I think that a majority of my readers will agree when I say that house is a building, and home is a place where you feel warm and cozy, a place where you can relax, a place that feels safe, a place you find yourself rushing to and not from. In order to make a home out of your house, here are some tips which could help you to achieve that goal.
- Take It All Up
What’s the use of having a bath tub if you keep going in the shower? What’s the use of having a great, big kitchen table if you eat your dinner from your lap in front of your TV?
