Classic dining rooms - 10 of the best
Double function room
For those without a separate room, a small dining area can sit neatly behind a sofa as part of a larger living space. When the table is not in use, it can be used like a mantelpiece, or sidetable, and dressed with flowers and attractive accessories. Alternatively, put it to use as a desk, somewhere for the children to do their homework or indulge in some arts and crafts.
