All of us live
in houses, but how many of us know how to make it a real ‘HOME’.
You may have a small
house with a few rooms: not much to boast about. However, if you
follow some very simple and practical steps you can make your house
(big or small) a real home and thus, a better place to live in.
A Place For Everything
Irrespective of the size of your house, make sure there is
a place for everything. Organize your house – rooms, kitchen
shelves, cupboards, etc. in such a way that there is a place
2. And Everything
In It’s Place
Once you have allocated space for everything in the house,
make it a habit to put everything back in its allocated space
after use! Doing so will ensure that your house remains organized
and well kept. You would be surprised by how much time you
save by keeping things in the right place.
Discard Unnecessary Items
Make it a point to throw away things you don’t need: There may be
an old transistor lying around which no longer works and which no
one cares about - dispose it off by selling it, throwing it or giving
it away. Do what you want with it but don’t let it lie around in
the house to occupy space unnecessarily.
Keep It Clean
Make it a point to clean the house regularly. I’m not saying become
a fanatic. Don’t get obsessed with cleanliness but do try and spring-clean
the house once in a while!
If you have a small balcony, garden or a little gardening
space, try to keep it green. Keep potted plants and flowers
and water them well. Decorate your living room with a vase
of freshly picked flowers. It will brighten up your day and
Open Those Windows Regularly
Let there be good ventilation in the house. Let the sunlight come
in everyday. Use cheerful and bright colored home furnishings, though
this would depend on personal tastes.
Rejuvenate With Music
Play some good relaxing music in the house everyday, something you
enjoy listening to. Doing so will refresh you as well as send good
vibrations in the house.
Last but not the least
always stay positive and happy…. Enjoy and love where you live because
after all ‘Home Sweet Home’ is ‘The Place To Be’!!!
