Dealing with the In-lawsWell, in-laws visiting aren’t good news for a lot of us. It requires changing a lot of things in your interiors itself. All the more so, if you are one of the couples who still live like you have got a bachelor pad. A lot of articles in your living room might have to be done away with entirely. Sure, this hurts like hell but you have no choice at times. It gets very difficult to tactfully design your house in accordance with the wishes of your in-laws. It is by no means an easy job. Yet, it is something with which nearly every married couple has to deal with.Copy their Design! Yes, at times, the oldies sound intrusive like they want to interfere with everything including how you decorate your house. At times, you might have no choice but to give in to the wishes of your in-laws. However, if you take cue from the way their home has been done up and do yours accordingly, you will have absolutely nothing to worry about. Now, isn’t that one great idea? In fact, isn’t that like the best ever thing! Just, copy your spouse’s parents and stay happy for the rest of your life. Yet, some in-laws are in dire need of attention and may not let go off even then.Tell them straightforward that it’s your House You will have to take your call at such times. You may or may not want to entertain the request of your mother/father in-law. Or, you could do up the rest of the house according to their tastes but decorate your bedroom just the way you like. You will then have to buckle up and ask them to keep away from the bedroom. However, they may understand if you offer them a fair deal. You have got nothing to lose. So, why not give it a shot anyway? Maybe, you will get your own personal space in the bedroom at least.However, sometimes nothing works and you will have to give in to them. However, in-laws only stay for a few days and it will not hurt to entertain their tiny requests. Thus, take their opinions into consideration and see if you like it. Sometimes, they do end up giving really good advice. Moreover, they aren’t going to stay with you forever, are they? If they are, you better start doing up the entire house along with them.]]>
