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.
Attaining a contemporary look for your dining room requires your creativity. After all, it is still you who will decide as to what furniture and colors to use. But it doesn't necessarily mean that you will need to buy new furniture. It once again relies on how you will use your initiative to attain a contemporary dining room.
You can also use pendant lights in the dining area. Hang them low to allow the shades to take center stage. Choose a pendant light that fits your dining area decor. This can greatly add appeal to your area aside from the light it omits. But when you hang it, make sure that you do not hang it so low that it touches the head of those dining.
