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 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.
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.
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.
The bright colors continue on the other side of this bedroom where a long work table is perfect for art and homework projects and eye-popping electric yellow features lend attitude to the look. The overall effect is of a hip designer's atelier just right for sparking a young girl's creativity.
To open up the Parkers' living space, Chip and his team from Elbow Room took down the walls separating the kitchen and dining room from the rest of the house. Then, Chip added tons of seating to the space, making it the perfect place for relaxation or entertainment.
This work space area offers a place for the Fuchs children to do their homework on the floating desk suspended by steel cables. Before the renovation, this area was the kitchen, as seen on Fixer Upper.
A Parsons-style desk paired with stylish stools creates a space-saving and versatile option for a bedroom that functions as a sleep, lounge and homework space. This layout also leaves room for more fun seating options, such as hanging hammock chairs.
As part of the Parker home transformation in Atlanta, GA, licensed contractor Chip Wade took out a number of walls in the kitchen and living room to make an open air living area. The formal dining area is now adjacent to the great room and part of the open flow of the space. The transformation included a large kitchen island with ample storage and cooking area along with a work station that mechanically lifts for the kids to do their homework. The living area also includes a multi-use ottoman for everyone in the family-including the dog. This creates a central area for the kids to work and spend time with their parents, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.
The contemporary living space mixes sleek, comfortable furniture with streamlined pieces. The room doubles as a relaxing spot for watching TV, as well as space for doing homework. A ladder leads up to a fun loft area for playing.
A stylish, white desk with gold legs pairs with a lucite rolling chair to provide a chic space for the tween girl to work on homework. The black and white striped sofa is a great spot to relax and hangout with friends.
