A Quick Guide to Designing a Study Room- Lighting, Corner Desks, and More

Designing a Study Room

Going by a study, it is said that the place where you study directly relates to how much you are prone to remember. Thus, the study room has much to do with your focus, concentration, and grasping power. It is a place that needs a lot of creativity, imagination, and motivation; hence it should be designed such that an individual gains all three.

A dull study room might not have the spark to let an individual come up with their creative and productive side, but a well-designed study room can be truly inspirational to spruce up creativity and focus. Study rooms embedded with the right kind of corner desk, chairs, and a pleasing design are all you need to stay focused and organized. Want to know how you can set up your study room? Here is how you can get started:

Choose a color scheme

If your study room is small, then preferably, you should go in for neutral and pastel shades for coloring your study room. It will magically make your study room appear bigger and more spacious.

Maintaining a light-colored canvas that compliments the interiors of the study room and other pieces of furniture will be an add-on. On the contrary, if you wish to have a classy and lively appeal in your study room, you can go in for color pops like yellow, green, red, blue, etc.

Buy the right kind of furniture

When it comes to introducing furniture in your study room, you might come across a multitude of options in the name of chairs and desks. But the catch lies in choosing the right ones.

You can consider choosing a corner desk for your study room because not only does it save you a lot of space, but they are available in a plethora of designs and styles that leave you awestruck.

They also enhance your efficiency to study and let you stay focused, besides allowing effortless access to all corners of the table so that you can easily grab onto your books and other staples.

On the contrary, when you head out to buy study chairs, think of introducing ergonomics so that your comfort and body posture is not compromised at any cost when you sit down to study for extended hours.

Ensure enough lighting

A study room is a place that requires high-end engrossment toward studies, and this cannot be attained when you do not have adequate lighting in your study room. Make sure that you have a well-lit layout above the corner desk to add warmth and enough light that helps you concentrate on your studies.

Also, set up your study table such that it receives enough natural light and fresh air during the daytime, which will not only cut down on the electricity bills but will also give you refreshing vibes to make you feel charged up.

Introduce the green dose

Bringing nature inside your study rooms is necessary for a calming vibe in your study arena. You can either do this by getting a whole potted plant inside the room and keeping it in a place where it receives enough sun and shade.

Or, you can go for a small planter that can be easily placed on top of your corner desk that lets you gaze at the much-needed dose of nature whenever your eyes need a break.

Say no to distractions

Study rooms should have no scope for distractions, so move out everything that can divert your mind and intrude on your concentration. Get your corner desk free from any type of digital distractions, and always keep it clutter-free so that you can focus on your studies rather than being lost in your own world.

If your budget permits you for soundproofing, you can consider incorporating the same so that the traffic sounds, a poky neighbor, or any other sound does not disturb you when you devote yourself to studies.

Use scents

Just like the magic of plants, fragrance also has its own share to keep you motivated. A place that smells nice will surely help you have all those feel-good vibes that can enhance focus and concentration. You can use room fresheners, perfumes, scented candles, or fragrance oil lamps such as rosemary, lavender, etc., to hike the retention of what you study.


Designing a study room layout is an exciting affair, but it can be tricky at the same time. It is because studies need dedication and discipline, but a study-friendly environment goes beyond these factors to design a reading space that calms your mind and gives you an ambiance that helps you reap maximum productivity.

Right from the colors to textures, chairs, and corner desks, there is a lot that comes associated with designing a superb study room. But with the tips mentioned above, you can stay rest assured of having a dream decor in your studystation where you can always look forward to studying.
