Smart Study Room Ideas

1. The Explorer (of the Mind)

Antique Wold Map Wallpaper

Does thinking about all of the possibilities in the world spark your creative mind? Perfect because one of our study room ideas uses a map (or maps, if you prefer more) to get you pondering everywhere that life could take you – if you focus up and complete your current studies.

2. The Bright Office for the Bright Mind

The Bright Office for the Bright Mind

Liven up your study room through the use of bright accents, paint, and decorations like the one in the space pictured above. Perhaps you find radiant colors sharpen up your senses to keep you focused on the task at hand.

To take on this style, we suggest a darker colored desktop to make sure that your brighter objects pop!

3. The Window (to the Mind)

The Window for Study Room

Nothing like a nice, big window for natural light to get you stewing on your studies. You could choose to face the window for a relaxing view or put your back to it, like in this study, to enjoy the natural light warming your entire room.

4. The Organizer

Keep all your thoughts in line with this design’s multiple files, drawers, boards, and a calendar. If you work better in a busy environment, a deskspace like this could sharpen you up while giving you places to stash away your items. Best of all, you can stay on top of everything with a calendar!

5. The Artful Office

Who doesn’t love a pretty picture every time they look up? Art of a style of your choosing can be placed up on your study room’s walls to keep you inspired every time you glance upwards away from your projects. Creativity is never further away than a tilt of the head – as long as you aren’t the easily distracted sort!

6. The Straightforward Thinker

Some of us are the distracted type – but that’s okay! Use natural colors with white and black contrasts on simple furniture with no designs to create a space that breeds focus. No need for any extra frills here, right? Your study room is a place to come to and get things done.

7. The Space for Industriousness

Nothing like an industrial inspired study room to inspire your own industry, right? A desk and shelving that features prominent metal features along with other metal furniture can give you a barebones study room that keeps your mind as sharp as the razor’s edge. It’s great to cool off with a study room fan this summer.

This essentials-only feel can also keep you from distractions that other styles might let into your space.

8. The Bookworm’s Haven

Surround yourself with knowledge with books, books, and more books! A large bookcase or other shelving styles can be used to cover up entire walls or mounted in front of your desk to remind you of the wealth of knowledge the world has to offer you as long as you are in your study room. Low light can be used to create that library feel.


9. The Sailor’s Study

LakeSide - Study Room and Home Office

For a themed study with some character, you may enjoy a nautical style. Use plenty of white, dark blue (perhaps navy), and silver to create the perfect aesthetic to navigate your mind’s ocean. Some seaworthy art or other decorations can further accent your maritime flair.

10. The Homey Office

A heavy use of weathered wood and metal accents can give your study space a rustic aesthetic that feels comfortable and inviting. What’s the use in having a study that doesn’t feel comfy, anyway? With the appropriate “barnyard chic” styling, your study room can send your head to a warm meadow with a cool breeze of knowledge.

11. The Corkboard Bureau

Corkboard Small Home Office Ideas

Give yourself a space that changes with you by incorporating a corkboard. Post your favorite photos, thoughts, and inspirations on your (physical!) wall to add your always changing personality to your office.

You can even use it to keep organized or give yourself reminders. Style and function are mainstays with this corky idea.

12. The Relaxed Researcher

The Relaxed Researcher

Hey, just a quick reminder that nobody said you can’t whistle while you work! Put a couch in your study room so that you can relax your mind for a second and rest up for another bout of work. Or, if you prefer, you can take a load off while you strive for excellence.

13. The Entrepreneur

A large, heavy desk with wardrobes of shelves around the room is a caricature of the office space and personal study – but for good reason. For some, the professional feel of sitting behind such a desk can be enough to put them in the mood for getting down to business and getting done what needs to get done.
