The Formal Dining Room Is Making a Comeback

The Formal Dining Room with a Chandelier is Making a Comeback.

In today’s world of electronic communication, quality time with family and friends is often taken for granted.  Actually sitting down to the dinner table and enjoying a meal together is largely a thing of the past.  However, the formal dining room is making a comeback in 2016.  This doesn’t mean that you have to have a dedicated room to create a dining space that is ready to receive guests for dinner.  Here are dining rooms of all styles to inspire you to shut off the cell phones, computers, pads and video games to share conversation with family and friends around the dinner table.

A formal dining space need not be a dedicated room.  An alcove off the main space of the home is sufficient for a dining table and chairs.  Use an area rug to define the space or locate the dining room right off the kitchen.

A dining room can be rich with character when you add elements from your travels or other interesting accents.  A pop of color on the walls, upholstery or with furniture gives the room a punch of character as well.
