My dining room is my favorite room! So many happy occasions. We eat around the table, once a week, as a family, these days, but always have wonderful celebrations for birthdays and holidays, too!. We even set up our Christmas tree, in the dining room. Breathtaking. I have white trim and the chair rail divides upper antique white walls, with lower salsa, reddish orange walls. A native american rug. Wooden furniture of various hues. A dark, antique sideboard, and an antique trunk. A medium shade china cabinet and sewing machine/table, as well as a dining room table. Chairs are light blond and I have a corner cabinet antique green, over cherry. Beautiful curtains, with peachy flowers and soft green leaves, mirrors, artwork.Big windows. This room is truly the heart and life of this home.
Have an open plan kitchen/dinning with a huge rustic table for 8 and hutch at the end of the wall. We have lots of dinners with friends and family. My husband is the best cook and so both are well used!
No dining room. Table with 4 chairs in the kitchen area. We eat mostly in the living room. The table and chairs are used for special occasions and holidays. There is a china cabinet that matches the tables and chairs but it is placed in the living room due limited space in the kitchen area.
My dining room is an L off the living room. The table is whitewashed with a glass top and seats six. Chairs are also white with the seats covered in a green tropical print. On the wall is a small quilt depicting Birds Of Paradise which I made (I call it my ten year project!).

Don't have a dining room, but we do have a large kitchen with enough room for our heavy oak table and chairs. It is mostly used for breakfast and as a work area. :) It sits right in front of a large double window looking out on our back yard and bird feeders, garden, etc.

I kind of answered this yesterday - mine is just an 'area' in the big room that is my dining room, kitchen and living room. It is next to the kitchen area. When we eat at the table we eat there but truthfully we most often eat in front of our computers or TV. Not good I know but truthful!
My front area is L-shaped, and the dining room is the bottom of it. It's just a small square area with a ceiling fan and cut-outs in the wall into the kitchen. I pretty much only use it when I'm having company. Most of the time I eat in my easy chair.

We never eat in the dining room. I've lived here since 1994 and we've only eaten there maybe 5 times. I don't even have a table in there anymore, I sold it in 2005. We eat in the kitchen, right by the sliding glass doors.
As for the dining room, in one corner I have a 3 tier shelf with books and photo albums and a couple of plants. In the other corner I have a display cabinet I got from a gift shop where I used to work. I painted it white, then added porcelain drawer pulls with roses painted on them. I display my collections there; teapots and teacups, vintage Florida seashell dolls, sea glass and kaleidoscopes. There is also a ficus tree in front of the window.

Hmmm, my dining room is small and rather crowded looking to me. No, we don't eat in there anymore because we have to turn the table around each time and pull the sides out. Too much to do for us now. We have the table, a nice area rug under it, just 4 chairs, also have my exercise bike there, half in dining room and half in living room. I have a tiered glass tea cart in front of the dining room window with plants on it and a china cabinet in the corner. Table and chairs are an old set, in dark wood. Mirror on one wall, huge painting on another wall. Not a fancy room at all but at one time it was a busy, usable room.
