Dining Room Ideas for your Cape Cod Custom Home

Posted by REEF Cape Cod's Home Builder on Fri, Mar 18, 2016

Formal dining rooms have become less popular over the last 10 years. With the casual lifestyle here on Cape Cod, many customers opt for a less formal dining area that can be used for both daily meal times or be dressed up with flowers and fun place settings for a more formal gathering.  When designing a custom home, every square foot is valuable, so creating an entire room that may only be used for a handful of formal dinners may not be cost effective.  Here are some fun ideas to consider when planning your own dining room space:  Custom Dining Rooms
