If your home doesn’t really feel all that much like a home, you’re obviously going to want to change that sooner rather than later. It’s so common for homes to feel more like showrooms, and there are many mistakes that can lead to this situation, so you’re definitely not alone. But it’s certainly worth making changes because you and the rest of your family will get so much more out of the space if it feels homely and true to you.
Work on the Entrance
The first thing you should work on is the entrance to the home because this really sets the tone for how the rest of the home will feel and function. Do something modern by fitting a upvc porch by James Oliver. It adds a welcoming entrance space before you enter the home properly. You can then work on the home’s hallway and find ways to make it cosy and appealing.
Homes should be places that are comfortable and places where you want to spend time, so you should definitely find new ways to emphasise comfort in your home when you’re trying to make the place more homely. If you never really feel comfortable or at ease in your house, it’s never going to feel much like a home to you, so you do need to work on this.
Add Some Fresh-Cut Flowers
The general atmosphere and feeling in your home will impact how you feel about it. If you make it feel more natural, make it smell great and generally make it feel more appealing, it will make you enjoy spending time in the home more. One thing that can help you achieve all that is adding some fresh-cut flowers to your home. It’s definitely something to try out.
Work on the Scent and Air Quality
The quality of the air in your home is something you probably don’t think about, but you should. Using an air purifier can really help things and make you feel more relaxed each day in your home. You should also work on the scent by adding candles and baking fresh bread. As mentioned above, the fresh flowers will definitely help with this as well.
Hang the Art You Love on Your Walls
If there are some works of art in particular that you really like, you should make sure that they’re on display on your walls. It makes the walls feel alive, rather than bland and bare, which might have been the case previously. It’s also personal because your taste in art is very personal to you. So do what you can to find the art that you think works best for your space.
Not every house feels like a home, and that’s pretty sad if you stop to think about it. Don’t let the same happen to your property. By making the right changes and generally making the space feel more specific to you and your whole family, you won’t find it hard to turn your house into an ideal family home.
