Monochromatic dining rooms can negatively affect your appetite or your mood. However, it is not that simple to pick the right colors to your neutral dining area, as you should opt for the right and appropriate one! You will need to read a lot about room color psychology, so you can understand how colors change the feeling of a cert
“If your dining room is red, people may think you are a better cook,” says Harrington. Believe it or not, color does have an underestimated power over one’s psychology and preconceptions! Some colors stimulate certain feelings, others incite you to do certain things, and others can even make people think you are a better cook! As we all know, every room in our houses has its own function and character, and it turns out that the adequate choice of colors is one of the necessary elements that ensures this function to be smoothly and successfully performed. When it comes to dining rooms, since they are not spaces where we spend a lot of time, we can dare adding a strong color that is elegant yet dramatic at the same time. So, let’s think this through! First, it all depends on which perspective you are looking from. When deciding what color to paint, or which color to choose for your throw blankets, vases, curtains, etc. you may ask yourself first: which mood would I like for my dining room? Then, you may choose the colors that match this mood. So, there is a wide palette of warm and cool colors to look at. Warm colors include red, yellow, pink and orange; while cool colors comprise green, blue, and purple. If you happen to apply colors based on the function of the room, then, in the case of dining rooms, you may opt for warm colors like red or yellow, or the cool color purple. Red stimulates your appetite, which explains why it’s usually used in restaurants’ logos, menus, etc.; it also incites people to start conversations, which seems the perfect fit for the dining room purpose! Yellow was also shown to activate your appetite, being associated with happiness, as serotonin hormone, the feel-good hormone, is secreted in your body whenever you see the color yellow. As for purple, it brings excitement and luxury to the room’s mood. Color has also the power to alter the form and dimension of furnishings, as well as those of the room itself! Thus, in addition to the mood treatment of the room, you may choose colors that would enhance the dimensions of the dining room and its furniture. Light colors give the impression of a wider room, making it appear more spacious and welcoming, therefore, adhering to soft tones like off-white, shades of blue and green, when painting a dining room’s walls and ceiling, will make the room look bigger. Another simple hack for a more expansive dining room, is to paint your wall trim and moldings in a color that is lighter than your walls’ color. Following these tips, your dining room will definitely be more inviting and spacious than it was before, for you and your beloved ones to have breakfast, dinner, and lunch in the most optimal setting, getting the most out of your everyday meals’ time.
