With the holidays coming up, many homeowners are thinking about how to decorate their space, what food to serve, and activities to keep their guest occupied. However, when planning a party in your current space seems daunting, hosting becomes more of a chore rather than a fun opportunity. If you’re thinking that it’s time for a change, here’s some ideas to consider in your home remodel.

Open Kitchen with Island

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and that’s definitely true when you’re hosting. This is usually the place for guests to grab food or hang out, and an open plan will definitely make it easier to chat. Plus, the host will have more room to work, and they could even turn it into a fun activity like cookie decorating. When it’s more of a sit-down party, including a large island with stools will make it easy to gather guests and offer them places to sit down.

Dining Room with Large Table

For families that love to host, a dining room will be invaluable—especially if they can fit in a large table. Some homeowners may think it’s a waste of space until they think about all the different holidays, celebrations, birthdays, family dinners, and so much more that happen throughout a year. With a big table, gathering everyone in your home will be the least of your worries.

Wet Bar with Seating

Save yourself the trouble of dealing with crowded bars and have your own wet bar in your home. Learning how to make drinks can be a fun hobby and a way for homeowners to impress their friends. Plus, depending on the shape of your bar, it can become the main event in your home. Invite friends over for a fun occasion like a cheese and wine tasting night, and they can hang out at your home bar all night long.

Expanded Living Room

If cozy is more your speed, then expanding your living room and its sitting space may be exactly what your home needs. Remodeling the floor with an open floor plan—focusing on a larger living room—will help your entire home feel less cramped and brighter. Then homeowners can fill the room with more furniture and redesign the space to enhance features like a fireplace, mounted TV, gaming system, etc. Invite friends over for a movie night, to watch sports, or for a gaming tournament.
