Create The Perfect Home Study Using These Easy Tips!

Create The Perfect Home Study Using These Easy Tips!

Do you have a spare room in your house? You do? That’s great! But, I bet you’re staring at it wondering what you can do with this extra space. Well, wonder no more! I’ve got a fantastic idea up my sleeve that’s perfect for you. You should turn your spare room into a study! Think about it, you’ll have a quiet place to work and spend some alone time - it’s brilliant.

Now, there’s every chance this already crossed your mind, but you don’t know what makes a good study. Lucky for you, I have some easy tips on how to create a study at home:

Work Desk

People have studies for all kinds of reasons. Perhaps you need a place to study for exams; maybe you work from home. No matter the reason, you’re all going to need a desk to work on. Now, the desk in your study is very important. You can’t afford to get it wrong. If you get a desk that’s too big, there may not be enough space left in the room. But, get one too small and you might not be able to work on it comfortably. Find one that’s the perfect size for your room and make sure it’s stable. You absolutely do not want your desk wobbling about as you work!


I think that the lighting in your study is more important than other rooms in the house. It can seriously help you concentrate more if the mood is set well. Think about getting dimmer switches for the ceiling lights in your study. Also, some cute modern table lamps would also be a great idea. Put these lamps on your desk and there’s more light directly on your work. So, when you’re up late working, you can see far more clearly. It’s never a good idea to have a dimly lit study. In my opinion, this creates a far too relaxed atmosphere, it just makes you want to sleep! Also, you definitely need windows in your study. Natural light is a must, or you’ll feel like you’re in prison somewhere.


The wallpaper in your study could come down to personal preference. But, as a general rule, I like to use ‘quiet’ wallpaper. Wallpaper that you don’t really notice, it doesn’t grab your attention. It’s quite rare actually, for once you don’t want spectacular wallpaper. It needs to be simple, so it’s not distracting you from your work/studying.


Another key thing to think about is the furniture. You’re 100% going to need a chair to sit on when you’re at your desk. Again, unlike in some other rooms, style isn’t your number one priority. You want a chair that’s comfortable! If you’re sat working all day, you need to be in a chair that allows you to do that without feeling sore. You can also buy cushions to place on the chair to make it even more comfortable. I wouldn’t recommend putting a bed in your study, it could end up tempting you to go to sleep.
