The challenge with dining rooms with tall ceilings is to keep them from seeming cold and uninviting, literally and figuratively. This space, after all, has a distinct purpose—to create a welcoming atmosphere for family and guests. But as our gallery will show you, there are many opportunities for sticking to its function in many beautiful ways.

Colors of Dining Rooms

The color can have a significant impact on the spaciousness of a room, especially when combined with the tall ceilings. For the most part, that sense of roominess is desirable because it means less clutter and enough space to move around. Our interior design survey bears out these traits. The top five picks are:

  • Brown
  • White
  • Gray
  • Beige
  • Black

These choices reflect the overall color of the room. We found some differences when it came to the wall color. The most popular ones include:

  • White
  • Beige
  • Gray
  • Blue
  • Green

The inclusion of blue and green may seem at odds with the others. But each of these hues has pleasing associations of nature, tranquility, and serenity that are conducive to creating an inviting space.

Types of Lighting

One way you can instantly transform a room with tall ceilings is with adequate lighting. It’ll enhance the feeling of openness and cleanliness that colors like white bring to space. There are several options you can explore since you may need more than one solution. They include:

  • Recessed
  • Track
  • Pendant
  • Wall fixtures
  • Skylight

One of the great opportunities you have with a tall ceiling is the chance to add an eye-catching focal point such as a chandelier. It can do double-duty as both a decorative object and a practical one to brighten any dark corners. You can opt to repurpose a vintage piece to add a conversation starter that’s sure to work every time.

Styles of Dining Rooms

Certain decors prevail as longstanding favorites with dining rooms. Like color choices, your selection of style can overcome any issues with the space feeling uninviting, especially if you choose one that feel familiar and right at home. The leading picks in our survey include:

Each one offers many options for making the most out of the best features of a tall ceiling. Often they have decorative elements such as molded trim or beams which add character to a room. Rather than fight it, work with it and see how you can make it a part of your dining room’s statement.
