Rustic Dining Room Design Ideas

A dining room is a space that may seem simple in function and design, but it is a very important part of the home. It’s a space where meals are shared, conversations are had and maybe even a day of work is completed! We think there is something so comforting about gathering around a rustic dining table, in a space that is oh so cozy and stylish. Rustic dining room design is undoubtedly welcoming and a great style for many people and dwellings.  When you think of rustic dining room design and what that may look like, it could be a few things. Perhaps a rustic dining space would consist of a big and hearty wooden dining table, or a stunning natural fiber area rug, or even artwork that is directly inspired by nature. All of that would be correct! Rustic interior design is all about enhancing the natural beauty of materials found in nature, like wood, stone, cotton, etc. The color palettes are soft, with earth tones dominating the style, but neutrals, both dark and light, are welcome as well. How would a rustic dining room design be put together? The first thing would be to establish what level of rustic design you want. When looking at rustic dining room design ideas, you will see styles that have a bit more of a farmhouse flair, or the opposite, a modern rustic feel. That is the beauty of rustic design, it can be used in its pure design style or incorporated in so many other styles! Given the nature of rustic design, it makes it a very durable style. This means it’s ever popular in households with kids or pets! Nothing makes parents more happy than a dining room that won’t be destroyed by sticky fingers and crumbs. Whether you need help with your rustic dining room layout or just gathering rustic dining room design inspiration, we have ideas for you! With different sized spaces, needs, color palettes and budgets, we hope you find some images to inspire you in our Design Ideas gallery!

Equestrian motifs such as the horse wall-art in this room are a common (and delightful) element in southwestern decor. The designer played up the pony vibes with a hide rug (no horseys were hurt) and faux fur stool, which reflect the playful dignity of our four-hoofed friends.

It can be hard to make an open living-dining space feel formal. Often the layouts are so open and airy they lend themselves to a more casual vibe, which is fine, but what if casual isn't your thing? This dining area manages to feel formal thanks to two things: #1 dining takes place by the fireplace, which adds grandeur to each meal, and #2 a statement-making table draws you in and makes each meal feel like an event to remember.
