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.

Without a dedicated room for a homework station, Christina created a spot for girls that they love.

Check out that fun bulletin board she created for a little inspiration.

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.

In my opinion, you can never have too much storage.

Clearly everything has a place and it looks so good!

Giving purpose to a dedicated homework station

This work space is absolutely gorgeous! 

I love the Boho vibe in this room.

Not only have Chelsea and Logan created two separate work zones, but you must see their giant pegboard wall.

It is amaaaaazing!

Similarly, this homework station has plenty of room to work.

Not to mention plenty of storage too.

This inspiration is also from the Northern Wasatch Parade of Homes.

One element I really love is all of this natural light that is flooding into this room.

How about carving out space in a bedroom.

But also the shelves provide plenty of storage for all of his supplies.

Admittedly, this is one of our favorite builds.

Ellie not only needed a homework station, but also storage for all of her art supplies.

We created this Built In Desk, upcycling a small dresser and two bookcases.
