Dining Room Colors

The dining room is a place where one shares special times and delicious food.  Dining room decorators put in a lot of thought into decorating your dining room.  A lot of emphasis goes into colors as research has shown that colors affect mind, body, and emotions, not to mention appetites.

It are dining room decorators who are solely responsible for your perfectly chosen furniture, wonderful accessories, and the colors that will make your food and the space more appealing.  If the right color is not chosen even the most exquisite furniture or accessories seems dismal, and it adversely affects the appearance of the food making it less appealing.  Your senses needs to be swayed and the eyes convinced even before your food is tasted and for that you need to give significance to colors.

You can mix and match, use bolder tones or neutral colors depending on your choice.  If you are a foodie and love to pamper your taste buds then go for lighter shades like peach, green or pink that make your food look delicious and ready to be savored.  If you wish you can use these colors as table cloth, napkins or wall color. And if your are health conscious or are trying to fight obesity, then better go for dark shades like purple or blue as they act as suppressants- you can use blue plates or blue cups to keep your weight in check.

You can create a striking effect in your dining room by painting your walls in lighter shades and in contrast to it by adding furniture, rugs, window curtains, or other décor in brighter tone.  If you are bold enough than you can consider wall textures as they add that extra zing.  Dining room designers recommend avoiding dark hues in the dining room as they may subtly affect your appetites.  Colors can also be selected based upon the theme you wish for your dining room.  

A well judged color theme can enhance the beauty of your dining room thereby creating a lively atmosphere.  All said it is always up to your choice and taste on  how you wish your dining room overall design and color to be as it represents the real you.
