If you enjoy being social, then it helps to have a home that’s designed to make entertaining friends and family simple. You don’t need a huge house to throw great parties – the layout and comfort level of your space is what determines its effectiveness as an entertainment space. Here are some decorating and remodeling tricks to make your home party-ready.
Make it easy for guests to chat.
The layout of your furniture is the most important thing to consider when making your home entertainment-friendly. Create several ‘conversation spaces’ where guests can face each other comfortably. For example, in the living room, set up three to four comfortable seating options in a square or circle, prompting guests to have a conversation. If you put the furniture too far away or at an odd angle, it will make it harder for a real conversation to happen.
Install durable storage spaces.
You’ll need awesome storage spaces if you love to entertain, particularly in the kitchen. Having the perfect food, drinks, and games on hand can take the party from good to great very quickly. Even if your home is small, you can still install tons of storage by taking advantage of the vertical spaces in your home.
Pay attention to your bathroom.
Your bathroom will see a lot of use if you like to entertain, so make sure it’s stylish but functional. Investing in durable sinks and toilets will go a long way, and adding chic wallpaper and warm lighting sconces are a simple way to make the space more welcoming for guests. Avoid putting too many decorative objects in the bathroom, as there’s a good chance they’ll get damaged if the room sees frequent heavy use.
