Ordering custom furniture for your school or office can seem like a daunting task –…
Did you know that a well-run classroom begins with its physical layout and design? The arrangement of desks, the artwork on the walls, and the storage and supplies are just a handful of aspects you must consider when designing the perfect classroom.
To help you with classroom design, we have curated a list of teacher-tested tips to get you started:
Tip 1: Evaluate the classroom space and style
The physical layout of your classroom must match your teaching style. If you want to foster a more collaborative space, organise the students around tables or clusters of desks. For a classroom with frequent whole-group discussions, consider a circle or U-shaped desk configuration. At Abax Kingfisher, we supply a range of student tables suitable for all classroom spaces and designs.
Tip 2: Add decorations and colour
Decorations and colour in your classroom can help liven up the space. Add some colour on the walls, and personal touches such as plants, art, posters, rugs and even some cosy pillows and beanbags for the reading corner
Tip 3: Easy accessibility
All classroom materials and supplies should be easily accessible by both the students and teachers. At Abax Kingfisher, we offer a range of classroom storage solutions, including art dryers, colourful book boxes and storage tubs suitable for any classroom design. To eliminate time waiting, store materials in several areas around the classroom.
Tip 4: Ensure natural lighting
Natural lighting in a classroom is vital for students’ well-being and concentration. Don’t cover your windows with decorations, keep them clear and open to ensure that the classroom has as much natural light as possible. Natural lighting also fosters creativity and learning and is overall important for students’ academics.
Tip 5: Invest in ergonomic furniture
In most classrooms, the largest amount of space is devoted to the arrangement of individual desks and chairs. It is vital that the school classroom furniture is ergonomic in order to ensure comfort and maintain student’s physical health. Abax Kingfisher school furniture has been designed to be comfortable for all-day use, and to help protect young bodies.
