Why is a room necessary when you use it five times a year? How many places does a small family need to eat. I completely re-configured my house…I dissembled the theater we had in the lower level that no one used…put half the theater furniture in the dining room with a new Fancy LG TV that is better quality than real life…hidden in a large armoire…put the dining room in the living room and completely got rid of the eat-in kitchen…here is the result…
Old Dining Room
New Dining Room
For a bookworm, turning the dining room into a library may prove to be a useful solution. And if you also have family members who treat your house like a hotel, install a Murphy bed within your built-ins. This also helps to alleviate the problem of finding somewhere to stuff that pesky air mattress each morning.

Double height interiors really don’t make you feel so small…on the contrary they give you a feeling of space.

It’s no secret that animal prints are huge in home decor right now. My favorite is Zebra print. A fun way to add whimsy to every type of decor. With its neutral colors, Zebra print is easier to incorporate than you may think. Go ahead, add a little stripe to your life!

Do you have the winter blues?
The holidays begin to wind down. Family and friends return home, the house gets really quiet and those winter blues start creeping in.
Here are some blues to make you feel better.

Often thought of as a place mostly for enjoying holiday dinners and birthday celebrations, the dining room is turning into a friendlier, more intimate space as home owners try to maximize existing square footage rather than add on.
One popular trend today is to take down a wall between the dining room and kitchen to make one big, casual cooking and eating space, which can also be used for watching a movie or using a computer.
A trend in custom homes today is a more casual living and eating spaces, an open great room with a corner for dining, or a smaller dining room.
More dining rooms also have become multipurpose with bookshelves, a bar, or paneling that opens to a desk for an at-home office.
Adapt to Familial Needs
1. Younger (under 30) and first-time home owners usually don’t care about a formal dining room. They see it as wasted space that they would rarely use and would repurpose it into a home office, den, or media room. As long as the home has an eat-in kitchen, they’re happy.
2. Families with children want a formal dining room adjacent to the kitchen for family gatherings and holiday meals.
3. Downsizing baby boomers are trying to make their lives less complicated. A breakfast nook or eat-in kitchen works fine for most.
