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!

Utilizing Small Spaces

Now let’s take a look at utilizing small spaces to create that perfect study area.

First of all, Jessica created a homework station for her daughter that uses minimal space.

Along with the fact that visually, it’s minimal.
