What makes a Safe Haven?
Having a home that is safe and sound means more than just security in our books. It means creating a home that is a safe haven for the people in it. A place of refuge, where it’s habitants feel protected, sheltered, and loved. In our eyes home security is having a house that people actually want to come home to.
So what makes a happy home? What makes it a safe haven?
A home has many different inhabitants in it so ensuring that there is a space for everyone is important. From toddlers and teens to that infamous “man cave”, everyone in the family wants to have a place they can relax in, that is their own.
If individual spaces are important so equally are having gathering spaces or entertainment areas. A home where you can’t come together is an unhappy one. Gathering spaces not only bring a family together but allow you to bring your friends and loved ones closer. Both spaces are important to make its inhabitants feel like they have somewhere they feel comfortable and accepted in. That’s a true safe haven.
A happy home also works with you, not against you. That means finding a home that has a bathroom and kitchen that makes sense for your family. The most arguments start here so take the time to make these spaces work. Do they have enough room? Are they functional? Are you able to have fun and relax there? Make sure to tick all these off and give yourself a house that is a refuge not a hassle.
The final stage to making a safe haven for your home’s inhabitants is to choose a style and design that reflects your family. Are you active people? Do you like traditional or contemporary? Is it just you or your partner or do you have a large brood? All these matter. If you’re not comfortable in your home you are definitely not going to be happy or feel very secure there.
Don’t choose a home that limits you or a style or design that you can’t change. A family evolves over time and having a house that doesn’t allow you to do that isn’t one that is functional for you. You are constantly going to feel stressed and unhappy about your living situation. Choose a style or design that grows with you and you’ll have a safe haven for years to come.
Safe and sound is what you make of it. Home security is important but it’s not the only thing that makes a home secure. Feel the love in your home and create a safe haven for you and everyone that lives there.
