School hallways, foyers, and other common areas are often underutilized spaces that hold great potential for extending student learning. If equipped with the right furniture and tools, these spaces can serve a wide variety of educational purposes.
For instance, students and teachers can use them as breakout spaces or extensions of the classroom, where groups of students might retreat to work on projects during class time. Students could also use these spaces for studying, tutoring, socializing, or independent reading—the possibilities are nearly limitless.
Because these are often high-trafficked areas, choose durable furniture with easily washable fabrics when furnishing them. To maximize the utility of these spaces, make sure you provide a variety of seating styles—or use modular furniture that students can pull apart to sit by themselves or move together to work in pairs or small groups.
