Preparing for summer projects!

Updated: May 28

 Schools are almost out for summer! It’s the perfect time to upgrade your classroom spaces.

Here at Spaceforme we have helped and supported thousands of schools with their summer projects, and have picked up some tips and tricks along the way.

The key point is to prepare! It sounds so simple, but year on year we have panicked schools and resellers needing chairs two days before the children return! Avoid the stress by getting your orders in early for delivery that suits you.

When preparing consider design, functionality and cost per use, sometimes the cheapest furniture to buy will work out more expensive in the long run. The design of your classroom can have a huge impact on children’s mood and academic achievement, whether you switch up the layout or change the colour scheme it is beneficial to research how this will affect the learning environment.

Once you have researched and decided what you would like to have, it is time to look at your budget, you should have been allocated a certain amount of the yearly budget for renovations or upkeep of the school. It’s now time to pitch your case and secure the funds. Gather a well-prepared proposal, discuss the benefits of these upgrades, outline the goals, show your design plan, break down the costs and justify these upgrades.

The next step is to source your products. Summer is an extremely busy period for manufacturers and resellers, so ensure you get in there early to secure the delivery date you want. Here at Spaceforme, we work with trusted resellers worldwide to get our products to you as quickly and efficiently as possible. We strive to never make a promise that we can’t keep, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that we deliver on that promise.

Now your furniture has been delivered successfully, it is time to add the finishing touches – this is where the hours of Pinterest scrolling pay off (we’ve all been there!) Use different fabrics, patterns, colours and textures to add interest to the room, look at creating different zones for different styles of learning and most importantly, have fun with it! Your classroom could be the area that you spend the most time in, so make it an environment where you and your students feel uplifted, productive and happy.

Upgrading your classroom is an important task but with the proper planning and the right people, the process will be seamless.
