The nook is transformed into an eclectic-style homework area for the kids. A gray settee and sleek white chairs pull up to a chic, contemporary table that functions as a workspace. Against the wall are tall bookshelves that features both open and closed storage for organization.
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.
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.
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.
Unfinished wood panels give texture and visual interest to this art or homework nook equipped with a built-in desk and stools. A wire hung between the walls is an easy (and flexible!) place to pin up drying artwork or favorite creations.
A loft-style bed is made with yellow sheets and can be accessed with a wood ladder. Supports for the bed are made with dressers and shelves, which are used to display and store books, photographs and toys. Beneath the bed is the perfect homework nook complete with a chair and lamp.
Once a wasted space in the form of a dated double height covered front door area, this nook is now a treasured retreat. By flooring the once open space and adding a window seat, bookcases and table, this is now a cherished spot to lounge and read a book, do homework or play a game.
Built-in benches and a small table make this space perfect for quick, informal meals or evening homework. Natural light from two large windows eliminates the need for a bulky light fixture. The benches are topped by vivid chevron-patterned cushions, which add a nice dash of color to the neutral space.
This kitchen breakfast nook with contemporary banquette seating is a comfy spot to eat or do homework. The large gathering table paired with the chic seating is the perfect combination of function and style to go with the sleek feel of the rest of the kitchen.
With a comfy banquette, two cushioned chairs and a farmhouse-style dining table, this breakfast nook has plenty of room for the whole family to gather. A large pendant light illuminates the space from overhead, just in case the owners need to convert it into a homework corner after dinner.
Instead of letting this uniquely-shaped space go to waste, the designers installed a circular banquette and matched it with a round dining table and two chairs. The result? A cozy little breakfast nook where the owners and their kids can share a meal or sit down and review homework together.
A glass table takes up less visual space than a wooden one while still providing ample room for cereal and homework. A vase of pink tulips provides a lively and welcoming contrast to the neutral decor chosen for the breakfast nook by Tiffany Brooks, Boris Eckey and Jeribai Tascoe for HGTV Star Season 8. Rustic wooden shelves make use of an empty corner and provide much-needed storage space.
A red desk with white countertop is used in a boy's bedroom for homework and snacking. A red and white checked upholstered chair is placed nearby, as is a white shelving unit that uses red and black baskets to store toys and other items.
