Beautiful Dining Room Wall Decor
Dining rooms come to life when family and friends gather around the table and discuss the day’s events as they share a great meal. Decorate this room with some beautiful dining room wall decor making it both usable and stunning. Here are some ideas of dining room wall decor. You don’t have to leave your wall bare until you find a painting or print that fills the entire space. Instead, hang multiple smaller pieces of artwork in a grouping to create a gallery wall. For a formal look, choose pieces of a similar size and medium and fit them with identical frames and mats. Then, hang them on the wall in an orderly grid. For a more eclectic feel, choose a mix of artwork in different sizes and shapes. To make the look cohesive, make sure the pieces share at least one common element, such as frame finish, subject matter or medium. To make the hanging process easier, lay out your arrangement on the floor before you hammer nails into the wall.
Another dining room wall decor is using plates. If you have more place settings of your best china than you’ll ever use for a single meal, consider hanging some of the plates on the wall. For a cottage look, you can also hang antique floral plates in a mix of patterns as long as they share a single color palette. If you prefer an earthier look, opt for vintage stoneware or handcrafted pottery plates. If you used bold color on the dining room walls, hang white ironstone plates for a dramatic look. Traditional plate arrangements include grids, diamonds and radiating sunburst patterns. For a more modern look, consider a free-form or overlapping arrangement.
