Top Denver Home Renovation Tips for Entertaining


February 19, 2016

With spring right around the corner, the weather is going to improve, which means it’s the best time to get your entertainment spaces set up. Maybe your parties are a little cramped for guests, not enough seating, no place to set up a buffet of food, or no place for friends to chat. It might be time for a home renovation that makes your entertaining space more functional. Consider starting a project like renovating outdoor living spaces Denver homeowners find most useful in terms of updating unused space. Here are a few other must-have makeovers for your home - start now so you are ready for entertaining for the rest of the year:

Kitchen - If you are entertaining guests, the number one entertainment necessity in the kitchen is having enough space to set up an array of foods. A kitchen island is a great solution and adding a couple of bar stools around the island adds an extra seating area for guests. When choosing countertops for your kitchen, an eye-catching new trend is using mixed materials. With all of the materials now available for countertops, combine the use of two different, but coordinating materials like granite and wood for a truly cutting-edge look.

Media Room - The basement is an ideal place for creating a media room because it can typically accommodate more seating in a single room and the entertainment system won’t be disruptive to the next door neighbors or the rest of the house. Create a wall with a built-in screen and speakers to keep the room free of visible cords.  And if you still have room to spare, wow your guests with a wet-bar! The basement of any house can be transformed into an ideal entertaining space.  

Patio - At home, there is no better place we like to be, than our back patio. Seating is essential for a party and a firepit makes the patio usable year-round! Game-watch parties are just as much about being with friends and family as they are about the game. A new patio with pavers, built-in seating, and a fire pit will give the social butterflies a chance to chat without distracting the game-day watchers.  Pavers are available in a variety of colors of styles and allow you to truly create any look you envision.  Adding charm and durability to your outdoor area, hardscapes allow for a clean, finished look to your space.   If you want to pull out all of the stops, incorporate a built-in grill to the area to truly make your space highly functional.
