Bright, Bold and Beautiful

No matter where you fit the kids’ desk in, there are a few basic rules that you would do well to stick to. Never design a kids’ workstation that is dull and boring. Even if you are going for a minimalist theme in the remainder of the room with muted tones, ensure that this little pocket is vivacious and attractive. Studies suggest that inquisitive minds of children get pretty bored with monotony.

Design a desk space that is innovative, sports colors or a theme of their choice and is visually appealing. While the look is important, do not ever compromise on functionality. Everything must be at a height that is easily accessible to them.

Evolving with Time

Unlike in the case of home office designs for adults, desk spaces for kids need to be a lot more flexible. As your kids grow up, their workstations also need to grow along with their varying needs. This is precisely why it pays to plan well in advance. Opting for a desk in neutral tones and then using additional art to brighten up the space helps. As your kid steps into early teens you can simply strip away the art work and the colorful motifs and turn the same space into a more apt setting.
