Designing Your Home for Entertaining

This new home by Rosmond Custom Homes is ideal for convivial get-togethers

If you’re building a new home and you love to entertain, you’re probably already planning the house-warming party.

Then there’s your first family Christmas party. A footy final party. A kindy mums party. And a full social calendar of all kinds of other memorable get-togethers for family and friends. Any excuse will do.

So what ideas can make your home a great entertainer? Starting from scratch with a custom home means you can incorporate all the home entertaining ideas that make your living space an inviting and convivial setting for parties and social occasions.

This new home recently designed and built by Rosmond for a client in Scarborough showcases the three most wanted features for entertaining at home in Perth. So turn up the music and pour the drinks – it’s time to mix and mingle.



A Sociable Kitchen

A Sociable Kitchen
From its life-affirming wall of words to double oven, this kitchen is an entertainer’s dream
Ever noticed how everyone gathers in the kitchen at parties? When you’re designing your home for entertaining, the kitchen is definitely the life of the party. It needs to be a place with the pulling power of the latest hipster bar, and also a practical place from which to feed and water the masses.

In this kitchen designed and built by Rosmond Custom Homes, even the quote on the wall carries a life-affirming message that’s a great conversation starter.

A long island bench is a design feature that’s always a sociable and versatile centrepiece for entertaining. Equal parts bar, food servery and meeting hub, there’s something about pulling up a stool to a bar that gets people in the mood for a good time.

Your cooking appliances are an important decision when it comes to designing your home for entertaining. The luxury of two ovens may be a substantial investment but it’s well worth it if you like to entertain because a kitchen that’s well kitted out makes entertaining easy.

A scullery is another kitchen idea you may like to consider. An open kitchen may look sleek and modern but it has a downside – mess in full view!  That’s where a scullery can come to the rescue. A scullery is a hidden preparation and pantry zone that allows the hosts to exercise their culinary creativity to the messy max but keeps the mess out of the sightline of guests. An idea worthy of a Michelin star for the neat freak home chef!



Open Plan Layout

Open Plan Layout
When designing your home for entertaining, an open layout invites guests to mix and mingle

When designing your home for entertaining, a spacious open plan layout with a casual vibe creates the perfect party setting and invites the free-flowing mixing and mingling of guests of all ages.

People are more inclined to move around freely and talk to different people in one big open space. And best of all, the food and drinks in the kitchen are never far away.

The open plan living area in this new home in Scarborough by Rosmond Custom Homes is light, bright and ideal for entertaining. 



Indoor Outdoor Flow

Indoor Outdoor Flow
A seamless flow between indoors and outdoors makes this home a great entertainer

Sunny Perth is famous for its outdoor lifestyle – and we like to entertain that way too.

Social gatherings have a tendency to spill out from the indoors to the outdoors, whether that involves the classic Aussie barbecue or simply getting some fresh air under wide open skies. All of which makes planning your outdoor space for entertaining just as important as planning your indoor space when it comes to designing your home for entertaining.

In this Rosmond home in Scarborough, the indoors living area links seamlessly with the alfresco area which extends the space for entertaining guests and provides a relaxing sanctuary overlooking the swimming pool. 



At Rosmond Custom Homes we’d love to help you make your home an entertainer’s dream. As a luxury custom home builder we offer you the freedom to choose the look, feel and finishes you prefer.

It all starts with a conversation – the first meeting is on us and there’s no obligation. So contact us now and we’ll make time for a chat.
