5 Ways To Make Your House a Home This New Year

A house is not just a roof over your head; at least, when it’s your own house it shouldn’t. It’s important to make the place you spend so much of your time in feel like your own, so here we’ve put together a few tips to make your house feel like a home this new year.

  • Fill it with objects that reflect you

Though realtors love to advise homeowners to keep their homes neutral if they ever hope to resell, that is no way to live in your own home! Remember that you can always redecorate if and when you do sell, but make sure that in the meantime you fill your home with colours and objects that make you feel at home. Using a website like Rex originals is a great way to find stuff you love for a reasonable price, and you’ll soon see your personality coming out all around you. Hang pictures of happy memories, paint that statement wall, and put out your favourite ornaments. Decorate your sofas with those piles of cushions you love that your friend hates. It’s your home – make it feel like it!

  • Make sure every room is a pleasant environment

While not every room is one you’re going to spend a huge amount of time in, you don’t want any to be rooms that you actively dread going in. For example, in a laundry room, a bathroom, or a teenage boy’s bedroom it might be a great idea to invest in the best odor control system so you’re not assaulted with an unpleasant smell every time you try to use part of your house.

  • Make sure it suits your needs

Whether you’re a single person, a dog owner, a big family, a child free couple, or a caregiver the most important thing is to live somewhere that accommodates and celebrates your needs. While banisters along the walls might be unappealing to some, they can be life-changing for someone with mobility issues; a childfree couple might opt for separate offices where a family might have the children’s bedrooms. The most important thing is that your home is right for you and what you need.

  • Make sure you’re ready to have guests

Your home is primarily a place for you and your family, but it’s also somewhere you want others like your friends and extended family to feel welcome. If you have the space, a well made up spare room is a lovely addition to your home. Another way to make guests feel at home is to have equipment like crockery and food like biscuits ready for them to use and enjoy when they pop around to enjoy your company.

  • Paint the front door

This may be an oddly specific suggestion, but it’s definitely a good one. Painting your front door is really putting your mark on the place – especially if you go for a bolder colour, but of course this is something you usually have to clear with the neighbours. Walking home after a long day at work and seeing your very own front door is like giving the house a way to welcome you inside.

Your house is your castle, so make sure it’s somewhere you feel at your best – and most importantly, most like yourself.
