14 Stylish and Space-Smart Kids' Homework Stations

It’s almost time for back to school, and nothing can help kids succeed more with homework than a space all of their own to study. We have a homework station at the top of the landing by my kids’ bedrooms. And it’s been great to have a designated space for them to do their homework and projects.


The thing is — you can make the space as fancy and complicated as you want, or as simple and easy as a desk. There’s something about a designated space that kids know is theirs to keep their supplies and it opens up a whole new level of creativity.


Check out these 14 great ideas to make the best of your available space — and match your decor — after the break.
