If hosting dinner parties and holiday events makes your heart happy, here are some things you may consider when purchasing your next home.

BUTLER’S PANTRY

ENTRYWAY
If you plan on having visitors regularly, add a proper entryway to your “must-have” list—a warm space to welcome to your guests will immediately set them at ease. An adjacent coat closet or built-in storage is key.

FORMAL DINING ROOM
