It’s not the heat.. it’s the humidity, right? This week marks our first blistering heat of summer days here in St. Louis. There is nothing like it! As great as this hot, sticky weather is, it is at this time that we also learn to appreciate a little thing called ‘air-conditioning.’ There are plenty of ways to stay cool this summer indoors that are more productive than plopping on the couch with your family in front of the TV.
With the kids home (hopefully for not much longer!), it is our job as parents to keep their brains active and keep their creative juices flowing. We are in the midst of a very different summer than usual, so there is no doubt that you are looking around your home more than usual with eyes on what needs to be sorted through and organized.
A few things that I like to do with my kids during the summer are create photo albums, scrapbooks and have arts-and-crafts days. These ideas get the most out of your time with your family while at the same time organizing your memories and vacation mementos. This summer instead of hiring a painter, I hired my daughter to paint our garage bathroom – gave her a little extra spending money and the creative time was amazing for her! As she grows, learning home skills is always worth the time.
You might be thinking about how messy a scrapbooking project seems! “That sounds great, but I’m not giving up my dining room table for the whole summer for photos, tape, and paint.” My advice? You need to designate somewhere in your home to keep all of your craft materials organized and within easy reach. That’s where I come in! Saint Louis Closet Co. not only organizes closets, but we can tailor organization solutions for work spaces too, especially spaces with a lot of materials like scrapbooking.
Meet the Craft Center
Customizing a space to fit exactly what your needs are will maximize the efficiency of your home. Let your kids think outside the box and color outside the lines with a craft center featuring a sturdy countertop. Craft centers are so versatile that you can use them all year round – from everything related to scrapbooking in the summer to doing all of your wrapping and organizing for birthday and holiday gifts.
Summer should be a family-fun-filled season, so don’t spend your time digging through your home looking for a board game or clearing the clutter just to get started on a project. Keeping your children’s minds active is key to making sure that they can jump right back into school mode without skipping a beat.
Home Office Solutions
SLCC also has accessories for home offices, including everything from sliding computer trays and filing drawers to vertical binder shelves and custom cabinets. If you run a business out of your home or if you just need somewhere to sit, organize and pay your bills, a home office from Saint Louis Closet Co. is exactly what you need.
