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.
Place plinth lighting low on a sideboard or in storage areas that are placed near the dining area. Place it at the bottom area. This can give more ambience to the room as it directs light towards the floor. This can be an opportunity for your flooring to be noticed. You can also place candles in your dining room. You can even let it stand in a candelabrum which can be an added accessory to the room. Using candles can add ambience for a romantic dinner and for other purposes. But, you don't have to use it every day. Use it on special occasions. When not in use, it can still be a good accessory.
Choose a centrepiece that will enhance the beauty of your dining room. You can have a simple vase with fresh flowers or plants minimally used and arranged. You do not have to make it look too bulky. The simpler the centrepiece, the better. You can place white flowers with green leaves. Candles can also do the work well. You can choose earth tones for your centrepiece to get that contemporary look.
