Among the ingredients that promote academic success, the right furniture might not seem like a big deal. But, not having a place to store study necessities and to do school work can become an added hurdle for your child to overcome.
Places for Books
Bookcases provide the dual function of keeping books accessible and visible, offering students no excuses when it’s time to pull them out. Each of our options (view our bookcase selection) include an anti-tip kit you can use to secure the bookcase to the wall. You can custom-order your bookcase by choosing not only the finish but also the width and height.
Standard widths (in inches) are 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, and 60. Standard heights are 24 and 30 (both with 1 shelf), 36, (2 shelves), 48 (3 shelves), 60 (4 shelves), 72 (5 shelves), and 84 (6 shelves). The standard depth of our bookcases is 12 inches, and standard depth of each shelf is 10-3/4 inches. Custom sizing is available, including increased depth to 16 or 20 inches. Adjustable shelves, base doors, and crown molding can be added in most styles, as well.
An alternative style is a Corner Bookcase unit that takes up 30 inches along each wall (and cannot be sized differently). Heights available in corner units are as follows (in inches): 24 and 30 (with 1 shelf), 36 (with 2 shelves), 48 (with 3 shelves), 60 (with 4 shelves), 72 (with 5 shelves). Standard bookcase depth is 12 inches, and shelf depth is 10-3/4 inches. A smaller, pie-shaped Corner Bookcase option is available, taking up only 12 inches along each wall and measuring 16-1/2” from corner to corner.
Places for Study
Did you know that proper study posture isn’t just about your spinal health? While it does contribute to your physical health, good posture also provides psychological benefits, according to a recent study at Ohio State.
For one thing, proper posture influences a student’s confidence regarding the task at hand: “If a student is sitting up straight, he may be more likely to believe his first answer. But if he is slumped down, he may change it and end up not performing as well.”
On a more significant level, posture also affects how we perceive ourselves and our likelihood of success — which, in turn, helps influence our success or failure. The Bedroom Source Collection includes the following posture-promoting pieces by giving your child or teen a place to sit and study:
Made from solid wood and ¾” plywood with veneers, The Bedroom Source Collection includes many beds and storage pieces that are made-to-order right here in New England to coordinate with one another, in your choice of water-based, non-toxic finishes.
