Back to School? Let Your Home Help.

Posted: August 27, 2014 at 9:30 am by: NewHomesGuide

The new school year is here and that means getting the kids up and out the door, then back home in time for homework, dinner and bedtime—it’s not easy.

What if your home could help?

Many builders are trying to make that happen, creating design features that help you get through the day with ease and efficiency. You’ll find similar elements called a variety of different names, but here are a few to look for.

Study Center
You want to make sure the kids are actually getting their homework done, right? But dinner’s got to get done, too. Many new homes make it easy for parents to do both at the same time. Study centers—spacious desk areas located in or just off the kitchen—are the perfect solution, letting you cook and keep an eye on the kids. It’s also a great spot to organize your mail or bills when you come home each day.

Mudrooms and Drop Zones
Bookbags. Sports bags. Gym bags. Purses. Briefcases. It’s a lot to keep track of. You’ll need a system.

Fortunately, a popular feature of many new homes is an expanded mudroom or drop zone, complete with counters, hanging hooks, cubbies and more. All are designed to help you organize your life and get you in and out the door faster.

Charging Station
It’s a high-tech world and that means devices and cords everywhere. To help you keep it simple, consider a charging station with plenty of outlets and plenty of room to charge your phones, tablets, laptops and more when you’re not using them.
