Don't skimp on storage

Given the numerous books, notebooks, and school supplies that your kids will use this year, having enough storage is important. Save on space by opting for wall-mounted open shelves. This will give you tons of compartments that you can allot for their different things.

RL Tip: Create an instant study station! If you have a small space to work with, you may opt to have a long slim table where your kids can do all of the school work. Add comfortable chairs and proper lighting fixtures, too.

Maximize natural light

Give the kids a calming view that will surely ease their minds and banish stress. If you have a huge window at home, you may choose to place their study table near it. Place a shelf nearby and you may also add an interesting note board for school reminders and important schedules.

Decorate it with things they love

Motivate your kids by decorating their study space with things that inspire them. Do they love photographs? You can spruce up the space with fun photos and prints. 

What do they collect? If they're into toys, you may also display some of their favorites! Click here for tips.

Add a refreshing touch

If you only have a corner of a room to transform into a study area, make it work by having a console table with drawers, a comfortable chair, a lamp, and a corkboard that you can lean against the wall. The space maybe small but you can make it cozy and conducive to learning.
