How We Homeschool: Our Homeschool Room

Do you know what’s fun?

Getting to nosey around other peoples houses!

I don’t know about you, but I love having a good ol’ sticky beak. Can you imagine getting to go into someone’s home and take a good look at what’s on their shelves, chuckling to yourself when you notice they don’t dust either. Looking inside their cupboards! Oh my. It’s a nosey girls dream 😉

And because I know I can’t be the only one, this week I have decided to let you into my home and open up the cupboards. Well, one cupboard and one room. But hey! It’s a start.

Come take a look inside our homeschool room. See the way we use the space and make it work for us.


Now not everyone has a designated schoolroom and that’s ok! We haven’t always had a schoolroom and even now that we do, we don’t always use it. The beauty of homeschool is that you can do it your way. The trick is to take what you have and make it work for you. You need to think about your homeschooling philosophy, the way your lessons are structured and the types of activities you get up to regularly.

Do you have a lot of art materials to store?

Do you have a lot of books that you need to keep out at one time?

Are there vastly different ages you need to cater to?

Are you using a hands on maths curriculum with lots of manipulatives to keep on hand?

Do you need to incorporate therapeutic tools into your space?

These are just a few questions to ask yourself when you are planning a homeschool space. Every mum is going to have a different set of answers so every space should look and function a little differently. It’s fun and inspiring to see other people’s rooms, but please don’t get caught up in the comparison game. No one wins that way.

I would love to see your rooms too! Why not post a photo to Instagram or even a room tour on YouTube and then post the link in the comments section below then we can all go snooping through each other’s houses 😉
