Dining Room Paint Ideas With Chair Rail

Chair Rail as an Independent Accent Element Often chair rail is installed in conjunction with wainscoting, a type of paneling installed between the chair rail and the baseboard. Usually the trim, chair rail, and wainscoting are painted the same color, and the wall above the chair rail is painted another color. One option to provide more contrast and texture to the walls is to paint the chair rail in a color designed to sharply contrast with the wall, wainscoting and other trim, creating a distinct visual line around the room.

Always paint the walls first and the chair rail and other trim last. Protect the chair rail, baseboard and any other trim on the wall with painter’s tape before you begin rolling color on the walls. Cut in around the chair rail and other trim with a 2-inch, fine-bristled paintbrush. Allow the paint to fully dry before you remove the painter’s tape from the chair rail and trim. Use a razor knife to lightly score the edge between the painter’s tape and the new paint before you remove the tape. This prevents the new wall paint from lifting near the tape’s edge during removal.

Chair Rail as an Accent to a Uniform Wall Color One design option when painting a room with a chair rail is to paint the upper and lower portions of the wall the same color, and paint or stain the chair rail a different color. This option provides visual depth to a room, making it appear slightly larger than it actually is. Typically, when using this option the chair rail is painted to match the rest of the trim in a neutral or light color.

Chair Rail Separating Multiple Wall Colors Another design option is to paint the walls with different, but complementary colors above and below the chair rail. The chair rail separates the two colors of the room with a visual border, and the produced contrasting effect can be striking. It is best to paint the lighter or warmer color on the upper portion of the wall to create a more open feel to the room. The chair rail and other trim should be painted in a neutral or light complementary color.

Chair rail is a commonly used interior design element that adds depth, contrast, and texture to otherwise plain interior walls. Painting a room with chair rail is an opportunity to use your imagination by separating different colors on the same wall, or contrasting a uniform wall color. Chair rail may be painted or stained to match the existing door and window moldings, or as an accent by using a different color.

Chair rail. Moving up the wall from the floor, the next piece of trim after the base is the chair rail. Functionally, this trim item protects the wall finish from any furniture that gets placed against the wall. Though most commonly installed about 36 inches from the floor, a chair rail can be installed just about at any height.

I am getting ready to install picture frame molding below the chair rail in our dining room. I have been searching online for a dining room that looks similar to what I want, and you have it! It looks fabulous. I am curious about the paint finish you used on the moldings and the lower half of the room. Did you use a semi-gloss or a satin? Is it a bright white? And lastly, does this color match the trim you use for your entire first floor?

Time out while we talk about this chandelier. It’s another example of internet stalking: I saw it online, LOVED it, tried hard not to love it and find an acceptable replacement, failed, and bought it. I got a fantastic deal, but honestly? I’m taking this baby with me if/when I move. I don’t know what it is about it, but I hear angels sing when I look at it. It’s this chandelier, but as of this writing, this price is more than I paid. So here’s the dining room, with everything complete! I like a dark, cozy dining room, and this room could handle the dark paint because it gets lots of light from its two windows. I also like a dining room where you can sit for hours chatting long after the food is cold and dessert is gone, without squirming in uncomfy chairs. I snagged these chairs at HomeGoods.

A big pattern is often more dramatic than a smaller one. If you have the luxury of a separate dining room, consider covering all four walls, but a feature wall can also work well. If you’re tempted by a dramatic pattern but want a more restrained look, try breaking up the walls with a chair rail and paint the top part in a shimmering solid shade.

Hi Kelly, I love your dining room. It is beautiful and sophisticated. I am in midst of renovation our dining /living room. These two rooms are collected. I have selected a dark brown (HC-72) for the dining room. I am trying to pick a grayish blue for the living room. I tried our 5 samples but I am still not happy with any of them. Could you please let me what colour is your blue wall. In addition, I have installed dark Chocolate maple hardwood floor. Do you have any suggestion on the colour of area rug? Many thanks, Rita Rita

Professional-quality painting is labor intensive and a majority of the labor required is not spent applying paint to the walls. In fact, at least 70 percent of the labor is consumed in the preparation phase of any painting project. Clean the walls, trim and chair rail with warm water, a mild detergent and a soft cloth rag. This removes dust, dirt and accumulated oils from frying and cooking. Allow the washed areas to fully dry before proceeding. Use drop cloths to protect floors and nearby furniture from paint spatter.
