With over one hundred and thirty different wallpapers in the dining room range from Only Wallpaper, there will be something for every taste. The dining room is probably the room in the
house where the usage has changed a lot with recent years. Once a room that was hardly used, except on high days and holidays, now it is very much part of family life and if it is not being used for a meal the table is often co-opted as an extra desk or craft surface. Many people, therefore, see their dining room as a less formal space than used to be the case. There are many excellent papers in the range, whichever style you decide to adopt and if your table is against the wall you will be pleased to know that many of our dining room wallpapers are spongeable.
An accent wall is fun in a dining room and there are all kinds to choose from on the Only Wallpaper website and in store. If you have a casual or farmhouse kitchen dining suite, or have even decided to go down the eclectic route with mismatched chairs and cutlery, something like our stacked logs, bricks or road signs would look very good and will fit in with the look very well. For a rather more formal but still fun effect, we have a cutlery design from Distinctive that will raise a smile. Because dining rooms are often smaller and more intimate that other rooms in the house, they can often be decorated in dark and dramatic colours and designs and we have a large range in the darker shades, from deep blues, through plum to black. If you choose a dark colour for the walls, a table would look stunning dressed with a pure white tablecloth, perhaps with accent napkins. And all done with wallpaper!
Stripes are a classic choice for dining room wallpaper and if your room does have a dual purpose, this is a good style to adopt, because stripes look fresh and crisp whether by day or night. Some of the heavier wallpapers might not suit the dining room which is being used as a family room, but stripes will look good always. By matching colours, easily done on the Only Wallpaper item pages with the other suggestions option, an accent wall of floral paper looks wonderful with stripes.
