Are you a big fan of hosting dinner parties, celebrations, or big holiday bashes at your house? Then you need to make sure that your home is well-equipped with features that make it perfect for entertaining.
One of the biggest advantages of undertaking home renovations in Adelaide is that you can build in the features that suit you and your lifestyle – in this case, to make it a lovely house for entertaining. Here are five great home features that will make your home a hit among all your guests and visitors.
Build an open concept kitchen
When you are hosting guests for a dinner party or any gathering that involves food, you will find yourself spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Without an open kitchen, you could be missing out on valuable interactions with your guests while you are quartered off in a closed kitchen.
To allow your guests to still communicate with you and even lend you a helping hand with the food preparation, an open kitchen is the way to go. Moreover, a beautifully designed open plan kitchen can be the highlight of your entire home in your guests’ eyes – so bear this in mind when you next undertake kitchen renovations in Adelaide.
Create a functional outdoor space
In the warmer months, entertaining your guests outdoors is a must. You can make sure that both you and your guests have a lovely time soaking in the warm weather by adding some features to your home’s outdoor space.
For example, a covered porch will ensure that your guests do not have to come rushing in at the slightest hint of a shower, while also offering some cooling shade. Meanwhile, a deck will give your home an air of sophistication, no matter how big or small it is. Lastly, a fire pit is a nice touch that can offer both a little bit of ambience and a whole lot of fun to your house parties.
Keep a powder room on the main floor
If the space in your house allows for it, you can think about adding in a powder room on the main floor of your home where your guests will be. This way, you will not have to keep giving your guests directions to an upstairs floor each time they ask for the toilet.
Furthermore, a powder room is the perfect opportunity to really bring out your interior design chops and show off a nicely decorated room to your guests. It also keeps your guests from having to use your main bathroom where all your personal belongings and bathing items are kept.
Have multiple seating options available
On a normal day in your home, you may think that your living room provides ample seating space. But this may not be the case when you are entertaining! Offer your guests a variety of seating options so that they can choose which is the most suitable for them. This could range from low-seating ottomans, armchairs and sofas, to bar stools or foldaway chairs brought out just for the occasion.
If you have a large number of guests over, they may not feel comfortable with congregating in only one room of your house. Therefore, make sure that you provide seating options in other areas besides the living room, such as the dining area, the open kitchen, or any secondary living areas.
Consider having a guest room
A guest room would be useful if you often throw parties late into the night or are used to entertaining guests from out of town. One good idea is building the guest room with an adjoining bathroom away from the main bedrooms in order to offer your guests more privacy. If space is an issue, you could opt for a wall bed in the living room instead of a dedicated guest room.
