With great anticipation, school bells begin to chime all over the country as parents prepare their kids for another exciting year of study. Now is also a good time to preemptively plan the area of our home where school work will be done. The space should offer up the the ability to focus, have supplies handy and feel comfortable and motivational all at the same time. Our “Room of the Day” is an excellent example of a work zone properly decked out so that your young Einsteins can excel to the top of the class!
