Preparing for a party can be very tedious. Some may even take months to prepare just to make sure everything goes as planned. If you love to throw parties in your home, it is important to always have a presentable area to accommodate your guests. You can choose to prepare months, weeks, or even days before an event or you can prep your home with a party-ready theme to make it easy to glam up when an actual party is about to take shape. Here are remodeling tips to turn your home into a party-ready venue.
Choose your furniture wisely
Your couch may be uber-comfy but it may not be the right type of chair for your guests to sit on. There is a wide range of furniture nowadays that are versatile enough for home and party use. Opt for tables that can be adjusted into a bigger serving top or chairs that can be easily moved from one place to another, so as not to limit the possible set-up for different events. Tall tables can also be used for quests to place their drinks on and then set aside as a stand for décor or plants when not in need.
Give your floor the attention it deserves
The floor may just be a walking area but you won’t believe how much guests take notice of it. It can make or break the entire appearance of a venue. Fortunately, you can opt for decorative concrete to achieve a more polished and sophisticated look without having to shell out big bucks. You can choose to have your floor look like marble, natural stone, or a metal speckled surface. One great thing about decorative cement floors is that it is easy to clean and maintain, definitely a bonus for party hosts. Ask for professional help with this to make sure you get the best results.
Invest in interesting conversation pieces
One host cannot entertain all guests at the same time. This is where conversation pieces come in. Choose something that you think would spark interest among your guests, such as controversial sculptures, paintings from well-known artists, or even family photographs. The great thing about these is that they can remain displayed even after the party is done. You won’t have to worry about having to take them out and then storing them back in every time.
Maximize your outdoor space
If your home is not big enough to accommodate all your guests, you can always make them comfortable outdoors. Seek the help of professional contractors so they can advise you on resurfacing concrete patio, installing hardscape, adding functional outdoor furniture, and more. You may also want to put some fire or water features, gazebos or pergolas, and any other fancy elements to make your outdoor space a lot more interesting and accommodating.
Install LED lighting effects
Lighting can add drama and enhance the ambience of any party venue. These can work indoors and outdoors. Opt for LED bulbs if you wish to install some. It may cost quite a bit for installation but it is very energy-efficient, thus, saving your money in the long run, regardless of how many parties you wish to throw.
