Back to school season is bittersweet as it means summer will soon come to an end, but there are many things to look forward to as well. Now that the kids are back in school you will have more time to think about those home improvement projects that have been put on the back burner. If you find yourself an empty nester, you may have already been thinking of the ways you can transform your space. Here are a few ideas to help you out.
Get the Kids in Order
Back to school can be a hectic time to keep track of all the supplies needed and paperwork coming home withing those first few days. A designated command center is extremely helpful in keeping everyone organized. This area could have space for each family member to hold backpacks, jackets, shoes, paperwork, etc. This area could also double as a homework center with built-in desk space.
The Efficient Kitchen
For many families back to school may mean a full calendar of kids practices, games, or other activities. It can be hard to get everyone on the same schedule for a family dinner. It can be even more unmotivating to cook when you have a less than functional kitchen or are lacking space to cook. Now may be the perfect time to make your kitchen work for your family. Storage and organization is key to a successful kitchen. Try adding undercounter refrigeration drawers to keep the kids go to snacks separate. Add a large island for quick serve meals.
Empty Nest, Unlimited Options
Having an empty nest can be bittersweet, but there should be no guilt in reclaiming you space. No more cleaning up after the kids and making room for their belongings. It’s time to take back your space and make it your own. Will you transform the extra bedroom into an office, craft room, new home gym, or media room? The possibilities are endless now that the kids are out of the home.
