Wall colors are very important for it gives the mood of your house. Choose a color that are generally neutral or earth tones. For contemporary wall colors, dark and bright colors are rarely used for it doesn't give natural lighting. You can use bright white, soft gray or medium taupe for your walls. Just accent it with bright colored accessories.
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.
Instead of trying to light your dining area by using only a single source of light, illuminate it using various sources. Having different types of lights in your dining area can also serve as additional decors to your dining area. Also, when you have a single chandelier or overhead lighting as a source of light, it could be too bright making it uncomfortable. So, avoid creating a glare by using multiple layers of light.
