The study area should represent a person’s personality and distinctiveness, as it influences the state of mind of the occupant, which subsequently boosts or minimises their productivity.  It should be arranged, equipped, and designed in such a way that the user feels comfortable and productive, with no distractions. However, this does not imply that it must be austere and monotonous.

Let's take a look at some design ideas to upgrade or design your study room or space with a splash of glass:

Demarcate dedicated study space

If one does not have a separate study room, it is essential to carve out a nook within another room, visibly-spatially separate it, and identify it as the “study space.” In such cases, a foldable or fixed glass screen wall can be used to partition the space and reduce distractions. Frosted or patterned glass screens may also be employed to offer a fresh, modern touch to the study room.

Use Glass-top Study Table

A basic study room design plan that uses minimalist décor, where less is more, is ideal. While the purpose of a study desk is to be utilitarian, one may always add their personality to its design. A lacquered glass tabletop improves the aesthetics of the study table and the desk might be as simple as a countertop with drawers or storage sections beneath and double as a doodling pad. For a clean aesthetic, the study room walls might be white or in pastel shades to bring calming energy into the place. Glass is dust and corrosion-resistant, making it one of the most durable materials available. It is very simple to clean and maintain and will appear as good as new for many years to come.

Use Lacquered Glass Wall Cabinets as Bookshelves in the Study Room

A study table with a bookshelf design or built-in drawers helps balance all of your work accouterments in the study area or room. When space does not permit the installation of a desk with built-in storage, wall-mounted shelving is a viable option.

Shelves are useful for storing files and critical papers, especially for displaying a book lover’s collection. In modern study room designs, toughened glass floating shelves that are strong and easy to clean, as well as lacquered glass cabinets that seem effortlessly stylish, can be employed. If your personality is peppy, use of vibrant colour schemes to create different themes helps create a personalised corner to boost productivity.

Use Decorative Glass for Wall Accents

A colourful play of textures and colours may significantly improve the look of a study room. Picture frames, lamps, indoor plants, and mirror showpieces all help personalise the space in your study room and make it feel like one’s own. Wall cladding, which may be accomplished using tinted mirrors, is one option to create an intriguing and appealing background for your workstation. They not only have a magnificent finish, but they also provide a visual sense of space and openness in a study room.

Creatively Make the Walls Functional in Your Dream Study Room

One of the most important things in a study space or room is a writing board which comes in handy during brainstorming. It is useful for marking down significant points, ideating, planning, writing down important reminders, and creating workflows.  SGG Glassnote can offer clean and spotless erasure as a writing board. Glass writing boards are elegant, easy to clean, bring a touch of modern flair to the study room or space, and are available in a variety of colours.
