Even for the most hardened of travellers, there really is no place like home. After a long trip away from family and friends, staying in a hotel with a new bed that takes you at least a couple of nights to get properly comfortable in, nothing beats the first night back in your own bed.

Your own pillows. Your own new sheets. Your own bedroom. While the offering of luxury boutique hotels almost makes a mockery of your own, more humble, habitat – the fact that it is your own belongings mean that it will always make for the best night’s sleep you could hope for.

When you have been away, spending a few days at home makes for the ideal way to relax and unwind after a long trip. With this in mind, it’s important that we look after our homes so as, when we step back through the door, we are welcomed back with open arms.

Clean Kitchen, Clean Mind

How demotivating is it to walk into your kitchen in the morning, only to be greeted by mountains of washing up? It sucks, so imagine coming back after days or weeks away with washing up that has just sat on the side. There is only one word for that.


If you start your day having to clean up from the last, you are already on the back-foot. The first thing you should be doing when you walk into your kitchen is to pour yourself a nice warm cup of coffee and make some breakfast (scrambled eggs and toast, if you don’t mind).

Don’t leave empty packets on the side – clutter doesn’t make for great energy, so make sure any rubbish goes in the bin. If you want to be especially fabulous, ensure that your bin is a striking piece of d├ęcor in itself, such as these beautiful pieces.

Relax and Unwind

Home is where we retire to relax and unwind. Kick back and put your feet up on the sofa with your favourite series set up on demand. What would be perfect would be to have a beautiful LSA barware set which you can pour your favourite bottle of red into, but that would be being greedy now, wouldn’t it?

The best part about being at home is that you make the rules! Whether you fancy a duvet day, not getting dressed and lounging around the home in your pyjamas or binging on Netflix, the choice is yours! No one can tell you any different.

When on your travels, there is always a certain amount of pressure to venture out because you want to explore somewhere new. You haven’t travelled all that way just to sit in your hotel room watching Making a Murderer from start to finish. At home, this is your time to do whatever the heck you want and not feel guilty about it!

We Still Look Forward to Our Travels

While we love our homes, after those first few days we are once again planning our next trip. That itch is only momentarily satisfied before it rears its head again – oh the life of a traveller!

Almost as soon as we are back in the comfort of our own home, we are looking to fly the nest once more. As much as we look forward to exploring new and exciting places, still nothing beats walking back through that door, walking up the stairs and jumping on our own bed.
