It helps to have a large, open kitchen on the days when families and friends congregate in your home. If you plan on doing the cooking, you may need to set some boundaries, so you can pull bacon-wrapped shrimp out of the oven without guest interference. An island is an ideal way to create a wall between food prep and social spaces, as shown in Plan 928-10 by Visbeen Associates. Islands, which have become fixtures in new home design, also come in handy for putting out appetizers and drinks during a party.
People who entertain regularly may want a separate prep kitchen for the dirty work of cooking. These rooms, equipped with ovens, ranges, refrigeration, storage, and maybe even warming ovens, are great for caterers. They free the kitchen to be used as a party hangout.

Similarly, if you plan to encourage visitors to go outside, it helps if the door to the porch or deck is located in the family room or great room.

Ample front-hall closets used to be a given in new-home design. These days, you need to double-check to make sure they are big enough for guests to leave coats, gloves, hats, and maybe even boots. Having an office or guest room near the front door for leaving these items is a nice luxury, as illustrated by Gardner Plan 929-29, above.
