Still can’t get over that new house feeling? Savour it all you can! It’s there when you wake up in the morning, there when you come home from work and when go to bed.

And although that new house feeling is great, there might still be something missing: a new home feeling.

Making your house feel like a home is the best way to feel comfortable, settled and content in your new abode. So, how can we do this?

Here, the experts at New Zealand Movers tell us 5 ways to make your new house feel like a home.

1. Hang art

You don’t have to have a degree in art to be able to appreciate it and hang it in your home. Hanging art is one way to bring out your personal style, turning any house into a home with your specific flair and taste. And there are other benefits too; research suggests that simply looking at art can reduce stress levels and make you happy.

2. Put up photos

Photos of family and friends are a big part of making a house feel like a home. This way, we’re reminded of all the people who have meaning in our life, which is especially important if we’re living in a different city or country to some our loved ones.

3. Plants

Houseplants can lift the atmosphere of any house, making it feel like your home. Not only do we get so much joy out of nurturing our plants and seeing them grow, but studies also show that being surrounded by nature helps us maintain a positive mood. From fiddle trees to cacti, there are plenty of houseplants to suit your level of plant care.

4. Take all of your furniture

There’s a common theme in making your house feel like a home, and that’s the feeling of familiarity. So, it’s a no-brainer that furniture is going to play a big role in this, since it fills up 90% of your home! Transporting all your furniture from your current home to your new home and it will certainly allow you to feel more comfortable in it.

5. Candles
