6 Designer-Approved Kids’ Desks For Back-to-School
Even though my son is only going into grade two this September, I can already see the importance of having a designated space for homework and school projects. A good desk is a big part of that. While there’s nothing wrong with homework sessions on the kitchen table, giving your kids a desk to call their own will encourage hard work and creativity. Let them be part of the shopping process, but don’t give them too much authority. After all, mom and dad know best when it comes to design! Here are my favorite desks that are both kid-friendly and adult-approved.
I like the simple clean lines of the Burnham desk from Elte Mkt. It has two drawers and a lip that goes around the sides and back – perfect for rolling pens and pencils. People still use those, right?
The Catalina Storage Desk from PBKids has the cottage country look down pat. I like how it has the option to add a hutch for extra organization.
The Micke workstation from Ikea is inexpensive and offers some great bells and whistles, like a magnetic board and cord outlet. The bright blue and white combo is a great way to add color to your kid’s space.
The Emily Petit Desk from Ethan Allen is certainly good for a traditional bedroom. I prefer the black but it also comes in white and a natural wood color.
Since it’s so simple and has the look of an antique piece of furniture, it can easily be moved out of the bedroom and used as a console in, say, a hall once your child has outgrown it.
This desk from DwellStudio has the popular mid-century modern look. Lots of drawers and surface space provide more than enough room for school supplies.
This original mid-century teak desk from Guff is my favorite. The price is on point and the style is classic. Perhaps it’s a bit mature, but that only means it will grow with your child into adulthood.
