3 Great Household Items for Life with Teenagers

teensIf you live with teenagers, you know that your kids are always leaving a mess behind for you. As they create loads of laundry and eat through the food in your refrigerator, you may start to feel more stress as a parent. However, Designer Appliances has numerous household items that can make it a little easier to get through the teenage years with your kids. While you might not agree on new technology and clothing, helpful appliances are items that the entire family can get behind. Here are some items you might want to introduce into your home to make it easier for you and your teens to get by daily.

1. Microwave

There are going to be days where you simply feel like you can’t satiate your teenagers’ growing appetites. For this reason, you might want to leave them to gather snacks on their own throughout the day to supplement dinner. Investing in a microwave for the entire house to use can reduce the amount of time you have to spend in the kitchen cooking on a daily basis. Not to mention, virtually anyone can operate a microwave, which is key when it comes to teenagers who might not have the best skills when it comes to preparing food! Whirlpool models often have 1,000 BTU of power for quick cooking.

2. Freezer

Perhaps you’re the type of parent who prefers to make meals ahead of time, then freeze them for a later date. If this is the case, you’re going to want a reliable freezer in your home to serve your entire household. Frigidaire models have automatic defrosting capabilities and are freestanding, meaning they can be installed in virtually any area of your house for the ultimate convenience.

3. Dryer

If you have teenage kids, you know how much laundry they can create on a weekly basis. For this reason, it’s a good idea to invest in a new dryer to help you tackle the load. Models from Maytag have nine different drying cycle options, as well as steam drying. The features of these dryers can help you get your clothing washed and dried in a short amount of time so you can get back to what you enjoy doing most.

Whether you have one teenager at home or several teens, these items can help you get through these challenging years as a parent.
