How to Make Your New House Feel Like Home

Moving in to a new home can be a scary experience. After years of decorating, adjusting, painting, and making one house feel like home, it’s time to pack it all up and start over in a new place. And although boxing up your life can be daunting, it’s important to remember what truly defines a home: showing your personal style, making memories, sharing traditions, and enjoying loved ones.

Your personal expression 

Finding the perfect feng shui of space, furniture, color, and texture in your home can take anywhere from weeks to years. Organizing and decorating a house in a way that feels like home is no easy feat, yet it’s necessary to create a space that feels natural. And what better way to make a space your own than using elements that express your personality? Whether it’s photos of your loved ones, family heirlooms, or pieces by your favorite artist, find whatever it is that makes you feel comfortable.  

Making memories 

Once the rooms have been updated and the family portraits hung, it’s time to fill your home with something a little less tangible: memories! From learning to ride a bike in the driveway, spending summer nights in a tent in the backyard, or taking prom pictures on the stairs, a house is only as good as the memories made inside. It’s these experiences that last a lifetime.  

Spending some quality time with Dad


Traditions don’t have to be complicated. Your family can make pancakes on the first day of school or dress up in tacky sweaters or coordinated pajamas during the holidays. This sense of routine helps you make your house a home.  

Loved ones 

The word “home” can mean different things to different people. It can be a place you live for years or a place you stay for a short time. If you make memories with loved ones in your Invitation Home, it will feel like home. After all, home is where the heart is.
