Dining in Black and White

Nothing is more stunning that a black and white room. When it comes to dining, it’s tops. You can go contemporary, modern or country. No matter what style you select, black and white is an eye-catching combination. Let me show you how to use it in your dining space.

• Contemporary and Modern

Contemporary and modern style just lends itself to black and white. Pair black painted wood tables and cabinets with white acrylic chairs for a clean, bold look. Or flip the arrangement with a white acrylic table and add black leather chairs. Clear acrylic chairs work with either a black or white table and keeps the room looking open and airy.

White wall and black floors make a dining room with contemporary flair. Black and white tile or black plank floors would be a perfect base for your furnishings.

• Infused with Silver

If you want a really bold look for your black and white dining room, use a tone-on-tone black wallpaper and pair it with a teak colored side and dining table. Bring in a large silver mirror and chandelier with silver-studded leather chairs. It’s a look you’ll never get tired of.

• White Wash and Black

For a little twist on white, use white wash instead of painted white for your furnishings. A white-washed floor with a table and bench combination can be flanked with two black upholstered wing chairs for maximum impact.

Keep the wall and ceiling white – then hang two large, drum lights over the dining table. Reflect it all on a wall-length mirror installation and you’ll have double the style in your dining space.

• A Touch of Country

Black and white country is great country – not matter how you arrange it. Whether you use black Windsor chairs around a black table with a wall of white china cabinets or a turned wood table and chairs, the look is comfortable and cozy. It’s a perfect family dining environment.

• Pretty Patterns

Add a black and white pattern on the wall of your room for a really ornate dining space. With a pattern on the wall, you can use the simplest of furnishings and still have a perfect place to enjoy a meal.
