Define Your Dining Room with These Popular Colours

Do you want a formal dining space but your home’s design doesn’t include a separate room for it?

Before you start building any walls, consider a more creative and much less expensive way to define a beautiful dining area that feels like a separate space: the strategic placement of paint color.

First, determine which wall is the focal point in the dining room.  Dress this wall up with a strong splash of color that is unique to the space. This will give the dining area a distinctive look, visually separating it from adjacent rooms.

What are some of the most popular colours for dining rooms today? Well, red continues to reign as the most popular choice. It has a strong personality, yet is both elegant and inviting.  The three Benjamin Moore reds that I like include salsa dancing AF-280, raspberry truffle 2080-10, and habanero pepper 1306 (shown in the image below).

Although reds tend to be more popular, I also like to use sophisticated, complex greys to give a more contemporary touch to a modern dining room.  Greys might seem like an unexpected choice for a dining room, but they make a strong statement when dressed with glittering silvers, golds, and crystals.
I recommend Benjamin Moore’s knoxville grey HC-160, smoked oyster 2109-40, or northern cliffs 1536 (as shown in the image below).

Use decorative accessories, window treatments, and large works of art to finish the look of your perfect new dining room. And don’t forget the chandelier—a dining room these days just doesn’t look complete without one!

Which would you prefer to use an Inviting Red or Sophisticated Gray?
