For families who love to entertain throughout the year, entertainment space is an especially important consideration for designing your custom home. While the everyday use of your kitchen and living room is an important factor to consider, it may be equally important to consider the amount of space in each room so that they may easily be used to entertain on holidays and special occasions throughout the year. If you plan to entertain in your new custom home, consider the many reasons that your entertainment space is a significant consideration for your design.
You Want Your Guests to Feel Comfortable
Although the amount of space alone may seem like a crucial factor for entertaining, it is also important to consider the comfort of your guests in a space. Rather than planning for standing room, plan around the furniture that you hope to incorporate into your space to accommodate your guests, such as tables and seating.
Eating and Seating Spaces are a Must
Particularly for holidays with special meals, you will want plenty of room for your guests to eat and sit throughout the day. With this, you may want to consider the layout of your floor plan, such as an open concept between your kitchen and living room. This will not only give your guests comfortable places to eat, but it will also connect you to your guests as you host so that everyone can be together in a single space.
Your Family Will Need Room to Host and Enjoy Your Party
In addition to the comfort of your guests, you will also need to consider the amount of space that you and your family will need to comfortably host a party. This will require you to consider the layout of your kitchen and the space around your cooking and dining areas so that you can prepare, clean-up, and enjoy your party comfortably in your home.
Accommodating Guests Overnight
If you frequently have overnight guests at your home, you may want to incorporate a guest bedroom or additional sleeping spaces into your floor plan so that relatives and friends can stay comfortably overnight. These bedrooms can include their own bathrooms, or be centered around an existing bathroom in your floor plan as well.
