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.
Place plinth lighting low on a sideboard or in storage areas that are placed near the dining area. Place it at the bottom area. This can give more ambience to the room as it directs light towards the floor. This can be an opportunity for your flooring to be noticed. You can also place candles in your dining room. You can even let it stand in a candelabrum which can be an added accessory to the room. Using candles can add ambience for a romantic dinner and for other purposes. But, you don't have to use it every day. Use it on special occasions. When not in use, it can still be a good accessory.
You have an option on choosing focal points for your dining room. Your back yard can be a good focal point and you can do this by leaving your window bare without coverings. This way, you can easily see the backyard and you can also allow entry of natural light and air. Another option is by creating a great interior design and architecture. You can place window coverings by using grass shades or natural bamboo. But you can combine silk with that, too.
