How to make a home out of a house

We’ve all heard time and time again the important of making a house into a home. Not everybody would agree on the same things when it comes to making a house into a home. Some might prefer high tech gadgetry around the home where others may prefer peace and simplicity.

Here are a few ideas that we’ve come up with which are true to almost any homeowner.


Exhibit your personality

When walking into someone’s home, you can often get a good idea of what they’re like as people. That’s because a home will always reflect the personality of the owner. There are a number of things you can do to project your personality into your home… some of which are under your control, some of which are not.

You can put up pictures of your favourite art, memories, musicians, film posters and other things that you enjoy. The colours of your walls, choice of flooring, style of furniture and number of pillows are all things that will reflect your personality. You may have already chosen all of the above without even thinking about it.

You may be a tidy person, or a messy person. It doesn’t matter as either way it’s going to make your house into a home, as it will be a place where you can truly be yourself.


Enjoy all of your space

Make the most of all of the space available to you in and out of your property. When it comes to living in your property, it will become boring very quickly if you are doing the same things in the same spaces, day in day out.

Use your table, sprawl out on the floor, cook, bake, clean, paint a picture... do something that forces you to interact with the things in your home. So often we're on autopilot that forcing yourself to break the same old routine can awaken your senses to how you'd like your space to function or embrace your hobbies and habits.

This will create a homely feel to your house.



What is considered entertainment is completely subjective. However, in a typical modern day home, a television is a must. This can keep you occupied during your downtime and will also be good for when you have guests over, as you can stick on a film or put on some background music whilst you socialise.

These days, laptops and tablets are a greatly convenient bit of tech that can help you stay connected to friends and family, as well as giving you access to almost any information you need via the Internet.

Not only is your home the hub for entertainment, but also it’s an information centre in which you can rely!  


Create positive memories

Homes are places where great memories are created as a result of positive things happening whether it’s because of the people you surround yourself with; or a place where you first learnt to cook; or a place where you’ve spent time celebrating achievements, milestones and other great things.

Create positive vibes in your home and it will become a place where you feel happy and enjoy spending time. This goes without saying, you should try to prevent any negative things from happening at your home, where possible.
