Dining Room Inspiration

We recommend using all-new Dead Flat® for your room transformation.

Dining Room in Blue Maize No.CB11 | Dead Flat®


Whether sociable open-plan or cosy standalone, everyday living space or just for occasions, dining rooms come in all shapes and sizes, so why be restricted to one style of decorating? It’s not just the shade you choose, but the way you use it, that creates a versatile, welcoming and visually stunning space, as illustrated by our schemes for modern and traditional dining rooms below.

Light & Airy
