A unique center piece adds appeal to this contemporary dining room. The large painting on the wall makes an interesting focal point to the view. Glass top dining tables are commonly used nowadays which can help make the room look brighter. Using white for the seating pieces makes the dining furnishings a great focal point. The refreshing character of wood and plants combined creates an amazing 'green' twist to this contemporary dining room.
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.
For dining room furniture, use those with strong lines, straight edges and right angles. Curves can also be used but these curves are soft. You can use wooden or metal dining chairs that have straight backs. But you can also use upholstered chairs with solid colors. Avoid using prints for it is not really used for a contemporary design. For your dining table, choose the kind that has sleek lines. A wooden table that has clean lines will be good. Or you may opt for a glass topped table with silver legs.
