For people who love to entertain family and friends at home, a large dining room constructs a perfect stage. Whilst a well-proportioned stage leaves plenty of room to seat multiple guests, it can present extra challenges when it comes to choosing appropriate decor and complementary dining furniture. In this collection of 40 large dining rooms, we’ve curated a wealth of inspiration that covers numerous dining room aesthetics and personal tastes. We’ll look at art for the dining room, decorative wall mirrors, shelving units, stylish buffets, dining room chandeliers and pendant lights, wall lamps, wall paneling ideas, dining room rugs, flooring, and much more.
Build artistic borders. These two wood-paneled inserts make a modern statement at either end of a neoclassical decor scheme. Classical busts are given a quirky update to complete the statement.
Create a focal ceiling. Where walls are bare and furniture is minimal, push the boat out with an eye-catching paneled ceiling treatment and a showstopping installation of pendant lights.
This naturally beautiful wood-clad ceiling treatment complements the home’s lush green surroundings.
Make your dining room lighting a mesmerizing spectacle by day or night with multiple, light-reflective glass globe pendants.
Give a large dining room an outdoor feel with a huge skylight, exposed brickwork walls, and cane dining chairs.
Go all in with granite. This granite tiled wall features a fluted texture around its lower two-thirds to sculpt extra interest.
Balance your room with a symmetrical layout. This wooden dining table draws the eye to land exactly at the center of a 5-unit kitchen run and diptych wall art. The orientation of the rectangular wooden table top, echoed by neat wooden slats across the ceiling, visually elongates the room.
Increase texture in the room. These diamond-tufted upholstered dining chairs are complemented by geometric detailing in a wall of decorative wood grain panels. A chandelier creates sparkling texture with tiny glass droplets, while an indoor plant feathers the corner of the room.
Alternate chair colors. Assorted dining chair colors aren’t reserved for laid-back, eclectic interiors. A collection of contrasting chair colors works well in formal dining spaces to break up a particularly long line of furniture.
You always need more windows. A wide view of the garden is fabulous, a wraparound view is even better.
Layer upon layer of luxury. Sublime chairs and a stunning dining table deserve an equally impressive backdrop. Apply a wall of decorative mirrors, luxe marble accents, classic panel molding, and elegant wall lights to fashion a fully sumptuous affair.
Smooth, sophisticated, and splendid, black marble sets a striking scene.
Twin dining room pendants look twice as nice.

Please dinner guests with an evenly illuminated table. Go for an elongated sputnik chandelier like this one, or pair to accommodate a much longer room.
If you want your guests to truly connect, make space around your dining set. An airy, easy-breezy layout with natural materials will instantly put everyone at ease. Make a no-phone rule at the table and people may just remember the art of uninterrupted conversation.
Paint a teal dream. Include walls, crown molding, baseboards, and the ceiling within a solid teal paint scheme, washed over beautiful boiserie.
Invite a classical statue to be your guest of honor around the dinner table. Don’t forget to give her the spotlight.

Craft a sculptural scene with unique, handcrafted dining room pendant lights.
Often, all focus goes on the central light fixture in a dining room. However, wall lights are useful in creating the right ambiance.
Use a large, round dining table to pull everyone into the conversation. Long, rectangular tables lead to separate pockets of conversation from one end to the other.
A neoclassical dining room with a high ceiling requires elements that draw the eye up. Choose art with vertical subjects, and pendants with deeper shades.
