Need Space? Ditch Your Dining Room!

More and more, we see families on the go. Dinners have evolved and formal dining is becoming a way of the past, or, it is reserved just for special occasions or holidays. With that in mind, we often see that dining rooms are left untouched a good majority of the year. Many people still have fully furnished dining rooms, for a few reasons. They may have been told they can’t sell their home without one, or they already have a dining set, or it just hadn’t occurred to them not to have one.

 

If you’re willing to think outside the box and you’re looking for ways to have more room without financing a home addition, take a second to think about what you really need and don’t need in your home. There’s a good chance you don’t really need a formal dining room.

 

A better solution might be to create a slightly larger, less formal dining space. A space that can be more flexible, taking the place of the formal dining room and the breakfast room. Often, this other dining space works great for meals, crafts, and everything in between. You can just add a nice tablecloth, some candles and once again, it is a temporary space for elegant dining.  If space allows, you can add a nook to your kitchen (if you haven’t already) and completely remove your formal dining furniture from your dining room. Now, you have a full room for play, design, or maybe an office - it’s up to you!
