While searching for dining room decorating ideas, remember that you don't want to overwhelm this refined space with too much clutter. However, simple will not mean plain, which is an area where you can take some stylistic liberties. When decorating dining rooms, think about color schemes (after choosing your table, of course!). Usage of color really can make or break dining room designs, and the cohesion of any matching furniture set allows for colorful decor choices. Try light blue or gray walls for an elegant look, or go timeless with a black and white theme. If you wish to stick to white paint, throw in a few gold or copper accents, or splashes of bright colors to keep it interesting; geometric patterns, custom-painted ceilings and unique wallpapers are also effective at livening up a dining area.
No real matter what shape you decide on for a dining table, you should allow at least three feet between the table edge and an obstruction like a server or wall. This provides sufficient space for people to move around the table, and in and out using their seats. Alternatively, more than six feet remaining between one wall or obstruction and the table means that the set is too small.
