How to make the most out of a small classroom space?


The learning space that you create for your students can directly influence their educational experience. It is vital to make the most out of your classroom no matter the size. If your classroom space is smaller than the ideal room, there are several effective ways to make the most out of your small space.

1: Remove Large Furniture

Large furniture pieces are often too bulky and difficult to arrange in a small room. Therefore, opt for smaller, lightweight, and mobile pieces of furniture as they are more functional and offer lots of options when arranging a classroom. Smaller student tables provide more options for configuration and can help maximise your floor space.


2: Mobile Storage Solutions

Almost anything on casters can help make the most of small spaces. Investing in mobile storage solutions allows you to easily move items around the classroom and adapt more quickly to the needs of your students. At Abax Kingfisher we supply a wide range of trolleys and other mobile solutions that are perfect for the small classroom.


3: Student Desk Arrangements

There are endless amounts of ways to organise classroom tables to add more space. We recommend organising your tables in small groups, this way you can foster both individual and collaborative learning all while making the most of your space.


4: Teacher Stations

It is vital that teachers have all they need in the school classroom. At Abax Kingfisher, our mobile teaching station with folding sides is the perfect addition to your small classroom. It is a teacher’s caddy and table in one, with plenty of storage for personal belongings. You can also custom the width, height and/or depth depending on the classroom needs.


5: Make Use of Every Space

Make a list of all the items that you need in your classroom, and then organise where to place them. Consider creating a drawing of your classroom so you can visually arrange your space. Be sure to remember wall space, everything from shelves and hooks to other creative solutions hung off walls can provide extra storage space.
