Creating a Study Space for At-Home Schooling
School is starting up again, but is your home ready? With all new changes to our day-to-day lives this year, perhaps the most intense change has been the transition to homeschooling for many families across the country. If you haven’t set yourself up for success, the school year can become very stressful very quickly.
In today’s blog from Boomtown Furniture, Appliance, and Mattress in Jacksonville, we’ll give you some tips on how to create a perfect study space for your new students — your kids! If you’re adjusting to home-schooling life, keep reading to find out how you can make this transition as easy as possible — not only for you, but for your kids as well.
Designate a Study Space
If you haven’t already, it’s time to choose which room of your home will become the study room, office, or makeshift classroom. Keep an open mind while you’re getting set up — this room doesn’t haven’t to look like a classroom! As long as they have ample space to do their homework, watch any online classes, and focus in a quieter environment, you should be good to go. The last thing you want is for your kids to try and focus on homework while sitting on the living room sofa in front of the television. Give them a space that promotes creativity and focus so they can’t get their work done without a lot of distractions.
Find the Best Work Surfaces
If each of your children works best with their own desk, you can shop for individual desks at Boomtown Furniture, Appliance, and Mattress. We have a great selection to choose from. Maybe, however, you prefer your kids to work together on one large table. If that’s the case, you can purchase a new table from us as well. Find what works best for your kids and for your space so that they’ll have plenty of room to get their work done efficiently. Stop by our Jacksonville furniture store or visit us online to check out your options.
You may not want to spend a lot of time decorating your new schooling/studying space, but chances are that if your kids are in a room that feels clean and comfortable, they will be able to get more work done. Lighting is especially important when it comes to studying. The lighting fixtures that we offer at Boomtown Furniture can help your kids stay focused and awake. You can also make sure that they have some inspiration on the walls and around the room with motivational posters, tables and charts, and more.
Organize Your Materials and Supplies
Keeping your study room stocked and organized with essentials like paper, pens, pencils, and notebooks will help you immensely along your homeschooling journey. Your children should be able to find everything they need with ease when they are ready to hunker down and do their homework. Grab some plastic drawers, shelving units, or whatever else you feel you need in order for them to be their most productive.
