Home. There are few single words in the English language that carry as much meaning as that one. There's no place like home. Home is where the heart is. You know all the sayings. Almost all the things we say about it are positive.

At the end of a long day, there is simply no place you'd rather be. But…

If you're now running through in your head the unkind things you've said about your home, it's OK. I know they say walls have ears, but that's just a figure of speech. And you can love your home but still hate some things about it. So what do you do when you hate something? You change it.


On A Tight Budget: Fixing The Little Things

So, you're tidying your bathroom, and you find yourself saying, absently, "I seem to be doing this more and more these days". Maybe you are, or maybe it just seems that way, but here's the thing. We are becoming more and more conditioned to expect space in our homes, and less clutter. Even scientists are saying so: http://sydney.edu.au/news-opinion/news/2016/01/14/clean-your-way-to-happiness--unpacking-the-decluttering-craze.html

We expect more space everywhere - look at any newly built commercial premises for proof. And your bathroom is, of course, the smallest room in the house. So when there's mess, you notice it instantly. It's right there and doesn't get lost in the vastness.

What Do You Do?

You've only got limited space to work in, so you can't go overboard. But a compact vanity in place of your washbasin allows storage for all the little things that make a bathroom chaotic.

Stepping It Up: Things That Make You Go Aaaargh!

There are a lot of little improvements you can make in a house, and together they make a big difference. Then there are bigger things that you can ignore for a while, but eventually, you have to do something.

For example, doors which looked sparkling bright when you moved in just don't stay clean. They get pushed, pulled, leant against, and before too long they dull and tarnish. It's depressing.

What Do You Do?

It depends on the aesthetic you've got going on house-wide. If you have a lot of muted colours, go back to basic with wood-effect doors. If you're going for a minimal look, go for a darker door - black can work really well.

Home Away From Home: Maybe You Need To Move?

On the other hand, maybe you've outgrown your current home. Or, if not outgrown, there’s just more you don’t like about it than things you do like. If that's the case, you need to look at going somewhere else. But is your ideal home out there? That's a question for www.serenityhomes.com.au/design-and-construction and similar. Maybe the home for you is one built for you?

What Do You Do?

Think about a home that suits both your needs and your dreams. If you're now a family of five, you'll need all the space you can get. If you're a child-free couple, space is still great but can be achieved in a smaller place. What does luxury mean to you? Push the boat out and plan the perfect home you'll be happy in for years to come. Then consult with an expert and make your dreams a reality.
