Colours, decoration, furniture, in this blog we explain the key elements to creating a functional and personalised study room.
Elementary school, high school, college… whatever stage of their studies the students of the house are in, they need a study that takes their needs into account.
The decoration, order and furniture present in a room are essential for creating an atmosphere of study and concentration. As we have mentioned in previous posts, it is essential to have a tidy house, with spaces adapted to the different lifestyles and requirements of the people who are going to use them.
Today not only are we going to help you create a nice room for the study, but we are also going to give you the best advice for making a space that can be used to the full, creating an atmosphere of concentration and harmony.
Begin by using neutral colours, not only as regards the paint on the walls but also the rugs, curtains, furniture, etc. Neutral shades help to maintain concentration, creating a more relaxed and peaceful atmosphere and providing brightness to the room.
The colours that are used most in a study room are pastel shades, cream, white and grey. Their softness and contrasts provide serenity and calm to a room, and although white is the colour of peace and light, if you want to go further, then using clear versions of your favourite colours or making grey the main colour of the decoration will help you to create a personalised space.
If there is anything you can’t do without in a study room that’s the desk. Making summaries, reading, writing, drawing diagrams, everything happens on a study desk. It must have a large top on which to put all the necessary items such as books and a computer. Drawers or enough space for shelves and dividers to keep all the material organised are a plus.
The seat is a feature that is inseparable from the desk. It should be comfortable, allow for an ergonomic posture and help the back to maintain good posture.
As regards the rest of the furniture, if the study is separate from the bedroom, it will be easy to find the necessary furniture.
Decoration is okay but only if it is tidy. Decorative objects can easily distract the student, but if they do not interfere in the study areas, we can include them to facilitate order and a feeling of well-being and create a personalised room that is pleasant to spend time in.
Another tip is if you want to include pictures, photos or souvenirs keep them away from the desk, thereby avoiding extra distractions.
The commonest piece of advice regarding the lighting in a study is that the sunlight should enter from the left. In addition to being a universal truth, this often determines the distribution of the rooms, and although it is essential to take it into account to avoid undesired shadows and back-lighting, it is important to remember that when you use a screen the sunlight should be perpendicular to this and never behind it. Sitting far from the window when using screens helps to avoid glare, so when organising the distribution of the furniture and the lighting, it is important to know what you are going to use the most to study- books, a computer or a tablet – and arrange the distribution accordingly.
Knowing how to organise each element, such as the furniture, the light and the lighting according to the available space will help you to create a personalised and optimised space for you and yours.
