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?

rhthomas1980 says: I feel that a house is simply the building itself, the four walls and a roof. It becomes a home, due to the inhabitants who live there, feeling connected with one another and comfortable and safe within their surroundings. I feel that my house is my home because I enjoy my day to day activities/existence here with a loving partner and our four fur kids (cats). It is our home together and we feel safe and secure here and it is a comfortable, open plan space within which we can relax and unwind away from the stresses of the outside world and surroundings, share intimacy and love and also a place to both create memories and reminisce about good times together e.g. travel & holidays. It is also a place that we enjoy inviting our friends and family to and to develop deeper more meaningful relationships with others.
