Creating a Great Study Space: Study Table Essentials
Home-based learning was implemented in the first half of 2020 for most students in Singapore when Covid-19 cases were soaring, almost at the same time as offices were made to close and employees had to work-from-home. Parents scrambled to IKEA Singapore to get study tables and study chairs, forming a snaking queue outside the Swedish furniture giant during Circuit Breaker.
Now that the kids have returned to school for lessons, how can parents continue to ensure that their children have everything they need at their study station for maximum productivity? Keep reading for find out ways you can set up an efficient study space for your kid.
1. Good Lighting
Having suitable and good lighting is highly important while studying as light can affect an individual’s mood and concentration in both positive and negative ways. When it comes to purchasing study table lamps, the type of bulb is of utmost importance. Lights in a study area should mimic natural light as much as possible, this means that the bulb cannot be too dim. Its saturation should be in the range between natural daylight and cool white (4000K to 6500K). Studying with lights at this level of brightness will allow you to feel more awake and ready to take in information.
Other than ensuring productivity, proper lighting can also protect your child’s eyes from damage as studying under dim light can cause myopia.
