Life's complicated, so keep it simple where you can. This moto can easily be applied to designing your home too. Simple doesn't mean drab, boring, or lacking personality, though. There are plenty of ways to design any room easily and simply, but today, we're focusing in on how to design a simple dining room. Whatever your design style or preferences may be, we think our advice will help you design your space without breaking a sweat.
One of the best ways to make a simple space is to go minimal. What do you need in a dining room? A table and chairs. Does that mean you should throw style out the window? Absolutely not! You can choose any style you like, but if you really want to lean into simplicity, choose furniture that has simple lines and minimal colors and patterns. Modern style in particular works well in scenarios like this.
If your walls already have a lot of character to them, let them shine as the key detailing of the room. The white brick wall in this photo adds a lot of texture and design to the room, to the point where it's unnecessary to add in any other decor that would make it seem cluttered. Going with white brick walls isn't the only option though; there are hundreds upon hundreds of ideas out there for accent walls or textured walls, so do some research and see which style you fall in love with.

When you live in an open floor layout, it's hard to separate one space from another. So, maybe the spaces shouldn't be separate. Once again, choose minimal furniture for your dining room, but then have at least one element that ties it with whatever else it shares a room with. This room shows dark wood chairs connecting back to the kitchen. The kitchen naturally has more in it, even just accounting for shelving and countertops. By keeping the dining room simple but connected, you allow your eye to be drawn from one simple space to the next space down the path.
We've seen plenty of examples that work with a neutral color palette, but none quite like this. This room really is light, with its white furniture and light beige rug and curtains. However, this incorporation of the table runner adds in just the pop this room needs. When stylizing your space, think about adding in that one vibrant color in a world of light neutrals. You can go simple without any sort of pattern on the runner or rug, or you can add in some details if you feel like the room is too sparse without them. Regardless, you can see just how effective it is to add in that one flair of color right in the center of the space.
As you can see, there are so many ways to create a simple dining room space. Oftentimes it includes being minimal with the furniture and accents you use, but that's not always the case. And just because some of our examples showed a lot of neutral colors, that doesn't mean that bold colors and patterns are off limits! Study the dining rooms that you love most, implement our tips and tricks, and you'll be well on your way to creating a simple dining room with ease.
