Thoughts on an Inviting Dining Room



It’s holiday time and entertaining friends and family members can mean using the dining room which may normally sit untouched. This can lead to worry about having the room looking its best before going on display. What better way to celebrate than to have a new coat of paint and color in your showcasing room! Pro Painters, your Houston painting company, is here to help you make the best choice possible for your space, so contact us via phone or web today. We can get this taken care of before Christmas!

Dramatic Dining
Benjamin Moore’s Aura Interior paints can lend inspiration to you for this room, as they resist fading with their deep, rich colors. You should consider using a strong color since the room isn’t used for long periods of time. Silvery grays or rich, warm golds, corals, or reds can look both dramatic yet elegant and make your space glow the way they work with lighting, such as Ruby Red or Geranium. You can also use white on the trim below a colored wall to create a more modern look. To give walls more depth and luster, they should be painted with soft sheens, such as satin, semi-gloss, or eggshell. These particular paints have no color rub off, stains wash off easily, and they are mildew resistant with zero VOC so they work excellently for this room in your house. Keep in mind, proper prep work is necessary for a higher gloss level because a high sheen will highlight imperfections.

Room Elements Inspire
For some people, the inspiration for your paint color will come from the other elements of the room, be it the furniture, windows, or floor. Fabrics or wood tones present can suggest a specific choice which makes the most sense for your space, so try to take it all in and see what happens.

Room Flow
If the colors relate in the adjacent rooms to the dining room there will be a better flow within your house. This means pairing warm (yellow, orange, and red) and cool (purple, blue, and green) shades together. You can use Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams swatches to find complementary colors if you are using their paint for your house.

Regardless of whether you wish to create drama or a feeling of serenity in your dining space, it’s important to have a spotless room so you won’t be judged by company when they come over and sit there. No one wants a nit picker to ruin their special holiday gathering! With our extensive Houston interior painting experience, Pro Painters can always aide you in perfecting your dining room and/or any others in need of minor or serious touch-ups.
