Buying modular desk furniture is another choice for a homework corner. It offers good flexibility, allowing you to add components like shelves, drawers, file cabinets or computer accessory storage as needed. Just be sure to select a desk surface that’s big enough to serve your child all through school.

Adding more work surface later defeats the purpose of such a space-saving homework area. Some modular units require assembly, while others come ready-to-use from the store.

No matter what kind of desk you choose – corner unit, L-shape, straight, stand alone, ready-made, built-in, or modular – make sure it’s sturdy with no sharp or protruding edges. Look for easy-to-maintain surfaces like sealed painted wood or laminates. Common laminate desktop finishes include oak, maple, cherry and white.
