Dining Room Wall Decor Pro Tips:

Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.

For instance, if your blank wall is 9 feet tall and 5 feet wide, multiply 9 by 0.6 to get the low end of the ideal height range. Then multiply 9 by 0.75 to get the high end of the ideal height range. Do the same for your wall's 5 feet width. The ideal height of the canvas would be 5.4 feet - 6.75 feet and the ideal width would be 3 feet - 3.75 feet.

Modern Dining Room Wall Décor

The easiest way to update your dining space is to hang a piece of modern art! Contemporary dining room wall art packs a punch with practically no effort. Hanging a trendy print is quick, affordable, and totally transformative. If you want to keep the rest of your décor as is, look for a piece that highlights your existing color palette. Looking to make a visible change to your space? Pick a pop of color that demands to be the center of attention.

Coral Reef Multi Panel Canvas Wall Art

Speaking of wall hangings, why not create a whole wall of artwork? Gallery walls have been popular for hundreds of years, and for good reason. Originally popularized in French décor, this timeless trend is perfect to add some pizazz to your formal dining space. Simply mix and match your favorite prints, and arrange them on an empty wall. Voila! Your dining room has never looked better.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Working with a smaller space? No problem! Mirrors can help maximize your space. A large mirror can give the illusion that your dining room is twice the size. Plus, you can choose a mirror that emphasizes your personal décor. Choose an ornate, gilded mirror for a more traditional look, or a simple black frame for something more contemporary.

Wow Guests with Wallpaper

Wallpaper is another trend that’s seeing a significant resurgence in 2021. Break up the monotony of blank, white walls with a contemporary pattern. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bright colors and dynamic designs. Peel-and-stick wallpaper is also an excellent choice for rentals, because it makes a bold visual impact but can easily be removed!

Dining Room Wall Decor: Pro Tips

Los Angeles designer Yoko Chow shares her tips for choosing the perfect piece of wall art for your dining room.

“Finding a piece for a dining room may be [a challenge] due to the popularity of open floor plans. Many dining rooms often share the same walls with the kitchen and living room. However, if you have a large blank wall next to your dining table, it may be a good idea to install wall art!”

She expands on her favorite dining room décor trends.

“If Urban Modern style is what you’re after, I would consider this piece, 'Translucent Blue Watercolor.' Blue and green pastel colors create a soft atmosphere while a hint of gold transforms a space into elegance and luxury.”

A Summary of Dining Room Wall Decor
