In a space that is explicitly created to be eaten as it is dining room, you might think you have to paint it with certain colors, because they can positively or negatively affect our general condition.
And, although in reality it is, there are not many restrictions or rules to follow when choosing the color of the dining room; it is enough to know one thing: that the general atmosphere of the dining room is pleasant and that we like it.
Space where we feel comfortable with selected colors and where we like to spend time, just like in all these painted dining rooms I have prepared in this article.
Each is painted a different color, each has its own essence and personality, but they all have one thing in common: the color is right. And not just the walls, but all those who complete the scene.
Well, let’s go:
Blue color to paint the dining room
There are many shades of blue, but this is a very suitable color for any room; and a dining room, of course.
It is a color based on a relaxing effect, and then other shades are added depending on its tone: more elegant, cheerful, more intoxicating, etc. But for starters, blue is the perfect color to color a dining room.

This other beautiful dining room is painted in dark blue almost black, and Sherwin Williams called it Cyberspace, and depending on how it gives it light, it looks one way or another. Fantastic bold and dramatic color to color the dining room.

You can also use grayish blue colors that are even cooler than standard blues and more elegant and calmer shades thanks to the gray color.

The dining room is painted in a softer gray-blue calm. This second color combines the calm of blue and the elegance of gray, but in pastel tones.
Let’s put the blues on the side so we can now see the color or range of warm colors to color the dining room:
Earthy tones for the dining room

Earthy or sandy tones are calm and warm colors. They generally create neutral, cozy and comfortable environments.
Wooden furniture, whether dark or light wood, combines perfectly with all tones of earth or sand, as we will see below. What’s more, perfect colors for painting small dining rooms.

As you can see, earth tones work very well in any dining room.
White for the dining room

It’s hard to miss white. It is a color that suits any space. Extremely versatile. You can get all kinds of environments with this color. It all depends on what other colors or textures we combine.
By painting the walls white, we can add doses of paint to other accessories, such as chairs, carpets, for example, creating the most original dining room. And if the living room is also painted white, we unite the room and create harmony.

Dining room black and white. If what you are looking for is an elegant environment, bet on a black and white pair and you will surely be right.
Let’s look at more neutral colors:

We are faced with a neutral color par excellence. It would be very difficult not to hit gray in the dining room, as it fits in wood, lacquered, glass or any other material.
In addition, thanks to a wide range of tones, we can achieve many different environments.
The dining room is painted a very soft gray. This color is my favorite, I like it so much that I have it even in my bedroom. It is elegant, very relaxing and combines very well with other elements; and if there is light, its most beautiful side comes out.
If you find this color bland, you may like the following:
Orange color for the dining room

You can think of orange as the conflicting color for the dining room, but nothing is further from the truth. In addition to being enthusiastic, fiery and glowing, it stimulates conversation.
It is a color that is often used to evoke joy and attract attention. Also, according to the psychology of color, orange makes us think about food, especially orange and mandarin fruit, which can create a feeling of appetite.
Well some world-famous restaurant chains often use this color in their interiors.

Another very active and high-energy color that should be used carefully. But well combined, used with common sense and in accordance with what is required and what exists, it is a very suitable color for any space.
Create bright and energetic spaces. It seems to me the perfect color for painting the kitchen dining room or outside.

Also in very pale tones, like vanilla, cream or ivory, it works very well. I would almost say, because it is much smoother and calmer.
Red color for the dining room
With a lot of strength and energy, red should be used with caution. But it is a beautiful color for painting any dining room.
It combines earth tones with wood just as well as gray and white.
They can paint dining rooms that are more classic style equally well and refined as environments more current and modern.
Photography? Seen on Pinterest
Here we see another dining room in which an accent wall has been created, instead of painting the whole space, so as not to saturate it so much with color.
Let’s look at other colors to paint the dining room very similarly, but more serenely. Can you imagine what that is? Right:
Pink color for the dining room

The cousin of red, pink creates a more cheerful and carefree environment when he wants, but he also knows how to behave in more elegant and sophisticated styles.
And in soft pink colors as we see above these lines, as well as in darker pink colors, as we see below:

This dining room is painted in a dark pink hue, very warm, almost earthy, like terracotta, and as you can see, combined with the light wood and white furniture it looks phenomenal.
And we switch from warm to cool paint for painting the dining room. Cold, but of course perfect.
Green color for the dining room

If there is one color that overshadows blue in terms of relaxation, it is green. Located in the cool part of the color wheel, it is a relaxing and fresh color. It also accepts earth tones and wood very well.

Even in its strongest tones, where green becomes an extremely elegant and sophisticated color, it is of course also suitable for painting the dining room.

If all green seems excessive to you, you can combine it with white, as we see in the upstairs dining room, where the dark green wall is combined with white and still looks great with wood and metal furniture.

Although if we are looking for a touch of relaxation in the dining room, mint green is the perfect color for her. In addition, it also combines well with wood, especially light-toned wood, as well as white, among other colors.
Wallpaper for dining room walls

Obviously you couldn’t leave the wallpaper in the shade if we were talking about decorating the walls of the dining room. In any color, texture, pattern and design you want, wallpaper is always the perfect wall covering. Keep that in mind.
As you may have noticed, there is no bad or inappropriate color to paint the dining room, what can be, and exists, is a bad color combination.
But whatever color you choose, if it is well combined, it can perfectly decorate the dining room.
