Before revealing the final result to the client, Amy and Elizabeth set up a special treat near the entryway. Four colorful towels with matching monogrammed buckets were waiting for the children on their first visit to the completed home. "We're very detail oriented, so we really try and take care of everything," says Amy. "It was great. She was really touched."

This waterfront family vacation home in Galveston, Texas is stylish and family-friendly.

2. Tie in your beach towels. If you’re like me, your beach towel collection is probably a mishmash of uncoordinated, threadbare specimens. Keep an eye out for end-of-summer sales and treat yourself to new matching ones that you can hang with pride. (Check with local animal shelters to see if they can use your old ones.) Turquoise and lime towels can enliven a wall with beachy style. Towels: Target

If it's a mudroom at home, then it must be a sandroom at the beach. No matter what you call it, having a place to store everyone's towels and beach toys right at the back door is crucial. For limited space (or budget), this hook and bucket idea is so creative! For the beach, we like it even better than a built-in mudroom. Store flip-flops or beach toys and everyone can grab their things and go. More:Coastal Chic Family GetawayModern Beach House With a Custom TwistUsing Shells in Your Décor

Beach towels are one of my biggest summer pleasures. But many times when getting home from the pool, the children either leave them in the car on on their bedroom floors in a pile. Creating a little nook like the one shown here will make it easier to hang beach towels when you get home and will ensure they're dry the next time they're needed. Keep buckets or baskets below to contain sandals and sunblock.

Keep fresh towels and suits in a designated spot. Inside the door, a second set of hooks or pegs can hold fresh, clean towels ready to grab and go.

Side-by-side hooks. The lovely apple green and blue striped pattern adds loads of color play to this area; it also repeats the beach theme of the house. Hanging towels side by side on hooks lets you store more of them in a small space and gives each towel a chance to dry properly when unfurled.Tip: Add a cup of white vinegar (which removes excess detergent) to the rinse cycle once a month to restore towels' absorbency.

Don’t take your towel out of the bathroom. And definitely don’t take my towel out of the bathroom. I get it. You wore your towel out of the shower yesterday to get dressed. You threw the towel over the chair and forgot it when you showered today. The only towel there was mine, so you took it. Well, guess what? Now I’m standing here cold, naked and dripping!

Perhaps there is a place by a side door where grandkids and visitors can hang beach towels and get the sand off before coming inside. Good idea!
