Most of us can remember our childhood pretty well. These memories tend to stick with us for quite a long time. On the other hand, can you remember what you did yesterday? It’s funny how the brain works. Here are a few things you probably had in your household from back when you were a kid and should put in your current house as well.
An Intercom System
Was there anything more fun to play with in your house when you were a kid than the intercom system? Being able to communicate with family members in other rooms without having to walk more than a few feet seemed like such a great idea. However, with cell phones, it seems like everybody just texts instead. There probably is some sort of Bluetooth intercom system available for houses nowadays, but nothing beats the old-fashioned ones that were built into the wall!
A Pair of Rocking Chairs
Can you still recall your mom or grandmother sitting in the corner in their rocking chair back from when you were a young child? They spent hundreds of hours just rocking back and forth as they listened to your day or told you about theirs. It certainly does bring back good memories for most. Now you can add your own and discover the best rocking chair for your home design. You may not think you will use it, but it is odd how just rocking back and forth can bring a sense of calmness to even the toughest days.
If you grew up in the sixties through the eighties, there is a very good chance your home had some wood paneling in it. At some point, it was considered out of style, but there are newer designs now that you may like. Try it out in one of your current rooms and if you don’t fall in love with it, it always looks good painted.
A Farm House Kitchen Table
You can keep all of those fancy kitchen tables that cost thousands of dollars nowadays. Some of them are barely large enough to fit a family of three around them. We all need a farm-house kitchen table in our dining room or kitchen instead. It may look a bit rustic, but there will be enough room to sit a family of ten around it if needed.
