More than any other room in the house , the dining room has fallen victim to lifestyle changes.
Few have space to spare, what was once reserved for formal dinners now doubles as a homework station, sewing table, project head quarters ect. For some families , just clearing the table is a project in itself.
My own "glorified" dining/ laundry space . . .
No matter where you gather to eat, make it a special place. Some of lives most important conversations take place at this most important space. When was the last time you had dinner with your family in your dining room?
