If you love hosting parties, your home should be designed to make entertaining as stress-free as possible. Here are some ideas for upgrades you can make around the house to simplify your hosting duties and make your guests feel more at home.
Upgrade the Coat Closet
You may not think much about where your guests store their coats and shoes. But having a good system in place will ensure items are never lost or damaged. Consider adding shelves either to the coat closet or by the front door for shoe storage so things don’t pile up on the floor.
If there isn’t enough room in your coat closet for all your guests to hang their jackets, it might be time to upgrade your closet. Building a new custom closet that’s designed specifically for your needs is an excellent investment. If that’s not an option, explore ways to make better use of the space in your existing closet.
Add Bar Storage
If serving drinks is your specialty, think about installing a home bar. If you don’t have that much space to spare, custom cabinets with glass doors are a good option. The transparent doors make it easy to find what you’re looking for and you can ensure that the cabinets are the perfect size for storing bottles, shakers, and other items you need.
Another alternative is customizing your pantry. Not only can you install shelves, bins, and wine racks for storage, you can also add counter space to create a designated drink mixing station.
Elevate Your Entertainment Center
Between movie nights, game day parties, and video game tournaments, your TV is often at the center of your gatherings. That means it should blend into the room seamlessly and cords should be hidden from view. When you add a beautiful new entertainment center to your living room, your TV will look great and you will have plenty of room to store cable boxes and gaming equipment. Customize your entertainment center so you have shelf and cabinet space around the TV for storing DVDs, board games, books, family photographs, and other items you need in the living room.
Make Room for Overnight Guests
Do you like to host your friends for fun weekends? Or do you want to make your home the designated spot for family holidays? Make sure your overnight guests have a comfortable place to sleep. If you don’t have a guest room or need to host multiple visitors, a wall bed is a valuable addition to your home. With a wall bed, you can effortlessly transform any room into a comfortable guest room and change it back when your guests leave.
