Jumpstart Your Day: 4 Ideas for the Study Area
Welcome the new school year with a bright and inspiring space
It seems like yesterday when the kids were celebrating the start of summer vacation. Now, after two months of rest and family bonding, it's time for them to face another exciting school year! Create a space that's perfect for studying with these handy ideas.
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.
