new kitchen doesn’t fit dining room

last year
We are almost done with a kitchen renovation. We opened the wall to the dining room, and now the two rooms just don’t work together. The kitchen will have a quartz lagoon countertop, it is white/gray with soft veining. Backsplash will likely be a grey tone subway to the ceiling around the hood and window. What do I do in the dining room? We were thinking of a shaker style wainscoting painted like the cabinets below on walls and maybe a black paint on top of the wall for drama. I can lose the hutch, and thought about painting the bottom of the cabinet black. Also, need a new light fixture, something. Closer to the ceiling because we want the room to feel casual and may hang a tv between the windows. Going for more of an eat in kitchen feel rather than formal dining room. The table and stool must stay, but everything else can change. Thanks for your help!
