What size should a formal dining room be? These dining rooms are about 12' x 16.5' with a bay bump out on the front of the home. 

Dining Room Layout #1: Red painted walls, coffer ceiling, white column, wainscoting

VS

Dining Room Layout #2: Beige painted walls, trey ceiling, art niche, chair rail

Each dining room integrates archways. The first uses an interior white column to bridge two arched ceilings, designed to emphasize an open concept layout with views into the foyer and staircase. 

The second keeps a simple, elegant design with a single archway at each entrance.

Top 5 Red Paint Colors for the Dining Room

Posted by Penny Hull on Thu, Dec 17, 2015 @ 11:12 AM

Best Paint Colors to use in a Formal Dining Room:

Hues of red often accent the walls of traditional formal dining rooms. Take a look at the NC new home photos below to see modern examples of how to integrate traditional red paint with contemporary dining room styles, trim features, and built-ins.



Most Popular Paint Colors for a Dining Room:

Dining rooms are usually built as formal spaces with columns, archway entrances, window rows, chair rail trim, wainscot panels, trey ceilings, and butler's pantries. Special details like trim style and built-in cabinetry features will help determine the best paint color schemes for your dining room.

Get ideas for your new home paint colors from these red dining rooms. And see why red paint is no longer reserved for traditional home plans.

Red Paint Color #1: "SW 2915 Sun-dried Tomato"

This formal dining uses two popular paint colors, red and gray, with white accents in the trim, wainscoting, and trey ceiling details.

A mini crystal changelier centers the formal dining table. Archways lead to the kitchen (with butler's pantry in the hallway) and foyer.

Red Paint Color #3: "Rum Spice 160F-5" and "Colony Buff 7723"

Red paint tends to work best when paired with other strong elements, such as a crystal chandelier or accent paint color.

In this formal dining room, a beige paint ("Colony Buff 7723") on the lower portion of the walls gives more texture to the room. Dual columns also break up the space, and soften the bold paint choices.

Red Paint Color #4: "SW 7595 Sommelier"

White wainscoting, coffer ceiling, and column contrast against the dark red dining room paint selection.

For confidence when choosing a deep paint color, make sure to ask your builder how trim, columns, coffer ceilings, and other details can work together with your paint selections.

Red Paint Color #5: "SW 6320 Bravado Red"

White trim and wainscoting panels are a great design technique to break up any paint color, including a bright red hue.

The two-step trey ceiling, archways, and arched nooks allow you to make bolder paint choices in this formal dining room.
