Setting Up the Perfect Study Space for Your Child

The right set up can motivate your child to do their work and help them to remain engaged. If you have a child that’s nearing their exams and want to help them be more productive during study as well as to prepare your child for tests, you’re in the right place. We have teamed up with a senior school in Devon to share tips on setting up the perfect study space for your child.


Be Aware of Noise
Noise is one of the most distracting things. It can ruin your train of thought and disrupt your flow. To stop this from happening, opt for a room that’s the furthest away from the main part of your house. If a separate study room isn’t realistic, why not look at other measures that you can take? Noise cancelling headphones are very good and can help them with their concentration.

When filling their study room, think concentration and not comfort. While they should have some comforts like a nice chair, they shouldn’t have too many as it can make them feel lazy and want to relax as opposed to doing their work. This means that beds and gaming devices are out of the question.

Things that form the essentials are:

· A clock

· A desk

· A chair

· A lamp

· A computer

· Calendar

· Stationary

Think Colour
Colour can have a huge impact on our mood and productivity. To help your child with their studies, you will need to create an environment that motivates them. Typically, you want to avoid setting up a study space where it is dark and lacks light. Their study spot should have ample natural light and be painted in a neutral, pastel or an energetic colour like blue or yellow.

Notes can surprisingly take up a lot of space which means that the right storage is a must for staying organised. A lack of it can make the space cluttered and make it difficult for your child to find what they need when they need it.
