I have had a school room ONCE, and I found the room to be more trouble to keep clean and orderly than I did functional. We like to be in the hub of things when we are schooling. Often I am multi-tasking even if it's just cooking, so keeping our books together is actually more important to the way we function than an actual room. I do like the idea of a schoolroom with decorated walls and space! I just don't want to keep it up, AND I like sitting in my recliner. My kids like the couch and chairs!
When they were younger we had wooden armed school desks that we sat in our den, but in the last two homes we've schooled right here in the living room just like we did when they were small. The only difference is that when they were littles I schooled them at the piano bench with tiny kid chairs on each end and ME in the middle! It worked pretty good for K and first grades. I could work between them both helping them both as they needed me!
everywhere is school" attitude! This attitude definitely came as part of a 10 year process and wasn't overnight.
