What makes your home a home?

A recent study released by IKEA revealed that homes don't always feel like home, and some people reported feeling more at home in their cars. Does your home feel like home? What makes it like that? And if you don't feel at home there, why not? Where do you feel most at home?

It was my first time living by myself and at the time my parents were in the process of selling my family home of 20 years which was really sad. My rent is too expensive and I missed the fun aspect and companionship I got from living with housemates, so I viewed it as something temporary. When I finally accepted that it was just easier to stay put and independent-living grew on me, I began to decorate and add my own little touches. Making it my own, made me see it as a home and now I don’t want to leave!
