For many families across the nation, football season is the best time of the year! Hours are spent preparing for one day...gameday! Whether that's Thursday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday, family and friends come together for viewing parties to eat, play games, watch football and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Most of you have been to or have heard of viewing parties like this, but have you ever been the gameday host?
Maybe you feel like you don't have the right living room space to host a lot of people or maybe the idea of a dozen people crowding your kitchen gives you a major headache. But don't worry! Today I'm going to show you a few Clayton Built® homes that have the best living rooms for hosting, along with a couple other features that are nice to have for gameday.
On gameday, a home with an open floor plan or a spacious living room would be ideal for fitting a lot of people in one area without making them feel cramped. When setting up, a couple living room ideas to focus on are:
- Provide enough seating space
- Make sure your guests have a clear vision of sight to the TV
*Disclaimer: The temporary rearranging of furniture for optimal football viewing may occur when hosting a party for the big game
This Prefabulous® living room above is from the Powerhouse. Featuring a large entertainment center and plenty of open space for additional seating, if needed. A stylish entertainment center can allow everyone to have a good view in this open living room.
Another example of one of the best living rooms for hosting is The White OAK. This affordable, quality built home has plenty of seating and easy access from the living room to the kitchen through the dining area. Plus, this farmhouse inspired home offers the perfect setup for a big sectional couch!
The living room inside the gorgeous Normandy is perfect for six to eight people to gather around for the big game. With plenty of space and optimal viewing from every seat in the living room, this space makes for a perfect viewing party with minimal complaints from your uncle about not being able to see the game over your cousin's big head! Also, the close proximity to the kitchen doesn't hurt either!
These models are just a few examples of the beautiful Clayton Built® homes that would be great for hosting the next gameday shindig. Visit a home center near you to check out all the best gameday features Clayton has to offer!
