Dining Room Lighting Fixtures
If the chandelier or pendant is not enough, add table lamps or buffet lamps to the dining room. This helps to control the dining room lighting, adds ambiance, and gives a humanizing touch to the room.
Chandeliers and pendants bring a sense of elegance and can act as a focal point. Track lighting directed toward artwork can bounce off light wall colors and illuminate the space evenly while reducing glare. Recessed lighting and natural dining room light provide the perfect back-drop to accent your chandeliers.
Wall sconces complement the main hanging light fixture and brighten up dark corners to balance the room’s light. Cabinets that hold prized China or crystals can become a focal point, which should be illuminated and highlighted with under cabinet lighting in the dining room.
About Dining Room
Dining room lighting generally includes a chandelier, but not all the time. Track lighting, sconces, and flush mount lighting can also illuminate a dining room. But it’s important to do more than light up the room! Guests want to feel comfortable when they’re dining and being social. Creating layers of light by combining accent and general lighting is key in the dining room. Having a variety of light sources allow you to avoid glare and change the mood. A dimming system also adds to the overall design and feel of the room.
