- Opt for a media room if you like to entertain. Family rooms are great for daily TV time, but if you have friends and family over often to watch sports or movies, a media room is a great conversion of your dining room. Theater style seating ensures that everyone’s comfortable, and a couple of pillows on the floor work well when you have a full house. Install built-in cabinets to house your media equipment and for storing games and DVDs.
- A craft room is a do-it-yourselfers dream. Arts and crafts supplies take up a large amount of space, so turning your dining room into a crafting area is a wise use of the space. A handy shelving and drawer unit keeps everything organized, while a large table surface is great for projects.
- Working from home requires a dedicated office space. Telecommuting is becoming more popular, and many homeowners are converting their dining room into a handy home office. Storage is a necessity, so include plenty of drawers and shelves in your plans. You’ll also need a work station and comfortable office chair.
