The desk is one of the most important features in your kids’ room. Hence, it also has to look like one, if your children are going to take studies seriously. It should be designed as a distinct workplace. A desk, which is interesting and has everything close at hand, will keep your children engaged in productive and creative activities.
The desk may be a standalone piece of furniture with or without drawers. If it has no drawers then you could do well to place a cabinet with the desk, maybe adjacent to it or on the wall above. You could also have wall shelves above the desk. However, it is a good idea to incorporate the desk into a comprehensive unit with a cupboard or shelves or both. In such a case the panel below the cabinet can have a board on which to pin notes, memoirs and artworks.
Many kids’ rooms have a loft bed. The space below the bed can be ideal for the study desk. If there is a bunk bed for siblings, then it is better to have separate work stations for each. If space permits, you could also have a single large-sized study table, which can not only accommodate both but also assure individual privacy. You could also have twin desks on either side of a common vertical panel. Each side would have its individual storage and shelving capabilities.
To be sure, the size of the desk will mirror the child’s age. However, your child will grow here. Hence, the desk needs to be big and versatile enough to house his or her ever growing study material and recreational knickknacks. Also, make sure the desk(s) has sufficient lighting and the chair is just the right height.
