Back to School: Kids Study Spaces

Create a kids study space in an unused corner of your living or family room

For most kids, school will start in a little less than a month. The anticipation of new classes and teachers is starting to kick in, along with the excitement of being able to reconnect with friends they haven’t seen over the summer.  School supplies are being purchased.

Another reality will soon be setting in as well –– H.O.M.E.W.O.R.K.

While homework demands and space needs vary by family, most would agree that they need kids study spaces that are as versatile and functional as possible.

We’ve pulled together a few options that prove just how easy that can be to achieve.

Pretty meets function.

The Madison desk and hutch are perfect for the girl who needs modern function but still wants pretty furniture.

This soft white desk easily accommodates use of both a keyboard and iPad, and has an outlet and cord access. When the keyboard or lift lid are not needed, they fold back in for full desktop use.

Love the way this desk incorporates current technology - perfect kids study space

The matching hutch is beautifully designed and will add even more function to kids study spaces.  The shelves are perfect for keeping everything organized, while the cork board back provides a spot to hang artwork, accomplishments, and favorite photos.

For a fully coordinated look, pair it with the stylish curved-back Madison chair with upholstered seat.

(The Madison is currently available in our stores and very soon to be on our website.)

Very versatile.

As with the Madison, the Dawson’s Ridge desk handles iPad and keyboard use with ease, while still giving the option for full desktop use. It also has an outlet for charging.

A hutch (special order item) adds more function with cord access, storage doors, adjustable shelves, center shelf, and full corkboard back to keep everything organized and accessible without taking up additional floor space.

(And, of course, the Dawson’s Ridge desk chair would be a perfect seating option.)

The image below, snapped in our Plymouth showroom, shows the desk (without the hutch) and matching dresser fitting neatly under the Dawson’s Ridge Loft Bed, too – a great space saving feature for a smaller room!



Not every study space needs to be in the bedroom. Depending on space constraints, study habits, and room usage, sometimes it can be a good idea to incorporate a study area into your living space.

Small desks can help fill an unused corner or a blank wall, or be used behind a sofa instead of a sofa table. Think outside the box and decide where they will work best for your family’s needs.

Kids study spaces don't necessarily need to be in their room

It’s hard to believe we’re talking about this already, isn’t it?  Are you ready for school to start?
