The study room in your house serves multiple purposes. While it is the room where kids can complete school assignments and study in peace, it is also the place where adults can read, study or work from home.
Given that it is the most productive area of the house, it is important that the study room is decorated and furnished in a way that makes the user feel comfortable and productive. It should be organised to reflect a person’s character.
However, that does not mean that you can’t experiment with the study room décor. Here are few décor ideas to beautify the study room.
Keep it organised with a wall bookshelf
Keeping a study room organised is a daunting task, especially if you are the one with lots of books and stationery. A great way to beautify the room while adding plenty of storage unit is by furnishing it with a long, wall-mounted shelving unit.
The space underneath can be used for a wall-mounted desk and reading stools that can be folded and kept when not in use.
You can add bold accessories like art pieces to open up the space visually.
Beautify it with smart lights
Lights are a very important element of a study room. Different people prefer different lighting arrangements. While the kids may prefer task lighting, those working on a laptop may prefer dim to moderate lighting.
Therefore, a good idea is to choose smart lighting that can be changed and illuminated as per your mood and controlled using a smartphone. And they are available in many visually appealing designs too!
Get rid of dangling wires
Working on a school/college assignment requires a laptop, printer, Internet and what not. That means you need to manage a lot of electronic items that dangle and tangle near your study desk.
One of the primary steps in making your study room look clean and attractive is by managing these wires.
Try to place your desk near the source of the power supply to reduce the length of dangling wires. Tie the wires together using threads or flexible wires so that there is one uniform line of wires instead of multiple wires of different length. The key is to keep the wires managed and well hidden from the eyesight.
Go for motivational posters
Motivational quotes, posters or photo frames make for excellent study room decoratives.
However, don’t overdo this. Stick to a maximum of 2-3 posters. Anything more than this will make your room look cluttered.
Throw in a bean bag
You might not want to study or work sitting in the chair all the time. A bean bag is a great option that makes the study room look chic and provides you with a comfortable sitting option.
Bean bags are now available in many amazing colours and designs, making it a wonderful décor item.

A custom cork board wall or a bulletin board wall is a cool addition to any study room. It is a quirky addition that compliments the mood of the study room nice and provides an accessible space to add notes, pictures, reminders etc. without compromising on your wall.
