The location of a dining room depends on factors like the proximity to the living room, the kitchen, wash basin, etc. The east, south or west parts of the house are ideal locations. Preferably, the dining room should be near the kitchen to facilitate the easy carrying of the food. It should also be near the living room. In the United States, you have the dining room adjacent to the living room used only for dining with guests or on special occasions. For informal meals, a dinette is the space adjacent to the kitchen where meals are served. Today, most modest size flats don’t have enough room for an independent or solo dining room. What is done is they integrate the living area and dining area into one. They may have a space adjacent to the kitchen where small tables and chairs are placed. The space is called a breakfast nook. Or you can have a breakfast bar instead, often higher than the regular kitchen counter with bar stools.
It got to the stage where the great dining hall would have been used only for celebrations and special occasions. Dining room furniture would have had to be scaled down to use in the smaller parlour room. The room for dining had been born, and it has continued to evolve and change over the centuries. The changes to dining room furniture have been gradual, but in many respects, there are still the same elements in any room used for dining. We have the table of course and the chairs.
