  • Our lifestyles have changed in many ways. We're entertaining less, working from home more, and spending more time with family.

    However, we haven't adjusted our surroundings accordingly, especially when it comes to the dining room.

    It's often the least-used room in the house; still, learning a few ways to make your dining room less fussy could transform it into a vital gathering space.

Keep it a dining room


  • There’s a growing movement to do away with the dining room altogether, letting it go the way of the parlor. The trend is to convert it to a gym, a library, a play space, and more.
  • But don’t give up on the dining room just yet. Rethink its purpose and give it a more inviting makeover. This room should give people a feeling of a warm welcome, not a vague sense of terror that they’re about to spill something.

Encourage family use


  • It’s not a “good” room, and it shouldn’t just be “for company.” It’s a room in your house, and it doesn’t make sense for it to be vacant between dinner parties.
  • That can be a long time, and square footage is at a premium. Set the dining room table for family dinners more often, even without a special occasion. Use it for board games and puzzles. Spread out a little when helping the kids with homework. Use it, don’t lose it.

Mix it up


  • Buying furniture for traditional dining rooms always meant buying a set: matched furniture, matched china, and matched silverware with every last oyster fork laid out.
  • Don’t be afraid to use unmatched furniture, as long it’s coordinated with a unifying theme, such as color. Remove a couple of unnecessary chairs if they make it difficult to even get to the table, or add the table leaves back if you have the room.

    Don’t avoid an entire room in your house because it’s too formal. This isn’t the White House, and you’re not receiving heads of state.

  • Rethink its purpose and adjust your décor with a few of these ways to make your dining room less fussy. It’s not that often that you can discover a new land right in your own home.
