Your home is your own personal castle. In it you are the law and you are free to do as you please. Still, what makes your home the place you want to return to, is how comfortable you are there. Comfort comes about from the aura, memories and the ease of life in your home. When it comes to the aura you can only control what is in the vicinity of your home but, as for the surrounding region that is normally beyond your control. Memories can only be made after spending time in your home and though it is key to making your home feel comfortable it is not a necessity. You can feel more at home in a house that is brand new than one you have lived in for years. Yes, you can say that is because the house gives you a sense of nostalgia but, technically the memories were not made in that house. Now as for the ease of living, that is down to the conveniences in your home. Part of what can make life at home easy are the appliances you have.
