When it comes to homework, kids between 8 and 12 need an organized space. Their children’s desks & chairs get an A grade.. The desks offer lots of choice and smart features like built-in cable management. And with height adjustable seats, their chairs will keep up with growing bodies for years. Designs are kept simple so they will blend into any decor. They also have some great shelves which can attach to the desks or be attached to a wall.
We always love the sleek and nordic furniture brought in by Kühl Home and their study desks by Lifetime Kidsrooms are just as pretty and ergonomical. Our top pick? The Height Adjustable Desk with and without slant, which is adjustable from 56cm to 78cm. The added slant gives your child added comfort as it varies the desk to different positions (slant positions are 0, 10, and 20 degrees) for your little ones to do basically anything, be it drawing, reading, writing, or painting. You need not worry about stability too as the front of the desk remains horizontal, ensuring your child’s stationery won’t slide down. The height-adjustable desk is also available with a drawer, for pencils, papers, and other small stuff! Perfect!
