Top 5 Floor Plans for Entertaining

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are a time for family and friends, and as we move into the holiday season, our minds automatically turn to entertaining. Is your home ready? One of the top reasons for building a new home is having the ability to design a home to fit your needs…including entertaining.

As a custom home builder, we offer a wide range of features and floor plans that keep everyone in the conversation. From open kitchens to amazing great rooms, we have the home features you want to create the perfect environment for holiday gatherings.

Here are our top 5 floor plans for entertaining:


This is our most popular floor plan because it is so open. The open concept great room and kitchen invite your guests to grab something to eat or drink and take a seat. Whether you’re in the kitchen or the great room, everyone stays connected. As seen in the Newark Montgomery model, when you host a more formal affair, your guests can move to the formal dining room to enjoy a meal together. The flex space across from the dining room is the perfect spot for the grown-ups to enjoy coffee after dinner, while the kids play in the great room.


This smaller ranch floor plan uses every inch of its 1,673 square feet of living space wisely. Its wide-open great room and kitchen make entertaining a breeze, and it’s a great find because even with its smaller footprint, the Camden has carved out space for a separate dining area.

Providence II

The shining star of the Providence II is the kitchen island that overlooks the great room and dining room. This is perfect for entertaining, so the cook can still be with guests while in the kitchen. With more than 1,700 square feet of living space, the Providence II is a great place to call home for the holidays.

Cedar Hill

The Cedar Hill plan takes a comfy great room, a spacious kitchen and a bright breakfast nook, and brings them together around an island with an eat ledge. This floor plan’s open concept layout is great for the holidays. The Cedar Hill feels so spacious, while keeping everyone close.


Like the Cedar Hill, the Charleston has an open concept great room, breakfast room and kitchen. But, the oversized kitchen island is the standout feature that homeowners love. With plenty of room for additional seating, the island is the hub of the home. Also, like the Cedar Hill, the den/office could be converted into a formal dining room. With four bedrooms and the loft space, there is plenty of space for guests to stay overnight for the holidays–so the party doesn’t have to stop!
