Can you feel it?  Can you feel it coming?  It may not be a loud roar yet, but the proverbial train tracks are starting to vibrate a bit.  The back to school train is on its way as we move into the second half of summer vacation for quite a few kids.  Parents obviously want to do whatever they can to make sure that their children are provided with every opportunity to succeed at school.  One of the ways many parents handle this is by doing some back to school decorating that promotes good and productive work habits in the home.  If you find this idea somewhat daunting, you’re far from alone, as Decorist has helped many clients prepare for the new school year.  Below are 5 back to school decorating ideas you may want to consider.

Create a Spacious Work Space

No one likes to work in a cramped space.  It can hamper anyone’s concentration if he or she has to constantly move things around just to be able to read, write or type.  One of the first things a parent should do with regards to back to school decorating is make sure that his or her student has a set space in which to work.

Remove Clutter

Clutter creates distractions.  Whether it’s random junk that simply doesn’t have a place to go or it’s a collection of toys that your child likes to have on display, it all needs to be removed from the workspace.  Back to school decorating ideas should always make sure to include the notion that when it’s study time, it’s study time.

Proper Lighting

One of the most common mistakes people of all ages make these days is when they assume that the light given off by a computer monitor is enough light to work safely.  This is not the case, and back to school decorating ideas should always include some plan for proper lighting.  

A Comfortable Chair

Have you ever tried to work on a chair that was uncomfortable?  Did you get much done when you were constantly fidgeting and/or thinking about how uncomfortable you were at the time?  Your back to school decorating plan should include a comfortable chair or seat so your child can focus.

A Quiet Environment

No one can study efficiently if they’re in an environment where there is a lot of noise.  As such, your back to school decorating plan should involve a workspace that is somewhere so that your child will have a quiet environment free of background noise and commotion.  

Back to school decorating ideas can vary widely depending on the number of children you have, the type of home in which you live and several other factors.  However, there are some constants that apply to just about every situation, as you see above.  If you’d like to find out more about how you should handle this project, feel free to contact the team of professionals at Decorist at any time for specific answers to your questions.
