A combination family room and dining room is revamped in a traditional, casual style.
Before: Awkward Element
Homeowner Dalet Brady and her two boys spend a lot of time in their combination family and dining room. Dalet feels limited on how she can arrange the space because of the support beam in the middle of the room. Having a structural element such as a support beam in the middle of a room can limit the way you design the space. But, hiding the element isn’t always the answer — sometimes making it bigger works even better. Designer Angelo Surmelis and the 24 Hour Design
team transform a family room that is plagued by an ugly support beam sitting smack-dab in the middle of the space.
