Small living spaces can be hard to handle for some. Not only do you feel boxed in (in some cases), you have to find solutions for problems with storage, with tight corners and also; you have to turn away overnight guests and even avoid entertaining guests sometimes. The last problem alone can be very hard to deal with—especially for those social butterflies.
But regardless to whether you are a social butterfly or not, you have to agree that family and friends are an important part of our lives. They lighten our hearts and fill our days with laughter. They guide you when you need them, and lend you a hand when you feel you can’t go on. They are what drag you out of the darkness in your weakest moments. And avoiding them, even if it’s for the lack of space, isn’t what’s best for you.
So here are our tips on how you can make sure to entertain your guests; simply by making a few changes with your furniture.
For entertaining guest during the day.
Anyone who has ever entertained guests will agree with us when we say that day guests/party guests are the easiest to please. All you need to do is provide them food and entertainment, and half your duties are done! In this case, cafe chairs Brisbane plays a huge part. If you don’t have enough space to install a big enough dinner table, then forget that options. Instead opt to buy modern furniture which gives you the opportunity to fold it out. This means you’ll be buying large enough furniture, only folded in to fit a small space.
If this too isn’t an option for you, then opt instead to entertain your guests in your kitchen itself. Install a breakfast bar or a chef’s bar; which will allow you to entertain your guests even as you cook for them!
Take the party outside!
Try as we might, it’s not easy to fit in more people than the house can hold; even for a short period of time. Not only will it make it hard to entertain, it’s also going to be very uncomfortable. Instead, make use of the outdoor space that you have—take the party outside!
Garden parties are great during spring, summer and if you play your cards right, even autumn. There are many party themes that are perfect for even small spaces outdoors. You don’t even have to have expensive garden furniture. Most outdoor cafe furniture will do quite well, even for homes, and they can be bought quite cheaply at furniture sales throughout the year (depending on where you live, of course!).

For the overnight guests.
Overnight guests are definitely a little harder to tackle with small spaces…but not impossible to either! If you have an extra room you use for another purpose, then convert it into a “part time” guest room. For example, if you have a room that you use as an in-home office during the day, convert it into a guest room, simply by installing a pull out bed or murphy bed. If you are really limited with space, even a day bed or futon will work just as fine. Just make sure to check for its comfortability to ensure that your guest has a good night’s sleep.
