50 Red Dining Room Ideas (Photos)


Here's a bold collection of red dining room design ideas. I'm not talking about some red vases or chairs, but fully red dining rooms that you simply cannot miss.

Make a statement with a red dining room.  Red is more popular than you think because it’s bold and as you’ll see below, can be grand and elegant.  While not for everyone, red can certainly be an interesting interior design color scheme.  I actually like it quite a bit.

The drama of a red dining room is unmistakable. It grabs your attention and forces you to look. That is its purpose. It is like the Marilyn Monroe of colors. Everyone notices her. If you want to make an impression, red is the hue you want. It symbolizes many things including passion and energy. It also can stimulate conversation.

Red serves a myriad of purposes as our red dining room design ideas will show you. It evokes the timelessness of shades like Tuscan red. It has an edgy quality with the appropriately named scarlet red. It embodies the elegance of Burgundy. Red says it all in so many ways. The best thing about it is that you can match the mood and intensity with the hue.

Have we piqued your curiosity? Explore what you can do with red in our gallery of dining rooms. You’re sure to find something to fall in love with in our showcase.

Add Drama to a Dining Room

Red stands out because of its vibrancy and warm undertones. If you want a room that people will remember long after the meal, it’s an excellent choice. Red connects on so many levels. After all, it’s the color of our lifeblood. It is life and vitality which is why we gravitate toward it. Use these qualities to create a memorable focal point.

You can use it as a color for your window treatments a la theater curtains. Seriously, can anything be more dramatic? The fabric adds to the effect. Think silk or velvet for a luxurious feel. Or embrace a romantic look with lace. You can go natural in linen or cotton.

Create a Focal Point

Red is the ideal color to use as a focal point. It’ll give you an advantage right from the start. It attracts attention. You just need to find a way to create the effect. Think red pendant lights or an area rug. Or you can repurpose a vintage item like window shutters painted red. You can add splashes of color like red seat cushions or paintings of red-colored flowers like tulips or roses.

Make a Room Inviting

Red offers a way to make a room more inviting by the warmth it brings to space. A room with northern exposure can have the same welcoming atmosphere as a sunny one. The color makes a difference. You can use it as an overall color or on the trim for a more understated appearance.
