What’s In The Way Of You & Your Perfect Home?

If you are not already living in your perfect home, why might that be? At first glance, you might think that you know what it is that’s stopping you, but if you look a little deeper you might quickly be surprised to discover that you are kidding yourself about the real causes. There are so many things that can get in the way of you and your dream house, and it is worth knowing exactly what those are so that you can approach the issue with as much previous knowledge and understanding as possible. With that, you will be able to get much closer to having your perfect home much sooner than you might expect. With that in mind, let’s take a look at a number of the common hurdles stopping people from having their ideal, perfect home.

Lack Of Vision

One of the most common reasons that people end up living in anything less than perfect conditions is that they are not actually fully aware of what that perfection looks like to them. You need to have a strong sense of what it is that you actually want from your home, otherwise you will find it hard – perhaps even impossible – to manifest the kind of dream home that would really make you happy. So, the first thing to get out of the way is this: are you suffering from a lack of vision about what you really want? It might be that something is blocking your creativity, or that you have taken on too many other people’s ideas of what makes a good home that you have forgotten your own. Whatever it is, remove the blockage, and improve your own understanding of what you really want. It can even be helpful to sit down with pen and paper and give yourself the opportunity to brainstorm freely. In this way, you can open yourself up to what you really want, and that will mean that you are more likely to get it – for obvious reasons.

Financial Constraints

It goes without saying that bringing your dream home into existence is going to cost money in one way or another. This is equally true whether you are building a home from scratch or simply renovating an existing one. But no matter the extent of your financial concerns, there is always a solution to be found. It’s worth remembering that, because money worries very often have a way of making things seem impossible, even if that is not actually the case. If you are struggling financially, you might want to think about what you can do to make it a little easier on yourself.

The first thing to consider here is how you might be able to bring about more money in your life. This can be easier than you might think; mostly, it just requires that you change your mindset to wealth and gaining money. With the right kind of mindset, you can find yourself receiving much more, and it can almost seem to happen as if by magic. In a way, it is magic. An immutable law of this magic is that you must share and share alike with any wealth you receive, and that process of sharing can be much looser than you might think. It can mean, for instance, creating a better and more peaceful home to share with your family. Follow this rule, and money will come.

Alternatively, you can simply work on finding ways to keep the costs of renovation and building down. If you are curious about how to update your home on a tight budget, the good news is that there are many places to begin – and no matter whether you start with something small or something larger, you should be able to make it happen. Reduce the costs, and much of the stress of the process will be removed, along with one of the major hurdles.


Time is an even more important resource than money, and in many ways it is even more difficult to master and control. For obvious reasons, it is finite, whereas your ability to gain wealth is pretty much infinite. However, with a better understanding of how to use your time, you can easily make more use of it, and this can help with what is often one of the major hurdles stopping you from having your perfect home. Work on planning out your renovations in detail regarding the timescale, and you will find this really does help to achieve what you are hoping to achieve in a much better speed.

    Buying a home can be a pretty scary thing, especially for first-time buyers! I think you’ve hit the nail on the head here about some of the potential things that may be getting in the way. However, I think pursuing your dream home is a really important goal. I moved to Devon not long ago and I absolutely love it here (it’s also much cheaper than living in London). Being in the countryside and in touch with nature is great, and there is so much natural beauty around. If any of your readers are hesitant about buying their dream home, I think they should go for it!
