                                            10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                                            10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                                            Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

                                            Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

                                            1. Make the Windows Your Own

                                            When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

                                            One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

                                            2. Put up Some Art

                                            If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

                                            Advertising

                                            Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

                                            3. Improve the Aroma

                                            A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

                                            Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

                                            4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

                                            A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

                                            There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

                                            5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

                                            If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

                                            Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

                                            6. Improve Your Air Quality

                                            One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

                                            The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

                                            7. Fill it with Plants

                                            Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

                                            Advertising

                                            They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

                                            8. Change the Doorknobs

                                            Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

                                            Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

                                            9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

                                            There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

                                            Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

                                            10. Fresh Cut Flowers

                                            You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

                                            You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
