Does your family regularly hold gatherings for friends, neighbors, or even business colleagues? When you host guests, your home is a reflection of your style and values. And by building new, you have the opportunity to use your unique flair to create a home that is sure to impress even the most discriminating guest. You can also make entertaining easier by choosing a floor plan that offers modern features that older, resale homes don’t.
Open common areas are the backbone of entertaining. Your guests will appreciate having plenty of space to mingle, while still feeling like a part of the action. Today’s floor plan designs offer a spacious kitchen that overlooks the family room and the informal dining area, perfect for placing appetizers or desserts. These open spaces often feature a beautiful built-in fireplace, a stained beam ceiling, and hardwood flooring for the perfect “wow” factor.
Gourmet Chef’s Kitchen
Investing in a beautiful kitchen is a must for entertaining. It should include a large island for guests to gather around, a stainless steel double oven for quick prep, and an abundance of cabinet and countertop space. Look for the latest must-have entertaining feature – a working pantry. Plus, consider these kitchen favorites popular among Drees homebuyers: painted cabinet finishes, tiled backsplashes, and see-thru wine bars.
Once you’ve decided on the perfect interior layout, consider expanding your entertaining space even further by adding a relaxing outdoor living area. You can choose from a variety of options to fit your needs, from a covered outdoor living area that is an extension of your home to a sprawling custom deck. Plus, add a built-in fireplace and flat screen TV so you don’t miss the game. On a beautiful summer night, this space is sure to be a guest favorite!
Choosing a floor plan with a guest suite ensures that your visitors have a convenient place to stay. Plans with a guest suite located on the first floor are ideal for added convenience. Many Drees guest suites also include an extended bedroom with sitting area, tray ceilings, a private bath, and a walk-in closet for storage.
Incorporating these in-demand features into your new home’s floor plan will make entertaining easy and fun. Your next dinner party may just be the talk of the town!
