Prepare for back-to-school season with organized wall hooks and other home hardware updates.

Getting back into the school routine can be challenging for families after a long summer vacation. The hectic lifestyle that comes with balancing work and school also means that it can be difficult to keep things organized and find space in your home to store all school supplies, sports equipment, and more. You may be surprised to learn that a few home hardware updates can help you quickly tackle the new school year. Consider the following installation ideas to create a more organized and attractive home design. 

Update Your Entryway or Mudroom

Returning to school means your kids will come home with backpacks, lunch bags, shoes, jackets, and umbrellas that need to go someplace. To reduce mess and increase your organization, you can update your home mudroom or entryway with wall hooks designed to hold every child’s jackets and bags. Having a designated space for their things will help eliminate before-school chaos and reduce dirt and mess tracked in after school. 

Organize and Update Closets

Back to school and the change of seasons typically means updating your family’s wardrobe or changing out seasonal clothing. New home hardware updates can help you more efficiently organize your closet for more or heavier clothing. You might add new hooks or closet rods to create more space or update the appearance of your closet. 

Create a Study Area 

You can create a designated study area to encourage your kids to do their homework in one area rather than throughout the house. In addition to adding a desk and comfortable chair, you can add a small dresser or cabinet to the area to hold study supplies. Adding hardware made of kid-friendly materials or ones that are easy for kids to grip can help make this space more resistant to the wear and tear kids can put on furniture. 

Update an Empty Nest

If your kids have gone away to college and won’t be living with you regularly anymore, you might transform your child’s old bedroom or study space into something new. You can install shelves for a craft room and update the door locks and switch plates for a refresh after years of use. You might even find more home hardware updates to make if you want to turn your new “empty nest” into a refreshed and revived home.
