Designer Living – How to Create an Inviting Study Space for Your Child That Helps Them Be Productive


Homework is one of those things that kids and parents alike tend to dread. Obviously, kids don’t enjoy having to do the work at home, and it’s usually up to parents to stay on the kids, reminding them to get it done. Wouldn’t it be great if you could find a way to encourage them to just get their homework over and done with, without any kind of fight or protest? Sometimes it comes down to the environment and the space you’ve provided them with to do their work.

Here we’ll take a look at how you can create a study space that kids actually want to spend time in, and encourages productivity.

Pick the Perfect Location

In terms of creating the ideal study space for your child, location is everything. Obviously, it would be great if you had a separate room that could act as a study, but not everyone has that kind of extra space. If you’re low on space, a great idea is to dedicate a corner or area of a room as the study area. Try to pick a spot that doesn’t have a lot of distractions and/or noise, as you want them to be able to focus.

Remember, you can always get creative and section off a space creating a study zone in any room by using bookshelves, a privacy screen, or just the way you place the furniture.

Give Them Plenty of Light

Another thing you want to be aware of is the lighting in their study space. You want to ensure they are set up for success, and a lack of light makes it hard to see their work and can lead to eye strain. If you don’t have adequate overhead lighting, you can use floor and table lamps. These decorative floor lamps from Designer Living work well in a common space where you are aware of design, but still need something functional.

Think In Terms of Ergonomics

Ergonomics should be another top priority in the study space. Keeping their comfort in mind, as well as proper body alignment means they will be able to study for longer periods at a time without needing breaks. It’s also better for their body’s health such as their spine, neck, and shoulders.

With ergonomics, you need to pick the perfect chair and desk, and then have the computer or laptop positioned properly to avoid any sort of strain on the body. It can take a little tweaking as you try to get things “just right”.

Don’t Forget Storage

Finally, you want to be sure you provide them with a storage solution. This is where they can store any school supplies they will need while studying, notes, books, etc. When it’s contained all in one spot it allows them to be organized, which results in higher productivity.

Chase Those Homework Arguments Right Out of the House

By using these tips. you’ll be able to set up a study space for the kids that is comfortable and allows them to be productive.
