Your dining room can be more than just a place to sit and eat. With a little creative thinking, you can turn it into an entertainment hotspot that will be the envy of all your friends and family. Here at Taskers of Accrington, we’ve been supplying our customers with a range of exquisite dining room furniture to fit a variety of styles for years, and we know just what’s required to turn your stunning dining room into an entertainment hotspot where you can host the most excellent dinner parties. So, here’s how you can do just that!

Add a mini bar

A bar is a great addition to any entertainment space, and your dining room is no exception. You can create a simple bar by adding a drinks cabinet or trolley with a few bottles of your favourite tipple and some glasses. We supply a wide variety of drinks cabinets, trolleys and wine racks for you to choose from here at Taskers of Accrington. Each one provides a perfect way to turn your collection into a beautiful focal point in your dining room.

Or if you have more space, you could install a full bar with a sink, refrigerator, and storage for your liquor and glassware. On particularly special occasions, you could hire a bartender to man your bar so you don’t even have to worry about making drinks!

Install a sound system

Good music is an essential part of any entertaining experience, and a sound system is a must-have for any entertainment hotspot. You can install a simple sound-bar or a full surround sound system, depending on your budget and preferences, but we can’t stress enough the importance of having one! A sound system is a great way of setting the ambiance within your dining room - if you’re hosting a themed evening, then the music you choose can help to elevate the experience. For example, a Great Gatsby themed evening would call for upbeat jazz, whereas an 80s theme would require party anthems from that era from artists like ABBA and Bon Jovi. Classic.

Add some vibrant lighting fixtures

Good lighting can make all the difference in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in your dining room. Think about adding some dimmer switches or installing some smart bulbs that can be controlled with your phone or voice commands, so you have full control over the mood emitted by your lighting. Alternatively, you could also add some decorative lamps or candles to create a cosy ambiance. Regardless of what you want, you’re sure to find something in Taskers’ lighting department to suit your style.

Turning your dining room into an entertainment hotspot is a fun and exciting project that can bring hours of joy and entertainment for you and your friends. Following these steps can help you transform your dining room into a vibrant space where you can enjoy the company of friends and family. What’s more, if you’re looking to raise the profile of your dining room with the addition of some exquisite designer furnishings, you’re in exactly the right place.
