Chair rail is a classic and traditional way to add depth and formality to your dining room.

Chair rail is one of our top requested dining room features, and will continue to be popular in 2014 Raleigh custom homes.  

The Built In Art Niche in this version of the Summerlyn adds more unique character to this Dining Room.

 

 

 

 

Dining room wall idea #2: Rectangle wainscoting panels

Wainscot panels, also referred to as trim panels, usually extend about 1/3 of the wall height.

While wainscoting can stand on its own, formal dining rooms usually integrate wainscot panels below the chair rail for additional formality. 

White wainscoting can be matched with any wall color - although more traditional dining rooms tend to be painted red.

 

Dining room wall idea #3: Square wainscoting panels

The shape, width, and height of dining room wainscoting can vary, depending on how you want your dining room to feel.

The antiqued light fixture and beige walls give this formal dining room a bit of mixed-genre character.
