5 colourful dining rooms

Get inspired to give your dining room a new lease of life by infusing it with some colour

Why limit colour only to the living and bedrooms? There’s plenty of scope to play with in the dining room as well, and there’s more than one way of doing it too! Even if you don’t want to repaint the entire space, just retouching the dining table and chairs can make the space seem as good as new.

Bright table runners, coasters with peppy prints and small, tinted glass vases with fresh flowers, not to mention crockery and cutlery too, can play a role in making your dining space more colourful.

Either way, don’t be afraid to experiment; mix and match different patterns, materials and textures to create a visually appealing space.
