Your dining area can use a chandelier for focal point. Place it in the center of the room for it defines the space. But make sure to choose the right chandelier for your room. Choose a chandelier with a diameter 12″ less than width of the table and its bottom should be 30″ above the table. The dining area is one of the places for gathering. You can use a dimmer switch in order to create a different ambience for various purposes in using the area. If you have an intimate dinner party, you can dim the lights. If your kids are working on the table, then you can give the area great amount of light.
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.
