As many parents are faced with new social distancing rules, the majority are now having to home school their children.
Create a desk area for your kids schoolwork and homework, to encourage them to get stuck in. You can dedicate a space for your children to learn and get creative by investing in a well-designed and functional kids' desk.

You can set up the desk area in their playroom, their bedroom, the family room or in the adults’ home office, or create a cosy homework nook in the kitchen.
Ultimately, it's important to give them a desk area that’s the right size and design, to encourage creativity and concentration. And aside from just looking good, a desk needs to be practical too; go for a finish that can be easily wiped clean, and refinished after years of use. Other child-friendly design features include rounded edges for avoiding scrapes.
