Is there really a main difference between a house and a home?
Going by the dictionary definition, a house is simply defined as a building for human habitation especially one that consists of a ground floor and one or more upper storeys while a home is a place where one lives permanently as a member of a family or household.
Our survey shows some people have a different perspective about the both of them.
Please read the interesting reactions we got from our social media handles below.
Temitope V. Akinnusi said A House – Four walls brick building while a Home – Family
Kay Ajani said The difference yapa
NREH: Please tell us
Kay Ajani replied that a house is where you sleep but a home is where you will always want to live. In a home, there’s comfort, peace of mind, love and so on.
Some people have a house but don’t have a home. That’s just a tip
Charles Bassey said A house is a building meant for different purposes while a home is a building specifically meant for living.
Damilola Fayoyiwa said a house is the building while a home is the content of the building
Adeyemi Folasade said A house houses your physical body while a home makes your body, mind and spirit feel comfortable at home.
Tayo Toba said Home is where the heart is while a house is just where you lay your head.
Ayodeji Glitterz Oripenaye said a House is just a structure while Family makes up the Home.
From what you just read above, it shows people have some emotional sentiments attached to the word Home compared to a House. So whenever someone tells you “Let’s go home”, you should know it is different from saying “Let’s go to my house”.
I hope you are clear now that the main difference between a house and a home is family ?
