Statement Spaces: Formal Dining Rooms Fit for a King

By Ashley Wells  |   May 10, 2018

There’s something to be said for elegant formal dining rooms that can shift our focus to the details of a meal and inspire thoughtful conversations among family and friends. While the open kitchen and great room floor plan have dominated the real estate scene in recent years, formal dining rooms have served as a sanctuary for the senses for centuries.

Historically, the formal dining room was reserved for nobility. As the ages progressed, the promise of purposeful togetherness over elaborate meals persisted. Today, the formal dining room can be a place void of kitchen clutter, Netflix noise, and the obsessive distraction of our smart phones. It’s what we all need from time-to-time; an escape from modern maladies replaced by a reverence for family, friends, and food.

Despite the casual vibe associated with a Gulf Coast lifestyle, some of the area’s most sought after homes are owning the market on formal dining rooms. Nothing showcases that better than the below collection of stunning spaces representing the finest in Southwest Florida real estate.
