To make this little boy's work space extra personal, designers had him work on paper crafts that they hung in the homework area above his desk. They also ordered coloring books, pencils, crayons and art supplies for the desk so that it was ready to use once the renovation was complete.
The home's black-and-white color palette continues into the kids' room. Here, a light wood desk with two yellow chairs gives the kiddos a spot to finish homework, while a swinging chair makes for a fun reading corner.
This boy's bedroom, once a bland, cluttered space, received a stylish baseball-themed makeover. A pair of 3-inch panels that had once been attached to the closet were replaced with Cascade Coil Drapery panels, which gave the room addition space for homework desk and shelves. For extra storage, a wooden dresser was built into the closet.
The walls of this boy's bedroom gradate from darkest to lightest on the top by the ceiling to create the illusion of height. A traditional desk provides a place to do homework while a dramatic star-shaped chandelier illuminates the space.
The homework nook in this contemporary kid's playroom features hand-drawn wallpaper and a red vintage chair. The built-in shelving in the desk is stocked with vintage toy cars that add a playful touch.
This inspiring kid space gets its punch from brightly colored accents, like a modern, kid-friendly filing cabinet with bold yellow drawers. Built-in bookshelves make clever use of the room's sharp angles. Eskayel wallpaper adorns a fun accent wall, while an acrylic desk chair seems to float in the space.
Each of the two homework nook's floating desks were configured with enough depth to accommodate books and games as well as laptop and desktop computers once the boys are old enough to use them for school. Instead of pairing the desks with themed children's chairs, midcentury-modern Bertoia chairs were added.
Think outside the box when creating a workspace that needs to accommodate more than one person. In this shared boys’ bedroom, a Parsons-style desk allows multiple seats to be stored underneath. The working wall affords kids a low-commitment way to tape artwork and mementos right at their eye level. Gold garden stools provide versatile seating options that can accommodate group study sessions.
In its original state, the inset areas around the dormers were a waste of space. To give these areas a true purpose, they were transformed into two separate homework nooks complete with custom floating desks. To create the custom desks, first 2X4 lumber and paint-grade plywood were both cut to size, mitered, attached with a nail gun, then sanded and painted.
This transitional teen girl's bedroom features a white built-in desk and shelf, creating the perfect space for sitting down to complete homework. A white chair adds a modern touch, while blue geometric print wallpaper completes the look of the room.
