In this era, my husband and I strongly felt the children should not have computers in their bedrooms. My kids also love to craft, color, write and do jigsaw puzzles. We designed a communal study for the entire family with huge #jeldwen windows with views of the lake. The desktop is stained a rich walnut color and runs continuously around half the room where the children’s desks are (shown). The other side not shown has separate desks for my husband and myself, a gift wrap area and a built in craft supply cabinet with a quartz countertop and sink. Once the room was completed we purchased a large zinc top farmhouse style project table that sits in the middle of the room. We also went for a beautiful low pile commercial grade carpet in a grey chevron pattern because we love the feel of carpet under our feet at our desks! #familystudy#desks#lakeliving#lakelife#newconstruction#study#projects#homeworkroom#kidsspace#stainedesktop
