Although today's manufactured home rooms are more spacious than ever before, finding enough space for a homework corner could present a decorating problem. Here are a few other ideas to maximize your child's study area:
Just because a room is small does not mean you can't have a great study area for your kids. One of the best ways to get ideas is to ask children what they need or want since they are the ones using it. If you're lucky, their ideas may be easy to implement, if not, try suggesting a more workable, space-saving or economical solution that is still appealing to the youngster.
Although teen-agers need more space for studying than younger kids, a small homework corner can work well for them too. If possible, provide your teen with some privacy, room to spread out books, a source of music, and some kind of seating for a homework buddy or friend. A simple folding chair or floor pillow will serve this purpose.
If you need more help on how to set up a homework corner – ask friends how they did it, go to office supply showrooms, look over catalogs that offer desks and accessories, consult decorating magazines or the Internet for more information.Tweet
