Small spaces have plenty of perks – they’re compact, easy to maintain, cozy and generally charming. However, when it comes to entertaining, small spaces also have their drawbacks. If you live in a small home – such as a city apartment or tiny one-person condo – you may feel a little hesitant to host any sort of event.
You may fear that your living space is much too small for your friends or family to enjoy themselves comfortably. However, plenty of people across the world are making small spaces work in their favor. Here are some helpful tips.
1. Keep it Intimate – When it comes to entertaining in a small area, intimacy is really your only choice. The best way to use this to your advantage is to add to the coziness. To provide ample seating, lay out pillows around the coffee table, dim the lights and add some candles to create the right ambiance.
2. Keep it Laid Back – Everyone stresses over parties, but sometimes the best parties are the spontaneous ones. Sometimes all you need to ensure a good time is good eats, cocktails and upbeat music. Create a playlist to keep the mood light, set out a makeshift mini bar and, for food, set out a buffet. Allow people to help themselves so you’re not constantly doing all of the running around.
