Before making any big changes, consider what the dining room will be used for. Will you be hosting regular formal dinner parties and gatherings? 

This will give you insight on how much seating you’ll need and how you’ll design the space for more intimate conversations or conversations within large groups. 

Once you have a general idea of what function the room will serve, you can start planning and selecting desired pieces and materials. 

4. Declutter. 

If you have large cabinets with a lot of stuff in it surrounding the dining area, it might be time to declutter to make way for a more open dining room. 

China cabinets used to be a norm in households but now people are opting to have these removed and go for more modern storage pieces.
