What is the logic behind a dining room immediately off the foyer?
I've seen this repeated in many floorplans, including my own. (We'll be using the "dining room" as a piano / homework room.)
What is the logic behind putting the dining room RIGHT off the foyer? Is the idea that guests won't come any further into your home? Or that the dining room makes an elegant focal point upon entry? I just can't wrap my head around why this is so popular.
