When planning a homework space, remember these five important elements:
- Color: Wallpaper or paint a wall or the shelf openings in a bold and invigorating color.
- Furniture: A small desk with storage or a coordinating file cabinet and a comfortable chair are essential.
- Lighting: Make sure there’s plenty of ambient and task lighting.
- Organization: Include lots of organization and storage options like shelves, cork board, pegboard, cubbies, baskets, and containers to keep the space tidy and everything in its place.
- Personalization: Add some items that are personal to your child’s style, like monogrammed items, a favorite color or personal wall art.
