Student Doing School Work on Bed Improve performance, focus, and efficiency for your kids this school year with real work desks

Productive and purposeful workspaces

Just as working from home is more efficient with a home office, so the business of school and learning is improved with appropriate study space. “Children need to know that schoolwork matters, and that hard work can be rewarding. Creating a calm, inviting and comfortable space shows them just how important their studies are, and how much you care about their success at school. Kids get used to focusing on their work for longer periods when they have a place to study.” (

Especially as kids get to middle school, high school, and college, having real desk space will help them excel. Creating the feel of a classroom experience will make it easier to stay focused when it’s time to work, whether it’s virtual classes with a laptop, home schooling with a parent, or homework assignments on their own. At the kitchen table or lounging on a bed or sofa with family life swirling around them isn’t conducive to real study and may result in a half-hearted effort on their part. Give your kids a competitive edge with one of Tailored Living’s pre-designed home offices that provide highly functional space for serious students.

Recapture room space with a closet organization system

An out-of-control closet can impact more than just a child’s wardrobe, it can create havoc in the whole bedroom. Clothes scattered everywhere can make them late to school when they can’t find what they need and the messy atmosphere can disturb their sleep, resulting in cranky kids (and cranky parents). According to, messy surroundings and clutter can generate stress, increase dissatisfaction, and make it hard to focus. Any one of those could make back to school more of a challenge for any age child, making on-campus or home schooling that much harder. Since a child’s bedroom is where they spend a lot of time, transforming their room from chaos to calm can have a positive impact. A custom closet storage system could be the catalyst for a bedroom makeover that creates a more comfortable and functional space for your child.

Custom Closet Organization Systems Teens and younger children can easily manage their wardrobes with custom closet organization systems designed just for them

  • Maximized closet space with floor-to-ceiling tiered hanging rods, adjustable shelves, drawers, and pull-out bins eliminates bedroom clutter with designated space for everything in the closet.
  • Age-appropriate design keeps clothes and accessories within easy reach, including casual folded, dressy hanging, sports uniforms, shoes, boots, jackets, backpacks, hats, and purses.
  • Supplement reach-in closet space with a chest of drawers or bookcases to hold closet overflow or books, collectibles, and other items that belong in the room but not in the closet.
  • Functional storage pieces (storage ottomans, nightstands with drawers, pre-designed desk sets) will keep the floor clear of clutter and make the room more inviting for spending time reading, listening to music, texting, doing homework, daydreaming or sleeping.
