Hardworking Home Study Spaces

Article by Rachel Homer

Whether you home educate your child permanently or are home schooling for a shorter period, creating a personal and inviting space will not only motivate your little one’s productivity and inspiration, it will keep your home looking good and in order too. From dedicated home school rooms to DIY desks bursting with creativity, check out these ridiculously cool home school ideas that score top marks.


Slide 10 of 28: An architect has the expertise to incorporate practical and stylish living solutions for the whole family that you may not have considered. MATT Architecture created this playful basement which includes three streamlined study spaces with colorful internal lighting for each sibling. The closet doors act as clever partitions between desks so there are no distractions!

Slide 11 of 28: A sturdy window ledge can make an efficient and space-saving homework desk in open-plan living rooms. The window offers plenty of natural light and a pretty view is always good for the soul. Here, @heatheryounguk has installed an overlapping shelf on the existing windowsill for her twins to work on. Calming houseplants are hung from above to zone each study space. Stokke Tripp Trapp chairs inject a touch of color, are supportive of young backs and create funky 'bistro' hot-desk style.


Slide 12 of 28: Every home school setup needs a noticeboard, but how about a whole feature memo wall? For something a little different mount cork roll or tiles to the wall and cut in a diagonal finish. The geometric effect will look original and can be filled with artwork and educational aids that won't mark the existing wall behind.

Slide 5 of 28: As well as a school desk why not add a sensory table too? Choose a subject and then work together to make 3D models, tactile mobiles and colorful artwork. Children will enjoy investigating and retaining the information. Change the display with a different subject monthly or termly to keep creative juices and interest flowing. We love this 'moon studies' area by @wilkinsonnest.
