Now that the kids are back to school and you have a chance to breathe and survey the damage that the constant chaos of summer brings, it’s time for a few organizational tips from your friendly home improvement contractors of Delaware. By implementing these simple and mostly cost-free improvements to you home, you can make the transitions from school to home or vice versa a little smoother.
5 Great Home Updates for Back to School:
|1. Create A Landing Area for Kids & Parents to Stay Organized. Even if you don’t have an official mudroom, creating a space for family members to drop their shoes, boots, coats, backpacks, gloves, scarves, keys, sunglasses and sports equipment is paramount to keeping clutter under control and making early mornings more manageable. If everything your child needs to make a hasty exit is in the same place, it makes it so much easier to catch that bus!|
|2. Setup an Organized Study Space with Task List for Each Child. Having a distraction free space for your child to study and do homework can set a positive precedent. Giving them their own space to get creative juices flowing will relay the importance that you place on doing well in school.|
|3. Remodel Your Pantry for Easier Access to Lunch/Snacks & Dinner Prep. Make it easy to grab snacks on the go with see-through containers. Using baskets to store bulky items can help keep your pantry in order. Also creating a command center with the items you use daily along with a chalkboard for your grocery list can make shopping easier and keep your pantry stocked.|
|4. Remodel Your Laundry Room for Better Storage & Turnaround for Uniforms. Creating efficiency in your laundry area can make it easier to keep up with the daily demand for clean uniforms. If your laundry area is cramped, check out the ‘25+ Ideas for Small Laundry Spaces’.|
|5. Install A Keyless Entry System on Your Front Door to Prevent Lockouts. Eliminate the stress of rushing back home before the kids get home from school by installing a keyless entry lock. They’re easy to install, program and use. That means no more worrying about losing keys, or hiding them under the mat!|
