Nothing encourages you or your kids to study like a calming, stylish study spot, don’t you think? Here are our top tips to redo the study spaces in your home to encourage better productivity (or at least make you feel more productive).

Choose the perfect spot

When it comes to setting up a productive study nook, it’s all about location, location, location. If you have a spare room to use as a dedicated home office, that’s your best bet – you can set it up *exactly* how you like it and keep it organised. For your kids, this might mean assigning a corner of their bedroom and keeping it equipped with everything they need, yet free from distractions.

Or, go rogue

The jury is still out as to whether it’s better to have one single study spot or move yourself around. This is where tech like iPads and laptops come in super handy. Spend time setting up your device with everything you need to properly concentrate – this might mean a personalised planner and productivity apps that limit certain programs during study time. Then, you’re free to move around your home or local area to stimulate your thinking.

Get organising

Whether it’s your home office or your space at work, chances are, the time we’ve spent working and learning from home have left it looking a little worse for wear. From purging to the basics of Feng Shui and even colour theory, we’ve shared our thoughts on all things office organisation to get you into the decluttering spirit right here.

Style your space

Enhancing your productivity sounds like a great excuse for a shopping spree, don’t you think? Choose a few special items that make you feel calm (think essential oil diffusers or cosy textures), decide which tools you need to do your work properly (planners, stationery, etc.) and work out the furniture you’ll need to bring everything together and you’ll be well on your way. If these products don’t make you want to get to work, we don’t know what will.
