Well, it’s that time of year again.
Somehow the summer season has gone too quickly and it’s time to focus on the upcoming school year.
Back to school shopping and gathering school supplies are a given…
But now more than ever is the need for a homework station or dedicated room or area for study.
It’s definitely a top priority for many of us!
I believe that adding a dedicated homework space will alleviate a lot of stress in our homes.
Today we’ve teamed up with top bloggers who have created amazing homework stations in their homes.
Scroll down and see the best homework station ideas for stress free learning from top bloggers.
And get a little inspiration for your own home!
Portable Homework Station
What’s a mom to do if you just don’t have space for a dedicated homework station in your home?
Take a look at these cleaver ideas that will help your kids stay focused and organized.
Clearly, we love Christina’s idea of a mini DIYhomework station

If there’s no time to actually craft a portable homework station, then you need to see Emily’s creative idea.

Utilizing Small Spaces
Now let’s take a look at utilizing small spaces to create that perfect study area.
Oh my! Isn’t this floating desk so smart?
First of all, Jessica created a homework station for her daughter that uses minimal space.
Along with the fact that visually, it’s minimal.
Did you notice all of the storage on the wall too?

Talk about using a small space!
Take a look at this work space Karin created in a closet.

I love how Carmel at Our Fifth House took a small closet area and gave it a punch of personality with paint.
A simple desk tucked in a closet now feels so high-end!
Without a dedicated room for a homework station, Christina created a spot for her girls that they love.

Check out that fun bulletin board she created for a little inspiration.
This was the perfect budget friendly idea for this area.
Without a doubt, this homework station we spotted at the Northern Wasatch Parade of Homes caught our eye this year.
This little nook is just off the kitchen, it’s perfect for mom or dad to keep an eye on the kiddos.
And you can never have too much storage space!
In addition, the barn doors are brilliant.
A simple slide of the doors and the mess is hidden away.
