What better way to greet a new season than by gathering your loved ones together? As the weather cools down and outdoor parties aren’t always an option, it’s time to think about how you can use the inside of your house for your next get-together. Our team at The Canyons™ has collected a few ideas to help you make the most of interior space with your friends and family.
The Entertaining Great Room
Often considered the heart of a home, your great room provides the space and convenience you need for entertaining. When you invite friends over for a relaxed weekend brunch, your open floorplan ensures you have ample room for everyone to sit back and enjoy your thoughtfully crafted breakfast spread. The high windows welcome in Colorado sunshine to create a lovely ambiance — picture cups of coffee with your best friends as you all take in the slow start of the day.
The Loft Flex Space
From home theaters to craft areas, loft rooms give you additional space to use as you see fit. If your kids are looking to make an impression on their friends, have them invite over classmates for a movie marathon or gaming night. Thinking about hosting your college buddies during a homecoming weekend? Transform the room into your own personal cocktail lounge — simple additions like a bar cart and stools will have everyone reminiscing about good times. You can even keep it low-key and use the area as an additional living room by including cozy chairs and cushions for your next book club meeting.
The Open Dining Room
When it comes to major holidays and events, sometimes traditional hosting is the route to take. Whether you’re planning a dinner party or just a laid-back evening with extended family, your dining room provides an attractive and homey atmosphere. The open floorplan of your home at The Canyons™ showcases your interior décor — perfect for intriguing conversation starters. For larger groups, use your dining room as an appetizer station so guests can graze from tempting choices like charcuterie boards and fresh crudités.
Although summer is still here, it’s always smart to prepare for a shift in seasons and start getting inspired for your autumn entertaining.
