December 24, 2014

warning red square stampRegardless of the grade level you teach, it is imperative that the furniture in your classroom is safe and reliable for your students. When students are subjected to using furniture that is falling apart at the seams or has inadequate safety features, not only does it put them at risk for injury, but it also disrupts and impedes their ability to learn.

But how do you know when it’s time to seek out new furniture solutions? Since it’s not always obvious when it’s time to repair or replace your classroom furniture, we’ve put together a list of warning signs that suggest you need to; check them out below:

  • Screws, nails and hinges are loose or falling out of furniture pieces.
  • Furniture surfaces are frayed, rough or cracked.
  • Space is forming between cabinets and the wall that is holding it up.
  • Desk and table edges are sharp and/or pointy.
  • Free standing furniture such as book shelves are no longer sturdy and wobble at the touch.
