A grey dining room is a strong theme that oozes sophistication, unquestionable confidence, and a serious sense of style. Lack of colour does not equate lack of impact, as these 51 superb grey dining room designs illustrate. We walk you from decorative neoclassical to raw industrial, plus a myriad of grey dining tables and chair ideas along the way. We’ll also see how grey dining rooms don’t have to be a one hit wonder on the colour front, by exploring how grey works with brighter accents like orange, mossy green, and a flash of red. Crisp white and subtle natural tones sing off a grey canvas too, with light wood accents coming up trumps against a smoky backdrop.

Wood cladding returns to its natural tone here, where it marks a border between the dining room and lounge, and creates a canopy over the table. Orange accents juice things up. | Visualizer: Anjey Babych.
… Even a tonal change in chair upholstery is enough to chase away any chance of mundanity. A cluster of unusual decorative vases has been added here for a pinch of extra character–though that rich wood ceiling and impressive pendant light already had us won over. | Visualizer: IQOSA.
… Unless you are staging a dining area in the centre of a blessedly window rich room–in which case go right ahead and drape luxurious fabric in deep dramatic folds to span between each reveal. | Visualizer: LVI Studio.
Establish a visual link between a table centrepiece and lighting for a cunningly cohesive design. The spherical nature of these globe pendant lights is subtly echoed in a small orb-like vase on the table, each with a reflective white finish. | Visualizer: ArtPartner Architects.
Interrupt a plain grey wall with a moment of unexpected colour. A basic paint wash drops a calming blue and green scene behind this dining area. Indoor plants play along with the fresh colour infusion. | Visualizer: Dekaa.
Straddling space. Accomodate a dining area in a narrow living room by implementing it along the border between kitchen and lounge. The table will smooth out a harsh meeting of different floor treatments. Employ a substantial pendant light design to establish its midpoint position. | Visualizer: Dekaa.
On the flip side, if it’s more attention that your dining space requires, then go ahead and double up on those decorative pendant lights. These textured grey dining chairs also pack extra punch. | Visualizer: Vladyslava Torhonska.
Keep it simple. To keep a dining area low key in an open plan setting, choose a linear suspension light to pour light along the entire length of the table without drawing too much attention. | Visualizer: Valentyn Kovalskyi.
Revel in the natural light that comes into the room. When large windows light up your dining room, invest in a crystal or glass modern chandelier that will look just as beautiful reflecting sunlight as it does when powered. | Photographer: Sergey Krasyuk.
Create areas of movement. A laid back dining room scheme can be given a bolt of energy by bringing in just a couple of key pieces. In this room, a busily patterned geometric rug adds bustle to the floor, whilst tendril-like wires of AIM pendant lights swoop above. | Visualizer: Katie Domracheva.
Serious storage space can go amiss in a dining room plan. Make use of the empty wall space around the outskirts by bringing in a tall cabinet, shelving unit, or combination of the two. | Visualizer: Cartelle Design.
Create an impressively lengthy kitchen island with a fully integrated dining table design. This kitchen island slots right into a custom cut in the dining tabletop, so that it becomes trickier to visually separate the two parts. | Visualizer: RB Architects.
Fill it with frames. A black geometric frame forms the base of this modern dining table, which links it with the slender base of the coffee table nearby, and with the black window frames. Circular pendant lights complement the curvaceous Muuto Cover chairs. | Visualizer: Stephen Tsimbalyuk.
The copper craze is set to continue, so why not bring this warm metallic into your grey dining area too? Link copper kitchens with grey dining areas, or invigorate grey dining rooms with copper framed chairs to embody this dynamic colour duo. | Visualizer: Cartelle Design.
The lighter colours of this dining table extension really give it its own identity despite being amalgamated with the kitchen island. Statement lighting above it further strengthens its individuality. | Designer: One Work Design.
Combine the cooking and dining experience by eliminating the space between a kitchen island and dining table–whether you are pushed for square footage or swimming in it, closing the gap brings about a more intimate layout. | Visualizer: Evgenii Baisa & Olga Kolesnikova.
Natural furniture melds marvellously with a crisp modern grey scheme. Cane dining chairs soften the line of an ultra-contemporary dining kitchen in this naturally accented home. Black accessories keep the combination looking sharp. | Visualizer: Tomek Michalski.
This design keeps wood grain down on the floor of the dining room, which subtly accentuates a smooth grey dining set. A narrow stripe of colour-changing LED lighting also draws eyes to the floor. | Visualizer: Z. Design.
Turn up the temperature with woodtone. When choosing dining furniture for a cool grey room, opting for a natural wood dining set can really help warm up the look. In this example, white chairs have been teamed with a wood table and dining benches, to tie the set in with the kitchen’s white backsplash behind. | Visualizer: Z. Design.
Enliven a grey scene with green accents. A green dining set creates a mossy bed beneath a minimalistic modern chandelier here. A large indoor plant echoes the accent colour. | Visualizer: Olga Paliychuk.
Accentuate with mood lighting. There is an easy remedy for a grey dining room design that falls flat: Light it up. Add underlighting to wall cabinets and bathe dark corners in the spotlight. Finish off with an impressive chandelier over the table and the job is done. | Visualizer: Z. Design.
Tip the balance with tone. This grey dining table and chairs set is brought to the forefront in a darker shade of grey than the lighter grey kitchen behind. The different shading creates a subtle layered effect without veering away from the grey on grey aesthetic. | Visualizer: Olga Paliychuk.
Set a dark grey dining room scheme alight with magnificent lighting, like this eye-catching blazing ring pendant. Also note the flames flickering in the centre of the enchanting upside-down table design. How’s that for drama at dinner? | Visualizer: Stephen Tsimbalyuk.
Deep teal is a rich companion for dark grey walls. This interior uses colour to define zones in an open plan living room, with teal elements differentiating the lounge from a grey industrial style dining room. | Visualizer: Olga Paliychuk.
Build an industrial style grey backdrop. Raw grey brickwork makes a strong statement behind a slick modern dining set and sputnik chandelier. See more grey modern industrial interiors. | Visualizer: Doğukan Taş.
