How To Create A Home Study Area That Will Motivate Your Kids To Learn

If we really want our kids to hunker down and do their homework, they need a great home study space to keep them motivated. We’ve had a few weeks to get used to our kids learning from home, and have realized that it’s time for a few upgrades.

We’re sharing some of our favourite home desk and decor pieces with you, to help you enhance your child’s study area, to hopefully motivate them to get their schoolwork done while they’re working at home. We’re hoping that with a few minor updates, your child will remain engaged as they adjust to this new form of at-home learning.

Try adding these decor pieces to their study area:

Mafiti Touch Desk Lamp

The kids will love how playful this lamp is, and it puts off just the right kind of light for working on math problems. Dimmable, with three different settings, a light touch for on and off, plus a flexible goose neck to suit any task, this lamp will add some colour to their work space. Just for fun, the base lights up too, and can change colour to match their room! ($20)


Adjustable Height Desk

Does your child get antsy when sitting down for long periods of time? This adjustable height desk will grow with your child, and the modern basic design will suit any decor. The size is perfect for a corner in the family room or kitchen and can easily convert to a utility table or extra counter space when you need it! ($110)
