13 Budget Friendly Ways to Make Your House Feel Like a Home
Do you want your house to be a place where people love to gather? If so, then you probably know how expensive it can be to make it feel like a welcoming home.
Which is why I’m always on the lookout for great ways to make my home a more hospitable place without it costing me a bundle.
So for those that are in the same boat, I wanted to share a few ideas I’ve gathered over the years.
Then, hopefully, you can make your home place to gather and just in time for the holidays too.
Ways to Make Your Home Welcoming
Here is how I make my home a welcoming place on a budget:
1. No Room for Clutter Bugs
Making your home more welcoming and hospitable to guests isn’t all about home décor. In fact, I’d say the most important part of the process is having a clean home.
So don’t get all antsy thinking that someone is going to give your home the white glove treatment.
But you should want your guests to feel like they have room to breathe. Which is why it is so important to declutter all visible areas.
Believe me, I understand how quickly clutter builds up. I live in a smaller home with 5 people. I’m actually staring at the clutter that seems to have gathered overnight on the top of my fridge as I’m typing this.
So when I say, I know how easily clutter builds, I really do. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t stay on top of it. Try spending 15 minutes a day to declutter your home. Just pick a spot and go for it. When the timer goes off, then stop.
Then you can pick up where you left off the next day. This is a great way to manage the clutter in your home without going crazy trying to stay on top of it all.
Plus, if you declutter daily, then you are more likely to have a clutter-free home when unexpected visitors pop in.
