A house is simply material structure erected out of matter but when family and emotional bonds are added to this it turns into home.Home is that place where we flourish our emotions, desires, aspirations and dreams --------our body is house but our heart where lives our lover/beloved is home.
A home Sweet Home. This is possible when lot of understanding, love, sincerity and caring is there among the people living in a house. Basically house is a structure of walls and roof but when we live in it in terms of God's wish, we make it a heaven for ourselves. Parents taking care of their children and kids playing with their parents learn the up bringing and gradually they become more responsible with the span of time. When the love is shared and the faith with each other is shown by each of them , the home becomes a sweet home.
You can make a house a home when you put your things away. Put your clothes on the shelves, towels on theirs, cleaning products under the sink. Enjoy how they look. Maybe things can get moved around to suit you better.
Clean it all up so it's shining, using nice cleaning products with pleasant smells, even if there are only a few things in it.
Buy a pretty vase and put flowers in it. Go to the thrift stores to see what little vases they have you could use for flowers, to make a feature out of it.
Until you have small lamps you like and some lighting you enjoy, put candles about.
Have a sudsy bath and make a comfortable bed with clean sheets and get in it, with your TV, or radio or lap top. Buy a cushion for your bed, some slippers and mat for the floor to stand on when you get out of the bed.
Buy a cork board for your kitchen and begin to stick things on it, photos, cards, recipes. Put a magnet character on your refrigerator.
Say your prayers, or meditate - in some way commune with what is good and bring it into your home.
Make a lovely meal and serve it on a nice plate and sit at your new table and see what you have around you, see what you like. Put a candle on the table, put a flower, put a cushion on your seat.
Put your name on the door!
Invite friends to a small house warming.
A house asks things of us and becomes a home when we give things to it. It may have cost us sacrifice already to move into it. It will eventually become a home because you are living in it and you are getting to know it - while it gets to know you.
It isn't easy making a house a home. I've known this many times. Yet, the house does become a home, in time and with care. This is a very very good question.
Thank you. I do feel proud of my home always. Your view is exactly what i feel and its nice to know someone in this world also thinks like me. Every materialistic thing also creates a home with our caring touch on it.
Thank you! It's very lovely to be proud of our homes. That caring touch is what does it.
Many thanks to all of your for supporting my choice . It feels great really.
God bless you all
heart is where the home is, a house is made into a home once any family lives together sharing their experiences, from good to bad and in helping each other to love and have special moments, in making a home into a lovable and cozy place to be.
An empty house is not a home. A home is where dwellers bond in certain times or most times (not just the time when everyone heads to bed). A home is where and when family members share the love of being together, the joy of unity in family gatherings, meal times of home cooked gastronomy, or even during relaxes and plays. A house is a home when your front door welcomes visitors; a cozy welcoming aura fills your house starting from the host's sincere and thoughtful invitation. A home is where family and friends gather like our children bringing their friends over and do not mind our presence around the house. A home is where parents look after the welfare of their children in their homework, activities, and successes and even in needs and shortcomings. We always look forward to coming home. Why? Because there is NO PLACE LIKE HOME.
To me there is only one ingredient missing between a house and a home: Love! It doesn't have to be romantic love or the love between parent and love or pets. It can be as simple as surrounding yourself with the the things and memories that mean love to you!
LIVING in it, filling it with one's loved ones (while possible), one's own love and interests, one's treasures - both the reminders of precious people and memories, one's landmarks, but especially - the aura of one's self are what make a building into a home.
It's important to be aware of some realities if one is healthy and expects to live long and well. So, even if one lives in it alone, the home one's made remains completely, a home, so long as one continues to BE alive and loving in it. And as one ages and outlives others, one can be alone in the home one has loved. Mine still feels warm and like a home - to me and to others who come here.
besides having all the material things; a family, love, and security!
A house becomes a home when it's filled with good and sometimes not so good memories made by times shared with people you love. When someone sits down at your table or in the den and says "I feel comfortable here" you know it is a home. Even if you live alone it can still be filled up and running over!
My wife and I bought a house and I would say it changed into our home when we had significant events there. The birth of my son, obtaining jobs, getting out of debt and much more. Material things such as pictures, designs and nic nacs help too.
Love is what makes a house a home. A home is your security blanket. A place you can always go to feel safe, understood, accepted, and loved. All the other stuff is just stuff. I guess that's why they say home is where your heart is.
Home is where the heart is. It is all about love and security, though a good meal is very homey too!
Love is the most important ingredient, of course. Otherwise, make your home comfortable and put your own unique style in it...them make wonderful memories there.
