Advice on Setting Up a Home Classroom


<< More From Moss Building & Design




Dear Moss Building & Design,

With my local county’s decision to start school this fall virtually, do you have any advice for setting up a home “classroom”?


Dear Dulles Mom,

Thanks for asking this question — we recently touched base on this in a recent blog, so definitely check it out for our full list of ideas.

In the meantime, we would recommend looking at your home with your children and together, discuss what might work best. Ask questions like:

• Does each child need a separate space with a desk?
• If they already have a desk, is it set up with the ideal lighting and seating?
• Do you have enough bandwidth to support multiple family members online at the same time?

We would highly recommend giving your home a critical once over and then formulating a design plan for either adding on to what you’ve already got or figuring out how to create a classroom space in your home that can help meet your children’s educational needs. It’s not what we expected for this year, but there are ways to make it work!
