Why not spruce up the area in a way that will encourage a little extra inspiration? Who knows? You might benefit from the uplift in color yourself!
How to Mix Rainbow Dining Chairs
One thing we like about going multi-colored is that your dining chairs absolutely do not have to match. Simply keep your rainbow dining chairs in the same hue and material. Choose any color you like, but make sure they all have the same level of intensity. The shape of the back is also not as important as the material used. Stick with all wood, all plastic, or all metal. You can mismatch materials on the host chair at the long ends, if you wish.
Feeling a little gun shy? Try adding rainbow dining chairs to a little bistro set outside. Take a look at some of our fun patio decor ideas and expand your living space.

Add bright works of art and fresh flowers so that the room stays lively. Kitchens and dining rooms should be the most social areas of your home, so encourage conversation.

Have Fun With Paint
Color like this is also perfect for the Creativity + Children center of your home. Be sure to check out our Feng Shui guide for a simple map to this area. Multi-colored paint is also a fun way to dress up vintage chairs or get creative with neutral woods. One of our favorite ideas is to mix up how you paint rainbow dining chairs seats and legs. If you have chairs all the same style and wood type, try painting the legs only and see what you think. Or, do the reverse, and let the legs stay bare. It’s fun to create little optical illusions with dining room seating and the possibilities are endless.
Tone it Down With Industrial
Mix-and-match dining sets with a multi-colored effect doesn’t have to be kindergarten style. You can definitely keep your rainbow dining chairs at least 2nd grade by using muted color tones. This is a nice look that the guys in the house will go for, too. If you’re doing the industrial thing, you can mix materials as long as you stagger the seating.
