A dining-room wall gallery can be a good addition to any dining room. There are many reasons why the wall would be a good idea, but I will focus on the theme of the dining room. The wall is often used to display the furniture so the decorating is generally done around the piece of furniture. Even though you want the look of the room to be the focal point, it is wise to add the other pieces around the theme.
Adding Dining Room Wall Galleries
I would include the dinner plate in the room. It is easy to accessorize the dining room with this piece. Then you can change the look of the room by adding a different wall art piece to compliment the dining room decor. When decorating the walls, you want to make sure they don’t clutter the room. Too many decorations in the room can be overwhelming and take up valuable space.
You should keep the room fairly open to other accessories. If the theme is rustic then choose pieces that use rough, natural wood like rough-sawn cedar or rough painted pine. Wood is a great material for woodworking projects, so there is something to do with the wall gallery furniture after dinner.
You can also use the piece as a center piece for the room. Whether you use a special light in the dining room or you use candle holders, there is always something to highlight your new collection. One tip when using wall art pieces for a dining room is to place a dark-colored painting behind the wall art.
This works well because you can change the entire look of the room by changing the dark wall art. Don’t make the mistake of putting a large painting on the wall, use a smaller piece of art. Since the piece is often smaller, it will give the room a sense of space.
Place it where you want it to be and then keep it in the room. You don’t want it everywhere else in the house. You may find it’s distracting and unneeded if you have this decoration in every room.
Remember, you don’t want the dining room to become cluttered. You want it to be beautiful and have character. By keeping the look of the room and adding a piece, you are adding color to the room.
You will add interest to the room and the larger pieces can work in many different sizes. You don’t want the room to be too overstuffed or it will feel like a mess and not fun to go to.
