Home Sweet Home, I Hate You So!

Do you sometimes get up and feel unhappy with your home? The wall color is not quite right, the heating is always too cold, and the showerhead drips. You’re trying hard to get used to it, but all things being as they are, you have to be honest with yourself: You just hate that house. It is supposed to be your home sweet home, but it really doesn’t feel that way. It’s too much of this and too little of that. It doesn’t work for you. You don’t find the strength to love your home. Worse, it doesn’t even feel homey to you. It’s time for it to stop! Let’s get things straight: It’s your home, if you hate the way it looks and feels, you can and should change it. Feeling comfortable at home depends on how much time and effort you are ready to invest to turn a house into a home you love.  



Your Home, Your Style
Your home is an extension of your personality. It reflects who you are and what you love. Therefore, styling your décor is key to creating a space that you can identify with. Indeed, the impact of design on the human psyche is undeniable. Styling your home to fit your taste will change dramatically the way you feel about it. If you’ve got an eye for sleek and clear shapes and gadgets, you’ll love the look of your home with the crisp and simple lines of a modern chic décor. The focus is on pure shapes and neutral colors, which gives you a lot of room to move. But maybe you have a hipster's heart? You love your independent coffee shop, and you’re a sucker for organic products? Have a look for industrial décors that repurpose urban elements and features with an organic simplicity.



You Can’t Love What’s Broken
You need to accept that a house is an evolving element. Sometimes, things break and stop working. If you don’t fix them, the atmosphere in the house will degrade and worsen. Being surrounded by things that can’t fulfill their functions is not only negative on the health of the property but it also impacts your mood. In short, if you’re struggling to get your air conditioner to cool the house down, it’s time to look for an ac repair company. If the tap drips, get a plumber to look at it. The more you look after your home, the more you can enjoy living here. If you let your house deteriorate, you will not be able to feel positive about it.


A Place Of Peace And Joy
Your home is your sanctuary. It’s a place where you feel safe and happy. But you need to work on building the right atmosphere for that. A calming house is a house where everything has its place. Organization is essential and starts in the foyer, which is the room that is the most likely to get cluttered. Smart foyer furniture will help to give a home to umbrellas, keys, mail, and coats. A tidy home is always a happier home: So it’s time to declutter and focus on creating space by removing anything that clogs up your home unnecessarily.

Walk through each room and see what you like or don't like about the room. Take notes and start to make changes. Even if you go slow, one room at a time, eventually you can have a home, sweet, home that you love.
