This is a room in my home that I rarely use, and it's not that formal. At least it stays clean and presentable. I'm seeing more and more the trend towards a more formal kitchen with eat-in area.
Now this is formal. How often is a room like this really used?
Is this a waste of space?
I might prefer something like this myself.
But I think in my next house I'll just make my kitchen and dining room one large more formal area and use my 'good' silver and my fine china more often!
Do you use your formal dining room often? Do you think they're going out of style?
