How to Create the Right Home Life for Happy Family Living

Choosing the right house, apartment or flat that's the right fit for your family, and turning it into a home is important for happy family living. To turn a house into a home, the house itself needs to allow for the activities you and your family love doing together. If your kids are into sports, you will definitely need a backyard, or your home would have to be in close proximity to a park. 

If your spouse needs a separate room for their work, such as a studio, an office or even a general-purpose room, you definitely need to make sure you find a house that has enough rooms for yours and their needs. What if, say, your husband also finds it absolutely crucial that he has a gaming room or your wife wants that extra closet space? Choosing the right house as a foundation to turn into a home is the first step. 

The next step is what I call "home cultivation". Are you a busy family that needs a lot of personal space or a young, budding family, which you want to keep tight-knit? Either way, you will want a house that embraces family living, and really gives every member of the family a sense of comfort. To achieve this, you need to look beyond the physical and get to cultivating an enriched and wholesome family lifestyle.

Family Living Tip 1 – A Family That Eats Together, Stays Together

​I know a lot of people who are too busy to make eating a ceremonious affair, but complain that their children never get out from behind their screens to make an effort to spend time with them. It might not be possible for all family members to attend all meals and that's fine – as long as there is an effort being made to eat together as many times in the week as possible.

 It's important to find a home that supports a system that works for you and your family. If you're a very busy family and perpetually eat breakfast and dinner on the run then it would be best if you moved your family into a home that has a centrally located kitchen/dining room. If you're dining room is tucked away and it's too much of a hassle to move the plates, cutlery, drinks etc. every time there's a meal, you can instead make eating together a weekly tradition. Food brings joy, and it can also bolster the connection you have with your family.

Family Living Tip 2 – A Fun Family is a Happy Family

​Just as it is with eating together, having fun together is highly important. Vacations, outings and even going to he local playground together can provide memories that you'll be talking about for many years to come – because who wants to talk about the hard times? A way of doing this around the home is to make sure your home is fun! This has more to do with the general vibe of your home more than the setting, however, a home that supports fun is important too! A house with large windows and gets ample sunlight, a large rumpus room for the little ones or a separate play room with a TV if your kids are interesting to playing video games. The sky's the limit with this one, but having around the house and with your family is one of the most important factors oh having quality family living.

Family Living Tip 3 – Time is the Most Important Gift You Can Give

​If your kids or spouse doesn't have a place in which they can spend time with you, then you don't have the right home! A home that supports a family spending time with one another is one that has a family living room or space in which all members of the house can simultaneously spend time with one another. Make sure you keep this factor in mind when you're choosing your next house for you family as time really is the best gift you can give to your loved ones!
