Consider how often you use the dining room. We love to entertain but we find that more and more we're doing it in a less formal way - buffet style sitting on various surfaces throughout the house. The dining room definitely is handy for Thanksgiving dinner, but a playroom would be great the other 364 days of the year.
So we're considering taking the plunge. We need some paint, new lighting, new floor coverings and some storage space for our dining table. Has anyone done this in their own home? Please share with us in the comments.
