How To Set Up A Kid-Friendly Study

Kids these days have more of an evolved learning experience than previous generations. Whether it’s because of home-schooling, extra-curricular activities or homework on iPads and other gadgets, students need a space in the home where they can concentrate and be encouraged to complete tasks to the best of their ability. That’s where a home study comes in.

No matter if your children are in primary school, high school or university, it’s important that there’s an established space in the house that is dedicated to productivity and is separate from the other relaxing rooms where everyday life is spent. Why? Because the home is usually a place to chill out and unwind, it’s essential to make sure the lines are not blurred between work and play. It’s the reason you don’t want your kids studying on the couch. To create an ideal study or home office that your kids can benefit from, we’ve got top tips that are easy, helpful and inexpensive.

Determine The Study Space

If you’re building a New Living home, it’s easy for you to establish a study or spare bedroom in the building process. If you have an existing home but no spare bedroom, get creative with ways to section off a space and turn it into a study nook. Use bookshelves or room dividers to create a separate zone in the house – one that is just big enough to cater for a working space for your child. If your child is still young and needs supervision, try to position their study nook just off somewhere you can keep an eye on them, like the hallway, kitchen or living room.

Create A “No Excuses” Set Up

After your child knows where their homework bench is, set it up for them so that they have no excuse to distract themselves by getting up every so often. This means plugging in a charger for the gadget that they work off, making their stationery items easily accessible and ready to use, keeping a water bottle at the desk, and ensuring that they’re comfortable! Just like adults, kids need a comfortable workspace to stimulate productivity. Be sure to get your child involved and ask them if anything is missing from their workspace.

Eliminate External Distractions

Kids have a short attention span (especially when it comes to homework!), so once they’re focused, remove any background distractions that may disturb them. This means turning off the TV or keeping it at a volume that they can’t hear from their nook, keeping toys and other forms of entertainment away from their study area, and also setting a safeguard on their electronics to make sure that they aren’t playing games or veering away from any online homework.

Speak To A New Living Homes Expert

When building your forever home, you want to make sure that the house design you select will cater to your family’s every need.

You’ll be surprised at how affordable it can be! Call us on 1300 366 766.


Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
