Designing your home for Hosting Guests - Tips & Tricks

With the nightlife industry severely impacted during covid times in Singapore, its more important now than ever to ensure a backup plan at home. Creating the right environment is needed to host and entertain guests. Our designers have gathered a number of home renovations and interior design improvements can be completed for this purpose. Here’s how to design your Singaporean home for hosting and guest entertaining.

Figure out your entertainment

One should always figure out their main source of entertainment before doing any renovations. From dancing, video games, coffee talkers and board gamers, the manner in which you plan to entertain guests will help you pinpoint the home improvement that make the most sense.

For some Singaporean home owners, a large kitchen and a beautiful dining room will be essential. Others will focus setting up of an entertainment room that brags a full cinema or immersive gaming experience with top-of-the-line audio equipment. Think about your preferences and what your friends/relatives enjoy. These considerations will help you come up with interactive home improvements suited to the requirements of the specific activity.

Working with small spaces

While it does help to have a large house to entertain guests, it does not necessarily mean smaller houses are inappropriate to host parties and meetups. In home interior design, scale matters much more than size. This means every room can appear tidy and spacious if the right furniture pieces and accessories get chosen.

A scale that’s out of proportion will lose its charm and comfort. It will also impede the movement of people and effortless communication. Good coordination and an eye for detail will be required to determine the dimensions and scale of home items that are well-suited to the scale of your home. Opting for streamlined and even space-saving furniture that serves multiple purposes is always a good idea.

Set the mood with Lighting

Its well known that lighting can set the room's atmosphere. Through dimmed, warm lights, you can create an intimate ambiance for a friendly conversation. Bright lights are a good choice for parties during which you intend to play games or focus on other group activities that require good illumination. Opt for lights systems that are dimmable or even smart lights that allow for setting the exact colour, warmth and brightness are essential for setting the mood for movie nightss, intimate dinners or having little home dance party

Don’t Forget the Outside Space

For homeowners that owns a balcony or a beautiful terrace, the additional space does provide wonderful opportunities for hosting and entertaining guests. Do plan for some exterior improvements if you want to be considered the ultimate host. Some beautiful outdoor furniture, an exterior bar and a couple of charming lanterns can quickly transform your balcony into a magical outdoor party venue.

Adding a new function to your home’s interior is easy. You just need to have a specific idea about what you want to do and a solid partner to bring that idea to reality.
