These days, people are ever more practical when it comes to deciding what they want in their new homes or renovations. Entire rooms are disappearing and other rooms are becoming multi-functional. People are focusing on true value and real need.
Gone are the infrequently used formal living rooms and dining rooms. People spend more time in their family rooms and kitchens so these become the spaces that are increasing in size and becoming more functional. The dining room has become less formal and is used for everyday meals, thus eliminating the need for a breakfast room. Younger people are opting out of the formal china cabinet because they are living a more casual lifestyle.
