5 Must-Have Features for Entertaining in Your New Custom Home

If you are the type who loves hosting events in your home and you are planning a new custom home, there are features that you absolutely will want to include in your new home build.

Here are 5 Must-Have Features for Entertaining in Your New Custom Home:

  1. A Modern, Open Kitchen Design –  Your kitchen will be the center of activity in your home and especially so when entertaining friends and extended family. The must-have kitchen design for those who love to entertain is an open kitchen and great room concept. These designs feature larget kitchens with open spaces where people can congregate. Ideally, these designs include a large kitchen island where you can seat 5-7 guests at a time.
  2. Outdoor Living features –  For those who love to entertain, there are several features you’ll want to consider.
      • A fully equipped outdoor kitchen – An outdoor kitchen is ideal for entertaining. You’ll want a grill, refrigeration and ample food preparation counter space at a minimum. Adding a wine cooler and a smoker might be good additions.
      • Covered outdoor seating – Typically flowing from the indoor area to the outdoor living area, this covered seating makes entertaining a breeze.
      • A fire pit for cool nighttime entertaining – We don’t get them often, but for those cool Florida evenings, there is nothing quite like gathering around the fire pit.
  3. Guest Rooms –  If you are the type to entertain into the wee hours, guest rooms are a must-have. With guest rooms, you can also accommodate friends and relatives visiting Florida from out of town.
  4. Wet Bar / Wine Room –  Face it, a wet bar and/or wine room make a home more luxurious. But installing a wet bar in between the high traffic kitchen and dining room areas creates the perfect place for gathering without creating a roadblock. This is the perfect spot to add a wine cooler or refrigerator, making it easy to serve drinks to your guests.
  5. Main Floor Bath Room – Homeowners who like to entertain will want to have a main floor “powder room” for guests. Locate this room near the great room, kitchen or outdoor living area making it convenient for guests. This will avoid the need for guests to walk through more private areas of your home.
