The Gift of Holiday Hosting: Bentley Built’s Guide

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and at Bentley Built, we believe that the heart of holiday joy lies in the comfort and warmth of your home! As custom home builders, we understand the importance of creating spaces that not only reflect your unique style but also cater to the joyous gatherings that the holiday season brings. In this blog, we’ll explore how Bentley Built can help you design the perfect home for holiday hosting, with a focus on the three essential areas: the kitchen, the living room/dining room, and the guest suite.

Custom Kitchen – The Heart of the Holidays

The kitchen is undeniably the heartbeat of holiday festivities, where the smell of delicious treats and festive meals fills the air. So many holiday memories are created around shared meals! Bentley Built is here to make sure your kitchen is as functional as it is stylish. Here are some features we recommend:

Double Oven

Say goodbye to the stress of coordinating cooking times. Our custom-designed kitchens often feature a double oven, allowing you to bake cookies, roast a turkey, and warm side dishes simultaneously.

Kitchen Island

An expansive kitchen island provides additional counter space for prepping, and serving, and creates a central hub for socializing. It’s the perfect place for guests to gather while you prepare your feast. Plus, everyone loves a buffet-style holiday meal!

Bar Area

Elevate your hosting game with a built-in bar area equipped with a mini-fridge and wine racks. Your guests will appreciate easy access to refreshments, creating a seamless flow for holiday entertaining.

Living Room/Dining Room Area – A Warm Welcome

The living room and dining room are where the magic of the holidays truly unfolds. Bentley Built focuses on creating spaces that seamlessly blend style with functionality to enhance your hosting experience.

Open Concept

An open-concept layout ensures that guests can mingle effortlessly between the living and dining areas. This creates an inviting atmosphere and allows you to be part of the celebration while putting the finishing touches on your holiday meals.

Ample Seating

Comfortable seating is a must for holiday gatherings. It’s crucial to design your living spaces with plenty of seating options, from plush sofas to chic accent chairs, ensuring that everyone has a cozy spot to relax and enjoy the festivities.


From thoughtfully integrated tech to cozy fireplaces, our designs consider the entertainment needs of you and your guests. Whether it’s watching holiday movies or enjoying festive tunes, your living room will be the perfect setting for making cherished memories.

Guest Suite – Home Away from Home

Welcoming friends and family into your home for the holidays is a special experience, and Bentley Built understands the importance of providing a comfortable retreat for your guests:


A well-designed guest suite offers a secluded space for your visitors to unwind and relax. Having a dedicated space for your guests, especially for stays that are longer than one night, ensures you still have space to enjoy the holidays on your terms.

Dedicated Bath

Ensure your guests feel pampered with a dedicated bathroom in the guest suite. This thoughtful touch adds an extra layer of convenience for your guests, and you! No more waiting in line to get ready in the morning.


Create a “home away from home” by incorporating cozy furnishings, and personalized touches. Your family and friends will appreciate the attention to detail that makes their holiday stay memorable.

At Bentley Built, our commitment goes beyond building houses – we craft homes that are tailored to your lifestyle and designed for enjoyable holiday hosting. Let your home be the backdrop for joy, laughter, and the creation of cherished memories. Happy holidays from Bentley Built!
