4 ways to make your new house feel like home

Just moved into a new house? Congratulations! What an exciting chapter of life to begin.

While a new house can be just what you need if your family is growing (or alternatively, have just left the nest), a new place can take some getting used to. Some experts even recommend living in your home for at least a month before you start decorating, to get a true feel for the place. But if you’re eager to have your creature comforts on hand from the get-go, why not try these simple tricks to bring back a sense of the familiar?

1. Decide where to put your photos

Looking for an immediate way to make your new place feel like home? Hang up your precious family photos! Start in the bedroom and work your way around, hanging or displaying photos as you go. That way, while you’re getting your bearings in the new space, you’ll have the comfort of your favourite photos already on display to make the transition easier.

Once you’re all unpacked and settled in, you’ll be able to spot some bare walls or empty spaces to style and make uniquely yours. This is a fabulous opportunity to print your favourite holiday or family photos so you can display your fondest memories proudly in your new home!
