If you love hosting friends and family at your place, you know that having the right equipment is key – both to how much your guests enjoy the event, and how much work it takes to put on! If you’ve already got the basic set-up, like enough glassware, good seating, and somewhere to put people’s coats, it might be time to take the next step in entertainment.
We talked to the experts at Noel Leeming Tech Solutions about the tech you need to turn your house into entertainment central.
Where would any gathering be without music? It lifts a big party or sets a peaceful backdrop to a simple drink with friends. Choosing a great sound system is a must-have, but for a really big night, a multi-room speaker set-up will ensure everyone feels right in the action – even if they’re in the kitchen!
Light the scene
Whether you’re hosting an intimate dinner party or a 100-person knees-up, getting your lighting right can make all the difference. Clever new gadgets make it easy to adjust the tone to suit your event – and go back to normal when it’s just you reading a book in the evening!
A dimmer switch in your entertainment area is a great first step, but smart bulbs can take things further. Change colour at a touch of the app, and connected to other smart devices your lights can be set to change with the weather, the music, the time of day or even to tell you your canapes are finished baking.
Even better? The set-up is simple – just screw the smart bulbs into your existing light fittings! You can also add lighting features, with strips or panels to add cool features to your party areas. Entertaining outside? Make sure the ambience continues with great outdoor lighting.
A night (at home) at the movies
Hosting game night? Having people around to watch that new blockbuster? A great home entertainment system is crucial to keep them coming back for more. If setting up a new system feels like it could be a hassle, you can make it easy by calling in the experts at Noel Leemings – they have a special TV set up service.
Kit out the kitchen
Hosting gatherings are fun, but they’re a lot of work – especially if you don’t have the right kitchen equipment. Things like enough fridge and freezer storage and an easy-to-use oven can make catering for people a lot easier. Fun gadgets can also form the centrepiece of parties – whip up waffles for brunch, blend up ice for cocktails, and serve a range of drinks with SodaStream. Again, you can leave delivery, install and testing to the expert at Noel Leemings.
When the guests are gone and the dust has settled, getting the house back into order is faster when you have the right equipment. Think a decent vacuum cleaner and a dishwasher that actually washes dishes.
Tech help to get party-ready
Like most things in modern life, when it comes to entertaining, tech really makes things better. Set the mood with sound and lighting, create delicious food at the touch of a button or two, and set everything straight afterwards with labour-saving devices. It’s all about making things more fun for your guests and easier for you.
