If you love to entertain during the holidays, and you want to freshen up your dining room, then it’s time to pick up some paint chips and think about how you can improve the feel and appearance of the space. While painting your dining room is a larger commitment than simply buying new decorations, when you paint your space, you will have complete control over the way the space looks and feels. This is a great way to change the appearance of your room and make a huge impact on your family members and guests.
Moody colors look great through the holidays and are bold enough to stand up to bright decorations without getting overwhelmed. That’s a great reason alone to reach for a deep chocolate brown, dark green, or shadowy gray, but there’s another reason, too. When you paint your dining room dark and moody colors, then you will create incredible ambiance with your lighting. There’s nothing like candles lit on the table and a tree lighting up the corner of your dark room to make everyone feel cozy and connected.
On the complete opposite side of the paint chips are going to be your brighter colors. If you want a crisp, clean feel in your space, and you are worried about your dining room feeling too small and cramped by painting it a moody color, then you need to consider a bright neutral for your room. Colors like cream, light tan, or beige are great options if you want a brighter space that won’t feel so close. An additional benefit of choosing a lighter color is that when the holidays are over, you will be able to easily decorate without worrying that the color on your walls will clash.
It’s important that you remember that there’s no reason why your walls should all be left just one color. With so many amazing stencils to choose from, if you are in a hurry and want to update your walls without completely repainting them, then a stencil and some metallic paint may be just what you need. As long as the stencil that you choose isn’t too busy, you will find that the metallic paint you add to your walls will provide some visual interest to your space without becoming overwhelming. You’re sure to love how this paint will catch the light from your tree and reflect it, creating a magical space.
There’s no reason that you shouldn’t update your dining room for the holidays, and if you have noticed that your walls are looking a little drab, then it’s time to reach for a paintbrush and a new color paint. This is a great way to freshen your style and brighten up your space, no matter whether you reach for a deep and moody color, something more bright and neutral, or want to try your hand at using a stencil and metallic paint. Choosing the right color can take time, so bring home some paint chips, and see how they look in your space.
