Your dining room often plays host to family and friends, packed with great food and good conversations – and as the social hub of the home, it’s a great idea to celebrate this entertaining space with an adventurous and daring palette to inspire all that enter.

First the flooring, why not use your original floor boards instead of carpets and tiles? To achieve this finish, first sand down your floorboards, then lavish with Sadolin’s Extra Durable Floor Varnish. This will add a stylish touch to your room, leaving an easy to clean surface with a natural warmth.

And now selecting the paint for your walls – we would suggest a bold feature wall paint as they always look fantastic in dining rooms. Opt for a bright colour such as Cuban Heat® from our Feature Wall range and then contrast with our Pure Brilliant White matt emulsion to add impact and create a sophisticated modern look.

Once your room is painted, finish with colourful accessories which complement your palette, creating a sleek desirable look and an anything but dull entertaining space.

In the UK it’s estimated that 50 million litres of paint sold goes unused, which is enough to fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools! So, do you have leftover paint hiding in your garage? If you do, we‘ve got a simple way to put it to good use.

Use your leftover paint to create clever sectioning in a room. This will draw the eye in and add depth to rooms, giving them that extra touch of personality.

To recreate the look above, simply follow these steps;
• Place two strips of masking tape on your wall to mark the width of the stripe
• Paint between the pieces of tape using your leftover paint
• Once dry, peel off the tape and you will be left with a focal point that adds interest to interiors

This idea can be used to contrast light shades with dark, or equally dark over light. Why not experiment further with several stripes, varying in width for extra detail.
