Across the country this week students strapped on their backpacks and headed out for an exciting new year of school. But in the midst of that back-to-school glee, one word still strikes fear in both parents and students … Homework. What if there was a way to make the homework battle less stressful, dare I say enjoyable? Today I’m sharing five dread-busting homework stations with creative lighting that may actually make your student want to do homework.
A Gray Area
Loads of natural light, comfy space-age chairs and bright colors are everywhere in this contemporary-cottage homework room. The rustic exposed fixture is the perfect place for a glare-free vintage light bulb.
The Smart Nook
For the sophisticated student, this distraction-free homework station offers minimal colors, clean lines, ample storage and three bright puck lights that define each individual space.
Up, Up and Away
Bold and bright colors spark creativity in this enormous luxury homework suite designed to look like you’re floating inside of a hot air balloon. Wall mounted lamps and novelty lights add to an already bright space.
Glam Girl’s Study
OMG, this room is like, totally ah-mazing.
There’s no shortage of sparkly cheer in this bright study corner. The dazzling chandelier pendant completes the room but doesn’t emit enough light for studying, so low profile recessed lighting was used to provide light for tasks without distracting from the look and style of the space.
Kid Cave. No Parents Allowed.
(Unless of course you’re bringing me a snack or giving me the answers to my Math homework.) This desk area’s under cabinet lighting and abundant storage leaves the desktop clean and uncluttered, giving this study space an A+.
Every good homework station, whether in a luxury mansion or a repurposed coat closet, needs great lighting. Create your own homework haven with five hand-picked products inspired by today’s stylish spaces:
- Brushed Steel Priori Xenon Under Cabinet Light
- Futura Disc Low Voltage Puck Lights
- Nostalgic Smoke Antique Light Bulb
- Hyde Park Swing Arm Lamp in Oil Rubbed Bronze
