Fun and functional homework space

Making your child’s room a place that inspire their creativity and play is very important to their development and growth.

Kids want to learn in every possible way they can, here are some kid’s workspace ideas and main points to consider when designing a room that will help inspire them to commit to those homework’s, even the ones we have trouble helping them with.

1.Location

Think about where you going to set up a working space, consider how your kids focus best, if they get distracted easily, perhaps a quite spot could become the new study area.

2. Get creative

When designing your children’s bedroom, colourful and personalised elements can be easily missed out on in favour of functionality, Think about what your child’s passions are. Personalise their space making it sparks with creativity.

3.The ideal desk and chair

Children are most definitely faster and springier than we are, however ergonomics are extremely important to their growing bodies. Make sure you pick the right desk and chair to provide a comfortable space. To determine the perfect height of the chair your child’s feet are supposed to be flat on the floor while sitting, with knees at 90 degrees angle.

Check out our favourite children’s furniture brand – Nidi for desks and chairs available in different modularity and colours.

4.Storage          

Keep the clutter to a minimum! It is a lot harder to concentrate when kid’s workspace is strew with unnecessary objects. Keep it to a minimum and use storage options to leave the desk tidy and organised.

The more storage that you can get into children’s room, the less it creeps into the rest of your home. We can advise you on best storage options to fit in your space, from shelves and wall units, chest of drawers to sideboards.

Home office furniture

Decorating a home office: Finding the perfect balance

Given the nature of our increasingly connected, digital world, more people than ever are working from home. Here’s an interesting fact, at the start of 2014, 13.9% of the workforce in the UK was working from their own homes. That’s 4.2 million people, and 4.2 million individual work spaces which need to be found, arranged and maintained.

It’s hardly surprising that the quest to create the perfect home office space is one that puzzles a great many people. It’s a problem with psychological implications as well as functional and aesthetic ones. You need a space which is both distinctly yours, but separate enough from the rest of your home to put you in the right productive frame of mind. Choosing the right home office furniture is a great start.

Broadly speaking, you’re going to be making the choice between one of two types of home office space. A smaller space set aside in a corner of an existing room or using one of the less spacious nooks of the home, or a whole room dedicated to being an office.

The right chair for your stylish home office

In either case, the first thing to consider is the chair you’re sitting on. Both figuratively and literally, this is the foundation of a comfortable office space. You’ll be getting closely acquainted with this piece of home office furniture and you need something with a deep seat, good arm support and a comfortable feel.

In this, our modern swivel leather office chair is a great choice and comes in a range of rich colours to match your space. Depending on the type of desk you’re working on you might need something a little more stripped back, such as Calligaris’ New York office swivel chair.

Get the perfect storage

In the case of the micro-home office, it’s about maximising the available space, keeping everything in its place while still allowing yourself the elbow room to be creative. Pieces like the Trailer office cabinet from Calligaris are discreet, adaptable and mobile for if you decide to rearrange your space. For smaller stacks of files, something like Cattelan Italia’s Jerry magazine rack is a convenient solution.

What’s the best desk for your home office?

For those with a full room to dedicate to their office space, you can really go to town with the best of contemporary Italian office furniture. This desk from Novamobili could lend an artistic feel to your home office, or maybe Cattelan Italia’s Houston desk is what you’re looking for to lend your space that sense of luxury and grandeur.

All Belvisi furniture is custom-built to order by our trusted Italian suppliers. Whatever the space you’re working with, contact us and we’ll be able to discuss creating the perfect modern office furniture for your home.

How to light your home office

Something that often goes unconsidered here is lighting. When you’re working from home, where you’re more often concerned with setting a relaxing mood, you can lose sight of the fact that ample lighting doesn’t just help productivity. Eight hours each day spent concentrating on work means you need a well-lit office for the sake of your eyes.

Whether in a micro-office or a full room, a series of well-placed wall lights like the Fold light from Foscarini or the Folio wall light are expressive, effective and work great in well-spaced combinations. In the case of the Folio, it can work just as well on the ceiling to make sure your workload gets properly illuminated.

Decorating your home office can be tricky. Finding the balance between a beautiful home and an inspiring, productive work space isn’t straightforward, and we’re happy to help our customers find the right combinations. If you want a chat about how the full Belvisi interior design service can help you create the perfect office, contact us on 01223 327463 or visit our showroom in the heart of Cambridge.

Modern Children’s Furniture: Desk & Bookshelves

modern-desks

Every children needs his personal own space, a place. When I was young I loved spending time in my room at my desk, for me it was a place to hide, relax, to work on my drawings, read, and of course do my homework. It was quiet and away from the  the rest of the busy house. A desk is where you can do all your important “kid business.”

You can have a built in desk with a bookcase, a desk for two to share or even a desk that will hide away when not in use.
