Your home is where you retreat to at the end of each long and difficult day at work. There’s no better feeling than walking through your front door, taking off your shoes and work clothes, and finally relaxing. However, when you feel like a stranger in your own home, it takes the excitement and the relaxation part away from the end of a long day. Nobody should feel like that in their own home, so if you’re looking for ways to make your home more like your own, check out these easy ways to make your home your very own!
Avoid landlord anger
If you live in a privately rented home, it’s unlikely that you will be able to make large changes to the decoration without making your landlord angry and also risking losing your home. However, it doesn’t mean that you can’t make your home more to your style. Consider hanging artwork around the place instead of wallpapering or painting the walls so that you’ve got a personalised touch to it. Other ideas include:
Ornaments that match your personality
Rugs to make your home more cosy
Lamps to change the ambience
Mirrors to make rooms seem larger
Curtains rather than blinds to add more personality to the place
Throws and cushions for your sofas
Buy your home
The best way of turning your home into a place that’s truly yours is by buying your own home. If you live in a social rented accommodation, you can usually buy it from the housing association after a period of time. Finding a deposit is now easier than ever thanks to mortgageloans.co, so you don’t have to worry about being stuck in a home that’s not yours. Once you’re on the road to owning your home, you can personalise it however you want.
Tantalize your senses
If buying your home isn’t for you, or it’s simply not possible at the moment, then why not make it more homely by appealing to your senses? Filling your home full of aromas can instantly change the way that you feel at home. So, why not dot some candles around the place to light when you’re home, or even buy a super scented fabric conditioner so that when you’ve got clothes drying, you feel more at home than ever?
Flowers make any room more homely
Finally, flowers can brighten up anyone's day when they enter a room, so why not fill your home full of flowers and plants? Not only do they look and smell great, they improve the air quality in your home too. It’s also proven that people who keep flowers and plants are generally happier people.
