10 Creative Ideas for Decorating a Large Dining Room Wall

Decorating a large dining room wall can be difficult, but it is also a chance to make a statement and add character to your space. Below are some ideas to get you started, whether you have a blank canvas or an existing wall that needs to be updated.

Install a gallery wall

This is a fantastic way to fill a large wall while also showing your personal style. To create a visually appealing display, mix and match frames and paintings of various sizes and shapes. Just make sure to hang the pieces at eye level and leave some space between each one.

Use wallpaper

Wallpaper is an ideal choice for adding texture and pattern to a large dining room wall. There are so many options available, ranging from bold, graphic patterns to subtle, textured designs. Just make sure that the wallpaper complements the rest of the room and that it is durable and washable if you entertain frequently.

Use Shelves

Shelves are not only functional, but they can also be used to decorate a large wall. You can display your favorite dishes, cookbooks, or other decorative items on them. For added interest, use shelves of varying sizes and shapes.

Use tapestries or woven wall hangings

These add a bohemian touch to any room and are an excellent way to fill a large wall. Choose a design that goes with the style of your dining room and hang it with rods or dowels.

Use Mirrors

Mirrors are an excellent way to add depth and light to a large dining room wall. Choose a mirror that makes a big statement or a group of smaller mirrors for a more eclectic look.

Use a mural or wall art

A large wall is ideal for a statement piece such as a mural or wall art. You can choose something abstract and modern, or you can go with something more traditional that complements the style of your dining room. Just make sure to hang it at the appropriate height and take into account the piece’s scale in relation to the size of the wall


Add a chalkboard or whiteboard

A chalkboard or whiteboard is a practical and fun way to add some personality to a large dining room wall. You can use it to write menu items, leave notes for your family, or just doodle. Just be sure to choose a durable, easy-to-clean option.

Use plates or platters

Using your favorite plates or platters to decorate a large wall can be a great way to add color and interest to your dining room. Plate hangers can be used to hang them, or decorative plate stands can be used to create a much more sculptural display.

Install a built-in

Consider installing a built-in if you have a large wall and would like to add some storage. This could be anything from a bookcase to a china cabinet to a bar. Choose a design that enhances the style of your dining room, and leave enough room for movement and walking.

Use lighting

Lighting is a great way to make a big wall in the dining room look more dramatic. To create a cozy, inviting ambiance, use sconces, pendants, or even string lights. Just make sure to choose fixtures that complement the style of your space and provide adequate lighting.

The key to decorating a large dining room wall, regardless of which option you choose, is to have fun and let your personal style shine. Mix and match different things to make a look that fits your tastes and makes you happy.
