If you’re entertaining the idea of remodeling your dining area or shopping for a house, it’s possible that you might’ve heard the phrase “white contemporary dining room”. As specific as this phrase might sound, it does leave a lot of questions, such as: what exactly makes this style of dining room different from others? Is it an option worth considering? Don’t worry–you won’t have to wonder for long. Below are the answers to these questions and a more in-depth guide all about white contemporary dining rooms.

What’s the Difference Between a Contemporary and Modern Dining Room?

When describing a dining room as “contemporary” or “modern”, many people believe these words can be used interchangeably. However, the truth is, these terms can mean very different things style-wise. In the context of interior design, “modern” is actually a set style developed during the Mid-1900s and it does not change. The style focused on creating a spacious, mostly color-neutral environment through the use of natural materials. Today, a modern dining room could have white walls, hardwood flooring, and polished metals–three common aspects of modern interior design. Contemporary, on the other hand, is not a fixed style but is based on what is popular at this moment. The furniture, shapes, and materials used could be made in any time period–which is often the case–and the result is a mix-up of all sorts of different trends.

Are White Contemporary Dining Rooms Currently in Style?

Yes, they most definitely are. Most recently, people have been flocking to the idea of a white contemporary dining room–and for many reasons. As mentioned before, the contemporary style is always changing; when people begin to create their perfect white dining room, they aren’t limited to what kind of furniture they can buy or what time period it has to be from. Instead, they can shop for what they like and what is popular and they can change it as they please. Also, a white contemporary dining room has a very appealing aesthetic to it–it looks clean, open and spacious–and these are the kind of traits people tend to like for their dining rooms.

What Are the Popular Shades of White for Dining Rooms?

If you’ve ever painted your walls before, you probably understand that for every color, there’s a multitude of different shades to go along with it. The color white is no exception to this rule, and for dining rooms, there’s a lot of white shades that are popular–and some that aren’t. Some of these more appealing options include Ivory White–which is a warmer white–and White Dove–which is softer and brighter shade. If the White Dove shade is just a little too warm for you, the Seapearl White might work better–it’s a cooler color with a dash of gray in it.

What Are Contemporary Design Elements in a Dining Room?

Perhaps one of the most distinguishable features of a contemporary dining room is the light. You’ll never see a contemporary dining room that is excessively dark or closed off. By utilizing windows, skylights and light fixtures, you can always make sure your room is bright and welcoming. Another key feature is bare flooring–you’re much more likely to find hardwood flooring or ceramic tiles in a contemporary dining room than you would carpet. These bare floors not only emphasize the light in the room but make space feel airier. Lastly, an important contemporary design element is simplicity. Contemporary homes–not just dining rooms–opt for details, furniture, and accessories that look smooth and simple instead of like extravagant works of art.

Is White Furniture Used Much in This Style of Dining Room?

For the most part, the answer is yes. While not every single feature in the dining room needs to be white in order to qualify as such, most contemporary do contain a significant portion of white furniture. For instance, a lot of dining rooms do contain white chairs and either glass or white tables as well. These large pieces of furniture stand out and draw attention, and when thinking of a contemporary white dining room, they’re usually the first thing you think of. That being said, there can be some variation here with the color of furniture and it really depends on an individual’s choice.

Although there might be a lot of factors and questions to consider when thinking about this style of dining room, one of the great aspects about the white contemporary dining room is that there’s no standard rulebook for it–you have plenty of room for creativity and experimentation.
