The Difference between A HOUSE and A HOME

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


Difference between Home and House

  • House is a permanent structure, a building.

House generally refers to a building in which someone lives.

But a house is still a house, even if there is no one living inside the building.

Example: We decided to sell the house and move back to Seattle.

  • Home is the place where you live or the location where you feel that you belong, so a home can be a building or a location.

Home has more emotional feelings than the world house, it represents comfort, safety.

A home can also be the town/ city/ country where you grew up.

Example: Last night we stayed at home and watched TV.

How to use HOUSE and HOME

Home acts similar to words like here, there, in, out, somewhere, .... House does not.

Ex: They have a beautiful home in Hong Kong

Home carries more respect than house, so you can use it when you want to be polite to someone.

Ex: Good luck in your new home!

When you're talking to other people about your own place, you usually use house instead of home.

Ex: Why don’t you all come over to our house for coffee?
