Using Flex Spaces for School Activities









If there’s one routine that families dread as the school year begins, it’s the battle of nightly homework assignments. Convincing kids to sit still and concentrate on homework after being in class all day is a struggle, but it doesn’t have to be. Creating a space that is comfortable, functional and dedicated entirely to them can not only make homework bearable, but it can convey the message that homework is just as important as the school day itself.

Flex spaces are common in new homes, whether they’re in the form of a spare bedroom or a home office. With Boone Homes, we invite you to customize your plan to personalize your new home to fit your lifestyle. Here are just a few ideas we’ve gathered on how to create the perfect homework area for your kids:


  • Many of our home plans feature a spacious loft area with plenty of natural light and quiet areas for concentration. The loft pictured here in our Kinloch Coach Homes is the perfect example of a tucked-away location far away from the hustle and bustle of the main floor. Furnished with a desk, an abundance of light and a comfortable couch, it’s the perfect space for reading long chapters in a novel for English class.


  • Several of our luxurious plans in Ellington Woods offer large offices with closing doors. These rooms can double as adult offices and homework spaces for children. Having a separate room for homework allows kids the ability to have storage for school supplies, books, projects and all other school related items. Having a room devoted to schoolwork also allows virtually limitless options on items that can be included in the room, while keeping it separate and well maintained.


  • An attic is typically used for extra storage space; however, our Brookstone plan shows just how useful this space can be. A homework hideaway upstairs may make homework seem like less of a chore! Just like any other room, you can personalize this space with the furniture that best works for you and your family’s schedule.

Our homes are built with families in mind. We know as times change, so will the use of flex spaces. That’s why we design each home with rooms that can serve multiple purposes. It’s important for children of school age to have somewhere quiet and relaxing to concentrate on their homework and projects.

At Boone Homes, we are now preselling in two new communities, Hawksgate at Bacova and Kinloch Villas. Both communities offer floor plans with incredible flex spaces and the ability to customize. To learn more about all Boone Home communities, visit
