Still not a believer? Here are six gorgeous gray dining room ideas that effortlessly prove our point.
1. Opt for a two-tone backdrop.
2. Embrace wall moldings.
As you peruse gray dining room ideas, you'll no doubt notice that nearly every design style can live in harmony with slate walls. Punctuated with a crystal chandelier, modern artwork, and classic furniture, this chic gray space belonging to Tamara of CITRINELIVING flawlessly showcases an artful mix of decor.
3. Amp up the drama.
Follow the lead of Jessica and Ryan of Stanton Schwartz Design and dial things up a notch with gray wallpaper. The combination of light and dark hues in this swirling cloud print make you feel as if you're soaring through a churning sky. Complete the look with gray wainscoting and decadent velvet chairs in royal blue.
4. Keep it simple.
5. Incorporate texture.
Looking for a bit of extra visual interest in your dining room? Gray walls don't have to be flat and matte. In fact, they can spotlight stylish texture with the right wallpaper choice. A sisal selection is a great way to achieve this look, as witnessed in this transitional dining space designed by the team at Heidi Lachapelle Interiors.
6. Craft a soothing space.
Gray is a hue that instantly promotes feelings of peace and tranquility (a vibe that should be captured in most any home if you ask us). Needless to say, if you love to host low-key gatherings in your dining room, a lighter shade is the perfect color solution. For example, in this space styled by Erin of Sunny Circle Studio, the silvery walls mesh beautifully with green houseplants, white wainscoting, wood furniture, and a dreamy area rug, resulting in a serene nook that you could spend hours in.
