An uncluttered desk and plenty of storage create a focused atmosphere The beginning of a new school year may bring smiles to parents’ faces, but also presents a good opportunity to do a quick makeover of a child’s room in order to foster better study habits. Having a dedicated, organised space for homework, reading or even craft projects can help students of any age focus better. But it doesn’t have to be an expensive or extremely disruptive project. Maura Braun believes that a messy desk prevents the mind from feeling at ease. The eyes travel straight to the mess and the mind feels defeated from the start. Cleaning out the clutter and organising the workspace can put the mind at rest, allowing it to tackle the task at hand.
Here are three simple things that can be done to accomplish an efficient workspace:

1. Get rid of the small desk. Most student desks provide little in the way of open space. Building a “custom” desk by repurposing a couple of two-drawer filing cabinets and an inexpensive piece of laminate countertop (or even a hollow core door) can give a large open space for homework or other projects. The cabinets provide plenty of space for folders and papers. Small boxes can further organise the drawers. Using two inexpensive nightstands and a smaller chair will create the perfect space for the younger set. As they grow, the nightstands can be changed out for the filing cabinets.

2. Add a magnetic and/or cork bulletin board above the desk. Having a place to post notes, assignments photos and awards can take a lot of clutter off the desk and help keep things organised.

3. Hang a sturdy hook or shelf next to the desk for backpacks. Encouraging children to put their backpacks next to their desks (instead of on the foyer floor) not only helps them organise themselves for homework, but will keep the living space of the home much tidier.

Finally, make sure the area is well-lit with the appropriate task lighting. Once the components are in place, the child can accessorise the space with desk accessories at your local container store or home goods store. Allowing them to add a little of their personality to the space will go a long way towards making the space both functional and appealing to any student.
