Dining Room Wall Décor

by Iqra Tariq June 05, 2021 3 min read

Our dining room walls are the only place in our house where we can do something completely unexpected. Patterned wallpaper and dark wall colors can be used in even the smallest dining rooms. While your dining room is shared with family and friends, it is usually empty. The good news is that since your dining room isn't used all of the time, you can be more experimental with color and design. Look at these important points to decorate the walls of your dining room.

Use Wood

Warming up an open dining area or adding character to a bland room can be difficult. Reclaimed wood accents are trendy right now, and they can add color and texture to an open dining area. A wood accent wall adds a much-needed architectural feature to a bland dining room. Accent wood gives your dining room a whole new look because of its natural appearance.

Wallpapers add glam

If you want to keep your dining room looking neutral, the key is to use texture and pattern through wallpaper or wall art to keep it interesting. Contemporary metallic print wallpaper and graphic designs add light to the room and draw attention to your lighting fixtures. If you keep your color palette simple, even the most neutral or minimalist room will benefit from a glimmer of metallic accents.

Add Colors to Highlight

Built-ins in the dining room allow you to add pretty accent colors without painting the walls. There aren't any built-in cabinets? It's no problem! Color can be added to china cabinets, hutches, and even bookcases. To highlight the cabinetry, select an accent color that contrasts with it. Table linens and artwork in your accent color help to create a professionally designed look.

Add Curtains and Drapes

It is not always possible to paint the walls of your dining room. If you're a renter or just don't have the time to paint, draperies will provide the color you need. Draperies with prints or patterns will add a lot of color to your dining room, giving you a lot of accent colors to work within your decorating scheme. The best piece of advice for using draperies to decorate a wall is to use them liberally.

Add Patterns and Shapes

When it comes to decorating your dining room, don't be afraid to combine patterns and colors. You have more imaginative options for your home's least-used space, so don't be afraid to use them. A monochromatic color palette will help you mix patterns (such as stripes and florals) without going overboard. Decorating with different shades of the same color creates a subtle color palette that is easy to work with.

Add Wall Art

A picture mural on the wall will make your dining room appear to be endless. A calming beach scene wall art provides a soothing backdrop for dinner. Use your wall mural as an accent wall, bringing in colors from your décor.


Enhance Ceiling

We all know there are four walls in our dining rooms, but did you know there is a fifth wall to decorate? The ceiling in your dining room is an integral part of your overall design scheme. A chandelier is always the center of attention in a dining room, drawing all eyes to the ceiling. Through using accent paint, recycled wood, or even wallpaper, you can make use of the extra wall.


Hence implementation of these simple yet thoughtful techniques could help you bring your dining room altogether. It is common to decorate the living room but go beyond the expectations, decorate your dining room to its fullest, and bring life in it.

Decoration of a home is not a common thing among ordinary households so the decoration of it should be done according to the place and space of the home. Happy Dining!
