‘Home is where the heart is.’ As cheesy as this statement might sound to most of us, there is a great amount of truth in it. At its very core, we all want our homes to be a place of comfort and warmth —a little corner on the Earth where we can relax and unwind in peace. With that said, here are a few ideas of some thoughtful additions to make your home even welcoming:
1. Creating a Play Area:
Let’s face it. Raising kids is difficult (No surprises there). That difficulty can increase a couple of notches when you’ve got to do it in a limited space—with toys and playdoh cluttered everywhere. This is why it’s always a good idea to create a ‘kids’ area in your home.
Design a space where kids can play. You can decorate this area however you wish, or, you could even get your children to do it for you. Either way, the addition of a play area ensures that the clutter in your home stays limited to a certain space.
2. Adding a ‘Sunroom’:
If you wish to include more warmth and coziness in your home, one of the best ways that you can do that is by adding a ‘sunroom’ into your home. As the name suggests, a sunroom is a space right next to a window. This place is where you and your family members can soak up the sun, and get energized for the day. To design a sunroom, all you need to do is place a comfy sofa adjacent to a window, and you’re all set!
Houseplants can prove to be an excellent addition to the interior of your home. Not only does greenery add a splash of color to your home, but it can also elevate the aesthetics of your space and help create a welcoming environment.
4. Smart Tech:
The time has changed so much that, it’s extremely convenient to convert your home into a smart one. If you don’t want to go all out, you can always amalgamate certain smart technology into your house, such as a hands-free kitchen faucet, or LED remote-controlled light bulbs.
These small ‘smart’ additions will increase the functionality of your home, and elevate your living style to new heights.
5. Disabled Lifts:
Disabled lifts are an addition that most people don’t think of while building houses. Excluding these would make sense if they were expensive — they’re not only thoughtful but inexpensive too. Think of how special and included a guest with special needs will feel coming to your place. A place where they don’t have to feel embarassed asking for help just to enter.
Now that we’ve given you a couple of ideas on how to make thoughtful additions to your home, it’s time for you and your imagination to shine. At the end of the day, your home is your own, and it is only fair that you make additions that suit your living needs and requirements.
