Use of a dining room
A dining room is used as a separate space for people to eat their dinner. Often the food is prepared in another area, the kitchen. One reason to choose this setup is that while cooking, you are not bothered by your guest passing by the kitchen. Another reason is to create a calming space to have a perfect family dinner.

Difference between a formal and a functional dining room
Formal dining rooms are often completely separate rooms. These areas are used for elegant dinners, with proper etiquette and a more conservative look and feel. Casual, or functional dining rooms often share space with the kitchen or the living room. This area is not always used for eating situations, it is more utilitarian with a dual purpose. For example, family table games or homework area.

Creating a dining room yourself
