Smart + Stylish Interior Ideas For Your Homeschooling Set-Up

Are you Googling ‘homeschool room ideas?’ Homeschooling is stressful at the best of times, and to help motivate your child it’s important to create a practical study space they can learn in.

We thought we’d take a look at some fabulous homeschooling interior ideas and accessories from Great Little Trading Company for the ultimate homeschooling set up.

Choosing a desk for homeschooling

This is going to be a piece of furniture that will be around for a while, so it’s best to invest in something that will go the distance, as well as complement any existing interiors in your home. Think about where your child’s desk is going to live, how many children will need to use it, and whether you need storage options.

Hamilton Desk with Upstand

Create a classroom in your living room, or turn a corner of their bedroom into somewhere quiet to study with this super smark desk from GLTC.

The Hamilton Desk with Upstand is both stylish and practical and ideal for children aged between 5 – 12 years of age.

A far as homeschooling room ideas go, the Hamilton Desk is a solid yet simple design, that will slot seamlessly into the corner of any bedroom or living room without taking over.

There are two drawers offering plenty of storage space while the desk’s upstand keeps books and tablets upright for your child.

We think this is a fabulous choice that offers flexibility. Its compact design allows you can switch it easily from bedroom to living room if you need to.

Children’s Desk Lamp

Create a well-lit study area with this simple yet elegant children’s desk lamp.

Designed with children in mind, the lamp features an integrated LED bulb to prevent accidental fires or finger burns.

Create a reading corner

Homeschooling room ideas don’t have to be boring, and there’s much more to homeschooling for little ones than sitting at a desk.

Look at incorporating a reading corner, a learning table, and a space for play. This is especially important for younger children who will need to move from one activity to the next quite quickly.

Large Townhouse Bookcase

We think the Large Townhouse Bookcase from GLTC would make a fabulous centerpiece for any reading corner.

This beautiful bookcase offers plenty of space to keep their book and tablets organised, together with their favourite teddies, toys and gadgets.

Turn their reading corner into a relaxing, comfortable space, somewhere your children can rest,  read, and enjoy a bit of downtime.

Lay down their favourite blanket on the floor, use an easy chair or invest in one of these super-cozy bean bags. We love these options from GLTC; choose from a traditional bean bag, bean bag chair, or stool to add that all-important finishing touch.

Storage ideas for kids

A lot of us are having to homeschool our kids in the living room, where home life can easily start to feel claustrophobic. In terms of homeschooling room ideas and making them work for all of you, organisation and storage are both key.

This fantastic range of storage units, trays, caddies and desk tidies will help keep life sane, and the carpet clean. And to keep track of what’s going on in their homeschooling week, a pinboard is a must.
