As students across the country go back to school and university (either physically or virtually), it’s important to have a productive home study space.
Whether they need a quiet space to do homework, write university essays or attend online lessons, check out our top tips for creating a home study space that will help your child study better. Let’s get started!
How to Create a Great Home Study Space
Location, location, location
When it comes to a productive home study space, location is key! Choose a quiet place in the house, away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the family’s activities.
Good options include your student’s bedroom, a home office or any other quiet corner of the house where you can set up a desk that’s dedicated to school or uni work. (And VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips are a great way to spruce up your workspace without damaging the walls!)
Get rid of desk clutter
Tidy desk, tidy mind! Make sure you only keep the essentials on the surface of your desk, such as a laptop, notepad, pens and essential books. Tidy messy charger cables with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Ties to keep them neat, organised and out of the way.
Keep essential items within easy reach
While your child is studying, they’ll need easy access to their stationery. To keep these essential items within easy reach, why not fix stationery pots to the wall around your desk with VELCRO® Brand Stick On Tape?
Hang whiteboards for brainstorming
Whiteboards are great for brainstorming, taking notes and encouraging creativity. And you can hang whiteboards quickly and easily (and damage-free) with VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips.
Decorate to make the home study space your own
To encourage your child to study, it’s important for your home study space to be somewhere where they enjoy spending time. Let them make their home workspace their own by hanging lightweight pictures and posters with VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Small Squares. They peel off cleanly without damaging the walls!
