Graduations are a great time to celebrate with friends and family! Graduation open houses, parties, and family dinners are all great ways to mark the accomplishments of your family member. If you have plans to host a graduation celebration at your home this spring or summer, the time to start thinking about making your home party-friendly is now!
Here are four great home improvement tips sure to make your party a huge success:
Since the food is usually the main show at any grad party, make sure your kitchen and eating spaces are up for the challenge! Is now the time to remodel your kitchen and add that spacious island you’ve been wanting? Take a peek at these inspiring kitchen islands that are party-friendly and practical every day. How about rearranging to make room for a breakfast nook, complete with extra seating like a bench along one wall? Don’t forget to borrow extra chairs and get creative about making extra surfaces available for plates and cups — stools or crates make great make-shift tables!
Be Ready for Foot-Traffic:
As guests wander through your home, is there a natural flow, or will people collide? Would removing a wall and opening up your space make your home more party-friendly? Or perhaps now is a good time to get rid of that outdated carpet. There are a wide array of amazing faux wood products on the market that are more durable than ever. This is also a great time to test out rearranging furniture as necessary or add in some fun rugs, like one of these!
Be A Master of the Outdoors:
Or at least conquer your backyard. Maybe it’s time to get to work on that deck you’ve been talking about. Or does your patio needs updating? If you want to go all out, consider the idea of adding an outdoor kitchen space. Whether it’s just a grill and an outdoor food cart, or a completely built-in stove, sink, and countertop, the ideas are endless. You’ll appreciate it at party-time and all summer long!

If your graduation events mean you’ll be hosting friends or family from out of town too, then now is the time to think about your guest accommodations. Do you have a spare room that needs organizing? Perhaps it’s time to add a new bathroom or update the guest bath? At the very least, make sure it’s stocked with thoughtful conveniences, like extra toothpaste and luxurious towels, for your out of town visitors.A few changes, big or small, and you’ll have a house (& party) your guests will be raving over!
