5 student-friendly home features to help kids succeed in school
Students at Canyon Falls thrive in our highly regarded schools in the Argyle ISD and Northwest ISD school districts.
When at home, kids can benefit from many student-friendly features offered by our homebuilders. From morning launch rooms to help everyone get out the door, to homework centers for afterschool ambitions, these thoughtful features will give young learners extra credit all day long.
Launch rooms. Whether you call it a morning launch room, drop zone or everyday entry, this feature is designed to help every member of the family get out of the door in the morning, and come back with equal ease. Typically located between the garage and the kitchen/utility room area, launch rooms include built-in backpack racks and other storage spaces where family members can quickly stow and grab their gear. Built-in benches make it easy to sit down and take off muddy shoes, and under-bench cubbies provide extra storage space. Launch rooms are offered by a growing number of Canyon Falls homebuilders, including Drees Custom Homes.
Homework centers. Built-in homework centers, like this one from Coventry Homes, are located next to the upstairs bedrooms, to provide kids with a dedicated space to complete their afterschool assignments. Builders provide ample surface and storage space, along with convenient power outlets right above the desktop.
Bedroom desk duty. Many model homes at Canyon Falls offer ideas for how to incorporate study space into kids’ bedrooms. In this Perry Homes model, the bed is flanked by a nicely sized desk on one side, and by a bookshelf on the other. The graphic cycling motif is sure to inspire and energize.
Family togetherness. Today’s family gathering areas are designed to promote peak family time, even if everyone is doing something different. Kitchen serving bars with knee space provide convenient places to get homework done, while other family members can work in the kitchen or hang out in the family room. This open kitchen from M/I Homes is a great example. Many builders offer built-in desks in the kitchen area, or even full-fledged pocket offices, which can do double duty as planning centers as well as homework havens.
School spirit. A fun school mural like this one from Landon Homes in Canyon Falls may not have a direct impact on homework and grades, but it can constantly inspire school spirit and the desire to achieve.
