While summer may have just started, it is never too soon to start thinking about the return of the school year. Making the transition from summer living to the rigors of the school year can be a difficult transition for any child but the Creston News Advertiser reports that simple design changes to any kid's bedroom can make all the difference when September comes along.

"Many studies have shown the correlation between academic achievement and an environment well-designed to facilitate learning activities," expert Todd Imholte told the news source. "Kids' rooms need to be a place where they can relax and be themselves, yet also study without distractions."

Experts say that perhaps the most crucial aspect of a child's bedroom is that it provides them with enough rest. A bed is naturally a large component when it comes to getting ample sleep, but window treatments can have a big impact as well.

The Mayo Clinic recommends keeping the room cool, dark and quiet to facilitate sleep. One way to help is by hanging honeycomb shades which can be especially effective at keeping a room dark. Honeycomb shades are also helpful when it comes to temperature control.
