Paint and decorate your dining room to reflect the style and formality you wish to create. A casual family dining room calls for different paint and decor than an elegant formal dining room. Consider how you plan to use the room, what your decorating style is and any color preferences you have before you get started. The room should also appear to flow with other common areas of your home. If the surrounding rooms are ultra-modern stark white and black, the dining room may look out of place if you go with deep reds or a Mediterranean style.
