A few things to keep in mind as you are choosing dining room color palette:
Layout -Dining room configurations can vary perhaps more than any other room in the home. From breakfast nooks, to formal dining rooms, to open-concept living/dining areas – there are quite a few options when it comes to layout. When designing your space, you’ll want to consider how your dining room connects with the spaces around it. If adjoining other rooms, such as the kitchen or living room, be sure to develop a color scheme that complements those spaces. Color schemes in adjoining rooms don’t need to match, they just need to work well with one another.
Our go-to strategy for beginning to develop a color palette is to select one of the following:
1 light neutral + 1 mid to dark neutral + 1 accent color
Try to take inspiration from existing colors in your home when making your selections. This will give you a strong foundation to build off of, and will ensure that you end up with a pulled-together look.
Consider how this palette works with the colors in nearby rooms. If anything seems to be clashing or at odds, make adjustments. If your home has a very open-concept floor plan, you may want to keep your color scheme fairly neutral. If the dining room stands alone, then you have more of an opportunity to make a bold statement.
In addition to the layout of your space, you’ll also want to think about how the space is used. If it’s a casual, everyday dining area used for a variety of meals and activities, you may want to go with a color palette that’s more timeless and subdued. On the other hand, if your dining room is more “formal” and the space is used less frequently, it could be a good opportunity to have a little fun. The dining room is a great place to really show the style of your home. Think about the mood you’re trying to set, then revisit your your palette of 1 light neutral + 1 mid-dark neutral + 1 accent color.
