Boredom ranks as the worst sensation humans have experienced as it can be maddening. Unfortunately, this doesn’t only translate to activities and hobbies, but to places as well. One day you might love your home, but the feeling doesn’t really stay with you and eventually wake up with a home you can’t stand to be in. A fate worse than being bored doing something, because you have to live in your home – complicated, if you find it stale and constricting.
