Our key tips for creating the ultimate study nook
Forget the dining room table, creating a designated study nook for your home can make a huge difference to your mindset and productivity. With so many of us working from home, it’s more important now than ever to consider creating a designated work space within your home, and you don’t need a huge footprint to do it!
Below we break down our key tips to consider when creating the ultimate study nook for your home;
When deciding where in your home to position your study nook, it is important to consider the existing architecture. The perfect spot for a simple desk and shelves may be a gap next to a built-in wardrobe or the landing of your staircase. Get the most out of your space by creating a multi-functional area that can be used for storage or to display your decor when not being used as a study.
Power & Lighting
Make sure to ensure you have adequate task lighting and power/charging outlets within your study nook. Lighting is especially important if the area does not receive a lot of natural light.
TIP: Position power points up high underneath the desktop so that cords can remain out of sight. A cable hole cut out with a cover can be fitted so that cords can be fed through.
When it comes to storage options with a small footprint, think vertically. Add shelving above or a small cabinet that can be tucked underneath the desk. Think about how you will be using this space; for example how many people will utilise it? Will a simple set of drawers do the trick or is a large filing system the key to keeping your space organised and clutter-free?
The key to keeping your study nook compact is to look for furniture pieces that aren’t too heavy or bulky. A stool is perfect for a nook that won’t be used for long periods of time as it can be stowed under the desk when not in use. If you’ll be using this space for several hours, opt for a comfy chair that takes up minimal floor space.
