What To Do With the Dining Room
Space is a premium in most any home. As designers and homeowners are looking to make the most of each and every room, many are realizing the old necessity of a formal dining room is simply, well, no longer necessary.
Most newer homes are built with great rooms and expansive kitchens with plenty of space for the family to dine together. Older homes are finding their designated dining rooms being resurrected as libraries, play areas, homes offices, and craft rooms.
The shift in layout and daily life can be attributed to television, personal tech devices, and overlapping schedules and uber-busy lifestyles. To retain calm and unity in the home, be sure to keep the space productive, organized, and inviting – not a bare or overstuffed thoroughfare of hustle and bustle.
