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.
Setting up a contemporary look for your dining area oozes out a homey feel making it a good place to extend the bonding activity with the family members. Selecting the fixtures and accents you want to put into your room greatly contributes to make the interior an adorable place to dine in. The large lighting fixture hanging at the top of the dining table gives elegance to the picture.
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.
