How to Turn Houses into Homes

family of four running on a grassy field with the outline of a home surrounding themThe keys are yours and the moving company is taking your stuff out of the truck. It is time to turn the house you bought into the home you love. After all, a house is just a structure you live in. It provides for your basic needs and safety. However, a home is a place that provides for both your mental and emotional needs. It is a place you look forward to being in, in order to get away from the outside world. Santana Homes is here to help.

Create Everlasting Memories

Turning houses into homes does not cost money, just time. That is, time spent making memories within the house’s walls and roof. Fill your home with people and laughter as often as possible. Resist the urge to run away every chance that you get. While you may have purchased the home because it has beautiful picture windows or the perfect island in the kitchen, that won’t be what you remember. You will remember looking out the windows waiting for guests to arrive for your spouse’s surprise party and the cake that you made at the island that you left out and the dog ate.

Stop Worrying About What Everyone Else Will Think

If your furniture doesn’t match or maybe there is no furniture yet, or it seems as if your house is more cluttered than the other homes you have visited, stop worrying. If you are always dreaming about what you want your home to look like, then you are not living in it. Instead, embrace what have and go with it. No furniture means that you have more room to invite more people over. Shabby, old furniture means that spills and accidents do not cause stress. So, pour yourself another glass of red wine.

Decorate with You in Mind

It’s important that you have a space of your very own. Even the old woman in the shoe had a chair that was all her own. Regardless of how many people you are sharing your home with, carve out a spot that you can make your own. It can also be the place where you put out your mementos, if you so desire.  A new home is a fresh start. Give everything a place so that you can stay neat and organized. Also, set up a cleaning schedule so that the place stays clean, as well. Speaking of cleaning, it’s a good place to splurge. Put out some fancy soaps and buy the best products to keep your new digs spic and span. This may be a good time to buy new towels, as well.
