St. Louis Home Builder Provides Options for New Residents to Organize for Busy Times

As summertime fun gives way to the bustle of fall, your calendar is no doubt filling up with an abundance of exciting entries for school schedules, athletic events, family gatherings and holiday celebrations. It is a busy time for everyone, and a great way to get the most out of the season is to upgrade high-traffic areas in your home with organizational, function-minded features.

Soon, bulging backpacks, muddy boots, bulky jackets, sacks of groceries and stacks of mail will be making their way through your door everyday. Taking a few preemptive steps in organizational design can help keep common areas in order so that your house can serve as the sanctuary you and your St. Louis home builderdesigned it to be. 

Set a Tidy Tone

Designating exact areas for all of your items can set the tone for an organized home.You can prevent cool-weather gear from being strewn about the house by upgrading your mudroom or back entry with organizational must-haves. A built-in bench positioned below rows of hooks can be a welcome addition to await rain boots, coats, and book bags. An additional section of your entryway can also be assigned added storage for indoor shoes and slippers.  

Organize the Entryway

If you have a large household, you can avoid the chaos that comes with the fast pace of fall by upgrading your entryway with a set of built-in shelves or drawers. Also, installing personal cubbies is a great organizational addition to hold car keys, purses, shoes, lunch bags and other often misplaced grab-and-go items for individual family members. Imagine an orderly arrangement that conveniently stores personal belongings in the same place every day.   

Equip the Household Headquarters

The epicenter of home activity is usually a common locale such as the kitchen, an auxiliary dining area or the family room. Upgrade your command center with a desk or specifically designed drawers and cabinets. Designate specific places for incoming personal mail, business letters and important documents. 

A dry erase board and family calendar situated centrally and accessible to all family members is a great tool for keep everyone on track and on time. Important dates and times are easily viewed at a glance and easily added including sports games, extracurricular events and school tests as well as upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and parent teacher conferences.
