Having guests over is great but sometimes we struggle to find that extra space or set up the perfect ambiance. Here are some ideas to improve your home that will help you entertain all your guests:
Buy an entertainment centre
Do you want to watch a movie on a big screen with friends? Or maybe you want to invite some people round for a game night or you simply want some background music on while you and your guests catch up over a homemade meal? An entertainment centre can allow you to do all this in a compact, modern way. Place your TV in the middle and store any consoles, games, movies and CDs right next to it in an organised unit. Perfect for those looking for extra storage without compromising on entertainment.
Consider adding a conservatory
One of the easiest ways to create more space and have a dedicated entertainment room all-in-one is to add a conservatory. Great for guests and homebodies alike, a conservatory offers a great new addition to any home – if you have the expansion space needed to begin with of course. You can even have one fitted specially for your entertainment needs. For instance, do you require a second living space for up to 5 or more family guests/friends or are you looking for a smaller expanded space simply for your neighbours and/or pets? Then look no further than a conservatory. It’s an easy solution to where to put the guests and it may be the change your home is looking for, especially if you’re the type to have big family gatherings or movie nights and struggle to find that extra space.

Install some new doors
Do you already have a conservatory/patio? Or maybe a garden you want to show off with the minimal amount of effort possible? Certain doors can do certain things – well, other than open and close that is. Bifold doors offer extra incentives to anyone who loves to entertain. The bifold shop has all the bifold doors you could ask for – their folding design technology gives you easy access to any room in the house and/or garden. With a simple push of a door, the rest compress, creating an open space perfect for a large amount of guests. Say goodbye to unsightly chunky doors and their pointy handles, and hello to an elegant, slimline design that gives you the space you’re looking for. Upgrading your doors has never seemed so inviting!

Don’t forget about lighting
Lighting plays an important role in a room. You can brighten up a space with white light, or create a cosier, more romantic feel with a dimmed light. When it comes to entertaining guests, the lighting can make all the difference to the mood in the room. Invest in some coloured light-bulbs or go a step further and install some colour-changing LED lights. They would be the perfect addition to any hosting event, showing that you go the extra mile to make your guests feel welcome.
Chairs outside, on the patio, inside the conservatory, living room or kitchen deserve some well-needed attention. They are the objects that can dramatically change one’s get-together – no one is going to stay long sitting on a painful seat! Spend some time looking for comfortable chairs and cushions to optimise your guests’ needs. Don’t sacrifice comfort for design, have both and make sure to test them out yourself, if you can see yourself napping in it, it’s probably a good buy.
