While looking for dining area decorating ideas, remember that you don't want to overwhelm this refined space with too much clutter. However, simple does not mean plain, and this is a room where you can take some stylistic liberties. When decorating dining rooms, think about color schemes (after choosing your table, of course!). Using color really can make or break dining area designs, and the cohesion of your 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 want to adhere 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 able to livening up a dining area.
Settle on a form that will work in most rooms. Round tables look good in compact rooms and living areas that contain square dining zones. They also offer flexible seating. If you buy a six-seater, eight can usually be accommodated at a pinch - the larger the diameter, the more folks can be seated. Alternatively, rectangular tables have limited seating spots because of the position of the table legs and because only one person can be seated at each end.
