It’s that time again! Southwest Florida kids and teens are back at school. While you may already realize how tight your schedule is going to be and how much gas your car is going to need now, you may not have thought about how your home can make the school year easier for you. It’s true! With a few changes or additions, your house itself could make getting out the door in the morning or entertaining the rest of the science club a lot easier for your family. Consider just a few ideas:
#1 A mudroom for shoes and backpacks. Many homes up north have mudrooms, and they are finally growing in popularity here in Southwest Florida too. Come and visit our Arthur Model, and be sure you notice this room in between the garage and the kitchen of the home. It’s a great spot for kids to take off their school shoes and drop their backpacks. When it is time to run out the door tomorrow, everyone will know exactly where their stuff is without a home-wide search! The Arthur, which also houses our Model Home Center, is located at 4402 Chiquita Blvd. S, Cape Coral, FL 33914. It is open Monday through Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 12-5. Give us a call at (239) 766-4150 or email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org and schedule a personalized visit.
#2 A great guest bathroom. Whether it is for study sessions or a Friday night slumber party, you can expect the school year to bring a lot of visitors to your home. When you have extra guests in your home, your guest bathroom better be able to keep up! If your current bathroom doesn’t look nice or can’t handle a couple of showers in a row, it may be time to remodel your bathroom. This room is often the quickest and most affordable to remodel, which makes a guest bathroom remodel a great option for busy families who need more from their current homes.
#3 A pantry and fridge full of kid-friendly food. A hearty breakfast, nutritious lunch packed in a lunchbox, a quick afternoon snack- your kitchen is very busy this time of year! If you don’t have a pantry big enough to stock a lot of snacks and a fridge that makes it easy for kids and teens to help themselves, you have a big problem. Today’s top refrigerators have dedicated drawers for their drinks and snacks, stainless steel finishes, and a much bigger capacity than older models. Not every household needs a supersized refrigerator, but if you have to feed a few growing teens (and a handful of their closest friends!), you will certainly appreciate one with maximum storage capacity.
This is only the beginning!
