The word “Home Sweet Home” is used often anywhere. But do you really have a home instead a house?
Sunggiardi Construction compile 5 indicator, when you should call your house a home:
1. a Home is the place where you are longed for every day
Do you spend your days in your office? or even you travel a lot in your life? Staying on first class airplanes and luxury hotels? Do, despite of everything you had that day, you still miss your house, your bed ? If the answer is yes, then your house is your home.
Because no matter how extravagant a place you are in right now, your home is different, in a better way , that’s move us to next point:
2. a Home is suited to your lifestyle, not the way around
Your home might not the most luxurious place in the world. There are more building more luxurious than yours. You liked some of them and loath some. But you know that those place has no personal touch for you.
All hotels provide more or less same wardrobe configuration. But your home’s wardrobe should be different. Your wardrobe should say more about you. If you a woman and for example, you like to collect bags, then you should design your wardrobe to facilitate more bags than shoes.
Or, maybe you like cooking, your kitchen should support that. If you like to hang out with your family on your bedroom, your room should be more spacious than bedrooms on other houses.
If you like to hang out in your bedroom, but because it is small, you are hanging out in living room, maybe that’s not your home yet.
3. You should be able to shout to the world that your home is the best investment you ever have, just not financially.
Creating your home might cost you a significant wealth. It is one of largest cost you spend at your lifetime. And financially, your home are deteriorating each day, causing additional cost to maintain it, making it is not best investment available.
However, good homes soothe your mind. And your mind is the one who makes all wealth you have are there. So creating a home means that you reward yourself of the achievement you make all these years, furthermore, you make a sanctuary for your mind to achieve more in the future.
So it IS the best investment, just don’t calculate it financially.
4. a Home is a place where your best memories are made
A home should have soul, It is not only because your family lives there, but because you create memories there. Your home should be a witness of your joy and sorrow. A witness of your struggle and success. And a place for celebrating all best things you have in the world, on personal level.
Because in the end, you will forget about the restaurant or grand hall where you got your lifetime achievement awards. But you will hardly forget a bed where your children grew up, space where your dreams are made, and where your older relatives dying. All of them, good or bad, are personal memories, your best memories.
5. a Home is a place where you can leave the world behind
If you come home with all burden like stressed at work, have many deadlines, or unresolved issues on the day. Your home should make you think less of those.
Yes, you can’t forget all of your problems, but your mind need rest, so they can face the world again with fresh ideas and solution. Only a home can help you do that.
