Is Your Home Your Final Abode?

We’ve noticed that people sometimes become settled in homes they may not totally be in love with. But how can this be, right? You can decorate as much as you like and switch things around as much as you please, but it just never seems to be enough if you just aren’t in love with your home. Yet we’ve also noticed that despite all of this, nobody even thinks about trying to move other than a passing thought, because to them it just sounds like so much effort! Which we won’t lie, it is! To go through the hassle of moving into your own home and believing it would be perfect to you, to only find out a few months or a year down the line that it is everything but the home for you can be crushing. But now is the time to consider whether the home you’re in is truly your final abode. If you ever have any doubts whatsoever, we think it most definitely is. Like with romance, you’ll just know when you’ve found the home for you. So before you stress about moving, or the thought of your home not being right for you, have a read of this article.*

Image Source What Would Be Your Perfect Home? So this is something that you’re really going to have to think about if you want to know whether your home is perfect for you, or whether your next home is going to be the one. Because a lot of you will have fell in complete love with the home you’re in at the minute at the time of buying, but somehow it fades away. The biggest culprit of this is actually home envy. You see other homes, perhaps they’re more modern or spacious, and you can’t help but wish that it was yours. You then start to think that the home you have was the wrong choice, but was it really. All of these other homes you’re crushing on are probably way out of your budget, but in your mind you’re probably pulling money out of thin air, or slashing your spending so that you convince yourself you would be able to afford it! So, before you think about what home is going to be your final abode, think about what your home has that you need, and what it doesn’t have that you really do need. Then, rather than looking at the plush new houses, you can look at the ones that are going to be practical!

Why Is A Move Holding You Back?
So if you really aren’t happy with your home, you’ve probably just been putting up with it for some time now. We’d like to say we get why, but we really don’t! Moving home does sound like a pretty daunting task, but it is really not as bad as you think. Once you’ve done it once, you’ll find that you know the basics of it all, and it all flows into one movement! But you have to think about the property you’re moving into, where it is, what size it is, and what you’re going to need to buy. If you are going to move, you have to factor in all of the costs of actually moving, and then buying any additions that you might need for your new home. That is where people get stung the most!

Have Your Tried Decorating & Renovating?
Stupid question, but have you really tried decorating your home again? We’re not just talking about changing the wallpaper, or repainting the walls, we’re talking about getting stuck in and really changing everything about your home. From the furniture, to the accessories, to the color scheme. If you have a complete overhaul, sometimes the new interior design is enough to steal your heart. When doing it, you should definitely try and change the layout of the rooms if you find space is the problem. Sometimes just moving furniture gives you the room you need! Renovating is a must as well if you have the money! You can completely transform a room by renovating it, and you can create so much more space for yourself as well. As costly as it might be, it could be a long term investment!

Do You Have A Partner To Settle In With?
This is a small note we want to finish on, because love is all you might be missing. You might have moved out on your own because you outgrew you parents home, which is natural. But if you don’t have a partner or family to share your home with, then it might be the case that love could make your home perfect for you! *This is a collaborative post.
