Making your house a home
If you are getting ready to move into your new Weston Dean Custom Home or are currently on the search for a Boerne custom home builder
to build your new home, turning your new house into a home is always key once you finally move in. A recent article in the Huffington Post shares 4 simple tips on how to turn your new house into your new home.
The first way to turn your new house into your new home is to figure out how you can customize the space you have, and optimize it at the same time. Builders do their best to construct homes to have the most livable floor plan that makes sense for everyday life, but until you are actually living in the home it can be hard to determine what works and what doesn’t.
Changing aspects of your home to suit your day to day live doesn’t have to mean renovation projects on your brand new home. It can be as simply as changing the color in a room to a brighter shade to help a room out that doesn’t have much natural light. Or if might be nice to divide up your open concept spaces with well-placed shelving that can also add an additional layer or storage or display to your new home.
Another great tip to give your house the “homey” feel that you’re after is to incorporate some plants into your home to give it that relaxed and alive feel. If it is hard to keep plants alive in your home, try just adding a nice floral arrangement to the centerpiece of the table to still give off that warm vibe.
The third tip to help turn your house into a home is to add some art to your home. Adding artwork to your new house will allow your personality and taste to shine through and immediately give your home another touch of who you are. Different ideas of art to bring in can be paintings, drawings, sculptures, even antique pieces or furniture or accessories that might have been passed down or have importance to you are another great option to add to your home.
Lastly and probably the easiest and quickest way to make your house feel like home is to represent your family in the home. Displaying photos of your family and loved ones throughout the home automatically give it the feeling of being yours. You can check out places like Pinterest for ideas on how you can create a gallery wall in your home. This has become a recent trend that incorporates family photos with other décor to add more interest and design appeal.
These 4 simple ideas will quickly turn your new house into a home.
