Dining Room

This is our dining room.  The former owner of the house turned one of the bedrooms into a formal dining area.  We only  use  it when there is a party at home which is very seldom.  We are planning to turn it into a bedroom again if we  can't find a  new home that would accommodate the four of us.  We have a big kitchen so we really don't need a dining room so let's wait and see what we  come up next.

I think that's a great idea Denise!

That is an attractive dining room but it would also make a great bedroom since you don't use it much. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

Not too many people entertain in dining rooms any more. Usually, things are much more casual.

i love your dining room, looks so beautiful, i agree with you about making it a bedroom if you seldom use it.

Nice dining room, sis! Perfect for parties indeed! But if parties happen very seldom, great idea it will be to turn it into a bedroom.

That a quaint formal dining area you have there sis! I hope you'll reconsider keeping it. :) It's really pretty and I love the way it's decorated. But then again, it's a waste to not enjoy it fully if you barely use it.

your dining room will look prettier if you remove the corner rack or replace it with a wood-designed one. Kuro-kuro ko lang po ito.

Your dining area looks very clean and comfy but it would be a great idea to convert it into a bedroom to maximize its use. :)

Lovely dining room sis! Hubby and I have been browsing through several interior design for our second floor that is currently under construction. :)

I wish we have a formal dining room like you do, but just like what you said, we also have a bigger kitchen and we have the dining table set up there.

Lovely dining room, looks very homey! we also usually do use the kitchen since we're just four. Dining room is use on special gatherings to accommodate quite a number of guests.

We also have a formal dining area that is rarely used. Sayang ang space. Have a fabulous week!

To me dining rooms are a waste unless you do a lot entertaining.

Para sa akin, tama na yung may isang kainan sa bahay.. Di bale nalang talaga kung sobra-sobra na ang space.. Tama yung iba, mostly naman dito sa States, pang entertaining lang mga formal dining room nila.. Pag walang mga special gatherings, nakatingga lang, sayang ang space.. A bedroom sounds a much better use of that space.. I would do the same if we end up in a house that doesn't have all the space we need..

Looking forward to your update on this one.. =)
