Don’t make a sterile study environment. Kids should feel drawn to their study spaces, not repelled. Put up some welcoming wallpaper and kit the desk out with kid friendly accessories that they’ll feel tempted to use. You can get that cool lamp here. | Visualizer: Dina Kuzmenko.
Position organisers for every stationery need close at hand to keep kids settled and seated. Think wall mounted pots for pens, pencils and highlighters, and mini shelves for correctors and stacks of sticky notes. | Visualizer: Colorroom.
Integrate a radiator into the desk design. It can be chilly by a window but heat vents ensure a cosy study time. Visual cues have also been used to increase the sense of warmth in the chilly room, like warm wood grain panels and a hot red table lamp. | Visualizer: Alexey Seldin & Alexei Golub.
Lighting is just as important as the desk and the chair. Providing your child with the correct lighting for their studies is vitally important to their eye health. Give your child a choice between general overhead lighting and focussed task lighting on the desk. The pictured setup has the added benefit of a soft ambient glow from strip lighting along the base of the window frame above. The soft lighting could pay gentle accompaniment to the undertaking of computer work. | Visualizer: Alexey Seldin & Alexei Golub.
Want to create something special on a budget? How about framing out a notice board in a fun shape to create zoning around a small desk. Add some string lights for extra sparkle and you’re done. | Visualizer: Anastasiia Kharuk.
It’s healthy to draw a line between the sleeping and work areas when situating a kid’s study within their bedroom. This can be done with a room divider if there’s the space, or you can use colour zoning to mark the work/rest divide. | Visualizer: Len’s Decor.
Another interesting way to draw the line – block out the view of the bed from the study! Out of sight, out of mind. By the way, you can get that cute Peacock pencil holder by designer Takeshi Sawada here! | Designer: ZOOI.
There are many beds with desk designs on the market to help shoehorn all you need into a limited bedroom space. This bed also incorporates storage drawers within the steps leading up to the bunk. | Visualizer: DA Design.
Set the scene. In lack of a view to rest up those eye muscles, create a scene with illustrated wallpaper. This light looking desk and shelving unit allows the paper to show through. The wirework desk chair is the Hay Hee chair. | Designer: ATO Studio.
Commission a transition. This kid’s desk extends straight out of a towering bookcase, before dipping to become a storage unit/window seat. A pastel green computer chair continues with the color theme. | Visualizer: Elena Zhulikova.
Make the most of limited space with bespoke furniture. Made to measure kids’ bedroom furniture can squeeze the best use out of the room. You may pay a bit more than you would for an off-the-shelf flat pack set but the results can create real wow factor. | Visualizer: Ira Harbaruk.
Play with cabinet arrangements to create your own bespoke solution. Stores like IKEA provide modular units that can be bought individually and arranged any way you’re able to imagine. Select contrasting colour finishes for a really eye-catching effect. You can even combine flat pack with bespoke furniture; these simple pink and blue storage volumes have been grouped with a row of unique wall shelves and an original desktop. | Visualizer: Nelly Prodan.
These novelty kids’ wall shelves have a touch of the Swiss cross trend about them. They’ve been used to bring colour and pattern to a plain wall. A colourful rug brightens the floor area beneath the desk chair to complement the look. | Visualizer: Johny Mrazko.
Just because it’s a work area, that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Have some fun with the items in the work zone, like going for some zany zig-zag shelving in a bold colourway. Lay down artificial grass mats to give the space a sense of the outdoors and therefore freedom. | Visualizer: Svoya Studio.
The sky’s the limit. If space is pinched beside your kid’s desk then be sure to situate storage above it, and take it all the way to the top. These wall cupboards have been given a white finish to match with the swivel chair; the box shelf has been picked out in beech wood to tie in with the floor. | Visualizer: Adilet Zulpukarov.
Make a study area feel like home. This kid’s desk is is situated within a house shaped canopy – where the roof is formed by the cut of overhead cabinets. Pink shelving either side makes the design even more darling. | Visualizer: Việt Dũng.
Bring in nature through decor and prints. This leaves wallpaper design is a maintenance free way to bring the uplifting quality of plants indoors. The raw wood grain effect of the furniture in this scheme compliments the natural look. | Visualizer: Mariya Chmut.
Make the most of unused spaces. Natural light from the window will keep them energised, so fashion a kid’s workstation around the glass. Even a narrow column of storage or shelving up either side can keep books and school supplies tidy and organised. | Visualizer: Thao Uyen.
