The phrase “formal dining room” often elicits images of stuffy, traditional dining spaces fit for fancy events only. But a dining room doesn’t have to feel formal to be formal. Modern dining room spaces are just as classy and alluring as traditional dining rooms, but a little more approachable.
Whether you’re into the Mid-century modern look. Or you want to opt for something even more contemporary, the streamlined look and feel of a modern dining room is a great way to give your space an updated, refreshing vibe.
Add Modern Art
Take a cue from this beautiful modern space and add a vibrant piece of modern art, like this one from johanna_reynolds, to create a finished, purposeful look in your dining room. Modern furniture is often comprised of stark lines and sleek angles, which could make a room feel stark and cold. But by adding a pop of color with an oversized piece of art, you can create a warmer, cozier look while maintaining a contemporary tone.
Go for Graphics
This stunning dining room from kcharlottephoto features soft yellow chairs. An eye-catching modern chandelier, and a stunning graphic rug to tie the whole look together. While modern can mean a lot of different things to different people. We think decorating in a modern style gives you a little more freedom to experiment with bolder colors and designs that won’t clash with the furniture.
Keep it Simple
On the other hand, this modern dining space from lily_atno3 proves that with the right furniture, you can still keep your space simple and minimalist in approach without it feeling stark or unfinished. When opting for a simple, modern look, pick a dining room paint color. That will add dimension to the space and play well with your table and chairs.

Chic and Elegant
This dining room from easyinterieur takes is a chic, feminine take on modern style. We love the ghost chairs and gold finishes that give it a glam look and feel. When adding gold accents to your dining space, keep the rest of the space muted with whites, beiges or soft pinks to avoid creating a stuffy atmosphere.
Contemporary design often features a mix of neutral and bold colors and deliberate use of textures and statement-making materials. We love this dining room from meinhausstaging, which features deep blue chairs with a gold metal finish, plus an eye-catching chandelier.
