Check out these five ideas on how to incorporate kids’ homework stations into the home. Perhaps they’ll inspire your DIY design. If you’d rather just go with a simple desk, view multiple designs from various stores here.
1. When Space is a Problem, Here’s a Practical Way to Add Kids Homework Stations
This particular design uses a bunk bed, however, the lower portion isn’t a bunk, it’s a bench and table seating area. Kids can use the area for playing games, creative artwork, or doing homework. If you’d rather not have one built, you can purchase one nearly exactly like it.
2. Create a Kids Homework Station on a Staircase Landing or Open Area
If the upstairs hallway has an unusable area but still offers enough space to turn it into something usable, consider a built-in desk system. Check this one out by Toblesky-Green Architects. Another space often forgotten is under the lower level staircase. View this example featured by Leslie Goodwin Photography.

3. A Booth that doubles as a Gaming or Homework Station
Again, open areas on landings or under staircases are ideal for built-in booths. Take a look at this gorgeous booth featured by Visbeen Architects. It’s built with storage on the sides for books and games and offers enough space to do homework or play board games.
4. Put a Homework Station in a Closet
Whether the closet is standard sized or larger, there’s a way to build a desk system. This closet desk system featured by Modern Craft Constructions is designed with the doors still on, however, many closet desk systems are completed with the doors removed.
5. A Geometric Shaped Work Station for the Kids
Take a look at this hexagon-shaped work area by Barbara Gilbert Interiors. It’s a fun way to furnish a space for a child’s play and homework area. With this shaped work station, a round area rug looks fantastic underneath. Placed in the middle of the room with seating and shelving along the perimeter makes for a unique and inviting space.
