Play time: A big believer in using built-ins sparingly in order to keep spaces flexible, Architect Maggie Booz of Cambridge-based Smart Architecture counseled the couple to forgo them in the dining room.

Soon enough, the kids will outgrow their toys, she promised, and the proper amount of space needed for a smooth-flowing dining room will have been preserved.
