How To Renovate Your Home To Make It Great For Entertaining

You’ve probably been in someone’s home and remarked on how great the space was for entertaining.  But what exactly makes a home a great entertaining space? We’ve compiled some home renovation ideas that will help you create spaces that are perfect for warmly welcoming guests into your home. Whether you want to tackle a main floor renovation, a kitchen or basement renovation, there are plenty of options when it comes to prioritizing entertaining.

The first step in making your home ready to host, is determining your entertaining needs and entertaining style. Factors such as how often you host extended family, the age and number of kids living in the home, and the number of guests you typically host will all influence the type of entertaining space you will need.

Renovate Your Home For Multifunctional Hosting

One of the benefits of working with a custom renovator is that you can really create a space that will work for your needs.  Flexibility, when it comes to home design, has been a huge change in the last few decades. Homeowners are looking for renovation ideas that support multifunctional spaces that can accommodate large parties, small gatherings or a special family dinner.

Open Layout

Open layouts increase the options for entertaining. Renovation ideas to improve your layout include widening openings or hallways so that your rooms flow from one space to another. Without walls limiting flexibility, tables can be joined to a dining room table to accommodate extra guests, or the space can be left open to allow guests to move around. Renovations that allow homes to feature a more open concept, are one of the best options when it comes to wanting a better space for hosting.

A Kitchen For Entertaining

Kitchen renovations now often include an expanded take on a breakfast nook or a comfortable seating area and fireplace as well. Ideal kitchens for entertaining are no longer just for cooking, but also for socializing, entertaining and spending time with family. Many homeowners opt for a chef worthy kitchen when completing a kitchen renovation as it allows for a more open concept design as well as lots of interactive seating space. A combination family room and kitchen, is another popular renovation idea that allows for guests and hosts to easily mingle and spend time together.

The final element to consider when it comes to kitchen renovations for hosting, is whether or not you can include a kitchen in your outdoor hosting space. Outdoor kitchens are becoming increasingly popular, because they enable homeowners to enjoy the space with their guests instead of having to frequently disappear inside to prep, cook or clean up.

Boosting Your Basement

Deciding to finish your basement is one of the best ways to add space to your home.  However, if you are hoping to add a multifunctional space that can become a central space to entertain, make sure you create a design that will support your needs.  Adding a simple bathroom and a large open space may seem like enough, but there is so much more you can do to create a space perfect for entertaining.

Basements can include excellent entertaining features like a home theatre or a bar, but you can also maximize the space to include a bedroom for guests, separate space for guests to leave coats and bags, several different types of seating, a bathroom, an area to prep, store and set out food and drink.
