5 delicious dining room paint colours

Planning to give your dining room a makeover and looking for a bit of inspiration? While many people once thought (and not too long ago) that red was the best colour for a dining room, the crimson tide has definitely taken a turn. Of course, as with all aspects of interior decorating, the most important rule is to make yourself happy. So if a red room is still your thing, then by all means.

Here are 5 delicious dining room colours to help you revitalize your most appetizing space.

Yes! Of course we realize that pink is by no means for everyone, but hear us out. When subtle (not too baby, bubble gum or Barbie), pink can have a moment as a dining room colour… or perhaps it’s this specific dining room that has us thinking pink.
