You’ve probably seen those gorgeous dining rooms on blogs and in magazines. You don’t have to be a designer to get that put-together and comfortable look. One thing all gorgeous dining rooms have in common is beautiful colors.

After you choose the right color palette for your dining room, add pops of color in a classy way to turn the room into a space that looks like it was done by a designer.

Stylized Paint Job

Don’t settle for just a plain paint job. Do something different by painting one wall a contrasting color, adding a different color for the trim, painting a subtle pattern or using a creative technique to add color and texture. This is one of the easiest ways to add some color in your dining room.

You can also use paint to separate a dining area from your kitchen. If you plan to remodel your kitchen to make a breakfast nook or dining space, contact us. We specialize in kitchen remodeling and you can see a Pat Dolan Plumbing review to see what our customers think.

Dishes turned Decor

Use some collectable dishes to bring color and style into your dining room. Use plate hangers to arrange things on the walls in an attractive way, install a few floating shelves to arrange a collection of dishes or use a hutch to display a collection while adding interest to the room. If you don’t have a collection of dishes, consider using dishes from different sets that have the same style and colors to create an eclectic, designer look.

Lay Down a Rug

Adding a rug is another simple way to bring some color in. This approach can also make the room look warmer and luxurious and help you add some texture and softness to the space. Look for one with colors and a pattern that go with the style you are trying to achieve so that it blends in perfectly.

Make an Everyday Centerpiece

A centerpiece will add color, texture and depth and can help you dress up the room for holidays and seasons all year. Use real or artificial plants, vases, candles, a tray or table runner and other knickknacks to make a centerpiece that brings color and personality to your dining room.

Hang Stylish Curtains

If you have windows in your dining room, add stylish treatments that warm up the room and add to the color scheme. Short curtains or a valance will look sharp, simple and classy, while long drapes look more luxurious and warm. Consider the size and height of your windows and find a way to use a treatment to accentuate them.

Bringing more color into your dining room is a simple way to make it more comfortable, personalized and stylish. When you use a few techniques to add color, they will work together and the overall effect will be a dining room worthy of a professional designer.
