Are you and your family ready for back-to-school season? If not, here’s one tip to try that will make the switch a simple one: carve out a study space in your home!
If you don’t already have a solid study spot in your home, adding one can make all the difference. From the first day on, you won’t have to worry about your child’s homework taking over their bedroom floor, crowding the kitchen counter, or getting lost somewhere along the way.
Wondering how to achieve an ideal study space in your own home? Take a look below to see some of our best tips!
Make use of existing spaces
One of the best ways to create a comfy study spot in your home? Make use of existing spaces that aren’t being utilized! A guest room that only hosts guests once or twice a year, for example, can serve as the perfect study spot, one that’s removed enough to be quiet even on the busiest of weeknights.
Another great option that you’ll find in Kargar homes like the Feri is a multipurpose den/study space. Add a comfy armchair and work desk to turn this roomy space into one that can serve as a study spot whenever it’s needed—but on the weekends, it’s just as apt as being a cozy hangout space for the whole family!
Create a homework caddy
Even if you don’t have the spare space for a designated study room, you can use tools like a homework caddy to make homework, reading and projects easy just about anywhere.
Help your child design a small container that’s packed with the essentials they need for a successful study session—depending on their age, that might mean anything from glue, crayons, etc. to a simple pack of paper, pencils and a calculator. This way, they don’t need to scramble for supplies every time they take their homework to the breakfast nook or living room couch.
Opt for subtle space dividers
There are subtle ways to divide large spaces so that they can take on double duty (as homework and snack spot, family room and study corner, etc.). You can set a space apart with color—painting the nook of your great room a unique shade, for example. You can also do so with physical barriers like curtains or moveable room partitions so that you can have an open space when you want it, and more specific areas when you don’t.
We hope that these tips help you achieve a home and study space that makes this school year the best one yet!
