One of the most exciting parts of buying a new house and moving into it is personalizing it. You must always try to make your house and entertaining place as it will help enhance your living experience.Not to mention your whole family will be happier and appreciate your home a lot more. There are many things you can do to make your house and appealing place for both children and adults. Here are six great ideas for making your house the most entertaining place on the planet for you and your family.
Movie Nights For an Entertaining Place
You don’t need to have a fancy projector or plush seats in order to host movie nights. Simply ask your family what movie they would enjoy watching and set everything up for a particular day of the week. Between Wednesday and Friday are always great choices. Simply make sure you have the film you want to watch, set up enough comfy seats for everyone, make some popcorn, turn the lights down or off and let the movie take over. Although there is usually little dialogue involved, watching a movie as a family is a great bonding experience.
Backyard Common Area
Another great way to encourage family bonding is to have an outdoor common area. Set up a grill and a few seats in your backyard and it will immediately attract all family members. You may even think about hosting a family grill out on a weekend and invite a few friends and neighbors, but always try to keep it casual. Backyard common areas are great ways to bring everyone together and make your house and entertaining place.
Plant Trees & Nature Aids
This one works particularly good if you have kids in elementary or middle school. Trees and nature aids (such as bird baths or feeders) will give your family something money can’t buy. Beautiful trees and flowers will attract wildlife to your backyard such as butterflies, squirrels, birds and even the occasional gecko. And we all know children love animals, so give them a source of entertainment while making your house a greener place and a more entertaining place to live even for the animals.
Make it Modern and Sophisticated.
Traditional and antique house designs are visually appealing but are often expensive and unpractical. Sacrifice the beauty of old styles for modern, slick room designs and kitchen layouts. Set up a few shelves with books and board games and leave a lot of open space so your children can run around without breaking anything or tripping over heavy furnishing.
Humans love music. All of us do. There is something about catchy tones (and not so catchy, like heavy metal) which attracts all humans. Set up a sound system in your common areas and play some relaxing tunes to create the right environment. You can even encourage your family members to play some of their favorite tracks, as long as they don’t puncture anyone’s eardrums.
This doesn’t mean spend thousands of dollars on the latest reclinable couch. Simply make sure you have a comfy seating area big enough to fit all your family at once. Pair this one with movie nights and your family won’t get enough of it.
