When we have guests over for a party, we spend 99% of our time in the dining room (and we've never had a dinner party). It's the place we make drinks, nibble on snacks and talk — it's the most comfortable part of the house and it's right next to the kitchen!
That other 10% of the time, we're in the kitchen or outside. Dining rooms draw people in and make them want to stay and have a good time.
Dining rooms no longer have to be traditional and stuffy, people are realizing you can have a successful dining room without grandma's china cabinet. Formal or farmhouse — these dining rooms are delicious and inviting!
What do you think of dining rooms, what's yours like?
