Wallpaper Ideas for Your Dining Room

The next time you feel the urge to give your dining room a look, open a whole new door to creativity by incorporating wallpaper.  Given the extensive variety of patterns and textures that are available, you can go in many directions: plain, floral, stripes, even fabric. You can create a single looks that flows throughout the room or mix and match styles to create a look all your own.  The opportunities are endless!

In order to help you identify which wallpaper design would best suit your room and your style, here are a few ideas…

  • Mix plain and patterned wallpaper in your dining room. Covering three walls with a more one dimensional style of wallpaper and adding an extra pop of color, pattern, or texture by using a different style of wallpaper on the fourth wall is a great way to add visual interest to a room.  Just make sure that both styles of wallpaper complement each other and your dining room furniture. If you have an open concept floor plan, where your living room, dining room, and kitchen flow into one another, wallpaper is a perfect way to distinguish each area, while still allowing them to blend.
  • Use framed patterned wallpaper. Instead of applying wallpaper all over your dining room wall, why not focus on a smaller section?  By framing a piece of wallpaper you like, you can incorporate that design element into your room in a more moderate away and create art for your wall in the process.
  • Create a feature on your wall. Customize your wallpaper by converting a favorite piece of artwork or a beautiful design into a wallpaper format that you can then use to cover your entire wall.  It makes an impact and gives your guests something to talk about.
  • Use two bold plain colors. Incorporate a dual colored theme in your dining room and tie everything into it, from the walls to your furniture to your décor.  Pink and gray can create a dramatic dining experience, while red and brown set the tone for a romantic ambience.
  • Go floral. Blossoming flowers always go well in a dining room because they add cheer and good spirit to the atmosphere.
