For many of us, our dining room is often combined in an open-plan setting with a kitchen or living area, which can make it difficult to define the space with it’s own unique style or design. Those people who are lucky enough to have a separate dining room are often faced with the opposite and can overlook the space because it is used fairly infrequently.
Strong use of colour is not for the faint hearted, but a great way to create a dramatic dining experience. Be daring with colour on both the walls and floors, or for a more subtle approach, try a bright rug under the table to help define the dining zone, or create focal points with graphic paintings and prints. For an atmospheric dining experience, a range of tones in the same colour will unite the entire space, while a dark painted ceiling will give the room a cosy feel. If you have a dado rail, consider wallpaper above it and a deep colour below for a cocooning effect.
