Our clients have a large breakfast room, and a large island with so didn't see the need for a formal dining room.
They wanted a secondary lounge/work space adjacent to the living room we'd also designed. As we gutted the bathroom that's on the other side of the stairs, we realized there was a lot of hidden space under the stairway that would make for a great area for a desk.
This neatly tucked in workspace was the result.
That pesky support beam meant we had to divide the space and do a custom desk which we did with deep drawers for file storage. We also added an electrical outlet and recessed lighting.
Custom shelves also added extra surfaces for books and accessories.

And that's that. A dining room that was sure to get very little use, is now a functional and much used lounge for this family.
Would you transform your own dining room into another space? I did. My very own home office was once our dining room.
