Does your home have a formal or a casual dining room? Are you unsure of whether yours fits into either category? Or do you have both?
Modern living trends mean that out of all of the rooms in the home, the formal dining room is the one that journalists report are becoming less coveted. The upsurge in open-plan living means dining spaces are being added into one, fluid area. Plus, busy lifestyles combined with the rise in bowl food has resulted in people eating more and more meals on the sofa.
So, in the formal vs informal dining room debate, you might think the traditional dining room would lose. But could it be that there’s a case for both?
