A study room is a room specifically arranged and reserved for study purposes. To meet this objective, people usually try to make it as conducive to study as possible. Here, we will give you some amazing ideas on how you can organize and set up your study room. Moreover, we will discuss the essentials that you must add to your study room.
We will discuss how you can make your room more lively, more appealing; a room that will emit positive vibes.
However, before setting up the room, make sure that the room/place you are going to pick up to make your study, has these specific features.
Your Study Room Should Have These Features
Following are a few essentials that your study should have.
Your Study Room should be Noise-free
While selecting a room to make your study, make sure it is noise-free and sound-proof. Any kind of sound or noise coming from the outside will definitely disturb and distract you, no matter how beautifully you have arranged your study.
Select your room that is away from the living area of the house. Find some corner of the house that your house members do not very often visit. Furthermore, make sure there will be no noise coming from the outside through the windows.
A serene and quiet room will serve your purpose in the best way.
It should be Spacious
Your study room must have ample space where you can move freely. Make sure it would be spacious even after you arrange all your necessary things in it.
Having a congested or stuffed room with scattered things around will have psychologically adverse impacts on you. In such a room, you would always be in a hurry to leave. You would feel locked up like a prisoner waiting for the time when you will be released.
Make sure that your study room is airy
There should be proper ventilation in the room. Fresh air crossing your room will keep you fresh and alert. Ultimately, it would boost your performance at work.
It should be Well-Lighted
Your study room should be well-lit. There should be sufficient natural light/sunlight during the daytime. Also, you should arrange white soft, and bright light bulbs that you would use at night to study in your room.
Your room must have Window(s)
Last but not least, windows are a must for any room. Window(s) will make your study room airy as well as well-lit. Moreover, windows naturally make the rooms look big as well as more spacious.
Hence, you should never pick a windowless room for your study.
Having discussed the essentials that your study room must have; let us now discuss how you would arrange it.
We will tell you some compulsory things that you must add to the room.
Tips To Arrange and Organize Your Study Room
Following are a few things that you must have in your study room.
A study table and a chair are compulsory
The first and foremost things that you must have in your study are, of course, a study table and chair. It will be where you will do all your work.
So, your chair should be comfortable. Also, the table must be of a perfect height to match the size of the chair, so that you can work or write comfortably.
Also, keep your table well organized. There must be a study lamp, pen holder, and enough vacant space on your table. Avoid scattering papers and books on the table. A messy place with scattered things will keep your mind and thoughts messy and scattered.
Keep only one chair for you. Do not add more chairs to your room. With additional chairs in the room, the visitors (in case they enter your study) will find chairs for them to sit on; hence they will waste your precious time.
Study Room is always incomplete without Book Shelves
Having bookshelves in a study is a must. Arranging books on shelves will make the study room look tidy, clean, and organized. Furthermore, you will easily navigate through and access whatever books or notebooks you would be in need of.
Furthermore, with books arranged in their own place, your table will stay vacant. All the secondary stuff would find its place on the shelves. So, add bookshelves to your checklist while setting up the study room for you.
A Clock and Calendar are essential Add-ons
Another compulsory thing for your study is a clock. So, you should arrange a wall or table clock. It will keep you disciplined. Moreover, it will definitely help you finish your tasks within deadlines.
Similarly, do place a calendar on the table. Although, it is not often used; yet, it will give your table a professional look.
Arrange some Motivational Quotes on Walls
Embellish the walls of your study room with some motivational quotes and wall posters. This will give positive vibes and aura to your room. Moreover, these quotes will keep you up and motivated for the work all the time.
These posters must match the background and theme of the whole room.
A Notice Board is a Must
Notice or bulletin board is an essential partner in your studies. You can easily pin important ideas or points on the board so as to revise whenever you need them. This can help you revise and remember important dates, formulas, quotations, events, outlines, etc during exam preparation.
So, do not forget to add it to your study room. Arrange it somewhere near the table so that it is easily accessible and readable from your chair.
Setting the Theme of the Room
Although one can do without this; yet, it is better to add a soft combination of colors to the room. The color of walls, furniture, clock, and everything must match each other. This will positively impact your personality, psyche, and thoughts.
It is better to have soft and light-colored painted walls; having them matched with the chair, the table, curtains, shelves, etc.
Keep Water and Snacks in the Room
Lastly, to keep yourself hydrated and your tummy relaxed, arrange water and snacks in your study room. With this, you would not have to run to the kitchen every five minutes; otherwise, it will keep distracting you from your work.
Some Don’ts for Study Room
- Do not add television, gaming setup, or any sort of entertainment in your study room. Otherwise, you will keep getting distracted every now and then.
- It is better not to include a bed in the room, or you will be tempted to sleep.
- Do not arrange your table near the window. Keep some distance so that the outside world would not divert your attention intermittently.
In short, these were some basic study room ideas. Rest, you can set up your room as per your taste and interest.
