For a more inviting look, use a rug for your contemporary dining room that has subtle earth tones or geometric designs. But you can also use brighter earth tones if you want to have a touch of vibrancy in your room. For a more contemporary look, you can use bamboo and hemp rugs. You may also place a Persian rug under a glass-topped dining table for a more interesting look.
Most of the time, neutral colors are used for a contemporary design. You can use this for your dining room, too. But it would be better to use a basic color palette so that your look will remain cool even if new trends will come. Paint your walls with bright white, soft gray or medium taupe. You may also use bold chocolate brown or black for your dining room for a bold appearance. For your accessories, choose colors that will be a good accent like green, red or bright orange. Red and orange are said to be appetizing colors.
Your dining table is the star in your dining area. But it doesn't really have to be new. If you think your old one will still look good and apt, then use it. You can also change its color if you want to. Choose the right size and shape of your table. If your area is small, you can use a round table. Your seats should be comfortable. It has to complement with your table, too.
