Home Style || Creating The Perfect Party Space

Home Style || Collaborative Post

Whether it’s just entertaining your household in lock down or you’re planning a big party in the months of freedom to come, having an entertainment area that is functional, luxurious, and inviting can go a long way in making the experience more relaxing and pleasurable. If your current entertainment area needs an update, or you are looking to create one from scratch, now is the perfect time, so here are some tips to keep in mind in order to create the perfect party place. 

Choose Your Space Wisely

Choosing the right space for your entertainment area is important as it could mean the difference between a space used on the daily and a room full of things that just collect dust. Indoor-outdoor entertainment areas are all the rage at the moment as they allow you to have the best of both worlds; wide-open spaces with lots of fresh air as well as a space to be warm and cosy should the weather not be favourable. 

If you’re looking to expand your home to create a new space, consider adjoining your entertainment area onto a high-use area like your kitchen so that you can stay a part of the party while you’re preparing the tasty snacks for everyone to enjoy.

Embrace Multifunctional Furniture

The correct use of space in your entertainment area is just as important as choosing the right place for it, so consider investing in some multi-purpose furniture in order to keep the room as functional as possible. Storage benches with removable cushions are functional and fun and, if your entertainment area does have an outdoors section, they can act as both seating and a place to store your cushions when they’re not in use to protect them from the elements. Storing your smaller outdoor items overnight is also a great way to deter thieves. 

If you are concerned about the theft of items from your outdoor area, then making sure your home insurance also covers the contents of your home is important for your own peace of mind. Thanks to sites like, you can compare contents insurance policy plans quickly and easily so you can find the best deal for your money. 

Use Durable Materials

To make sure that your entertainment area looks fantastic for years to come, you need to make smart decisions when you’re still in the planning stages and use materials that are long-lasting, durable and easy to clean. Consider using sealed tiles as your floor covering for an easy-to-clean solution that is cool in the summer and can easily be covered with small carpets during the winter months. For your furniture coverings, solution-dyed acrylics are ideal for indoor and outdoor areas as they resist fading and most spills just bead up on them rather than soaking in, so cleaning is easy and stains are an afterthought. 

Creating the ideal entertainment area in your home takes some planning, but the work will be well worth the effort come your next dinner party or family gathering when we can get back out there and see our families and friends!
