The primary focus of dining room lighting is the table. Set the mood for family dinners, or give your guests something to talk about with fine selection of quality dining room lights. Choose from elegant chandeliers, including crystal chandeliers with different designs, pendant lights, or go with something a little simpler with mini-pendants or recessed lighting to create that perfect overhead glow. Fixtures placed directly above the table may provide both ambient and task lighting for this room. You can also enhance your entire dining room with wall sconces, torcher’s lamps, and floor lamps, which can easily be placed anywhere. Buffet lamps are also can illuminate your buffet table for enhanced function and style. Track and rail lighting offer your even greater customization. Dimmers are particularly desirable as they provide flexibility in establishing a relaxing atmosphere. A traditional lighting plan for a dining room consists of a chandelier above the table, plus a pair of wall sconces flanking a prominent breakfront or sideboard, with all lighting on a dimmer. An upgraded lighting plan might include cove lighting on two opposing walls and a dimmable chandelier over the table. You also have the choice of most any interior design theme, from old world and traditional to modern or retro.
If dining room has French doors very important consideration is to lighting something outside the doors so that people using the dining room at night will have a focal point beyond their reflection in the glass doors. You can light one element in outdoor space so you will have no problem with glass reflection in room at night.
Also you need to consider about wall treatment when lighting a dining room because dining rooms often have decorative paint treatments or wallpapers. If walls have darker color paint they will reflect less light, so more lumens may be required in the room’s light fixtures.
