Our Favorite Floor Plans For Entertaining Family and Friends This Holiday Season
The month of November brings with it the joy and festivities of the holiday season—as well as the preparations for gatherings with family and friends. From cooking together to watching the football games to hosting holiday parties, this time of year is filled with moments to enjoy and memories to make surrounded by the people you love most.
At Riverside Homebuilders, we know how important it is to have a comfortable place to spend time with loved ones during the holiday season and beyond—which is why we design each of our floor plans throughout our DFW communities with the perfect combination of spaces for privacy and gathering to give our homeowners the best of both worlds. To get into the holiday spirit, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite, brand-new floor plans for entertaining family and friends.
With a beautiful entryway leading to bright windows and a breathtaking living area that’s sure to impress all types of guests, The Aster floor plan is a 3,130 square-foot, 5-bedroom gem that is easily a favorite for entertaining. As you enter the first floor of the home, the remarkable foyer opens up into the main living area that was specifically designed for gathering with loved ones in a large, cohesive space. High ceilings hover over a comfortable family room with a fireplace, which leads directly into the large dining room and designer kitchen—complete with a huge island and an abundance of counter space that gives everyone plenty of room to help out with big holiday meals. After dinner, guests can either cozy up by the fireplace, escape to the loft area upstairs or enjoy the outdoors on the covered back patio—which is big enough for an outdoor kitchen and dining area to elevate your holiday event even further.
The Camelia floor plan is a stately two-story home with endless reasons to host family and friend get-togethers year-round. Guests are graciously welcomed into this home by the grand foyer and gorgeous curved staircase—which leads to a sizable loft area that’s perfect for an additional gathering space. Strategically located by the bottom of the stairs, you’ll see the captivating family room directly next to the dining room and gourmet kitchen to make everyone feel included. A massive island is placed in the center of the kitchen, which is big enough to hold a turkey, ham, an array of desserts and nearly limitless side dishes—allowing for plenty of space for the best family dinners and amazing opportunities for hosting events. Off of the dining room is where guests can enjoy the indoor-outdoor lifestyle that Riverside Homebuilders upholds throughout all of our floor plans—with an ample-sized covered patio that’s perfect for outdoor games or dining.
As an innovative layout with unique features and extreme appeal, The Lantana floor plan is truly unparalleled when it comes to spaces for gathering and entertaining. This four-bedroom, 3,426 square-foot home will make it hard for guests to want to leave—especially with the second-floor game room that makes for the perfect space for a pool table, video game area or at-home theater. The picturesque front porch of the Lantana leads you into the light-filled dining room at the front of the home, providing wonderful views and an overall incredible space for family and friends to enjoy a home-cooked meal together. Further down the foyer is where the main living area lies, which makes for a beautiful space for memories to be made and joy and laughter to fill the air. The sizable family room is placed just off the thoughtfully-designed kitchen to feel extra unified, and the substantial island and counters provide more than enough space for all kinds of food dishes. Family and friends will also find a nook that leads to the lovely covered patio—great to turn into a holiday-themed area, where guests can store gifts under the tree and embrace the season of happiness in a space that feels like home for everyone.
The Magnolia is a stunning four-bedroom home with two stories that are full of spaces for entertaining from top to bottom. After guests have walked through the gorgeous foyer and dreamlike grand staircase, they’re greeted with the main living area—made up of the stunning family room, inclusive dining room and chef-inspired kitchen that’s full of top-rated appliances and a massive island for the ultimate holiday spread, as well as extra seating. The covered back patio is connected to the family and dining areas, and its size nearly takes up the length of the whole house—perfect for an outdoor happy hour or movie night with a projector, some outdoor furniture and a few lights! Additionally, the upstairs boasts a spacious loft area that looks down to the main living space, which is where you’ll likely find the kids in their own retreat after a fun day full of family time.
Lastly, the one-of-a-kind, ample-sized Sabana floor plan is full of unique features and exceptional attention to detail, and it’s one of our favorites for entertaining for a multitude of reasons. This two-story, five-bedroom home provides a bright, airy layout with an array of windows that let in warm natural lighting while showing off the outdoor scenery. Through the foyer, you’ll find an open-concept living space that’s big enough to fit the entire extended family—made up of the family room with high ceilings, a beautiful dining area, and a gourmet kitchen with a sizable kitchen island and ample counter space for everyone to pitch in on food preparations. The family room features a grand corner fireplace to cozy up on chilly nights, as well as immaculate views of the covered back patio—where family and friends can take advantage of the DFW sunshine, even on colder days. You’ll also find an upstairs loft space that serves as a great media room—perfect for Sunday football watch parties or holiday movie nights.
