How to Make Your Home Better With Passing Time
  • Opening Intro -

    In order to keep your home from deteriorating, you need to:

    • have good awareness
      some basic tools
    • occasional tweaks to breath life back into your home
    • add new shelves as your storage needs increase
    • instill the habit of cleanliness in your children early on


With passing time, it is natural that some aspects of your house will see wear and tear. The initial brightness will be dulled. With proper maintenance and care, you can combat that and make your home better with time.

1. Awareness

Many people are so immersed in their work and life that they are unaware of what is happening to their environment.

Peeling paint, termites, bugs, rust, loose floorboards, creaking doors, roof tiles, etc, all require attention as soon as they happen to prevent further damage and accidents. So, check out areas of your house that might be susceptible to damage and repair them as soon as they happen.

2. Tools

Keep some basic tools handy so that the repairs and maintenance work can be done by you instead of waiting for a handyman.

You can look up manuals and learn new things to exercise your mind and body while doing something constructive that makes your home better.

Also, this exercise will be a welcome break from the humdrum of life and give you something to do that provides immense satisfaction when finished.

3. Improvement

Do not be reluctant to experiment with paints, furniture, artwork, woodwork, artifice, decorations, etc. This will make your home look better and the new enhancement will improve its livability.

Go for renovation, major or minor, every now and then to breathe a fresh breath of life into your house and make it feel novel and exciting.

Tweak the furniture arrangement every now and then to add some variety. Go for new sheets to add some spice to a dreary room. Home made decorations can also help you beautify your home without spending too much.

Go for curtains, upholstery, cushions, mats, rugs, etc to lend a warm, cozy and homely feel to the environment at home. Add a pop of color here and there to brighten up your home.

Throw in some quirky furniture or antique decorative pieces to lend your home some character and showcase some aspects of your personality.

4. Comfort

Accessibility and comfort should be your major concerns and areas of improvement.

Install new shelves or cupboards if the existing ones are not enough. Try and add extra racks and fixtures where needed.

These little tips will make your life easier. Also, they will help you maintain your home in a proper manner.

5. Cleanliness

This is one of the major concerns as days pass on. Instill the habit of cleanliness in your children early on.

Ask them to participate in lawn mowing, painting, vacuuming and other activities. Not only will it make your house clean, but also strengthen the bond that the family members share. A fun activity out of a boring job can create many improvements in your home and in you.

Home maintenance need not be a cumbersome task or a bane. It can be enjoyable if the family does it as one unit.

Change is what will make your life seem different from what it was yesterday. Accept and embrace new things wholeheartedly and never be afraid to experiment.
