Some homes are well laid out for a party

If you’re a socialite or someone that enjoys a good dinner party, then you might want to add elements and ideas to your home décor to turn your home into somewhere that you can entertain people and host dinner parties. There is nothing better than a home that is set up well and offers a good number of entertaining options. Here are a few ways you can make your home an entertainer’s dream.

Separate work areas from entertaining areas

Interior designers will often focus on creating real and defined zones in the way they lay out a space, and this is an important concept when it comes to designing a home that is perfectly suited for entertaining. It’s particularly important to do what you can to separate the working areas like the kitchen from the entertaining areas like the dining room. This doesn’t have to be done with hard barriers like walls and can be as simple as a change in flooring or different lighting and a well-placed piece of furniture. The idea is to make a distinct change in zone from the work area to the play area.

Add a deck to the backyard

Moving the party outside and onto a welcoming and well fitted deck made of TimberTech decking will have a couple of great benefits for entertaining. It opens up a bigger area and takes the party out of your home. This can be a way of creating a really beautiful setting in the outdoors for warm summer evenings. Add a well thought out covering and some tasteful outdoor furnishings to round off a practical and useful deck for entertaining.

Make your lighting work

Ensure you have good lighting for your social space

Think about how quickly lighting can influence the mood of an area. Dimming lighting creates a softer, more pleasing, and relaxing feel to a space while hard, cool lighting can quickly make it feel more clinical. When we look at lighting entertaining spaces, we want lighting to be ambient and add atmosphere to the space. This is often achieved with soft glows and dimmer lighting from standing lamps or wall sconces. Add to this with a few candles to really make the lighting work to create mood and atmosphere.

Add a pizza oven

Particularly if you’re entertaining outdoors in the yard, a pizza oven is a wonderful focus piece for the area. It also provides the perfect excuse to host a pizza party or two. In fact this is actually quite a low effort catering option. It also gets the guests involved if you get them to make their own pizza. Don’t forget to become a pizza dough juggling expert to entertain them too.

Always make sure your pets have a quiet safe space they can stay while you entertain your friends

Final thoughts on creating an entertaining area at home

It might only take a few changes and not much money to transform your home. You can create a space that you can be proud of when you host dinners or outdoor summer evenings with a good bottle of wine and great friends. It’s all about hitting the balance between practicality and style when it comes to entertaining spaces.
