If you have just recently moved house, it can be hard to make it feel homely for a while. However, with these eight tips your house will become more than simply bricks and mortar


Bake some bread

There is nothing like the smell of freshly made bread to truly make your house feel like a home.


Put pictures all over the fridge

You don’t live in a show house – let the kids cover the fridge in their artwork.


Hang up family photos

Family photos all over the place will really make you feel like you belong there.


Leave the mess

Kids live there – it’s never going to be pristine.


Get a bookshelf

And pile it with all your favourite stories.


Don’t buy lots of new stuff

Don’t go out and buy new rugs or cushions unless you need to – use what you have.


Give things a place

If everything you own is given their own space things you will eventually start feeling like you have been there for ages.


Paint the walls with colour

Ditch the bland beige walls and instead go for some colour – your house will feel instantly warmer and more lived in.
