The kids are back in school so give them a fun, new space that will make them look forward to studying and homework! Instead of giving them a small workspace in the corner of their bedroom or squeezed onto the busy kitchen counter, designate an area in a separate room where they can better concentrate… even a niche in a hallway.
The image below shows a small alcove in an upstairs hallway which Christine Haught, Ltd. Interior Design converted to a homework area for a young boy. Sleek, contemporary furniture and a color block lamp make this area inviting and cozy, without being too distracting. Artwork allows this space to feel more like a “room” and simultaneously offers educational benefits for the child.
We also took advantage of the built-in shelving next to the desk area. This was previously used for decorative accessories, but will now be used as a functional bookcase, as well as storage for school supplies. Having a defined area for schoolwork is a great way to separate “work” and “play.” Please contact us today so we can get started on your child’s Back to School space!
