Ensuring your child has a quality childrens desk is an important addition to your child’s bedroom. We have a vast range of kids desks from desks for gaming or to encourage that all-important study & creative time. For more information, check out our kids desks buying guide.
Children develop at different rates and as such, height may be a better indicator of what desk to buy for your child; however expert age guidelines suggest:
Important factors to consider when choosing a desk for your child are age, development and activity. Kids need a work/creativity area just as much as adults do, you need to take into account the smaller stature of your child; an adult-sized desk probably won’t cut it in most instances.
With age, comes development, and all children develop at different rates so you need to pick a desk that is more suited to your own child’s development & height. We at Room to Grow would argue that these factors are more important than using age as a defining factor because your child may not be the same as the ‘average’.
Although some sources suggest that children that desks are great between the ages of 6 and 12, creativity sparks at different ages and here at Room to Grow, we suggest it can be earlier than that.
Whether your child enjoys drawing, crafts projects or has just started getting their first stages of homework in; getting creative at the dining table doesn’t work for all children. Children’s bedrooms can be a great place for imagination and creativity; with an additional benefit of independence when suited with a desk.
Ensuring your child has a quality bedroom desk is important, particularly if they are of school age and have homework to be doing. It isn’t only a space for study, however, it can be a creative space for them to paint or colour. Having a desk provides children with a place to concentrate, study and express themselves.
Having a sturdy and quality desk that will see your child throughout their school years from primary school to GCSE’s will ensure they always have a place where they can prioritise their studying.
It can sometimes seem like an impossible task to get children to do their homework but by creating a homework friendly space you can encourage good study practice; if children have dedicated study space it makes them focus more and become more receptive to study time. Encouraging good studying habits from a young age is good practice for when it becomes even more important.
Having their own bedroom desk means they can personalise it to their own tastes and organise it as they please. Having a well organised desk is important as it is essential that it be optimised for maximum concentration.
Desks with optimum storage such as cupboards and drawers are great as it maximises the usefulness of bedroom furniture meaning you can neatly store any paperwork or homework. If you are short on space there are minimalistic designs that could work well or a bedroom desk integrated into beds such as a cabin bed could be excellent as it maximises floor space.
From our popular white desks to our more stylish slate grey versions, we have a great collection of children’s desks in a range of colours and styles for sale.
