How to Recognize a Light and Bright Dining Room

A light and bright dining room is typically decorated with a light paint color, such as white, cream, light beige, or a light tone of a color. These could also include bright colors for those homeowners who love more of an eclectic interior. These dining rooms often feature glass furniture to reflect more light around the room or lightly upholstered furniture too.

Fun Facts:

Light and bright dining rooms have become increasingly popular over the last few years because of the shift in trendy design styles. Many people love the light and earthy tones of interior design which lends itself well to creating a light and bright dining room. A light and airy environment lends itself well for dining because of needing this to eat. These light dining rooms will look great no matter what time of day it is, and any bright colors used will pop too.

The term “light and bright” doesn’t necessarily mean all white walls if you have a large window in your dining room. The natural light can be bounced around the room with cleave mirror placement so you can introduce some color into the room too. Use decorative accessories and artwork to bring color into the room. If you don’t have a large window in your dining room, use light-colored furniture such as cream linens and even glass for the dining table itself. This will give the illusion of light space.

Style Clues

This style often includes:

  • Light colors and textures (avoiding the use of too much dark tones)
  • Light wood finishes   
  • Bright colors
  • Extra color injected through decorative accessories and artwork
