Five Things to Look For in a Home for Entertaining
With Thanksgiving just a couple of days away, entertaining is on a lot of people’s minds. Entertaining friends and family for Turkey Day (or any day for that matter) is easier when your house allows it. Here are a few things to look for in a home for entertaining.
A Warm Entryway
The entryway is the very first thing your guests see when they come to your home. If yours is warm and inviting, they’ll instantly feel at home. Make sure the space is neat and tidy but also include a coat rack or coat closet to give them space for their jackets and cold-weather accessories.
Spacious Living Room
Do your family get-togethers involve 10 or more people? It’s much easier to accommodate a lot of guests if there is enough space in the living room. The extra room will make it easier to bring in extra chairs to keep everyone comfortable.
Ample Dining Space
Similar to a living room, the size of a dining room is also important if your family is large. If you’ll be inviting a lot of guests over, look for a home with a formal dining room that can fit a large table. If that’s not enough, one with a breakfast room can be a great space for an extra table for your guests.
There’s nothing worse than having guests over for dinner or a party and not having a convenient bathroom. Find a home with a half bathroom near the entryway to make it comfortable for everyone.
If your family and friends like to gather in the kitchen, a kitchen with an island is a great idea. People can gather comfortably around an island while eating and drinking. It can also make a great space for appetizers or even a drink station!
