Dining rooms decline and orangeries on the rise

The nation has decided! Garden offices and orangeries are in, dining rooms, greenhouses and conservatories are out.

New analysis from Rightmove reveals the home features that have shifted in popularity over the last 10 years with pandemic-induced working from home leading to 11 times more mentions of garden offices in homes for sale now compared to a decade ago.

The findings also suggest a gradual trend towards more eco-friendly features, such as underfloor heating and electric car charging points. Homeowners could be ditching separate dining rooms for more modern open plan options, with dining rooms being mentioned in property adverts down by 28%, while mentions of open-plan rooms are up 74%. The decline of the dining room may also be down to more people converting this room into a home office.
