6 remodeling ideas to up your home entertaining game

Before any work is done make sure you talk with your design-build team. Ensure that they know your families routine, your regular entertaining duties, processes, and desires! Ask some of your friends and regular guests what they think can be added to your space to make your home perfect for them!

1. Remodeling Ideas for the kitchen:
Install a kitchen island or breakfast bar

Your kitchen space is very sacred as the hearth of the home and you may find your family and friends always gravitating towards it. Installing a kitchen island or breakfast bar with proper seating can transform the space from any old kitchen to a kitchen worth entertaining in. Introducing these changes invites your guests to engage with you while you prepare dinner or snacks for the kids!

Allowing your kitchen space to open organically to your dining space or your living space also allows for direct communication and continued entertaining while you prepare to wow your guests with your culinary craft!

2. Remodeling ideas for the living room:
Create a separate seating space

Your kitchen shouldn’t be the only place that takes a change for home entertainment’s sake. Your living room space is a shared communal space that guests will also tend to gravitate towards. Whether you’re gathering up for the big game or having guests over for a night-cap, your living room space can be optimized for home entertaining

One remodeling idea you may consider is to develop a separate seating space for your home, one separate from the couches around the coffee table and television. This space can be used specifically for engaging in conversation and developing more intimate moments with your guests. This remodeling idea can also be taken across to other spaces for home entertaining, such as your basement!

Creating a separate seating area also allows you to break up your living room space well, less clutter all in one section and you home decor can be spread out accordingly!

3. remodeling ideas for the basement:
bring in an at-home bar

Basements are great spaces, when utilized correctly, to bring in your guests. Again, whether you’re creating a space just for the boys or you’re just trying to create a more mature space away from the kid’s, there are plenty of remodeling ideas that can be used to change the space.

One idea that we love is installing a full-service bar into the basement. Creating an entire functional bar allows you and your guests the opportunities to bring the party below, enjoying a nice drink and bringing in everyone to a smaller space for conversation.

4. remodeling ideas for the patio:
Add a four season room

If you’re really looking for a great home investment, consider taking on a home addition project for a four season room! When done correctly, with proper finishing, a four season room creates the perfect space for your guests to enjoy your backyard space and the changing seasons!

This also creates a space in your home for guests to collect and join in conversation with beautiful scenery! Bring in a seating area and some house plants that will make the space feel warmer and perfect for entertaining. Make it a great place to serve brunch. Plus, the four season room can work as a buffer for guests between the patio and the rest of your space.

5. home remodeling ideas for the patio:
Create a paved space with seating and heating

With the Summer months, your outdoor spaces can become more functional and habitable for your family and your guests! Your patio should be properly paved and designed for the best utilization. Create a seating area that centers around great features of your backyard, bring out a table for outdoor meals, fire up the new grill you got Dad for Father’s Day and have a BBQ!

When Fall and Winter comes, make sure you have heating solutions in place. Collect the seating area around the fire pit or get portable fire lanterns! Remodeling ideas for year-round home entertaining!

6. home remodeling ideas for the backyard:
add a custom pool house

One last remodeling idea we have is for your backyard, poolside! This last idea is perfect for the Summer months, invest in adding a custom pool house! A space where your family and guests can gather outside of the pool for drinks and food.

Plus having a functional space with everything you need for a poolside function saves you the pain of cleaning all of the water left from reentering the home over and over. Storage solutions that accommodates towels, extra cups and saucers, sunscreen, and everything else you can think of! Do yourself a favor and your guests and consider adding in a custom pool house!
