You might have noticed that with the passage of time, dining rooms have morphed more into dining spaces than separate rooms of their own. This has gradually happened over time because of the shrinking real estate, which has resulted in smaller homes.
Here’s how the story goes: as the real estate became smaller, the planning of our homes became more open and dispersed. Walls began to give way to open-floor plans and dining room became an intermediary space between the kitchen and living areas. This transition is started a few decades ago, recently the trend has finally caught up. So let’s look at these 5 dining area trends which you can follow.
