Home Interior Design Tips: 4 Study Area Ideas to Embrace and Execute

We have all learned a number of important lessons during the circuit breaker period. We have had to adapt to working from home, getting our kids to do their lessons at home and communicating with others remotely.  While we’re currently adapting to the situation, chances are that most don’t have optimal conditions for conducting such important activities from home.

If your flat is lacking a good study area, chances are that you’re working from the living room or kitchen. While such a solution can work for a short period of time, it’s not optimal if work from home or a part-time telecommuting approach becomes the new normal.

The time is perfect for conceptualising the home improvements you can execute in the near future.

A good study area is definitely something you should envision for your home. Do you need some ideas to get started? We have a few fun concepts you can adapt and execute as soon as the circuit breaker measures are lifted.

Make It Clean and Minimal

Numerous studies suggest that clutter is the biggest enemy of productivity. Not only that, it causes stress and it can also reduce creativity and coming up with innovative problem solving ideas.

A good study area needs to be functional rather than cluttered.

Think of the essentials required to do your job. These are the ones to emphasise.

Check out this Home Guide study area example to gain a better idea of the concept.

As you can see, the space features a desk for two people, storage and a spot for relaxation. It’s clean, it can breathe and it’s definitely not boring.

Any interior design concept should be edited after you come up with the original idea. Chances are that at least a few elements can be taken out of the equation for a more streamlined and flowing décor.

Let Nature In

Many study area designs suffer from one and the same problem – they’re too sterile. The minimalist approach mentioned above can deprive the space of personality and colour, especially when the idea isn’t executed by professionals.

To combat the eventual blandness of living room design, let as much nature in as possible.

Placing the study area close to a window will immediately open up the space and enable the working individual to enjoy the view and the natural light. Plants can also be featured because their lush green leaves will counter the neutral tones that are most commonly utilised in study area design.

Transform a Nook You’re Not Using Currently

Even if you live in a space-starved small space, you can still benefit from a fully-functional study area. Accomplishing the goal is all about proper planning and making sure the dimensions of the concept correspond to the space that you have available.

Check out these Home Guide projects that make use of limited space to put together a great little study area.

In essence, you need one desk and a storage unit for your files and work materials.

Even if you don’t have an entire room section available, you can utilise smart or foldable furniture to “pull out” the study area whenever you need it and tuck the furniture back in when you’re done. Many kinds of pieces can be custom-made to give you an optimal opportunity for making the most of small unused spaces.

Make It Reflective of Your Personality

While most study areas are clean and minimalist, you can still put together a design that’s reflective of your personality and understanding of home décor.

A study area can be futuristic, artistic, industrial or anything else you want it to be. Just let your home interior design team know what you’re looking for.

Check out this beautiful study area that carries a distinctive vibe and personality:

It combines masculine elements with some interesting furniture and a few statement accessories to add colour. While the clean lines and the functional appeal of the study area are maintained, the design is a bit more playful than what you’d typically imagine for the space. And that’s more than ok, as long as the idea serves the home owner’s needs well.

Here’s another beautiful idea that looks modern and exciting:

As you can see, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to study area creation.

You don’t have to let go of your personality or sense of aesthetics for the purpose of functionality. The two can work really well together if you know what you’re trying to accomplish, you have a clear vision and partner up with someone who can bring that vision to reality.

So, take your time to explore study area designs and pin the ones that you enjoy. Finding inspiration in projects that have already been executed can simplify the task of determining exactly what you want.
