A study space to call my own

Having your own designated spot for schoolwork can be key to actually doing it. Although it isn’t always easy to find room for that corner, it is certainly possible. Here are some suggestions that are as space-saving as they are stylish.

A classroom with a view

First homework lesson: place your desk by a window. Natural reading light most of the time, energising brightness, and a fresh plant on the sill. Plus, it’s the right spot for a break every now and then while taking in the view.

Drawer units – a multitasker’s best friend

Do you have a workspace that’s used by more than one person, and for more than one activity? Simplify switching by having drawer units – and maybe some wall cabinets, too – nearby, and a single table is suddenly a family desk.

The more students, the merrier

With more than one set of homework in the family, it can be a good idea with an expanded desk area. Where siblings or friends can join in, encourage and help each other. (If seclusion is needed, simply put up a desk divider.)

Let there be proper lighting

More often than not, whether it’s pages or screens that require reading, effective studies start with good lighting. An adjustable floor lamp (or two) offers mobility, flexibility and, most importantly, less eye strain.

A study spot and crafts corner in one

When it’s homework time, it’s easy to forget that a desk is good for all kinds of activities – drawing, crafts, puzzles and more. A pegboard keeps it all accessible and in order – once the studying is finished, that is.
