Are Dining Rooms Necessary?

DiningRoom 103 DINING ROOM-A 013
Do you really use your dining room
? Or, is it the saved for a few holidays or other special occasions?

We live in a less formal world. Fancy dinner parties are a thing of the past for the most part. Some home owners are rejecting the notion of a dining room and converting this often neglected room into more usable space:

  • Extra den
  • Art room
  • Music room
  • Home office
  • Library

Some homeowners like to have dining room space since they already own the furniture. But, they prefer this room to have a smaller foot print to maximize living space for other needs.

See what some luxury homeowners are doing with their home space without dining rooms here in a Wall Street Journal article. You’ll see tables that can be pulled out for those formal times when needed.
