While searching for dining area decorating ideas, understand that you don't want to overwhelm this refined space with too much clutter. However, simple will not mean plain, which is a room 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 area designs, and the cohesion of a matching furniture set allows for colorful decor choices. Try light blue or gray walls for a stylish look, or go timeless with a black and white theme. If you wish to stick to white paint, throw in some 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 matter shape, size or material, ensure you measure table-to-wall clearance. To get this done, gauge the space around the area. Make an effort to leave 42-48" between your table and the walls so diners can sit down and get right up easily from their chairs. When there is furniture in the dining space, get started your 42-48 measurement from the edge of the furniture instead of the wall.
