    Do you need them?
    It seems like the formal living room is fading away fast.
    But most homes have a dining room.

    What is your preference?
    Both dining room and living room?
    One or the other?
    Neither?

    Personally, I like to entertain a little, and a formal dining room is very pleasant either for dinners or to offer a buffet.
    I want a butler's pantry, too.

    I like both. I want French doors on the living room so I can use it for my home office.

    I also like both, but the french doors are amazing.

    French doors are great. I like openness, but sometimes I like to be able to have some privacy.
    I like barn doors, too.

    We have my great grandparents' dining room set.
    It deserves a room of its own.

    We have a 140 year old set. It is beautiful.
    I want to put it into a nice dining room with a sunny bay window.

    I love the image of a bright sunny dining room.
