The perfect home can host as many families and friends, fill them with laughter, and keep them entertained. Whether your guests are stopping by for dinner or to sleep over, they deserve the perfect space. Here are eight design ideas to make your house the perfect place for entertainment.
1- A Media Room
Every house needs a room where the TV can be watched, and DVDs played without interrupting other parts of the home. The media room should be thoughtfully designed for sound clarity and performance, so it is both pleasurable to view and easy to listen to from other rooms in the home.
2- A Cool Bar
Having a bar in your home makes serving drinks and wine more convenient and allows you to have fun with the decor. Store-bought bar accessories can be fun and inexpensive, but they lack personality. Customize your bar accessories with touches of leather and metal or fill the bottles with colorful custom labels. For an extra cool touch, consider adding a tasting area where your guests can try samples of rare vintages or liquor without being overwhelmed by the full-sized bottle.
3- A Pool Table or Darts Space
The classic game room staple is always a winner. A pool table can be a space to throw down some unsmiling competition or hang out with friends and family. A pool table, especially if it’s an all-wood variety, provides an inviting ambiance for the space.
4- An Open Floor Plan
A large living room that can be used by several people simultaneously is a wonderful option for entertaining guests. With enough seating, you can easily accommodate several large groups without feeling cramped in your home. An open floor plan allows guests to circulate freely throughout the house without feeling stuck in one area while others move quickly through the rest of the house.
5- A Home Theater
It’s hard to describe a movie-watching experience better than the one you get from your home theater. With the feeling of being immersed in the on-screen content, home theaters provide a space for guests to feel like they are no longer at a house party but rather watching their favorite TV show or movie.
6- Air Hockey and Foosball
Arcade classics can also be enjoyed in your living room. Why not accommodate your guests with fun games they can enjoy while being social and entertained? Both air hockey and foosball have space requirements that make them especially suitable for medium to large-sized living rooms.
7- A Place to Display Artwork
An initially blank wall can be transformed into a decorative feature that instantly adds value to the room. By framing a series of photographs, you can create a unique, artistic feature in your home without needing to add large Artwork with expensive frames. Use your framed Artwork to cover blank walls that don’t have furniture or photographs on them or hang other pieces of art on them.
8- A Water Feature
A tranquil pond, fountain, or waterfall can be an oasis of calm and relaxation in your home. Residential water features are also useful; they can create ambiance, add humidity to the air (an especially good idea during the winter months), and even help provide drainage if your house lacks a sump pump.
