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?

des says: I would have to say yes it feels like home been here 14 years now.And we felt at home very quickly when we moved in. By no means is it a display home but we love it. Always nice to come in the front door and go oh yeahhhhh good to be home,kick the shoes off and hit the recliner put the legs up after a long day at work or just out for the day. It's the place where our kids come to visit and grandchildren go to visit nanny and pa. And our 2 little dogs also make it home as well. We know all of our neighbours and look out for one another take each others bins out if we go away collect the mail etc makes our home more of a community experience. Which I think people can miss living in the city. Being emotionally connected to the area makes it feel like home in my opinion. I come from Grantham as do all my family and when it was wiped off the map with the floods some years ago I grieved for my hometown and all the family and friends who lost everything. Even though I feel at home here when that happened it tore my heart out and hometown feelings for Grantham was very high it was "home" so I think not only is home where you physically live under a roof either alone or with loved ones. It's also home with your connections to people and places around you. Where you feel safe,connected,at peace,and loved.
