Long gone are the days when you can simply throw some stuff together in a room to create a children’s bedroom. Today both designers and parents taking incredible amount of care when it comes to the designing of kids’ rooms. It is a personal space that reflects your kid’s tastes, choices and his interests. While colorful themes and elaborate wall murals do help bring in a sense of playfulness, at the end of the day kids’ rooms need to be a fusion of aesthetics and ergonomics.

Maximize Space with Minimum Fuss
When it comes to most contemporary apartments and houses, space is an absolute premium. Putting in a separate work station for kids might sound like a task that demands plenty of space and time. Yet, with a bit of creativity and some smart planning, you can turn a forgotten corner of your home into a desk space with ease. There are many desk designs that are currently available in the market which simply disappear into the wall or can be tucked away when not in use.

If you already have a playroom for your kids, the task of adding some desk space becomes all the more easier. From open closets that can be turned into workstations to small nooks in the living room or lounge that offer the necessary space, there are plenty of places which can be turned into desk space for kids.

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.
