Dining Rooms 101

Everyone needs a comfortable place to dine. Whether you live in a large house or a small studio apartment you have to have a place to sit down, relax and enjoy meals together with family and friends. After that, it's up to each of us to create the best space for ourselves and our families. But no one has to have a formal dining room that you use only once or twice a year. Dining rooms can be used for school projects, homework and serve many different purposes depending on need and time of day. They can be small or large. Some will be separate rooms where others may just be a nook off your kitchen or an area designated for dining attached to your living room. Whatever space you have, remember you are in charge of how you use it, don't let the layout of your house boss you around.

What about beach front dining?  Not all of us have this beautiful beach in our back yard but you can purchase this Coastal Living Cottage Furniture from Stanley at Belfort Furniture.

When putting your dining room together lose the "matchy- matchy" look and have some fun. If you really want a formal look, you can have it in so many different ways. Here is a dining room that caught our eye from Elle Decor to give you inspiration.

This farmhouse kitchen with a big dining table is full of charm.

What about a dining room with history? Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spent summers in this house, and the pine dining table belonged to her family, courtesy of  House Beautiful.

This is the perfect dining area for a small space. A nook that is beautifully put together, also from House Beautiful.
