Make sure that everything in your dining area has balance and harmony. You can use your old furniture if you want but if you think it doesn't complement with the entire design, then you can buy a new one. Your aim is to really make your dining area appealing, comfortable and distinct. Everything in the place should work well together. The choice of color, accesories, lighting and other aspects should look good as a whole.
Most kitchens use a chandelier or an overhead light. This is a good focal point for your design. You may also use light with dimmers so that you can set the mood in your dining area. You can also use wall scones and pin lights if you want to. Others prefer to use some decor overhead the dining table. This is also good.
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.
