When you’re in college, half of the things you will learn won’t be in a classroom — they’ll be at college parties. If you want to throw epic parties, you need to have at least six key items in your house that you can pull out at a moment’s notice.
Here’s a list of the six basic necessities every great college party house requires.
1. Plenty of room
If you’re going to have a party house, you need to make sure you have enough room to accommodate all your guests. So if you live in an apartment, don’t plan on throwing huge parties. Another good reason to have plenty of room is so people can stay over in case they cannot drive home on their own.
If you’re going to throw a party, you might as well have a bar in your pad too. Create a chic place where you can serve and store drinks. Include a fridge, sink, and maybe a couple of stools to create the perfect ambiance. A home bar is quite easy to set up yourself and helps to make your parties that much better.
3. Inflatable pool
During the sweltering summer months, it’s important to have a place where your guests can cool off. An inflatable baby pool, placed in the backyard, provides quick relief from the summer heat. Just fill it up with water and let the fun begin!
4. Tiki torches
Tiki torches are necessary if you are going to have any kind of backyard blowout. BBQs, pool parties, and other outdoor festivities can always use great lighting.
5. A DJ booth
No party is complete without great tunes to make people want to hit the dance floor. You’re going to need a proper DJ booth that holds equipment and provides enough room for your disc jockey to spin all the records. You can either purchase an affordable DJ booth online or even build one yourself with your buddies.
6. A great sound system
What point is there in having a DJ booth if nobody can hear the songs that are getting spun? Having a few high-quality speakers is important for throwing a great party. Position the speakers throughout the room where everyone is dancing for optimum noise. Also, if guests are outside, be sure to have a sound system hooked up there as well.
If you have these six essentials, you are guaranteed to have the ultimate party house and host the best blowouts at your college.
