Dining Room Wallpaper – The Ultimate Guide

17 June 2021

How can you introduce a dining room wallpaper into your décor to elevate your room? The dining room offers a space for the family to gather and eat together, sharing news of their day and how it went. It can also be the venue for a romantic candlelit meal or a simple breakfast of cereal and toast before work.

With so many culinary possibilities to bear, it’s no wonder some people are stumped by the challenge of how to decorate that room. Fortunately, we can lend our expertise on this topic. With plenty of designer wallpaper options to choose from, it’s far easier than you’d believe to create a relaxing, romantic, and refined space everyone can enjoy.

 

Exploring the many possibilities with dining room wallpaper.


It might help to begin by thinking about the dining room space you’re decorating. If you can strip off the existing wallpaper and empty the room before you begin, so much the better. You may have an idea of the look you’re going for – anything from modern and quirky to traditional or more formal. However, it is always much easier to visualise alternative designs when standing in an empty room.

However, regardless of how you begin this decorative journey, you need to consider various elements:

  • Room dimensions
  • Room layout
  • Available space
  • The table and chairs you’re going to use

These are the most basic elements, yet each one lends itself to suggest certain types of luxury wallpaper. We can see this most clearly with a dining room table and chairs. A modern glass and metal set would work beautifully with modern wallpaper. Meanwhile, a traditional polished wooden dining table would suit a more refined and classical look.

A lot depends on whether you’re keeping your existing table and chairs. If not, you’ve automatically got more types of luxury wallpaper that would work in your space. Now is the time to be bold! If you feel it’s time to get rid of the traditional dining table and choose something strikingly modern, you could do the same with your dining room wallpaper too. Or, of course, the other way around.

Choose a luxury wallpaper to suit your space


Another talking point should be the level of detail you’ll see in the wallpaper. Do you want something abstract? These designer wallpaper options let the mind go free to imagine what’s there. They supply an incredible backdrop to any meal, regardless of colour scheme, company, or other details in the room.

Conversely, you could go up close to see far more detail in larger images that make something far bigger than it would be in life. Imagine flowers and branches reaching out across your dining room walls, for example. It would surely be difficult to resist examining the detail there, albeit on a much bigger scale than you’re familiar with. And the scale does make for an alternative appearance, no matter the colour, the shade, or the design.

Consider other elements of the room too. If the dining room has large windows and always receives plenty of light, you can be bolder with a darker design. If there is less light during the day, a lighter design would be better, even if there are darker elements entwined within it too. Think about when you use the room, whether it is just in the evening or throughout the day.

Create a dining room wallpaper feature wall


Another aspect we’ve yet to cover is whether your dining room has a feature wall. Is there a fireplace or a chimney breast? Does one wall naturally lend itself to a wall mural, for example? This makes an even bigger statement, especially if you go for a striking luxury wallpaper design. Bolder designs tend to suit these walls well. However, many dining room wallpaper designs look superb when covering all the walls of the room. Only you know how your room looks and how it might look with ether approach in play.

Speaking of bold, you should also think about whether you’d like your dining room wallpaper to be bold or subtle. There are many shades and colours to consider, of course – but colours don’t need to be bold to work in this scenario. You could easily choose a bold design that uses pastel shades, for example. You might spot a wall mural using giant flowers in pastel shades to give a striking look without making the room too dark.

Which dining room wallpaper is ‘you’ ?


One of our favourite approaches to dining room décor is to choose something quite light for the walls. This means we can choose the soft furnishings and trimmings to suit the occasion. Even if there are darker shades involved in the dining room wallpaper, they can be kept to a small percentage of the overall design. Even the most abstract designs are perfect for mixing light and medium shades, while lending support to any colour scheme you may choose.

Don’t be fooled, though – there are many ways to approach this most unique of spaces. You may find it easier to add your creative stamp on this room above all others. Think about whether to go large or small with the images in the design. Think about your favourite colours and shades. Consider whether abstract and subtle is more ‘you’ or whether this is the time to make a splash. This is the room to become bolder with, even if you wouldn’t take that approach in any other room of your home.
