5 Back to School Home Improvement Projects

1. Update the kid’s bathroom and bedroom with an easy paint job

Adding an accent wall or touching up the paint in the living area is an easy and affordable way to bring a fresh change to your home when you’re feeling a bit dull. Before school starts, work with your kids to help pick out a new color for their bathroom and bedroom. A cool new room is just what every kid wants, and might encourage them to spend a little more time studying.


2. Remodel the study and work space

One major key to successful study habits is a quiet, organized space. Hire a contractor to help you design and build the perfect space for your student to focus. Alcoves or an unused wall is the perfect canvas to transform into a purposeful and functional area. A responsible contractor can work with you to help build your vision. Use our directory to find the right remodeling contractor for you.

3. Stay organized and on-time with a chalkboard wall calendar

School starts at 7 a.m. Sara has a dentist appointment at 1 p.m. Jack has soccer practice at 3 p.m. and you’re scheduled for a committee meeting at 6 p.m. It’s that time of year again! Stay organized with a “command center.” This is the place to keep track of your family’s busy schedules and stay organized throughout the year. A chalkboard wall in the kitchen or off the mud room keeps the family up-to-date and hopefully will reduce the stressful chaos!

4. Mom and dad, update your coffee station

It’s a simple equation.

Organized coffee station + faster coffee gets to you = happier mornings. Well, don’t we all wish it was that simple? An organized section for your morning coffee or tea will make those early mornings easier. It’s like your own coffee shop built into your kitchen. Sorry, barista not included.

5. Heating and cooling maintenance 

This is the best time to start thinking about weatherproofing your home, just before summer is officially over and the rain returns. Before the kids’ schedules take over the day and you forget, use the dog days of summer to schedule any heating and cooling maintenance you need so that you’re ready before the fall chill sets in.
