How to Use Wallpaper in the Dining Room

Dining rooms may seem like spaces designed for minimalist decor, but they actually present an opportunity to use wallpaper creatively. Bolder designs and patterns such as dramatic murals or non-repeating patterned papers work especially well in dining rooms as these areas often serve as family hubs with cards or board games likely being played after dinner; it is therefore crucial that any wallpaper ideas used here be durable enough to withstand spills and splatters from spills during dinner service or after.

Wallpaper can be an affordable way to add personality and charm to a room, without breaking the bank. There are many budget-conscious options out there such as an ombre dining room wallpaper, which combines color and texture without oversaturating a space.

To create a more cohesive look, consider selecting a wallpaper that complements or matches the paneling in your room. Tobi Schmidt chose Rebecca Atwood wallpaper in this room for its matching navy x-base table designed by her client and to give the space a feeling of oneness between wall and furniture design.

If you opt for more graphic patterns, limit the colors used in the print to keep it from feeling too busy. Stephen and David St. Russell implemented this principle in their own dining room by restricting their Cole & Son floral wallpaper to two shades only (Snow White and Sea Blue), as well as opting for white trim trim to keep things looking contemporary.

Make the ceiling part of the design for an extra visual impact. This technique works particularly well in dining rooms lacking architectural details, like this room by Studio DB where Little Greene’s leaf-patterned wallpaper provides the backdrop. A circular wood table, vintage fabric chairs and gold accents all complement its tropical theme to complete this space.

Select a wallpaper with a painted textured surface to accentuate both height and depth in a room. Peel-and-stick options provide for easier removal when the time comes for redecorating.

Once you have selected your dining room wallpaper, be sure to contact a professional paperhanger to ensure a smooth installation process. An experienced paperhanger can recommend the appropriate number of rolls based on your room’s square footage as well as window and door dimensions as well as existing trim and molding in your space. Likewise, viewing samples under different lighting conditions such as natural and artificial sunlight is beneficial in seeing how colors will change with light changes; also make sure you purchase high-quality wallpaper which will stand up against everyday life wear-and-tear!
