I love to spend time with my hubby too. He's my best friend. My DH & I have an art studio together. It's a spare bedroom that we turned into a beautiful like closet. We go in the room and grab what we need and bring it out to the living room. Our desks are set up in the living room. My most used tools are on my desk. That way I can spend time with my husband while he games.
I don't know if your husband games but I had a friend turn a room into a large gaming and craft room. Her husband has a state of the art game center in the room and she has taken up the rest of the room for her work. She has large sofas in the room, two huge desks for her work. Lots of gorgeous storage.
