Every parent wants to provide all they can to make their children’s lives comfortable and easy. Whether studying in a quiet corner or sleeping after a hard day at school, comfort improves productivity and keeps them well-rested throughout the day. Children should have everything from good lighting to storage space & good ventilation to comfortable seating space to be able to function well and meet the demands of their day.
Listed below are a few things that you can consider for your children today:
● Extra and customized storage space
● Comfortable and moveable seating space
● Good lighting throughout the day
● Good ventilation and recess area
Extra and customized storage space
Books, magazines, and worksheets usually fill most of the storage space a child’s study provides. This leaves them with less or no space to store novels, comics, and other literature they enjoy reading. If you have a small child, you can always use more storage space to house all their toys, board games and more.
Comfortable and moveable seating space
Children only sometimes enjoy studying on conventional study tables and chairs. They like moving around and sitting in different seating areas in their room. You can use creative options such as a moveable bookshelf with a seat, carpets and rugs, and bean bags to provide comfortable seating space for your children.
Good lighting throughout the day
Children are more active, attentive and they learn better when there is good lighting in the room. However, they are more stimulated by creative lighting options such as pendant lights, architectural lights, recessed lights, track lights and portable lights. Every lighting option should be bright and help the kid do all the tasks throughout the day.
Good ventilation and recess area
A study in your children’s room is not just used to study. Rather, it is used as a platform to eat, sleep, watch movies, shows, and music videos and to create, edit or shoot their creative endeavors. Hence the room needs to have enough ventilation and natural lighting.
More than aesthetics, comfort and durability are two points you should consider while designing your children’s study. You can go out of the box with colours and design styles. However, don’t spend too much time creating masterpieces, as they grow bored of the colour and the material used.
Next, you need to consider the size of the chairs and tables. You can reuse furniture for other purposes once they have outgrown it.
Once you consider all these points, you can successfully design a good and comfortable study for your children. You can always add to our list by commenting, if we missed anything important.
