Get Your Home Party Ready

Many folks in Singapore (as well as other Asian countries) are known for being warm and inviting, which is why it comes as no surprise that many social gatherings are often held right in the comfort of one’s home. So, the question is how welcoming is your humble abode when it comes down to you having to host a party for a bunch of friends or guests?

Unless you’re an extreme introvert, your home’s interior will probably be quite regularly viewed by people (friends, family…) and if you’re the outgoing type, this can hold especially true. If you find yourself having to host parties or gatherings and you’re worried that your decorations may be a little off-putting or that your layout can be quite bland, it might be time to spice things up, whether in the form of a quick renovation or through the interior styling to liven up your abode.

Here are some quick, yet useful tips to get your space ready for that upcoming home party.

Kitchen island

Apart from the living area, what’s the next most prominent place in your home during a gathering? It’s none other than the kitchen. In light of this, a good, organized kitchen that’s modern, stylish and trendy can really set the mood for a good time. A kitchen island is a great way to add a sense of luxury coupled with functionality.

Consider installing a mini drinks cooler that’s positioned conveniently in place, so that guests will be able to quench their thirst and get right back to the fun. In fact, having a fridge directly in the island itself can really optimize space.

Invest in a centerpiece for your dining table

A party isn’t complete without an array of good food to offer guests. In this case, your dining table is probably going to be a focal point. Make it look good! Invest in a great centerpiece that ties in nicely with the theme of the rest of the section, like an extravagant chandelier or some great home decor.

Remember to not get anything that’s too big, otherwise, you won’t be able to see the person in front of you while dining. Try something that fits the table shape and size nicely, or select floral choices to bring nature into your abode(depending on whether your current interior allows for that addition).

Invest in linen tablecloths, napkins, and dinnerware

What’s fancier than a row of stylish linen tablecloths and cutlery that’s fit for a king? Consider purchasing a few luxurious looking napkins and dinnerware to imitate the same ambiance you’d find at a 5-star restaurant. In fact, it can be a good idea to get dining table add-ons for different occasions in different colours and textures as well.

Having the in-laws over for dinner? Try gold or meticulously crafted cutlery along with pearl white cloths for a posh look or switch things up with dark brown or black colours for a more sultry vibe.

Have a unique design feature in your home

Let’s face it, sometimes throwing parties in your home can get a little awkward, particularly if it’s the first time you’re getting acquainted with your guests. A pretty easy fix can be to incorporate a unique design feature that functions as an ice-breaker. Let it stand out and be the talking point.

Try a fun and creative feature wall that’s eye-catching and unique, filled with interesting details or prominent imagery that stands out. Alternatively, art pieces hung in captivating frames on a wall or a quirky furniture piece can do nicely and capture attention.

Don’t neglect your bathroom design

When nature comes calling, you should do your best to make sure that it’s calling your guests to a spot that’s as nice as the rest of the home. Don’t rule out the importance of a stunning bathroom, your friends and family could very well thank you for it while being impressed at your taste in style at the same time.

In fact, if being bold in the main sections of your home scares you a little, the bathroom is one place where you can explore different design styles and let your creativity unfold. Interesting wallpapers, plenty of serene plants or a lavish combination textures and tiles can all contribute to a great looking bathroom.

Get a rug

Sometimes, segregating the different areas of your home can make guests feel more comfortable and provide subtle cues regarding where they should be and where they shouldn’t. An easy way to do this? Get a rug. It can not only amp up the interior but can also act as an indirect compass for people who aren’t familiar with your layout.

Of course, a party can get messy, so make sure you purchase low pile rugs or something similar that’s easier to clean the stains from.

Lighting of your home

Finally, lighting can say a lot about your interior. It can be used to emphasize unique focal points or set the mood for a romantic and relaxing time.

Set up accent lighting that focuses on particularly prominent areas or objects of interest. You can highlight certain art pieces or other artifacts throughout the space. If you aren’t sure about the mechanics and placement of lighting, you might want to discuss it with your interior designers as it is usually inconvenient to change once the renovation starts to fall into place.

Ultimately, it shouldn’t have to take too much to create a home suited for a great party or get-together with friends and family. As long as you’re willing to make a couple of adjustments to the different spaces of your home and get creative, you can expect to WOW your guests! Once you’re all done following the interior tips above, it’s time to celebrate with the people that matter most to you.
