Our Homeschool Room Transformation | MommyWifeLife

Learning time for my children has taken place in every room of our home. It has moved from the living room, to the kitchen, to the basement, and back to the kitchen. Now, we have a room thats use will only be for learning time. We recently transformed our loft into a space where our children’s minds will grow and where they will discover and explore. We now have an official homeschool room!

Once I decided where the designated area would be, I started planning, searching on Pinterest and pinning! Isn’t that what we ALL do before we embark on an ambitious endeavor?

While planning, I realized most of the items I liked and wanted were at IKEA, even after comparing prices with several other stores. Before our trip to purchase our homeschool room items, we had never shopped at IKEA, so I was excited (maybe a little more than excited) to head to the Cincinnati area to get there.

I decided I wanted to include mainly white furniture, with accents of primary colors, making it bright, inviting, and of course, conducive for learning for years. I wanted our learning time room to include plenty of storage space, table and chairs that would grow with our girls (and family), a reading area, craft area and space to display art, and an area to allow my girls easy access to independent learning activities. I was able to find most of what I needed for the room at IKEA and grabbed a few accessories from every mom’s faithful friend/store, Target.

Before the Transformation

Our loft was the perfect location for our homeschool room. It was an unused space that required extra dusting. This area would allow the girls and I to have great natural sunlight and a space that would not be used for any other reason but for learning.

The Transformation

The day after shopping we got right to work to begin our homeschool room transformation. Thank goodness for my husband, because we had a few pieces that would have taken me a few days to build–he only needed a couple hours. The girls were big helpers and were just as excited about their new space.

Although a homeschool room is not required for kids to learn, having a designated learning area has made me more excited to teach and to see my children learn in this room for years to come.

    I think you have really done a fantastic job. The girls are so blessed to have parents that are always looking out for their future. Would love to see this room in person….

  • Wow, you picked out some great items. You did an amazing job with that room. I’m looking around my homeschool area thinking “time for an upgrade.” Thanks for the inspiration.
