The meaning of home means different things to different people. Whether you love relaxing at home with a hot brew or spending time with family and friends, we know your home is special to you.
It is not just the meaning of home that differs but your décor, your interior style says a lot about you from your chosen colour pallet to the pictures you hang on the wall. However, if you had money to burn perhaps there would be things you would change in your home, according to a survey by Chill Insurance 70% of people would like a swimming pool in their dream home. Whilst a swimming pool may be luxurious 36% of respondents wouldn’t stop there as they opted for a full spa.

Sometimes a home isn’t always a house and it appears that 30% of people would consider living on the water in a nice fancy yacht. Others would trade it all in for a treehouse or canal boat. When it comes down to it home really is where your heart is.
