Labour-Saving Additions You May Enjoy at Home

Posted on: 11 April 2017

If you are feeling overwhelmed with getting all of the housework completed in your home, why not get a contractor to help you install some additions that help to make the household chores easier and more fun?

Laundry chutes

If you are sick of chasing the kids to bring their dirty clothes and bed sheets to the laundry, you could install laundry chutes in each room to encourage the kids to direct their own dirty laundry in the right direction. You can even install hoops over or above the chutes to make it fun to get the laundry into the chute and the whole way down to the laundry. This is a great way to make a dull chore easier to accomplish.

A slide between floors

If you are finding it hard to get the kids downstairs to have some breakfast before school, you could talk with a contractor about installing a slide between floors. A slide can make even the grumpiest of 'night owls' feel a little more cheery about getting to the kitchen table as quickly as possible.

Hidden rooms

If your kid likes to have a space that they keep messy and sprawl in, you may want to convert a nook of their room into a 'hidden room'. This allows you to close a door and ignore the mess while letting a kid have some personal space that they don't need to clean. Kids love having secret rooms, so you could enclose the nook in the room with a secret or hidden door so you can't see it from the outside.

In-room vacuum ports (or robot vacuum rechargers)

Life with children can involve a lot of crumbs and mess. Many parents find it hard to drag the vacuum from room to room to clean up those messes. Having built-in vacuums in each room or a recharging port so that you can have robot vacuums working around the clock can both help you keep things cleaner. This can also be super useful for anyone with pets — but be warned that if your kids leave small toys out these can clog or damage the motorised vacuum cleaners.

There are some simple and fun ways to make it easier to live with kids (and clean up any messes). Talk with a contractors about home renovations and options you could employ to keep your home kid-friendly and make it more efficient.
