Is a Formal Dining Room Still Important?I have been working with a custom home buyer and the buyer is expressing no need for a formal dining area. If I had a chance to do over my house I would not include a formal dining room and just make the breakfast area bigger and better. No longer are all new homes including formal dining rooms. Some don't even have large dining areas off the kitchens but have eating bars and outside dining instead. This is a sign of our changing lifestyles, We are an on the go society, do a lot of eating out and use take out food rather than preparing big meals at home.
