Create That Feeling of Home
Moving to a new home is like having a blank canvas. Whether you’ll be moving all your personal belongings and furniture from your previous home, or starting afresh, here are some ideas to create that feeling of home in your new dwellings.
Color – What kind of mood do you want to create in your new home? Colors have an effect on how people feel. In the bedrooms you’ll want to feel relaxed, whereas in the living room or dining room, the mood could be more uplifting. Color will set the mood.
Furniture – If you’re moving furniture from your old home, finding where to place each item in your new home is a sure way of making it feel like home in no time. If you’re bringing in new furniture, choose items that embody what “home” means to you, and anyone living in the space.
Art and photos – Placing and hanging pieces of art around the new home will add that element of your artistic style. In addition, having photos of loved ones, or other memorable experiences around the house, along with any items that hold importance can help create that feeling of home.
Soft furnishings – Adding these extra touches to a new space can really create that feeling of home. Think about the colors and textures of any rugs, pillows, or throws that you might want to add in your new home.
Plants – For a little bit of nature in your home, don’t forget plants!
