A back-to-school homework space that’s quiet for focus, colorful for inspiration and organized to reduce distractions would make homework time a pleasure for most kids.

    When planning a homework space, remember these five important elements:

    1. Color: Wallpaper or paint a wall or the shelf openings in a bold and invigorating color.
    2. Furniture: A small desk with storage or a coordinating file cabinet and a comfortable chair are essential.
    3. Lighting: Make sure there’s plenty of ambient and task lighting.
    4. Organization: Include lots of organization and storage options like shelves, cork board, pegboard, cubbies, baskets and containers to keep the space tidy and everything in its place.
    5. Personalization: Add some items that are personal to your child’s style, like monogrammed items, a favorite color or personal wall art.
