Creating Spacious Living Areas for Entertaining Family and Friends

By combining two rooms, such as a living space and kitchen, you can create an inviting atmosphere for entertaining family and friends. Here are two examples of how to create one entertainment area out of two separate spaces :

Combine the living room and outdoor patio to create one space for entertaining.

1. OUTDOOR PATIO & INDOOR LIVING ROOM/DINING ROOM:  This living room and outdoor patio combination makes a perfect place for summer parties or fall festivities. Simply open the beautiful French doors between the two rooms to create one beautiful and spacious entertainment area.

DESIGNER TIP:  We hid the television behind a paneled wall above the fireplace to add more versatility to the living room.


Having the kitchen open into the living room allows for easy conversation between cook and guests

2. KITCHEN & LIVING ROOM: With this open living room and kitchen floor plan, the cook can finish dinner while still being a part of the conversation making it perfect for parties or even preparing family meals.

DESIGNER TIP:  Repeating the colors between the kitchen and family room give the space a feeling of one room.
