Must-have items for the perfect study space

If you’re thinking about redecorating the study, whether for you or your children, we recommend taking a look at the following list. Here you’ll find all the furniture and accessories you’ll need to create the perfect work environment.

Desks

Creating the perfect study space.

The first thing you’re going to need for your study is a desk. If you need some inspiration, take a look at these super original desks. Make sure to choose a desk that’s large enough to allow you to work comfortably and efficiently.

The amount of space you’ll need will largely depend on the type of work you’ll be doing. Needless to say, the most important thing is to make sure you have a flat, smooth and stable surface to work on. We also recommend choosing a desk that includes additional storage space. This will allow you to keep everything you need close to hand when you need it.

Desk chairs

Choosing the right office chair.

This is one of the most important elements in any study space. A good chair will help you avoid bad posture and constant trips to the physio. While it’s true that some desk chairs can be a little on the expensive side, it’s always worth spending that little bit more for a good quality chair.

Try to choose an ergonomic chair that offers plenty of lumbar support. The height and back should be adjustable to ensure maximum comfort, and the chair itself should be upholstered with high quality, natural materials.

Storage space

Office storage.

When it comes to study spaces, be sure to incorporate plenty of shelves and drawers where you can keep books and other study materials. If you don’t have much space, floating shelves are a great solution, creating extra storage while saving you floor space.

We also recommend buying additional accessories that will help keep your study tidy, such as baskets, organizers, and containers. Here you’ll find some top tips for choosing the perfect office storage system.

Lighting

Lighting your study space.

Proper lighting is proven to help improve concentration and focus when reading. When it comes to ceiling lamps, we suggest using soft, white lighting. You can then complement this with a table lamp to better light up your workspace.

Ideal room temperature for your study space

Finding the ideal temperature.

Temperature is one of the most important aspects to consider when designing a study, as being too hot or too cold can have a serious impact on productivity. Getting the right temperature will help you feel more comfortable in your study space, and allow you to fully concentrate on your work.

According to experts, the ideal office temperature should be between 62 and 71.5°F, to help keep you comfortable but alert.

Color pallet

A neutral color pallet.

Avoid painting the walls in bright, eye-catching colors. If you want to avoid any distractions, go for light, neutral colors such as white, beige, salmon or yellow.

Experts also recommend soft shades of blue and green. These are great for peaceful study sessions, helping you to relax and focus.

Decor for your study space

Decorate your study space.

Finally, we suggest incorporating some small decorative elements to make you feel at home in your study space. However, it’s important not to go overboard, as too much decor can be distracting. Some photos, inspirational quotes or small ornaments are great options.

Follow all these tips, and you’ll have a study space that promotes creativity and maximum concentration.
