How to Design Your Kids’ Study Room

Kids tend to get playful easily or lose their attention after 5 minutes or shorter while studying, if there is no particularly specific area designed especially for them.

Hence, creating a study space in any part of the house for the kids becomes not only the natural solution, but imperative for the child’s growth and learning process.

There are certain things to be kept in mind when designing such a corner dedicated to them so that they can enjoy knowledge as a part of their daily routine, not just think of it as a chore. 

With so many ideas abounding the internet, we don’t have a shortage of themes to choose for the kids’ study room. However, we also need to remember that the décor, furniture and organisation in a study room can make or break the area.

Interested in knowing more? We’ll explain how and what elements should be kept in the study room to make it more fun and appealing for the kids to study happily and take responsibility for their school work.

1. Designate a space for the study room.

The first and foremost step is figuring out where the space should be designated for a functional kids’ study. While quieter corners of your house takes priority, the best place would be your kids’ bedroom where they can get used to the study space with ease and get comfortable.

If you are a work- from- home parent, you might consider designating a space for them in your home office. This will not only help you keep an eye on them, but also give you more bonding time while you both finish your work.

Other areas may include repurposed spaces under the stairway, spare rooms, a small corner of the kitchen or living rooms, etc. Keep in mind that it should not be near their play room or where their toys are kept as they will serve as a distraction.

2. Keep a desk in your kid’s room.

Whether you have a foldable desk or a branded kids study desk, ensure it’s adequate for your kids’ heights. Place it in their bed room or the designated space for study.

Add a comfortable chair in accordance with the table’s height so you kid won’t get unbalanced and hurt their limbs while studying.

Ensure that the desk and chair and comfortable to sit and work on for longer periods of time. The kids will enjoy doing their homework or painting when they don’t have to worry about the table edges digging into their skin.

3. Ensure there is adequate natural lighting.

In a survey, it was found that kids can do their assignments better when surrounded by natural light. So, a rule of the thumb would be to check if the designated space has enough natural lighting, from a nearby open door or window.

However, not everyone can afford to have such specific spaces. Fret not. All you need to do to combat the lack of lighting situation, is to provide sufficient forms of light in the area. This prevents pressure on your precious little ones’ eyes and allows them to study better.

4. Place a table lamp on the desk.

While the lighting plays a major role in the function and décor of a study space, it would definitely add a cute element to the desk and keep your kid interested and motivated to finish their projects on their own.

Buy one in their favourite TV character kids collections so they will enjoy using it finish their work.

5. Embrace colour theory.

Colours play an interesting role in influencing our moods- no matter the age. This holds especially true for the little ones in your home, as they absorb the energy of the room unknowingly.

Use orange to boost positivity, green to increase focus, blue for calmness and red to encourage creativity in the kids’ space.

You can use accents of the colours all over the space or paint a wall or furniture in the colour you need. Make the space colourful to engage the kids but ensure it doesn’t look chaotic. Do some online kids shopping for the décor.
