The Importance of Classroom Design

by Ben Spray on April 21, 2021

The classroom is an important place where children spend a vast majority of their time. It's imperative that the learning environment be inviting and full of positivity to encourage both teaching and studying.

A more personalised space can be beneficial as well. Multiple students will have their own preference for how the desk should be situated and what they need in order to do their work most efficiently. This way, when a variety of preferences are taken into account it is possible that all children will feel more comfortable with the room which could lead them to perform better academically.

The design, mood, colors on the walls can affect not only how students learn but also what they are capable of doing in school as well; for instance, if there isn't enough light or space for maneuvering at desks it will result in difficulty concentrating which interrupts attention span and disrupts all other tasks being done by those individuals affected thus impairing performance overall. 

In primary school colour is an important aspect to consider as different colours can enhance a child's learning. For example, if there is a dark colour on the walls it will make them feel more tired and sleepy which could lead to problems in learning. The opposite effect would happen with light colours as they are thought to improve concentration by reflecting off surfaces around them making children feel brighter and happier about being at school, this is why we have a large range of coloured classroom furniture to help your pupils engagement within the classroom environment.

Ultimately, when designing a classroom for education purposes designers should consider how space impacts student's performance because it can have an impact not only on their happiness but also their ability to learn new things.

In conclusion, environment design has shown that students who study in classrooms designed with high levels of natural light performed better than those who did so without this advantage; furthermore different colors or paints within the room were found to influence behavior.
