Revolutionizing Tradition: The Evolution from Dining Out to "Escape"

by Rong Zhang 12 Apr 2024

  Even with 6,500 square feet of spacious space, a room with limited year-round usage becomes unnecessary. For a design firm, it's a priority to understand how clients use their homes before focusing on aesthetics. For one particular family, it became clear that a formal dining room was more of a bonus room than a necessity.

In the 4 Boys and a Dream Home program, the main floor was carefully designed to meet their needs. The main floor features a spacious home office, a living room, a dining room, two powder rooms, a kitchen, and a room we affectionately refer to as the "escape room." Considering the family has four energetic young boys, they wanted a designated space where the adults could relax without being too far away from the action and avoid the noise and chaos that often accompanies children.

Their vision for The Escape was to create a cozy and alluring atmosphere, complete with a desk, a TV, and a bar. We incorporated their requirements into the design, ensuring that the room could easily be transformed back into a full dining room if needed.

One of the standout features in The Escape is the custom bar. The dark cabinets, specially crafted to their specifications, provide a striking contrast to the room’s overall neutral palette. For the waterfall counter and backsplash, we chose a stunning natural marble with a rich green vein. Taking inspiration from the marble, we carefully selected a couch and drapery that harmonized with its color.

To add an artistic touch, the upper cabinets were skillfully made by a local metal artisan in brass mesh, while the center cabinet discreetly houses a wine fridge.

So, would you be willing to trade your dining room for this exceptional bonus living space?
