Make a House Feel Like Home After PCS

 Buying a Home For Sale in Military City USA? How To Make It Feel Like Home.

If you are part of a military family, you are probably used to living a transient lifestyle and you are probably an expert in turning any type of house into a home.

Whether you have just bought a home for sale near Fort Sam Houston or moving into off-base housing, the challenge is to incorporate your personal style into your new home. 

Many modern conveniences are now making it easier to make even off-base housing feel like home.

Here are some ways that you can turn your house into a home:

1. Paint

Paint is one of the easiest type of home remodeling you can do. The sterile white walls of Fort Sam Houston off-post housing will take on new life and instantly create a personal touch to make it feel like home.

2. Wallpaper

If you cannot make permanent changes on off-post housing because you are renting you can try using temporary wallpaper. Choose an accent wall for the wallpaper to add color and bring life to a room and then remove it before you leave.

3. Window Treatments and Curtains

Window treatments and curtains can add warmth and personality to a bland room. 

4. Hang photos

If you are renting a Fort Sam Houston off-post housing which prohibits drilling holes on walls, you can still hang your photos on your walls by choosing from a variety of adhesive decorative and metal hooks and picture and frame hangers. 

5. Cabinet Hardware and Light Fixtures

The seemingly small change of a light fixture or kitchen and bathroom cabinet can create a big impact in creating a more homey feel.

Whether you bought a home for sale near Fort Sam Houston or are moving into a Fort Sam Houston off-post housing, it is important to create an environment that feels like home, regardless if you own the home or are renting. With every PCS always look at the new home as if it were your own so you can easily think of the updates and changes you will make.
