Creating Multi-Use Event Spaces
Creative DIY Project Ideas
Destination weddings and themed birthday parties have become popular since sites like Pinterest have made it easy to DIY almost any idea of creativity that comes to mind.
With the demand for event spaces increasing, you might be able to find a great use for your empty warehouse or dining hall. There are several ways to make an event-space compatible with several types of gatherings.
• Use Moveable Furniture
For your space to be attractive to more than just one party type, you will want to make sure your furniture speaks to the functionality or at the very least, can be removed. By installing rigid casters on larger items, such as a piano, PA equipment, lighting, or large seating options such as couches, your guests have several options to customize the space for their event.
Having platform sections or risers that can be installed and removed can also add a focal point to the room. Staging areas a huge draw for those looking to rent a space for a wedding or ceremony.
• Use Neutral Décor
Before setting your sights on hosting many parties, decide on a neutral but flexible décor scheme. Popular trends are working with country chic and southern charm elements, offering timeless and classic appeal to event needs of all types.
For those booking your venue for a wedding or large-scale receptions, the colour palette should be made from calming pastels or earth tones, as they blend easily with a host of colour hues. For baby showers, birthdays, or less formal events, you can use party décor packages to change up the environment and make it more appropriate.
• Invest in Lighting
The lighting in event spaces should be pleasant and welcoming, setting tones and moods fore vents of all occasions. Dimmer switches and track lighting can help isolate certain locations within the space, creating an ambience that works for the theme of the party or event.
Install a comprehensive sprinkler system if you are going to allow the use of candles within your space. Candles are often desired for mood lighting but come with an increased risk of fire.
• Advertise with Purpose
If you want your venue to become a multi-use space, make sure your marketing plan represents the possibilities. Stage your space for a variety of gatherings and have a professional photographer capture the best parts and angles for your advertising. By giving a sneak peek of the possibilities, it will be easier for potential clients to imagine their vision in your space.
