Love Life In Your Home



Life is meant for living, and one of the places we spend most of our time is in the home. It might be because we’re lounging around in bed, sleeping the night away, having guests around, or even just getting some quality time during the day. Yes, we might have to drag ourselves away from it for 8 or more hours a day, but when we are there, we want to try and enjoy life as much as possible. One way of doing that is to focus on your home, and make the improvements or adjustments that it might need doing. A home is a work in progress, but there’s so many different things that you can do to make sure it’s perfect to you. Some you might not be able to do right away, but others are some that we know you’ll be dying to do before the summer time comes around again. So, here’s a few little things that you could add or change, that we think will help you to love life in your home.

Feeling Comfortable




There’s nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable in your own home. But that’s exactly what can happen if it just isn’t the way you want it, or if a few things are out of place. It depends what type of weather you’re having, because for us in Australia, we’re about to head towards the blistering summer once more. The weather seems to be drying up a little, which is one of the first signs that we’re not too far away from the heat we all know and love. However, the heat we know and love can bring some troubles in our homes, especially if your house is facing so that the sun is at the back of it or on the bedrooms all afternoon. It’s near enough impossible to keep the house cool, even if there is a breeze. So what is our knight in shining armour through the summer? It’s aircon. If you don’t have some installed already, we highly recommend that you get some, ready for the intense summer heat. It can be used as a heater during the colder months, so it is the whole package if you need it to be. We know it might cost a fair bit to run, but that’s why you use it at the right times, such as during the night. You can put a timer on them so that they go off at a certain point in the night as well.




Another way you can feel more comfortable is to clear the air a bit. You could spend all day cleaning your home from top to toe, and it still wouldn’t change the fact that there are going to be little germs lying around. This isn’t due to how clean you are, it’s just down to the fact that homes are so prone to bugs and germs. If you have a young family, consider getting air quality testing companies to review your home, and suggest ways that the air quality can be improved. You might be shocked at just how many bugs you have been living with! This will help to improve your own peace of mind, and it’ll help to reduce the chance of your family getting ill.




Family Vibes




Loving life is all about spending it with your family. As you’re able to watch your children grow, we know all of the major milestones and memories will happen in the home, so making it as family friendly as possible is so important. If your children are starting to get a little older now, you’ll know how hard it is to stay connected with them. If they’re going through their teenage years, then we definitely know that you’re going to feel a gap forming between the family. So, one way of bringing it all together is by creating a little family room. It could be the living room, or you could dedicate a spare room to it. It has to be full of things that you can use during a family night. It could be games consoles, board games, or just a comfy layout so you can all relax and watch films together. If you want to love life with your family, you’re going to have to organise weekly family nights, where you can all sit down and have a joke around. If you have younger children, you won’t have to worry. But would you could do is use a spare room, if you have one, to create a playroom. It’ll engage their minds, and you can join in with the play as and when you want to!




Expand The Home




Now, we did say that you might not be able to do some of our suggestions for a long while, but this is definitely something that you should ponder on. Expanding the home is not only going to be beneficial to you in terms of giving you more space, but it’s also going to be beneficial to you financially in the long run if you did eventually sell the house. The more money you invest, the more money you’re generally going to get out of it. You could extend to add a new room, a bigger kitchen, or a new bathroom. It all depends on your needs at the time, and what you think will add the most value to your home.




Dreamy Decor


We might as well finish with something that’s going to leave you loving your home, as well as your life. There really are some dreamy decor ideas out there, just looking at sites such as Pinterest will point a few out for you. We understand that sorting out your decor is a pain in the bum, so just dedicate two weekends to it, that’s all you’ll need. During the first weekend, you should plan what you would actually like to change. Whether it be the accessories that you have, or the actual wallpaper or paint that you have on the walls. During the second weekend, blitz the house and getting the decorating done room by room. If you need an extra weekend, then so be it. But don’t leave a room half finished, it’ll only drive you bonkers!
