    Our school area is in the basement, so unless visitors go down there, they probably wouldn't know.  We've had service people come to the house during the day and head downstairs, so they saw the kids working.  Also, if the kids are upstairs in the living room or family room working on a book assignment, I guess someone could assume that we homeschool.

    Maybe. I try and keep everything in its bin, bucket, or on a shelf but currently things are all over.

    Yes, they would see kids at home during the day doing educational work. Other than that, no. 

    I am excited about a space that we are renovating into an art room / homeschool storage room. However, it is not a room that anyone would normally access when visiting (even though it's on the first floor), and even if someone did see it, they wouldn't think "homeschool".

    Maybe. I have an area off my living room (it's just one big room, really) that is set up with two desks, a little school desk my mother refurbished, and a tiny table with benches, plus my china hutch filled with our HS stuff, though you cant see the stuff inside unless you walk up to it. They might guess homeschooling, they might guess just young kids with an art area.

    Probably not, they'd just think we were auditioning for the show Hoarders.

    Probably if they went downstairs where we school. We usually leave things out during the day. I put things up where visitors won't be able to see the actual work. I like privacy.

    We have a room like that! I guess in other people's homes it might be referred to as a 'dining room'...lol...but we have our meal table in our kitchen and the homeschool room it outfitted with the bookshelves, futon, etc.
