Shifting houses, be it to a bigger one or a smaller one always becomes a difficult task with a load of memories attached to the place you are leaving. But the best part is that, the place was special because you were there with your family as well belongings.
Now that you are shifting homes, fill the new house with all those things and it would become home again, a beautiful home where you belong.
There are certain ways in which you can turn that new house into a sweet home such as:
- Make space to put frames: Your home generally has photo frames with beautiful nostalgic pictures of the entire family, give some space to these frames again so that the house feels more personal. You can also add the artwork of your kids to this and put it on the wall. So whenever you enter the room now it would feel lovely.
- Throw a party: Wherever you invite your friends or family over, it gives you a sense of belonging and you immediately attain attachment to that place. Every place with the special people around you becomes beautiful as well as a spot for creating memories. So this can be a wonderful thing to do so that both you as well as your friends and family start considering the new house your home.
- Showcase all your favorite things: Another thing you must do is fill your home with all your belongings be it your beautiful flower pots, your book collection, some souvenirs from a trip you had the last year or your lamps and lights.

- Do everything to the space you like: With the physical and material things one side, home is a place where you do what you like, arrange things the way you like. This is your space which you must use with liberty. If hanging frames around makes you happy do it, if keeping the place clean makes you happy do it or even if putting dozens of lights in every room makes you happy do it.
