With back to school just around the corner, the dreaded ‘homework’ will soon rear its ugly head.

Instead of running in fear from the thought of homework clutter taking over your kitchen table, take the time before school starts to carve out a dedicated space for your star student to study in an environment that keeps school supplies organized and tidy.

Creating the perfect homework station doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg and these items from IKEA are a homework must-have.

FLISAT Children’s Desk

While Ikea has a slew of different sized desks and chairs, if you have a little one starting elementary school you will get a lot of mileage out of the FLISAT children’s desk. With three different heights, the desk will grow with your child. Thanks to its tilting top and holder for a drawing paper roll, the FLISAT also makes a great art station.


Cramped space? Ikea’s MICKE desk is the perfect size for creating a dedicated homework station in a tight space. It comes with a drawer, perfect for stashing those homework assignments and at just $49.99, this sturdy little desk comes in either white, or black-brown.


This little cart-on-wheels makes the perfect vehicle for housing books, papers and stationary supplies. Purchase a few of IKEA’s “Sunnersta”containers to house pens and pencils. These savvy little containers can clip on to the edge of the RASKOG cart for extra storage.

SKADIS Pegboard

Create more desk space by mounting a SKADIS pegboard on the wall. The SKADIS system allows you to create your own combination of SKADIS accessories that can display everything from pencil holders to calenders and important papers.
