This dining room features a gorgeous white coffered ceiling with modern starburst light fixture. The design is anchored with a gorgeous solid walnut and maple table that seats 10-12 comfortably for dinner and converts to a regulation-sized ping-pong table for friendly after-meal competition. A bright blue rug adds an element of color and fun to brighten the room.
From the ping-pong table to the home bar to the theater-size movie screen, this entertainment space is ready for gatherings of any size. Facing modular sofas provide ample and comfy seating for movie viewing. A backsplash beneath the countertop of the nearby bar features patterned tile that connects the room's neutral palette with its blue accents. Fabric panels provide soundproofing throughout the space.
"We sold our big house with a bonus room 15 years ago so that we could afford to start over and do what we love for a living," says designer Christina Britt Lewis of The Redesign Company. "This is a choice we never regret, but we make big boys and they have big friends. When they needed more space, we redesigned our garage. We used what we already had—a ping pong table we bartered for, the twin beds our teenage boys had outgrown for seating—and saved by considering it a three-season space and not installing heat or air conditioning. We hung trail maps of mountains we have conquered and set lists from concerts we loved in cheap frames for 'art' that brings back fun family memories."
Mosaik Design and Fig Studio remodeled this basement to include entertainment features that the kids would love. Hightop tables with simple wood barstools provide the perfect place for an afternoon snack while enjoying a game of ping pong.
The upstairs space in this contemporary townhouse is transformed into a fun entertaining area. A high-top table and chairs sit next to a flatscreen TV for watching sports, while a comfortable gray sectional is the ideal spot to relax. Friends can get competitive over a game of ping pong, and a pair of domino stools adds a whimsical touch.
