When you objectively look at things, it does feel a little strange that we have pretty much typecast colors and tend to associate a feminine or masculine vibe with them almost instantly. While blue is the preferred color in most boys’ rooms, pink is the unchallenged winner in girls’ bedrooms. But beyond these specific areas, blue still finds plenty of love in the kitchen, living space and other areas of the house. In fact, blue is a perennial popular color in every room that you can think of and constantly sits at the top end of color trends chart. Pink on the other hand is just not as lucky!
Many of us are not too fond of using pink in public areas and tend to relegate the color to just niche spaces. But pink when used in the right manner can be just as impressive in the kitchen as it is in the shabby chic bedroom! Today, we go beyond traditional boundaries and take a look at some of the most gorgeous dining rooms that are draped in pink. Pink dining rooms come in a variety of styles and from the opulent to the minimal, this diverse collection has something in it for everyone. If you are worried about embracing pink, this is a story you just do not want to miss –
Bringing Pink to Dining Rooms
The easiest and most obvious way to give your dining room a colorful makeover is by re-painting the walls. This one might sound like a hassle, but painting the walls is arguably the least expensive way of altering the color scheme of a room when you compare it with the impact created. You can start off small by choosing an accent wall in the dining space and painting it pink. For those worried about a strong pink presence, pastel pink shades are the best option. Once you are happy with the result and wish to expand further, painting rest of the dining room pink is all too easy. White trims coupled with pink walls feel classy while combing pops of black with pink gives the room a sophisticated, modern vibe.

A Smart Infusion of Color
Of course, not everyone is happy with a solution that is as simple and straightforward as painting the walls pink. This is where alternate options come to your rescue. Adding pink accents, chairs in pink or even a plush rug in fuchsia can give the room a pinkish vibe without going overboard. With accents and chairs you have the comfort of knowing that you can switch between colors at any time without having to worry about a major style revamp. Another fun and less-utilized option is the pink ceiling, which is equally dramatic and gives the dining space in open plan living an aura of its own.

These exquisite dining areas feel far more vibrant, cozy and with décor in wood, gorgeous lighting a hint of timeless charm, they are bound to serve you well for years to come. If you love a splash of pink, then 2020 is the perfect time to bring it out of your wardrobe and bedroom and give it a more mainstay presence in the living space, kitchen or dining room.
