White dining room ideas for every home

Light, cool, and airy. These are words associated with white interiors, and are desirable attributes in any dining room. Scandi, minimal, and country cream. These are interior styles that could be enhanced by light coloured furniture, whether that’s oak, or painted white, cream, or paler grey.

Pale painted walls

Painting the walls of a dining room a pale colour, whether brilliant white or a light-toned neutral colour, will open it up to light. Then the decision needs to be made – choose traditional country charm or modern, sophisticated style?

Traditional style

Continuing the pale painted colours from the walls through to the dining table and chairs is easily done with our range of painted dining furniture. Almond grey coloured Shay, with turned legs and beading detail, is a slim, country influenced style that’s topped with rustic oak.

Fitting out a dining area with dresser and table instantly makes a hub for the family, a place to gather for meals. There’s fun to be had displaying glass and white crockery on the shelves, which all adds to the light interior style. Kemble is another painted range at the pale end of the spectrum, a soft-edged country look with rustic oak tops.

When putting together a white dining room, accessories can accentuate the theme. A white or cream lamp placed on the sideboard or a clock with a pale frame can all add to a bright and light room.

Glass can reflect light, as well. Use a mirror hung along the back of a sideboard, or choose a glass lamp. They’ll be especially effective by being placed near a window.
