A question that many people ask when they walk into someone else’s home which is done up nicely with decorations and trinkets is “why”. Why decorating our home is so important? What is it about matching furniture and décor pieces nicely laid out that appeals to us and makes us want to spend hours upon hours looking for decor items?
The simplest reason that we decide to decorate our homes is to show pride. Being able to create a space that you are happy with and proud to show others is a great feeling and boosts your self-esteem and confidence. Having people compliment your space and comment on your belongings is not only a great conversation starter but also a great feeling on its own.
Decorating your home is a way to release an artistic vibe. You do not need to be a professional artist to have an artistic streak. We all have it in there somewhere and it can come out in different ways. Being able to choose the items to go into your home and for them to have a meaning to you is a beautiful thing. You can be as simple or as drastic as you like with your decorating. And it can and will show your personality through your belonging and how you decorate your house.
Some people read books, some go for walks. Others, well they spend time decorating their home. It is a way to release and relax. Being able to move items around, choose new décor and decide on colour schemes can be very refreshing and productive for some people.
It is a way to let your stress out and have a nice, relaxed space where you can feel and be yourself.
Creating a Home
Ever heard the saying “A house is not a home” or “Home is where the heart is”
It is true that there is a clear difference between a house and a home. A home has a feel about it, it is hard to explain but it just FEELS right. That is one of the reasons that we decorate our home. So that our house no longer just feels like a space that we are living in. That it feels like an actual home. Somewhere that you can be comfortable, somewhere that you want to go back to and sometimes not even want to leave. By decorating our space we can make it our home. Give it our own personal feel and touch. So that our family all want to spend memorable time in it.
Because Beauty is Beautiful
We take pride and care in the clothes we wear, right? We want to look nice when we go out and we choose outfits that suit our personalities.
Well, our homes are exactly the same. We want to make them look nice. Dress them up, keep them well kept, lawns mowed, and show a little of ourselves in our decorations and décor.
There is absolutely no shame in wanting your home to look nice. Being able to show that you are proud of your living space and that you want to spend the time making it look nice is a great thing.
Decorating our homes is a form of self-expression. In it, we create a place that is uniquely ours and reflects our personality, values, and lifestyle.
We decorate our homes because we want to make them more than just shelters. We want to make them personal spaces where we can unwind and be comfortable, surrounded by our life’s memories. In fact, studies have found that people are about four times more likely to buy a house if they see photos of family members on the walls.
Home decoration provides a sense of belonging, improves moods, and makes people feel more comfortable.
There are so many ways in which you can decorate your house. And you do not have to spend a lot of money to do so. You can simply refresh the furniture that you already have or rearrange the rooms so that there looks to be more space.
So, if you want to make your house reflect who you are and homely, then go for it! And make sure you have a blast whilst doing it!
