40 Minimalist Dining Rooms That Will Leave You Hungry to Copy Their Style
Like the kitchen, the dining room is an essential gathering place for any home. It’s where families can gather after a long day apart and where guests can break bread with their hosts. The extravagant formal dining rooms of yore that made it difficult to talk to someone at the other end of the table have long since given way to something a bit simpler, where breakfast cereal is more common than a five-course meal. The dining rooms featured here are elegant in their simplicity. The minimalist aesthetic works so well in the dining room because it can create a clear, clean canvas for the tapestry of the next meal that will be shared at the sparse but beautiful table.
As with so many minimalist rooms, white will be a popular color palette in the minimalist dining room. In this Scandinavian style dining room, white walls and concrete floors create a bright, airy space in an industrial-style loft.
When a large statement dining pendant doesn’t quite work, more subtle pendant lighting combined with recessed lighting can be design-friendly as well as practical. The Eames shell chair is a another stylish addition.
This dining room just manages to squeak into the minimalist aesthetic with its limited palette and clean lines, but large dining pendants and a huge art piece make this room a bit bolder than some of the others.
