Entertain in Style
From your gaming group to your Friday night crew, make sure your entertaining space fits your plans and creates an environment you can truly enjoy! Keep reading for tips and inspiration.
1. Gaming Night Right
There are a few things every gamer needs for entertaining their crew – and comfy seating is one of them! Adjustable seating means personalized comfort for all your guests. (Pictured are the GameZone Sofa and Recliners from Ashley Furniture.) When it’s time to put down the controllers and enjoy some snacks, make sure you have coffee tables and end tables within reach to avoid any mess and keep the fun going. Plus, surround sound speakers and track lighting make for great finishing touches on a gaming room you’ll never want to leave! Get your creativity flowing with these awesome gaming room designs.
2. Beautiful Brunch
Whether you’re celebrating something special or just want to spend some time with your favorite people over your favorite foods, host a brunch at your home and skip the restaurant tab! Plan for an indoor or outdoor get-together, set the menu, then get creative with a summer table setting design that is sure to impress. Stop by National Design Mart to pick up any furniture you need to make it happen!
3. Friday Night In
Skip the lines and the crowd and have fun in your own space. Incorporating a bar in your kitchen, basement or another space is a great way to add function fit for entertaining all your favorites. Styles include corner bars, 2-tiered, designs with and without sinks, wheeled carts and more – or move the party outdoors with an outdoor bar design. The possibilities of a well-designed bar are limitless! Check out these 15 amazing home bar designs for inspiration. Then all you need are enough stools or alternate seating for everyone to gather around in and enjoy the night. Visit National Design Mart when you’re ready to start planning with our in-store designers!
