Need to make a space for your kids when they head back to class?  How about some order to the disorder that accompanies the rush out of the house in the morning?  Take a look at some design ideas that you can adapt with probably not a lot of money or time. 

---

Paint a wall with chalkboard paint, instant canvas.  Add some bins for organization and a table for play or homework and kids will want to do their homework.  The room could also be used for homeschooling with a built-in chalkboard for lessons.

---

You can take a corner of a room and set up a workstation for homework or research.  

---

Two clocks solve one problem when your college, or prep school, student is homesick, studying across the country from home.  

---

Modular cabinets and a board make a double workspace when you have more than one student going back to class.  Add a futon and shelves to make a big space out of a small area.

---

 A small chalkboard and some baskets added near the door you leave everyday will add a bit of organization to a hetic school morning.

---

Use that dead space on your stairs with cubbies for backpacks, boots, and all that other stuff you hunt for when trying to get out the door in the morning.

---

Or add an entire wall unit, complete with hooks for jackets and a seating area.

---

If you have unused wallspace, a few corkboards will add display areas for all of your kid's artwork.

---

A portable chalkboard that can be wheeled out of the way can give homeschooling classrooms the feel of being in traditional school, but still keeping your dining or living rooms usable outside of learning hours. 

---

A longer table, with higher chairs will allow your scholars spread out their work without being cramped.  Bins and shelving help keep order in what could become chaos. 

---

A built-in desk and cabinets can order your materials.  Letter art can help designate the area as a learning zone.

---

Wire bins keep all of your little learner's supplies separated.

---

One designer went so far as to build privacy desks for multiple kids trying to do their homework.  

---

A frame with glass segmented into the month, some wire bins mounted to the wall to hold dry-erase makers, folders, etc, is one solution to get everyone in the house on the same page when it comes to ever-growing schedules.
