4 key tips on turning any room into a study space

June 25, 2021

As working from home becomes more popular, it is important for you to have a separate work or study space within your home. Ee you can easily design a room in your house for comfort, quiet, and focus. Having this special study space will help you keep a work/life balance. What are some key tips for turning your room into this type of space?

1. Colour

One of the main things to start your study space design with is colour. When choosing your wall furnishings, desks, and chairs, try to stick with a colour scheme that will keep your mood bright and your brain creative. Colours that are great for creativity are orange and purple. Orange is considered a mood brightener so if you get a little frustrated while working, it will help keep your spirits up. You might want to add a bright orange desk chair to your space if a wall full of orange wallpaper is a little bit too much for your taste.

Calm colours like light blue are ideal to mix with orange or purple since they give you the balance you need to stay focused on the task at hand. Purchasing a baby blue desk from your Calgary furniture store is a great design addition for your new space.

2. Lighting

When decorating your space for studying, keep in mind you want to leave the room with an open atmosphere. There is nothing worse than feeling claustrophobic in a space you are working in all day. Adding modern furniture like a funky Bohemian-inspired lampshade or hanging light will add light to your space. Bright spaces allow you to focus on your work. Check with your Calgary furniture store for the latest in lighting designs and try to look for items that provide plenty of brightness.

3. Comfort

It is so important to feel comfortable in the space you are working in. If you are relaxed, you will have an easier time working. Adding area rugs to your space softens the look of a room that is otherwise filled with hard items like desks and work chairs. Make your study space feel less stiff by adding some comfortable items. Choose from a variety of shapes and sizes in a new rug at your Calgary furniture store. The size and shape of your room will determine whether you need something round, square or rectangular.

4. Organization

Keeping your study space organized plays a huge role when working from home. If your room is cluttered, your brain becomes cluttered and you don’t want your thoughts to end up all jumbled up on paper. To keep your mind and your space clear, add some accessories like bookshelves and cabinets to the rest of the Calgary furniture in your room. You can arrange your files on your bookshelf, keeping everything neat and tidy.

Now you have the basics of what makes up a great study space. Head to your Calgary furniture store to start decorating your work area today. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can get those assignments completed.
