Looking for a way to foster a closer relationship with your family members? Even though we are spending more time in our home than ever, it doesn’t necessarily equate to spending time together. If you are frustrated that everyone seems to separate to their separate areas more often than not, here is a tip that can make a difference. Insist on having one meal a day all seated in the dining room.
There are some that say that your main focus when redecorating or renovating should be the kitchen because families congregate there or the living room where they’ll relax, but neither of these rooms provides the lengthy stays that a dining room can. The kitchen might attract those preparing the meal, but not everyone. The living room might attract everyone for a few hours, but they are focused on the television, not each other. The dining room is the place where everyone comes at the same time and has little to distract them from communicating with one another. Of course, that means banning the cell phones, though!
Another thing to consider if you are going to give this a try is that your dining room furniture must be conducive to being happily seated for longer than the few minutes it takes to consume the meal. In addition to choosing dining room chairs that are comfortable, take care to choose a table that is large enough to not just enjoy the meal, but also any activity you might do afterward, such as pull out a boardgame or play a card game.
