Just installed a desk system the other day for a teenager who is starting her freshman year in high school. Her parents recognized she had outgrown her small work space and needed storage for files and a desktop that was big enough to spread out paperwork; a multitude of textbooks that seem to be growing in number and size these days; and her computer. Not to mention the supplies! Every student should have supplies at their fingertips: highlighters, erasers, rulers, scissors, scientific calculator, sticky pads, graph paper, ink, protractor, and the list goes on…We love the elfa desk system from The Container Store which you can customize to your specific needs. You can have rolling file carts and/or drawers underneath and shelves above that are adjustable and come in multiple depths. They also have desktop collections that allow you to have the same look and uniform feel to all your desktop storage solutions – visually attractive, and for teens they have fun, bright colors to liven up any room! Add a splash of color to the wall, and you’ll be all set. The desk went in, the daughter is ecstatic and is off to pick up a funky bulletin board – thankfully the days of the plain brown cork ones are long gone! Happy studying.
