20 Scandinavian Design Dining Room Ideas

Your dining room is where you share meals, entertain guests, and share holidays around your dining room table, maybe even eating off of your favorite, or most expensive dinnerware. Many people love showcasing their best pieces in the dining room, and making it a beautiful and inviting room is one of the biggest priorities for many homeowners. So what type of décor theme do you have for your dining room? There are so many ways you can decorate your dining room to make it an elegant showroom for you, your family, and your guest. One popular décor theme today, is the Scandinavian look. It is clean, neat, and very simplistic, and is the perfect design for people who do not like a lot of clutter or overzealous decorating themes that can look overstated or confusing. Scandinavian is also very appreciative of nature. It is a look that helps to bring some of the outdoor environment inside to create a more peaceful and serene atmosphere. If you love Scandinavian look and would like to transform your dining room into a Scandinavian dream, here are a few things you can do to start the process.

Furniture

When it comes to the Danish look of the Scandinavian design, the theory of less is more really applies here. Keep things simple and clutter free in your dining room. Furniture should exemplify this theory too. Simple dining room tables, chairs and other furniture pieces should be used in your dining room. Your table should be simple in design with not a lot of design cuts and architectural extras. Simple lines and shapes are the best for Scandinavian looks. For the perfect chairs, try using the Eiffel tower back in neutral tones, or you may choose to mix and match colors with a mix of neutral chair colors, with some bolder colors.

Colors

Speaking of colors, the neutral toned look is very telling of a Scandinavian design. A lot of simplistic colors, such as white on white, or black and white are very popular. Neutral toned woods or light colored woods are the best choices in furniture pieces, flooring or anything else that is wood in the room. The Danish are not big on using dark colored woods in their décor. When it comes to choosing colors for anything you use in your dining room, think “earthy,” and you are probably making a good choice.

Lighting

When it comes to choosing a chandelier to hang over your dining table, try picking something unique and whimsical. You can also choose light fixtures that remind you of something in nature. Whatever you decide on, it should be fairly simple and light to look at; not big, bulky and overstated. Use as much of your room’s natural light as much as possible, to keep the room looking open, airy and bright and cheery. You may not even want to put any window treatments on the windows at all, but if you do, light colored fabrics of linen or light cotton are the best for the Scandinavian look. The Danish are not big on weighing their windows down with big, heavy curtains and draperies.
