk needed to be equally as neat and tidy.
Cricut Desk Ideas
I quickly found this matching small Micke Ikea Desk on Amazon. This is literally a desk that is built for a Cricut setup. I knew that this cricut desk setup would be perfect if I could just find something half the height of the desk to set my cricut on.
That’s when I found this ClosetMaid KidSpace Storage bench, which is the perfect for a cricut desk. I figured, if it didn’t work for my cricut setup, I could always put it in my daughter’s room for books, or in her playroom for other storage! It was definitely a win win for the price.
I learned very quickly that this Cricut desk is perfect. Everything fits so nicely!
What I love about the best cricut desk is that I now have more desk space above to place my laptop or whatever else. Additionally, all the 12 x 12 Cricut Cutting Mats fit perfectly inside the drawer above it! If you’re looking for some great drawer organizers that fit in the Alex drawers, these drawer organizers fit perfectly inside! I mean, if that’s not the perfect cricut desk, I don’t know what is?
If you are looking for a desk for your cricut or printer, I now use the Ikea Alex Ikea Drawers for the printer. You can read all about The Best Inkjet Printer for Heavy Cardstock Paper here. And it frees up even more space for my cutter, or anything else I want to put there.
Update: More Storage and Organization Options for Your Cricut
Now comes the ultimate craft desk setup. This is what I have always wanted, but had to spend my budget elsewhere, until now! It just so happens that this Closetmaid Cube Organizer fits right along side the ClosetMaid KidSpace Storage bench. And both of them fit perfectly under the Large Ikea Micke desks!
I have had my eye on these paper organizers FOREVER, and I finally got them! This paper organizer by Stamp-n-Storage is life changing. Why? They fit PERFECTLY inside of any Ikea cube storage unit.
Can you imagine having a whole wall of these paper organizers? If you can’t, check out this craft room that has been on my vision board and craft room Pinterest Board for years! Clearly it’s all starting to manifest!
