Why is education furniture so important? Research suggests that the physical surroundings can have a huge impact on both pupils and staff and the way they learn and teach. A well designed space is said to make it easier for pupils to concentrate and stay focused and for staff to manage the class and monitor students.
At Whitespace we believe that the design of the teaching environment should encourage and inspire; it should include a flexible layout with ‘fit for purpose’ education furniture.
We appreciate that design, space planning and choosing the right furniture for your school can be a little overwhelming to the inexperienced, that’s where we come in.
We feel for a learning environment to be successful it should make full use of the space available. Students and staff should be able to move around the room safely and comfortably. The education furniture should be highly durable and take into consideration the age range of the students, as well as being suited to the subject being taught.
In addition to providing desks and chairs, provision for storage should also be taken into account, not just for books and stationary but also a place to store personal belongings, such as coats and bags.
