If you want to give focus on wall art objects and other displays, you can make use of recessed or track lighting. These kinds of lights can beam lights into those areas you want to highlight. It can even give a pleasing effect to the area. If you think the light from your chandelier is not enough, then you might as well add portable lamps. This way, you can add more light and ambience to your area. This can also be an added decoration to your dining area. It can also be used when you are studying in the area.
Most of the time, neutral colors are used for a contemporary design. You can use this for your dining room, too. But it would be better to use a basic color palette so that your look will remain cool even if new trends will come. Paint your walls with bright white, soft gray or medium taupe. You may also use bold chocolate brown or black for your dining room for a bold appearance. For your accessories, choose colors that will be a good accent like green, red or bright orange. Red and orange are said to be appetizing colors.
Instead of trying to light your dining area by using only a single source of light, illuminate it using various sources. Having different types of lights in your dining area can also serve as additional decors to your dining area. Also, when you have a single chandelier or overhead lighting as a source of light, it could be too bright making it uncomfortable. So, avoid creating a glare by using multiple layers of light.
