Creating a learning space your kid(s) will love


As schools are teaching virtually more often as a result of the worldwide pandemic, kids are spending much more time at a desk in house. The most ideal learning space for a child consists of a table, chair, a play mat for a soft bottom and space to store pens, paper, books and toys.

But how to create a desk corner that your kid(s) will love and feels like their own personal space?

We lined up five key tips that will help you on your way:

If it’s possible, choose a space for the desk corner that has access to natural light, as it works best for concentration and improves overall health.

While the space should be playful and inviting for your child, a comfortable and sturdy seating is key - especially if they spend a lot of time at their desk.

If your child is still small, a stool will be comfortable enough, since they generally don’t sit for too long. It’s also the perfect solution if the space is tight because stools are easy to hide under the desk.

 Use stimulating colours

Did you know younger children thrive in bright and stimulating colors? Here you’ll find a few examples:

1. As the most joyful color, yellow has a stimulating effect on memory, motivation and attention.

2. Green has a calming effect and is the most relaxing color.

3. Red is a dominant, warm color and strong stimulus. It attracts all the attention, which could be useful for not getting distracted, by toys for example. But, it’s advised to use a red with a calmer undertone, like pink or white or just as an accent, because intense red could have a negative effect.

Decorate the kids room playfully 

Make sure to create a playful space, that’s still an appropriate learning environment, but doesn’t feel like school. Decoration is an easy way to make it more playful, warm and inviting for your child, but not distracting like their favorite toys would be. There are a few ways to decorate the desk corner:

1. Hang your child’s favorite books like artwork
