Entertaining is something homeowners in Tampa love to do. Building features into your custom home to make that easier have become must-have’s in residential home building.  More and more homeowners want to be able to invite their family and friends over and show them a good time without feeling cramped in their living space. 

Make Entertaining in your Custom Home a Breeze

Designers recommend extending your house’s living space and adding features that are great for entertaining. It’s more convenient for owners, but it also increase the value of your home. To give you some options for your own place, here are some the most loved custom home features when it comes to entertaining.

Build an open layout

An open layout concept allows people to flow from one area of your home to the another and is one of the easiest ways to make any custom home perfect for entertaining.  Your guests, whether they are family or neighbors, can mix and mingle.

An open layout encourages people to mingle and talk because they’re all in the same open space. Furthermore, it’s more convenient for the host and hostess since food and beverages are all served from the same central location. 

Craft a multi-purpose kitchen

The kitchen. It somehow always draws people in and is one of the favorite places to congregate in during parties. Be sure to create this space to be functional but still spacious. You can add a bar to store and serve drinks, a long island or a breakfast bar with a few seats or benches and centerpieces that are great conversation starters

Entertaining can also means preparing larger than normal amounts of food. Planning your kitchen to include two ovens or even two dishwashers can help with Thanksgiving, holiday meals or any other celebration you’ve prepared.  

Choose Indoor-Outdoor Space

Opening up your entertaining area to include your lanai or patio is a great use of space for entertaining. Many Florida parties tend to spill out into the outdoor space.  Planning for entertaining in your outdoor spaces is equally as important as the indoor space.
