The first word that comes to mind is “change.” The word “environmental” seems to fit, given that our home is one of the most important places in our lives. When you buy a home, all of the decisions you make are directly related to the choices you make in the home. As we grow and change, we adjust to changes in the environment. The changes that we experience directly create new habits, reactions, and ways of thinking.
That’s why when you buy a home, you have to decide what kind of lifestyle you want to create there. Do you want to make sure that the house is going to be a safe place for your children or do you want to make sure that it’s going to be a place that’s going to be a reflection of who you are? The environment we live in is so closely connected to our own experiences that it can sometimes feel like we’re changing the world around us.
It’s an interesting thing because that connection is hard to define. Often times people don’t see the connection that goes into their decisions, so they think they’re making a decision that is going to affect them and not the environment. This is especially true when you’re purchasing a home, because in many states you can’t just make that decision, you have to take a home inspection.
The other thing I think is that a lot of us tend to put our decisions in the environment and not necessarily the environment in the decision. If a business comes into town and takes over your town, you might not be happy about it. But when youre buying a house, you have to take into account a lot of things about the place. For instance, some people consider the kitchen to be the heart of the house, but it’s actually the main entry point to the house.
When it comes to buying a home, I think we tend to think in terms of our personal preferences. Thats why many people have their priorities wrong in the beginning. If you want a large kitchen, you probably don’t even think about the fact that the kitchen might be the first floor of your house. That is, if you prefer a large kitchen over a small kitchen, even if you can afford both, you probably dont want the large one.
I think many of us have this misconception that if we replace our kitchen area, we’ll be able to fit in our new space. Well, the truth is that if you replace an entire kitchen area, you’re probably going to be just one room too small, because its not easy to move a kitchen from a smaller room to a larger one.
Of course, if you’re just replacing the kitchen, then you might as well just get a bigger kitchen and save that for the future. But if youre trying to get your kitchen small, it could be more than just your first floor, because you’ll need a big breakfast area, a big kitchen, and maybe even a basement.
Thats one of the reasons I put up with my roommates. I mean its not like I’m a hoarder, but I do have a lot of stuff, and its difficult to move stuff from one place to another. Its not just the space itself that makes space. It’s the people and the way they interact with it.
When I lived in London I always wondered what it would be like to live in a small flat. There’s so much space, but every surface is so small. I would have to make sure the stairs were big enough for me to get to my top bunk in the middle of the floor. I would have to open all the glass doors of my kitchen if I was to cook with what I had.
For me, it was just a matter of size. If I moved my bed to the middle of the room I could have a top bunk to sleep on and I could have a closet and a bathroom. In that order, and with a top bunk. I didn’t need a lot of other stuff. I just had to put my things in order and get them out when I needed them.
