Many homes today are not outfitted with a designated space for formal dining—but if you love hosting dinners, then don't let this stop you. With the right pieces in place, your great room can turn formal in a flash. A table with leaves is a must—when you're not hosting, you'll need it to take up minimal space. Likewise, your other furniture should be able to flex when not in use. A sofa table can provide serving space, and consider a pair of accent chairs for seating.
Faced with a small eat-in kitchen or breakfast nook? No worries. A small-scale dining set with a glass top and armless chairs will squeeze into a tight space and won't feel out of place. A drop-leaf dining set is also a great option—just drop one of the leaves when you need the extra room and push the table against the wall.
