Here are some clever tips and tricks you can use at your next soiree. We can give you practical ideas to properly illuminate the small space, to place your guests comfortably and to keep everything under control all the time.
The fact that you have a small room should not mean that you can not organize big parties. To help you make the most of your space and enjoy yourself, here are some practical tips that you will enjoy and will follow soon. No matter how big your apartment is, you can use every square meter cleverly and do the best even from a small living space.
Choose the right color palette!
As in any small room, a conversation area can visually appear larger if you use bright colors there. Consider white walls and leave some space for experiments. For example, you can paint a narrow wall in a different color (as in the picture above in black) and in this way put a strong accent in the room. It would be much better if your entertainment space feels more comfortable and lively than airy and minimalist. Be brave and use dark or dramatic shades on the walls. As already mentioned, they are a real eye-catcher in the room and create more coziness. And better mood, of course. You can also combine dark or vivid hues with pale shades. To create an interplay of colors and your room will only benefit. He would seem bigger and more energetic.
Pay attention to the color scheme of your favorite restaurant and draw new ideas from it! Keep in mind that every hue in artificial light looks different in the evening than in daylight. Watch as a color changes visually at different times of the day.
The room lighting has a key role in the room design
Speaking of lighting, we need to emphasize it here – in a recreation room, it’s especially important to have a well thought-out lighting scheme that can be controlled to create the right mood. Even in a small room, the classic ceiling lighting would not be enough, you need in any case more sources of light.
Modern wall lights can help to introduce more light in a dark room. Use dimmable lights or simply arrange several smaller lights in a group, so you can create more brightness or a soft light in the room. As you like it.
In addition to lighting, mirrors and other accents can set and create a pleasant feeling in a small room. Things like white picture frames or beautiful paintings always attract attention, while mirrors visually expand the space.
Organize seating for all guests
If you organize a party at home, then you will certainly be anxious to invite as many friends as possible and place them in the entertainment room. Do you have a big couch there? You would always use one of these! Your close friends can sit next to each other, shoulder to shoulder and have fun. Get more seat comfort and throw soft throw pillows or get some stools here and there. We recommend a dark padding, as there are no stains on it.
No large-scale furniture, rather small but versatile tables
In addition to comfortable seating, your guests will also need space to move, stretch or perhaps even dance their legs. Avoid large tables and other furniture blocking traffic or communication in the room. Also leave open areas that are particularly important in a small room. It’s better to use several small tables that you can quickly clear out of the way or change in seconds, if desired or necessary.
An oval or round table is usually very suitable for small spaces as it offers more flexibility. It is also certain that no guest encounters an edge. Round tables also make it much easier to accommodate an odd number of guests.
The drinks bar
One of the best ways to bring people closer together is to set up a beverage corner. There you can also offer appetizers. The establishment of a small drinks bar in a corner of the room would help you a lot. Your guests will certainly spend a lot of time there instead of standing in corridors or doorways.
Check the acoustics in the room
Besides the room lighting, you must also be able to control the acoustics at your party. The chatter of many people in a small room could soon turn out to be an unpleasant noise if you do not mind limiting the sounds in the room.
Use as many substances as possible to absorb echoes and noise, which is extremely important in a small room. In this regard, curtains, rugs, matching upholstery or canvas art are welcome to reduce the noise
Create an informal atmosphere
After all, in a room of all sizes, you need to think about the comfort of your guests. If your guests feel comfortable, free to move, then you do not have to worry. Create a casual atmosphere where everyone can relax. Choose lighter fabrics and light colors. For example, a white couch, a soft rug, and an antique vase would be very much in the spotlight to bring out your personal style of decorating.
We wish you pleasant party hours in your small entertainment space.
