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, which is an area where you can take some stylistic liberties. When decorating dining rooms, think about color schemes (after choosing your table, of course!). Using color can really make or break dining area designs, and the cohesion of the matching furniture set permits colorful decor choices. Try light blue or gray walls for a stylish look, or go timeless with a black and white theme. If you wish to stick 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.
Chairs shouldn't be rickety or wobble. In case the chair has a padded seat, the corners should be reinforced with screwed-in (not glued) corner blocks. Padded seats should be removable so that the cover can be changed. Fabric covered chairs may well not be appealing if you have small children who are messy eaters. Leather is a great option for quick cleanup, as is stain resistant microfiber upholstery. Slip covers on Parson's chairs are another easily cleaned option for the dining room.
