It’s that time of year again – back to school! Starting back to school can be a little stressful for both students and parents. Switching from the laid-back fun in the sun of summer to rules, homework, and routines can be a big jump for both parents and children. How will you keep your home organized? We put together some of our favorite spaces for home management, kids homework and more to make the transition easier.
This space in the Grand Homes model in Garland is conveniently attached to the kitchen and can serve as a functional space for mom and kids alike. It is well lit, has a large work surface, and has tons of storage – perfect for homework, projects and day-to-day organizing. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and this work-zone allows for kids or mom to have a little privacy while still being accessible if needed.
Home management centers like this are great places to post all calendars of school activities, assignment due dates, sports games, meetings, vacations, and lunch menus. Everyone can update and check schedules easily, and it helps you stay on top of things and start establishing a routine.
Upstairs kid’s computer lofts are becoming more and more popular, and many Grand Homes have added this feature. This is a great alternative to the kitchen because it is quieter space for your kids todo their homework without being locked in their bedrooms, and it works great if they are working on an assignment with a friend or classmate.
Other home management center ideas include a cozy nook under the stairs like this one, at our Grand Homes in Frisco model. Or perhaps this desk open to the kitchen in the Chadwick Farms model in Roanoke. Instead of dreading the added clutter this time of year brings, enjoy it by making the perfect space for your kids to do homework and staying organized in your home!
