What makes a house a home?


Did you ever wonder why the saying "Home Sweet Home" isn't "House Sweet House?

We think the answer is quite obvious. The word "home has a much deeper meaning that is far more intangible.

I am sure many of you spend hours looking through the pages of designer magazines, watch the HGTV television shows on home improvement, design, or selling or buying a home.

One thing strikes us quite often when we see fabulous designer spaces. Yes, they are gorgeous. They make me long for a cleaner, more pulled together design in my own home. Yet one thing is absent from all of those images, regardless of how perfect they are on the pages of a glossy magazine. Those images, those spaces and those houses are just not home. A house is just four walls and a roof, but a home is made up of everthing else inside.

A house may be decorated from floor to ceiling with the finest furnishings money can buy. But that will never ever make it a home. Home is comfort, home is inviting and is refuge from the world.

So after you buy your house from EXIT Realty Rivertown we are going to give you some great ideas on how to make some easy transformations to turn your house into your home inexpensively and many of these projects can be completed in a day.

Stay tuned for tomorrows blog for your first set of ideas.
