The Ultimate Guide to Homeschool Rooms

The smell of  freshly sharpen pencils, stacks of notebook paper, boxes of curriculum being delivered to the door and new water color paints start getting families excited for the new school year.  Every summer I find myself figuring out how to set up our homeschool area/room.  I looked a few years ago for some inspiration for homeschooling rooms, and didn’t find many.  In the last few years and with the help of Pinterest, it seems that more moms are willing to share their homeschooling space. So I was able to take a peek into the windows of some of these homeschooling families!

I always tell people homeschooling is a lifestyle.  Don’t let homeschooling over take your house.  I try not to let our house look like a “classroom”  But I try to let the classroom be our house.  So I have moved into calling our “Homeschool Room” our “Homeschool area” because in the long run they will all end up at the kitchen table.

But each family is different and that is the nice thing about homeschooling.

You get to do it the way it fits for your family!

I am excited to be  joining almost 40 other blogging homeschool moms over at iHomeschool Network for the Ultimate Guides!  Have fun visiting all these great homeschooling rooms! Have a homeschool room you would like me to visit, leave a comment!

Then head over to the other Ultimate Posts and see what they have to offer!  Make sure you leave comments! You could win some free books!

    Love all the organization ideas! Right now, homeschooling has taken over our tiny apartment, but someday it would be nice to corral everything. Bookmarking for the future.

  2. I love looking at homeschool rooms. Great ideas!

  3. This has been one of my FAVORITE ultimate guides to read. First, because I jokingly describe our decorating style as "postmodern homeschool" or sometimes just "library," and second because I am total house voyeur and love to see everyone else's! Thanks for including us (and Dudley!)

    • mommahopper says:

      I thought he was awesome! My kids are begging me to buy one at Costco, I just may break down and do it (my hubby doesn’t read this right?) what a great reading corner with a big teddy bear!

  4. I love, love, loved this Ultimate Guide! ^_^ So many awesome areas and ideas…a treasure trove, indeed.

    Here is our homeschool room as well:

    • mommahopper says:

      I LOVE you homeschool Room! You are so blessed to have such a talented husband! The desk idea was great and oh I would love to have chalk boards like that! Thanks for stopping by!

      • Thanks! Yes, my husbands creativity shows up quite strongly in my youngest, which is a wonderful thing, but oh. my. goodness. – keeping him in ‘materials’ to build his cute little projects is a challenge! lol Let’s just say he goes trough a lot of cardboard, sticks, staples, and packing tape. ^_^

  5. I so agree with you that simply just looking at organized homeschool areas definitely gives us the confidence that we too can create a similar space! When I am feeling discouraged or overwhelmed or simply just stuck in an organizing rut, I get on Pinterest or Google and browse away. It’s really a hobby I think. lol! :)

    • mommahopper says:

      LOL I think my hobby becomes ummm an addiction some nights! But I get some many great ideas, and I know where they are!

  6. I am getting so excited for this coming school year. Thanks for sharing some school room ideas.

  7. Douglas N Rachel Goff says:

  8. Thanks so much for this ultimate homeschool blog. Also, thanks for letting me know about the other Ultimate Subjects. I plan to thumb those subjects as well. There are so many great ones to view it will take me a while! Also, thanks for featuring my hopscotch rug! I pinned the main Ultimate page.

    • mommahopper says:

      Your welcomed! My kids now want me to make them one! They play outside but think it would be great to play inside doing the winter! What a great idea! I look forward to seeing how you first year goes!

  9. I love having all these ideas in one wonderful place!

  10. Hey thanks for the shout out! Your guide is great– I love seeing the different ways everyone sets up their schoolrooms. :)

  11. Brooke Shambley says:

    Thank you so much for including my design services on your list! Right now, I have switched to home organizational printables due to a move, but my Homeschool E-design will be up on my Etsy Shop soon. Thanks again!

  12. I really enjoyed seeing all these rooms! It always amazes me how homeschoolers design schooling into their homes and lives. One of my daughters saw the pictures and wants to use one of the color schemes in our school room now. Sounds like a good idea!

  13. Happy to hear! love your blog and your way of writing! Perhaps you will show me a few tips.
