Now that school has started in most parts of the country, it is time to reassess our children’s rooms and make sure that they have the right bedroom furniture that promotes the best study habits. School is vital to the success of our young generation and with more competition for their attention and time because of outside interests and activities, maximizing their study time is critically important.
Most children shirk away from doing homework and would prefer to do just about anything else except get lost in a good textbook or write a thoughtful report. With their natural inclination toward activity rather than sitting quietly for several hours the key is to make the environment for studying as comfortable and as personal as possible. The more successful you are in creating an environment that the child will enjoy being in the more successful you will be in getting your child to actually sit down and study. The more they study the better they will do, makes sense.
When including bedroom furniture, keeping a television out of the room is probably a first good start. It can be distracting and an all too tempting diversion. Establish a place that is designated as a study spot. Modern wall units can include a desk and drawers that allows for easy and convenient storage of pencils and paper. Be sure to keep any items that would normally be used within handy reach, the less reasons to get up and wander around, the better. A comfortable modern swivel chair designed with proper ergonomics will provide a fun and healthy seat for concentrating.
Lighting is the key to providing the proper light for working without straining their eyes. Be sure to include both overhead lighting as well as task lighting. The controls should be within easy reach to allow for adjustments without having to continuously stop and start.
A good bed is essential to providing a sound, restful sleep. Choose a stylish modern bed with drawers underneath to store extra blankets, pillows and perhaps a book or two. Since enjoying their bedroom is pivotal to successful studying include a leather storage ottoman nearby that can hold their backpack ready for the next morning as well as serve as an extra sitting spot or a great place for some reference books while doing a report. Look to the great function and minimal style of modern furniture design for a comfortable and fun place to form lifelong good study habits.
