Dining Room Delight A Guide to Choosing the Perfect Wallpaper for Your Space

Transform your dining room into an extremely stylish dining room with wallpapered walls. Read on to learn how to choose the right wallpaper for your home.


Wallpapered walls are very popular with modern, extremely stylish homeowners. As avid wallpaper lovers, we love them in every room of the house. And since we love the whole concept of socializing and celebrating, in this blog we’ll talk about wallpapering your dining room.


So if you’re new to the world of wallpaper, you’ll have a million questions about how to choose the right wallpaper for your dining room. Whether you’re in the mood for a mural, an abstract print or a wallpaper with a delicate floral pattern, use our tips below to find the perfect wallpaper for any dinner party.

Choose the right color

The right color can set the mood in any room in your home. A cheerful, refreshing atmosphere is always the order of the day in a dining room where you share meals with friends and family. Colors can also change the visual dimension of a room. If you live in a small apartment or your dining room is small, choose patterned wallpaper in cool tones such as blue, purple or green. This automatically makes your room appear larger and the ceilings slightly higher. Soft, cool colors create a calm atmosphere, while intense, cool colors add drama and freshness to a room. Warm colors like yellow, orange and red live up to their name and make your room feel warmer. If you live in colder climates or your dining room faces north, opt for these colors. The more intense the color, the more drama it adds to a room.

How to choose wallpaper for your dining room

Think about the lighting

If your dining room has dark walls or the room has no windows, choose wallpaper that reflects light in the room. In such a scenario, you can opt for bright patterned or metallic wallpapers. Look for elegant patterns as these wallpapers reflect maximum light. Dark colors absorb the light in the room, ultimately making your space appear smaller. Therefore, consider all the light sources in your dining room and choose your wallpaper accordingly.

Choose the right style

You need to choose a wallpaper style that fits the overall aesthetic of your dining room. If you want to add a formal look, choose wallpapers with large motifs or patterns and dramatic colors. For a casual, fun style, choose wallpapers with small motifs like polka dots.

Hide blemishes with textured wallpaper

Patterned wallpaper with original or apparent textures can help you hide defects on your dining room wall. Some of the patterns with unique finishes include burlap, twine, foil, fabric and expanded vinyl. Other wallpapers visually resemble materials such as marble and wood.

Mix and match, but carefully

Mixing two wallpaper patterns in a single room is slowly becoming a trend. If you’re willing to experiment, choose wisely. Remember that a dining room with multiple patterns and prints can cause turmoil. If you’re incorporating florals, stripes, or plaid into your dining room or between adjoining rooms, choose patterns that reflect the same hue or multiple hues of it to make the combination graceful and seamless.


Now that you know how to choose the right wallpaper for your dining room, you also need to know how to determine the number of rolls of wallpaper you need. Follow these steps.


Measure the walls you want to cover with wallpaper, then multiply the height by the width of each wall in feet

Add up all of the wall dimensions to determine the total square footage

Remove all windows and doors

Check the roll’s label to see how many square feet it covers and make sure it is larger than the total square footage of the wall

Purchase an additional roll to ensure you have enough. Mistakes happen and it’s good to have an extra roll of wallpaper (that you can return later)

Note: Each wallpaper is installed differently. Before applying your wallpaper, prepare your wall surface according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
