Do you have crisp white molding in your dining room? Have you considered painting them a color other than white? When done well, it can really create a dramatic space. Not only will the architectural shape of your molding pop out in a more personal way, but walls can look like artwork and doorways can completely vanish. See how it's done in the rooms below.
Although the palette is light, the box trim, chair rail and crown molding all stand out with a subtle beauty.
These painted molding boxes in black against crisp white walls create a simple and beautiful contrast in this contemporary space.
Decorative box molding up above! This is the perfect example of using the ceiling as your fifth wall. If your dining room doesn't have a tray ceiling, this is another option to bring in more drama.
In this dramatically fun dining space the door almost disappears by painting it — and the molding around it — black.
The custom paint finishes on the walls and the trim create a rich, Old World style.
The designer used chair rail molding here to give the blue wallpaper a more royal feel. It looks like the molding above and below is painted in a golden brown color, making this large dining room feel cozy and rich.
This dining room has a sense of Arts and Crafts style with original personality. Painting all the walls the same color, including the molding, allows the texture and depth from the grid to come through.
The drama in this space is through the wall's stripes. The trim is painted the same color as the pattern so it feels seamless.
This dining space is calm and airy with creamy walls, light furniture and chocolate finished trim and door. The finish on the door molding is just right, so as not to disrupt the Zen-like feeling.
The finish on all the decorative molding makes it look like it has been here forever, enhancing the magic of this dining room.
The crown and floor molding in subtle gold look regal and bold. They keep the Hollywood Glam style going in this dining room.
