The dining room is a space where you spend a lot of time connecting with friends and family. It should be a welcoming and energetic place, but it doesn't have to be boring. Wallpaper is a great way to add a punch of texture and visual interest and make your dining room feel purposeful and intentional. From graphic to floral to neutral, there is a wallpaper for every home decor enthusiast.
Whether you opt for a graphic modern choice, like this one from mydavidwillsonhome, or you're looking or something a little more traditional, here are some of our favorite looks.

In this dining room from mondaymondaycreative, a pink and green hand-painted wallpaper is placed on the ceiling and it totally transforms the space. This is a great idea if you want to make a statement in your dining area without taking away from the rest of the room.Continue to 4 of 11 below.

When opting for a bolder wallpaper, look for larger patterns (like this oversized floral one) to avoid the wallpaper from feeling too busy.Continue to 5 of 11 below.
