The study is not only an aesthetic question, but also functional. According to psychpedagogues, children manage more to focus on their school responsibilities when there is a dedicated environment for that purpose at home; that is, when there is a place and the time determined for the performance of their school duties.
The main challenge is to find that place to generate the right environment. If space allows, the bedroom is presented as a very good option. If this is not possible, another sector of the housing may be chosen.
To generate it, specialists advise, have the flexibility to organize it, look for the ideal spaces, avoid those areas where there are elements that contribute to the distraction (games room or TV), situate the area preferably under the window.
If the boys should share the study area, a long table and two chairs can be added on each side, or two desks placed on opposite walls.
The study table should be as large and roomy as possible, enough to locate the designer desk lamp, a computer, a book and a notebook.
The desktop should, besides being nice, be comfortable, durable and functional. Today, it is possible to find them with a contemporary style, able to adapt easily to the design style of the environment.
A desk with a solid structure will guarantee a long life that will accompany the development of the child until his youth.
As we said, on the desktop there must be a specific area where the desk lamp is placed, so that the light is focused on the study area. The ideal light source is white and if possible LED.
.- To take advantage of natural light, look for a sector as close to the window as possible. Use lamps that provide the necessary light (9w in led) and place them to the left if the child is right-handed and to the right if is left-handed, to avoid shadows.
.- The surface of the table should be at chest height and the arms resting comfortably on it.
.- The chair should allow correct posture. The feet should rest on the floor or on a footrest; the back should be straight and well supported.
.- Important note: check the cables of the lamps and the PC or notebook, so that they are not a dangerous obstacle to the work.
