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.
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.
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.
