Whether you love rustic, modern or mid-century, the dining room is one of your best opportunities for showcasing your sense of style in your home. But it’s such a furniture-centered space that often it’s easy for us to overlook the potential of other ways to distinguish it. Even something as simple as a coat of paint can take your dining room in an entirely new direction—giving a sense of color and sophistication that usually isn’t possible with furniture alone. And creating an impact doesn’t require a bold or overpowering color. In fact, one of the best colors for a dining room is gray.

Every shade of brown in this room just jumps off of the gray backdrop. If your dining room includes a lot of wood tones, then a darker gray is an excellent choice for taking what might look like an ordinary table or chair and turning it into the eye-catching center of attention.
Walls in lighter gray give the room a less serious and more cheerful look, and such rooms seem far more inviting on cold, dark winter nights. Those living in the tropics and blessed with ample sunlight all year long can use the darker shades of gray with far more freedom, as natural light and wonderful ventilation balance the setting perfectly.
