Quiz: What Does Your Home Mean To You?

What do you love about home?

We all love home, but I believe that home means different things to different people. Each home is unique, and each person’s relationship to his or her home is special. For some people, home is a set place. For others, it’s being around the people they love, no matter where they are in the world. And for other people, home can be a possession or act – like a favorite blanket or a long warm bath. I envy those of you who can find home anywhere and everywhere you go.

For me, home is definitely a place… my actually house. I just can’t feel at home when I’m away from home, no matter what I do to try to make myself feel cozy on the road. More specifically, I don’t feel at home until I’m able to sleep in my bed. And hug my dog. And have a proper cup of tea. I like the comforts of home I have created for myself, and I find that I’m desperately homesick without them.

Some people like their homes to be full of people and activity. Others prefer a more peaceful and quiet abode. Some of us prefer a home that is full of our favorite possessions and collections. Others of us prefer a home that is more minimalist and tidy. What about you? I know for myself that I can’t rest unless my home is very quiet. I can’t feel at home if I have guests over or too much going on.

Thinking about how we all view home differently led me to write a new quiz: What Does Your Home Mean To You? This quiz will tell you exactly what makes you feel at home. Is your home a sanctuary or a place of inspiration? Take the quiz to find out!

Comment below, and let me know what you get on What Does Your Home Mean To You? Does it really represent what home means to you? What is the thing you miss most from home when you’re away?

    I don’t like to have a rent home. A prefer to have my own home where I can put, change, sleep, cry, cook, clean, shout and no one guide me.

    What ever type of place I have lived in, from humble bed-sit, to our Edwardian home today, everyone has said things like: how tidy I am, and/or how peaceful and homely it is. Someone even said they liked my ideas so much, they wished I would come and do similar in their place. Ever since I was a small child, I didn’t dream of my ideal wedding, I dreamt of my own home. I thought people actually chose to live next door to each other, and I always dreamt of building my own house, in the country, with just my husband and 2 children . We are not in the country, sadly, but we do have a lovely house. Oh, and no kids, thankfully!

    Your Home Means Simplicity

    You start every day fresh. You are optimistic about what’s to come.
    You like your home to be functional but not fussy. More stuff just means more cleaning.

    You believe in taking it easy. Whenever possible, you don’t set yourself up for failure.
    You rather do less and have less because it means you’ll be happier. You are a proud minimalist.

    Comment: Talking about home (not being a wallflower as a person), the Serenity result would have ‘hit home’ more. I have a cozy home and am not a minimalist the least, instead being a hamster i.e. collecting too many gadgets, however it’s quite in order anyway! 🙂

      I love your comment about hamsters collecting too many gadgets – very true in my case. I’ve been working on getting rid of some responsibly (donating, recycling, etc).

    Yes!!

    “You start every day fresh. You are optimistic about what’s to come.

    I like everything to have a purpose.

    “You believe in taking it easy. Whenever possible, you don’t set yourself up for failure.”

    I take it easy in the sense of doing things slow and steady. I try to optimize the way I do things.

    “You rather do less and have less because it means you’ll be happier. You are a proud minimalist.”

    I don’t need much to be happy, but I try to accomplish many things. I definitely am a proud minimalist. 🙂
