Dedicated rooms are often best, that is a luxury few of us can afford. The key is having multi-functional spaces: living rooms that turn into lounges, foyers that double as dance floors. A lot can be done once you become aware of how lighting, decoration and amenities affect the "vibe" of the space and how inside and outside can be brought together.
We love using Metro folding stainless steel tables. They are NSF certified, so you know they will keep your food safe. Stainless steel means they are easy to clean and durable. They are folding, so you can put them away when not in use. Here are some ideas you may find inspiring:

I wouldn't really want my home to look like a café.

There are coffee shop sound effect tracks you can download online in case you need the chatter and kschrrr of an espresso machine every so often.

At our house, a pegboard wall served my son from a very young age until he moved out and now is just as useful since I took over the space as a sewing/craft room. The pegboard comes in 4x8 sheets so they're the perfect size for standard height walls. They're easy to install and with a little trim molding and paint look wonderful. You can find a HUGE variety of pegboard hooks, jars, shelves, etc. in big box stores and garage sales. The best thing about pegboard walls? They are the most flexible use item in the room. My son had such a good time 'arranging' his matchbox cars and X-men (and later, school projects and sports memorabilia), and now I am storing spools of ribbon, thread, rolls of fabric, jars of beads and so much more.

Greenblott- that's a fantastic article idea! I appreciate the discussion among pros and clients here on Houzz. It is very enlightening to see the different approaches and learn about what matters to different people.

A very through primer! It's pretty rare that a client will be as prepared as this article suggests. It would make the initial interview go much smoother if the homeowner has their ducks in a row. So often during the interview I'll ask questions that they haven't considered to get to a scope of work. This is important stuff!
