Messy Room to Homework Station: Bedroom Makeover

*Advertorial

As my son gets older, his bedroom seems to have got messier. He used to keep it very tidy but since turning ten years old, he puts things down and just leaves them. His Grandma and I have spent quite some time tidying his room over the past few months. It had got to the point where we had had quite enough of doing this for him though. We decided that he needed to take back the responsibility of keeping it tidy himself. We just had to figure out a way to motivate him to keep his room clean and clear.

Messy bedroom to homework station: An inspiring bedroom makeover. My son's bedroom was very messy so when we were given a desk from Kit Out My Office, we got to work tidying his bedroom. We re-arranaged the furniture in the bedroom and added the desk. Homework stations for kids and homework stations for teenagers are a great way to motivate children to do their homework and to keep the room tidy. Desk orginaisation is important too. We have made sure that my son has everything he needs within arms reach, to get his homework done quickly and painlessly. Less distractions are best. This bedroom idea for small rooms is perfect for my tween. This shows the bedroom makeover before and after pictures. This Aspire desk is great for any budget. My son chose a science themed desk space. He included his periodic table, robot stacking dolls, magnet fiddle toy, his science experiments book, a quote from Einstein to motivate him, his guitar picks, a stationary pot and of course, his Lego creation. #ad
