Schools are around the corner and we are about to start a new academic year with all its challenges, but we can also have loads of fun getting it prepared. A lot of people think that creating a study space for their kids exhausts so much time, money and space, but the ASK team believes otherwise. Every kid deserves an exciting place around the house to learn and enjoy their school days; creating this space will be an invaluable gift to help them achieve their academic goals. With very simple ideas you can turn an unused space into the best study zone ever. Then with some flashy accessories, your kid will long to stay on his desk studying.
Space savers: small scale study areas
Spaces are premium and sometimes you don’t have the luxury to allocate a full room for kids’ study, but creativity is all what it takes to create a studying space. Think of a dead corner at the house, or the kids play area or inside a closet where you can place a sleek desk and chair to create an inviting studying place. Think of an unused space under a hanging bed and turn it into a study zone, not only will it serve a purpose but will add beauty to the entire room.
Another idea is to get a folding desk, which can be tucked away after the studying is over or during the academic vacations. We trust this is very efficient if the desk is not used all the year round.
Wall mounted shelves / cubbies:
One of the smart tricks to add space is to opt for vertical wall storage. Walls are no longer for decoration, frames and clocks; there are plenty of items that can be hung on the wall to create more space. Having a hung board to add the calendars, reminders and schedules is a nice visual addition to the desk as well as beneficial to the studying process. Selecting a cool study board is another way to adding flair to the study area.
You can also create a hidden book shelve over the desk to add storage space; you can have a slim cupboard which has all the books inside, once it is closed the place looks neat and decluttered. This is innovative, compact and self-contained way to store studying essentials.
Organizers: Maximize the space by minimizing the fuss
Don’t let the desk drown under a pile of papers. There are many artistic ways to ensure you add charm to the place as well as keep all your desk items in order. Any unused can, jar, container or box can create a very enticing feel to the desk as well as declutter the space, making it more appealing and wellordered. There are endless options of how you can use organizers at your desk, which can be bought or even done at home.
Proper lighting and fresh plants:
Proper lighting is one of the inevitable components of any desk; but it can also act as an additional source of glamour to the studying space. Lighting comes in so many options, colors and shapes, which make it easier for you to choose. An artificial plant beside a lamp does wonders; it looks fresh and adds life to the surface.
Opt for simple colors and thrilling accessories:
Don’t forget that your kids will eventually grow up, accordingly refrain from getting too childish and be free with the accessories, as these you can easily change by time depending on the kids’ evolving needs and tastes. You can select neutral colors and calm tones and just be bold with the accessories. Studies show that having bold colored accessories induce the creative brain juices to flow.
