Get Ready for School with These Remodeling Ideas!
As the school year approaches, it’s time to prepare your home for the upcoming changes. We have some smart and easy tips to make the transition smoother for you and your family.
Create a dedicated homework zone
Sick of cluttered kitchen tables and lost school supplies? Set up a designated area for homework.
You can use a bookshelf as a divider between two desks or utilize your child’s bedroom with a small desk and bookshelf combo. Don’t forget to organize school supplies in a portable container for easy access.
Designate a snack zone
When your kids come home hungry, it’s a relief to have a designated snack area. Use special baskets in the pantry and fridge to make organized space and keep healthy snacks easily accessible for them.
Manage shoes, jackets, and backpacks
Avoid the chaos of scattered items by creating a designated space for your kids to unload their belongings. Consider using hooks, a bench with shoe storage, or even lockers or cubbies for each child.
Stay organized with a calendar
Keep busy family on track of important dates by recording them on a digital or wall calendar. Place it in a common area where the whole family can see it to avoid missing any school events.
Keep essential items by the door
Avoid last-minute searches for important items by keeping a stash of essentials by the door. Whether it’s a brush, pen, or lunch money, make a list of must-have items and keep them within reach.
Organize school paperwork
Stay on top of school paperwork by designating a specific area for it. Use files for important documents and consider using a box for artwork and mementos. This way, you’ll avoid piles of paper cluttering your home.
Give bedrooms a mini makeover
Celebrate your child’s progress with a mini bedroom makeover. A simple change like a new bedspread, a fresh coat of paint, or adding a desk can make a big difference in their experience.
Upgrade your front porch
If your kids ride the school bus, make your front porch a relaxing space. Add new lighting, railings, or furniture like a porch swing to create a comfortable spot for you to enjoy while your kids wait for the bus.
Remodel your deck
Encourage outdoor play by remodeling or adding a deck. Studies show that physical activity improves academic success and emotional stability. It’s a great investment that adds value and functionality to your home.
Start the school year off right with these remodeling ideas that will make your home more functional and enjoyable for the whole family.
