When Does a House Become a Home?

Posted by Holli McRae on 7/8/15 9:00 AM

Why is it that certain places feel like home right away, but others may take months or even years before they feel like yours? Is it the location, something about the home itself or something else? Here we’ll explore these questions and some ways to get settled at home. Please add your own experiences in the Comments!

Making new memories. If you really feel unsettled in your space, embrace the fact that it may just take more time. There is, however, a way to speed this process along: Use your home more. Invite friends over for dinner. Host your child’s birthday party at home instead of going out. Have the family over for a holiday celebration. As you create new memories in your home, it will become dear to you. It’s as simple as that.
