8 Dining Room Feature Wall Ideas For That Extra Sparkle

February 12, 2020
BOOKMARK

Dining rooms should be welcoming and comfortable. It is a place to converge, to dine, to entertain friends and for families to spend time together. One of the best ways to create a cosy ambience in your dining room is by dressing it up with a feature wall. Decorating one wall can instantly give a contemporary update to your dining room and encourage you and your family to gather around the dining table instead of eating your meal from the living room sofa.

Ready for inspiration to transform your dining room blank wall once and for all? Ahead, we share a host of feature wall ideas to give your dining room the attention it deserves!


1. Get geometric

Geometric patterns can add eye-catching vigour to a dining room. In this minimalist home, one side of the wall is covered in a geometric pattern in grey and blue colour combo to give it a cosy vibe, while the other side of the wall is painted in white and decorated with a framed art that reflects the same shapes, creating unity and flow in the serene dining space.

2. Keep it simple with wall panelling

If you don’t want to overwhelm the entire dining room with patterned wallpaper, try decorating your bare walls with wall panelling for a quieter but equally eye-catching effect. This stark white wall panelling gives a unique character to the walls without a lot of work.

Meanwhile, pops of yellow, by way of the dining chairs, and statement-making modern light fixtures add a dose of energy to the dining room.

3. Choose a theme

This dining room features a 3D illustration of a world map to show the homeowner’s appreciation for travel without sacrificing their love of simplicity. We also love how the dark red hue of the 3D map continues around the room and onto the dining chairs to create a co-ordinated look.

4. Emulate your favourite restaurant with a chalkboard

Nothing beats having a meal in a restaurant, but you easily recreate that same feeling in your own home. For instance, a blackboard feature wall adds an extra layer of aesthetic appeal to this dining room besides giving a reference point of sitting and dining in a restaurant where you can write down today’s menu on the board.

5. Mirror the walls

Mirrors have the power to open up space and make a room look brighter. For instance, this large mirror that covers the entire dining room wall adds depth to the area and catches the natural light that enters from the balcony area to illuminate the modern home decor. Gold accent and stylish ceiling light help to make the entire area look extra elegant.

6. Spotlight your wall decals

Wall decals are one of the easiest and the most affordable material to transform a blank wall, especially in the dining room. Take design cues from this urban abode that feature a vibrant zebra wall decal. A full-length mirror is installed on the opposite side of the wall so that the graphic can still be seen whilst dining on each side of the table.

This home turned blank walls into a symmetrical gallery of artwork with numerous frames of the same size. Aside from that, the walls are painted in calming mint green hues and a wallpaper that gives the impression of real wood panels for a cosy, country cottage appearance.

8. Try a statement display cabinet

This apartment made use of an empty wall in the dining area by adding a statement-making display cabinet to create a focal point of the room. The designer has installed simple, minimalist shelving in dark wood to display a few of the homeowner’s favourite objects to maintain a modern look. Meanwhile, the combination wood table with circular rose gold pendant lamps creates a polished and fresh ambience for entertaining or dining with family members.
