INTERIOR DESIGN TO WELCOME GUESTS INTO YOUR HOME

COME ON IN AND MAKE YOURSELF COMFORTABLE

As we begin to welcome guests back into our homes for the first time in many months the priority will be making sure our loved ones are safe. What once was second nature now feels strangely uncertain, as spaces that have become sanctuaries open up to social interaction again.

To help you along this path we have highlighted some smart interior – and exterior – design ideas that will allow your space to transition with ease. There’s nothing revolutionary here. After all, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel when all we really need is a reminder of what it could do.

GATHERING SPACE

No matter how many guests you are hosting, a great place to gather together is a must. It could be an informal seating area, a cosy corner or open plan living space but comfort is a must. Even the liveliest parties need a place for guests to sit down and relax.

Creating a gathering space in your home that retains an element of flexibility will allow your setup to evolve seemlessly as needs require. Think footstools that can double up as resting units, or spaced apart to provide individual seats. Occasional furniture that can also multitask to provide additional seating is also a useful addition.

PULL UP A CHAIR

A well designed, and easily operated, extendable dining table is your secret weapon in hosting guests for an indulgent meal in comfort – taking your dining space from intimate to social in less time than it takes to open a bottle of wine.

No matter whether you are working within a compact apartment or more spacious property, extandable dining tables allow you to make the most of your space whilst retaining the ability to switch it up for special occasions without anyone being relegated to the kids’ table. Unless you choose to of course.

FROM DAY TO NIGHT

Not everyone has the space or desire to dedicate an entire room of their home to occasional use in the form of a guest bedroom. As the demands on our homes increase we are increasingly looking for smart designs that facilitate multi functional spaces, and the classic soda bed is the original big hitter in this department.

Long gone are the days of clunky mechanisms and barely-there mattresses, that did nothing for the sofa bed’s reputation. Modern designs make a stylish addition to your home with the ability to provide wow factor with their functionality and comfort.

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

Socialising outdoors has always been a popular option when the weather allows, but now especially is great time to embrace the benefits of al fresco entertaining.

Stylish furnishings for external spaces are more easily available than ever, including options for lightweight pieces designed to make the transition from indoors to outdoors with you so that you don’t have to splash out on items that may only receive infrequent use. Style with cozy blankets to snuggle up under when the sun goes down and you’ll be all set.
