Entertaining Area Renovations & What You Should Think About!

Entertainment Areas

Dreaming about the amazing parties that you could host in your home this summer? Maybe you’ve felt that your house needs a little TLC first, before inviting your friends and relatives? You’re in luck! Entertaining area renovations are our speciality; whether its indoor, outdoor or both, entertaining areas are the heart of every home. They’re the space where everyone comes together for parties, dinners, and conversation.

We understand how important it is to create a welcoming space that everyone will enjoy, and we’re here to turn your hosting dreams into a reality! Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to entertaining area renovations!

Make The Most of Your Space!

When it comes to indoor and outdoor entertaining area renovations, the first thing you need to consider is space. Measuring the area will go hand in hand when deciding on furniture, walk-way access, and other essentials such as appliances. You don’t want to design an area and then realise the new dining table you purchased takes up all the room!

If you don’t have space to play with, creating a sense of cohesion between the area is key. Think about open floor plans, open doors, possibly even removing a wall to open the space up. Maybe even a large feature glass window will open the space up, giving the optical illusion that the area is larger than it is, and natural light is always a bonus!

If it’s an outdoor entertaining area that you’re working with, and you have the space, you may want to consider creating several zones that cater to all your needs. These zones are great for large families, and can include dedicated areas for entertaining, grass for the kids and pets, and a BBQ area for the guys to gather around on a Sunday with a few beers.

Where to Go Next!

Have you ever watched Better Homes & Gardens, or even the Block, and it’s got you in the mood to renovate your house, but you just don’t know where to start? Start with looking at the area, measure it out, then go through these simple questions!

  • What are the must-haves and wish-list items you want for the area?
  • What is your budget?
  • What is your ideal design style? Think colour, flooring, materials, walls, even light fixtures!
  • How important is sustainability to you?
  • Are you planning this house to sell (think value!), or is it going to be your forever home!

Once you’ve answered these questions, start hunting for inspiration. If you’re renovating your indoor entertainment area, do you want open-plan living? Bi-fold doors? Open glass windows, with easy access to the backyard? Where do you want your couch, TV and other furniture placed for best functionality? It comes down to placement, which direction does the sun come up and go down in your entertainment area, you don’t want to be putting a TV on a wall that gets the most sun – no one likes glare.
