8 black dining room table ideas for your home

These stunning black dining room table ideas are just the inspiration you need for ways to use black in your dining room

Black in dinings rooms — in fact, black in any room — is often a daring choice. But no other colour can work as well as black to give your space a modern and sophisticated look. If you’ve been on the fence about adding some black to your dining room, this blog is for you. Painting the entire walls of your dining room black can be a bit too much for some people, which is why we’ve brought you some stunning black dining room table designs that serve the purpose. 

With a black dining room table, you needn’t go all out with black and risk making your room look extremely dark. At the same time, you can still enjoy the elegance the colour brings to a space. So, here are some fantastic dining room ideas that use black to great effect and completely transform the space.

Achieve Complete Perfection With A Pitch-Black Dining Room Table Set

An all-black dining room table set coupled with an area rug can become your room’s focal point. A large pitch-black dining room table will easily grab all the attention in the room, so you can keep the rest of the decor to a minimum. When opting for a black dining room table, it’s best to go for neutral colours in your dining room’s palette. A modern silver chandelier adds the right amount of drama without overwhelming the space.

A Stunning Black Dining Room Table Set That Commands Attention

This dining room is the epitome of elegance and style. A large part of it is thanks to the modern black dining room table that’s paired with suede chairs in an enigmatic green-black. The dining table’s matte splayed legs and grey rug work well together. An accent wall in bottle green balanced with crisp white walls give this dining room a unique personality and make it look luxurious. A pair of foot lamps and some artwork complete the room to perfection.

Pair Your Black Dining Room Table Set With Some Dark Colours

You can incorporate black in your dining room without going all fancy, and this design shows you how. We have here a small and cosy dining area featuring a white cabinet that provides the perfect contrast against a dark blue wall. The glossy black dining room set goes well with the room’s colour scheme, adding to the ambience created by the two colours. It transforms the room into a chic and sophisticated space. The colourful pendant lights play their part in adding some fun and playfulness to the room.

Enhance A Minimalistic Dining Room With Dashes Of Black

If going all out with black (like having a black accent wall in your dining room) isn’t you, don’t worry. You can still use the colour in different elements of your dining room and make your space go from dull to attractive in an instant. This design features black dining room table chairs, which help differentiate the eating area from the rest of the space. The white and black pendant lights match well with the black and white look of the dining table set. The combination of wood, white and black is also a treat to the eyes.

Add Excitement To A White Space With Black Dining Room Table Chairs

White and greys are pleasant colours to use in dining rooms. And if your dining room features such neutral colour schemes, you can go for a bold and eye-catching element like black dining room table chairs to break the monotony. The elegant black dining room chairs provide a break from the room’s white palette and transform the space from simple-looking to modern and chic. The black dining room lights further add some drama and visual interest.

Make A Solid Black Dining Room Set The Focal Point

Black, brown and white look effortlessly good together, and this dining room design proves it. This room is simple on the whole — it’s painted white throughout and has some wooden furniture to go with it. But the black dining room table chairs add an element of interest and enhance its visual appeal manifold. They’re truly this room’s centre of attraction and even add a royal touch to it. The chandelier is also a fantastic addition but it’s difficult to take your eyes past the stunning dining chairs!

A Traditional Black Dining Room Table Set Is An All-Time Favourite

If you love antiques, then there’s nothing like a traditional and sturdy wooden black dining room table to add some personality to your dining area. Since a dining set like this will make your room feel full, you can go easy on the other decorative items. A recamier, antique wall art, light curtains and a small chandelier are enough to complete the look.

Create A Modern Space With Shades Of Black

Stunningly gorgeous, this design uses black to break the monotony of a grey-coloured dining room. We first used a dash of the shade to create a black accent wall in the dining room behind the TV unit. Then, we opted for the same colour in the chairs — and the result is a room that looks modern, visually pleasing and soothing. The grey and gold wall art merits appreciation too — it’s a small addition but does its bit in accentuating the room’s look.

Are you sold on using black in your dining room yet? Because these designs certainly impressed us and increased the appreciation for this colour in our eyes! As these designs demonstrate, adding some black in your dining room doesn’t always mean painting all the walls pitch-black and creating a dark, macabre room. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Just a simple black dining room table set can help you add the suaveness and classiness of this colour and make your dining room one of a kind.
