How to Create a Homeschool Area or Workstation in a Small Space on a Budget

Writing surfaces and seating arrangement.

You don’t need to go out and get an ergonomic chair or unique desk for your child.  All you do need is a flat surface that your kids can use to write and work on with a comfortable chair.

Wall Space

Homeschooling can take up some wall space. Maximize this space and make a homeschool area work for you by taking down some pictures or making your wall items such as a calendar or whiteboard portable.


One of the staples of a homeschool classroom is the whiteboard. If your children are visual learners, you will want to ensure that you have an excellent dry erase board that can feature things like your daily schedule, essential sheets, and other items that you can quickly put up when you’re ready to teach.


When you are homeschooling, you are going to need to have a lot of storage. You could empty a few drawers in your kitchen for homeschool books and supplies, but I recommend using storage containers that you can easily break out whenever it’s time to do schoolwork. You can likely find a closet or another storage area that you can hold all of your supplies.
