Study Space for Teenagers
Blow It vs Budget
Lisa Riddoch shows us how to create an organised and fun
work space for our revising teenagers.
For this issue I’ve focused on designing a teen workspace. At this age there is a lot of work that needs to be done at home, so it goes without saying that teenagers need a purposeful work area. It doesn’t have to be in their bedroom either, for example if you have a quiet corner in the dining room maybe this would suit you better.
It’s always a great idea to get your teens involved in the design and let them have fun personalising their workspace. I’ve put together a scandi design for a teenage girl who’s inspired by travel as you can see in the artwork. I have kept the furniture neutral and added colour with artwork and accessories, you could easily change the colour scheme and personalise your teens desk space by changing the artwork and picking out a few accessories that colour coordinate.
The accessory that got me really excited is the wall planner. It’s designed specifically for the academic year and not only is it a great wall feature, it’s also super useful. My kids are too young for this now but I would use it to help plan and organise their time and so I’m kept in the loop too! The budget option is a digital download so you can either print it at home or in the past I’ve emailed the file to the printers, of course if it’s easier go with the blow it option and have the planner sent to you.
Have fun designing!
