Smart and “Fun”ctional Desk and Design Options for Kids Study Spaces

Don't think this would work for our closets (I am a hanger-er, not a folder) but I love how she personalized his study space. Lots of ideas to lift!

For most kids, school has been back in session for a little over a week now. The anxiety of new schools, anticipation of new classes and teachers, and excitement of reconnecting with friends has faded and the reality of the task at hand is setting in. H.O.M.E.W.O.R.K.

While homework demands and space needs vary by family, most would agree that they need a study space to have as much versatility and function as possible.  We think that these options prove that this is achievable, and without taking up a huge amount of dedicated space!


Coming in at number one in the “fun”ctional category, is this vintage industrial study space!  It features the white school table with it’s sturdy metal legs and a distressed industrial look – perfect for school work and projects.

This option is so versatile it could really be used in any room of the house.   For example, the school table and chairs would work great in a family room to double as a place to eat snacks and play games when they’re not being used for study.  The bookshelves could serve dual purpose to house school books as well as accessories, or a snack station.

This desk and hutch definitely has a whole lot of function packed into one place!  Designed for the modern student, the desk easily accomodates use of both 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.

The hutch has a cork board back, cord access and 2-shelf storage. It’s perfect for keeping everything organized while still allowing space to hang artwork, accomplishments, and favorite photos.   For a fully coordinated look, pair it with the stylish curved-back Madison chair with upholstered seat.

As with the Madison, this desk handles iPad and keyboard use with ease, while still giving the option for full desktop use. It also has an outlet for charging. The Hutch adds more function with it’s cord access, storage doors, adjustable shelves, center shelf, and full corkboard back to keep everything organized and accessible without taking up additional floor space.

The image on the right shows the desk without the hutch fitting perfectly under the Dawson’s Ridge Loft Bed – a great space saving feature for a smaller room!
