What is the main difference between a house and a home?

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.

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.

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.

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 ?
