Small Dining Room Paint Colors
Dark Marine Blue
This dark marine blue gives this small dining room a romantic yet contemporary feel. Cool and darker colors often make rooms feel bigger, and some golden accents contrast perfectly with the overall darker hues of the walls and the wooden table.
For smaller dining rooms, a washed-out, light salmon can also bring extra brightness to the space. There is a kind of magical quality that gives this corner a serene atmosphere that is perfect for enjoying your meals with the sunlight coming in.
By making use of deep blue curtains, dark gray rug, and golden accents, this small dining room looks riveting with the walls painted in a cool gray. Elegant and sophisticated, this shade gives it a modern look and feel.
Accent Wall Paint Colors
Accent walls are alive and well in the interior design world, as they give any room a textured style that stands the test of time. This modern dining room shows off a dusty beige accent wall that looks both refined and unpretentious.
Golden accents sit comfortably in this dining room painted with a gorgeous, murky gray on its beautiful accent wall. A sophisticated hue also brings out the varnished finish of the wooden floors.
Light Silvery Blue
A clever approach to an otherwise plain dining room can be adding an upright wooden panel that simultaneously contrasts and glues the whole room together. Add it to this light silvery blue wall, and everything seems to make sense now.
Neutral Dining Room Paint Colors
Timeless and uncomplicated, this dining room knows how to make the best out of the sunlight coming in. The silky white color paired up with a neutral tone of wood keeps it light and dreamy.
Walking On Eggshells
This elegant and modern dining room would not be complete without the smoothness of those eggshell walls. The color is barely there, almost translucent, giving the room a contemporary feel like no other.
This almond cream tone brings a warm depth and complexity to this neutral dining room. The painting on the velvety wall completes the scenery in a highly serene way.
Dining Room Chair Rail Paint Colors
A classic ornament in many dining rooms, a chair rail — in many cases, placed together with wainscot — gives the room a sense of depth. With fresh aqua walls, this dining room looks bright and wholesome. This color has a rich blue base with soft green undertones, carrying a therapeutic feel within.
Leave it to orange shades to give a dining room a spectacular mood. This mandarin hue is one of those colors that is both bold and calming, leaving space for the chair rail, wainscot, and trims to stand out.
This dining room resorts to hazelnut walls and an aqua ceiling that results in an almost Fall-like combination. The crisp chair rail and ceiling trims do a great job keeping the two contrasting colors alive.
Paint Colors for Dark Furniture in your Dining Room
The Sands of Time
Dark furniture often means premium quality wood embedded in timeless pieces of furniture. Though it can seem harder to create a sophisticated dining room with such traits, this image shows us how perfectly darker wooden pieces pair with more sandy and neutral tones on the walls, ceiling, and rug.
The rich brown tones of the wooden furniture match with the pale yellow of this dining room wall, giving the room a warm, charming background color that makes us feel welcome and cozy.

Dark furniture can also mean dark walls. This gorgeous, elegant dining room falls back on charcoal black to cover its walls without it being overpowering in color.
