Great Ideas to Get Ready for Back to School | Tucson.com
It’s that time of year again—back
to school! Whether you or your kids are going off to college, or you just want
to spruce up your child’s room for the upcoming academic year, we’ve got you
covered at Sam Levitz!
Adding new furniture, accents, and
lighting can really improve the design and functionality of a study or dorm
space. These rooms are important places to learn, grow, and relax.
Functionality goes a long way when it comes to creating study spaces that
foster productivity. And of course, style and comfort are important, too. The
key is to mix all of these attributes to create a dedicated space for work that
students will enjoy spending time in. Remember: if they like the space, they
are more likely to use it!
Without further ado, we present our
handpicked selections below to furnish a dorm or
kid’s study space.
