Set your student up for success this school year. Kids will be back in session soon, and it is essential for them to have a designated space where they live to complete homework, create projects, and diligently study.
Danielle Myers, ASID, RID, and Proprietor for Elle Designs, has created a three-step checklist when when creating these types of spaces for your kids:
“A” – Location, Location, Location
Where your living environment is quiet, free of distractions, and can accommodate a work surface for completing tasks.
“B” – Back to Basics
Think about what your child needs to have success. A workspace desk or table, task lighting, organizational containers, bookshelves, tack and wipe off board, writing utensils, computer, art supplies, and finally, inspiration.
Place encouraging phrases in frames to be used as artwork, or add a colorful banner to a wall with a word spelled out, “Believe”.
“C” – Make it Personal
Allowing the child to help create their space and add personalized touches to enhance their learning experience is ideal. Items could include photos, mementos, their school mascot or pennant, and other familiar/comforting things.
If they love their space, they are more apt to be inspired, stay focused, and enjoy their school years!
It can be as simple as “1-2-3” when tackling the design of your study space, but Elle Designs is always here should you need help!
