Having an actual table and chairs in our actual dinning room has substantially increased the amount of quality time Hubby and I spend together. In the mornings while he is out walking the dog I put together a quick breakfast (by which I mean I microwave a couple burritos and slice up some fruit) and put the kettle on. When he gets back we get 40 minutes of bliss where we eat, sip tea, and talk. It really gets the day off on the right foot and lets us have some quality time before we are whisked away to the world of work.
If you need a dinning room table on a budget, this one is a great deal for the price. It's the Connor 5-Piece Gathering Group at American Home (sorry, but I think you have to be in New Mexico for them to deliver). It looks great in our house and is very sturdy, an extremely important point when you have a clumsy dog who will do anything for food.
