Back to School: Create a Study Space for Your Child
Back to school means it’s time to rethink the study area. If you want to encourage your children to enjoy reading and their studies, give them a desk and chair of their very own in the bedroom. A study space that’s just their size offers them a comfortable and functional space to thrive.
Before you select a desk for their bedroom or designated study area, consider the space available to be sure the desk and accessories are the right size. Replacing an existing desk for something more functional? Measure its dimensions first to help you narrow your search to a new desk that will closely match its size.
If you’re transforming a bedroom into a combined sleep and study area, measure the space you have available, and take into account additional space for a bookcase or desk hutch for extra storage. To free up floor space, bunk beds with a built-in study area and shelving can help your kids stay organized and clutter-free.
Pair their new desk with an adjustable chair that can easily transition as they grow. Chairs with a swivel base and upholstered seat pad offer comfort and easy movement, while a swivel leather chair with decorative nail head trim ensures comfortable seating and style for a teen’s room.
A solid upright bookcase can help your kids organize their books and collectibles, and provides kid-friendly functionality. Bookcases help keep the floor uncluttered, and make a good place for kids to stash their homework and backpack after school.
For added storage space, consider adding a hutch. With shelves, dividers, and a built-in cork board, a desk hutch is the perfect way to customize your child’s desk and gives them room to display notes, photos, artwork, and more.
Light it Up
Accent your child’s study space with great lighting to help them focus on their reading and homework assignments. Lighting can help improve productivity, attention span, and accuracy. Task lighting, such as a desk or floor lamp, focuses on a specific area and illuminates the study space—this reduces eye strain and makes it easier to do homework or complete the latest school project.
