A Study Room Deserves Attention

Education Information

Where your kid sits and studies, has a very vital role in his/ her learning speed. As per studies, half an hours spent in the ideal environment is more beneficial than 2 or 3 hours spent in the wrong place!

Most of the parents now pay attention to the study area of their child. Here are some tips that might come handy while designing or redesigning a Study area.

1. Light:

Make sure there is enough light in the area. Both natural and artificial light sources can be used.

2. Colours of wall:

Do not paint the wall with shiny bright colours. It should be soothing  the eyes. Lighter, pleasing shades are ideal.

3. Ventilation:

Proper airflow is a must. There should be enough windows and doors.

4. Minimalistic:

Do not fill the room with  goodies. Make it a minimalistic one.

5. Noise free:

Remember that the children can concentrate better when there is less noise. Arrange their study rooms away from the disturbances of the living room or TVs.

6. Accessibility:

The study area should have easy access to spaces like toilets, kitchen etc. The child must not feel cut of from other family members.

7. Furniture:

Children grow fast. Be careful in selecting  furniture which is growth friendly. Wooden furniture is ideal.

8. Storage:

There should be enough storage space to keep the child's books and accessories.

9. Frequent cleaning:

Study area should be neat and clean all the time.

10. Positive energy:

The room should have positive energy. Placing a small indoor plant, hanging your child's role model's picture on wall, etc will help in bringing  positive energy.
