      Dining Room

      It’s the place you get together. Whether it’s Monday night dinner, a holiday gathering or a homework haven, your dining room can be a true reflection of personal taste – beyond the food on the table. Your dining room has some serious possibilities, and the right lighting can make it everything you want it to be.

      So here’s a myth buster: you actually don’t need a giant dining room, a tall ceiling and a huge table for a chandelier to make a statement. Have a long table? Try a linear chandelier. Want to make your silver sparkle? Go with LED lighting. Dining room lighting can make a lasting statement, long after the guests leave.

      To find the right size light to go over a dining table, add the length and width of the room in feet, and turn the sum into inches. That’s the minimum width, or diameter, of your lighting fixture. 2) Leave about 30-36 inches between the tabletop and the bottom of the fixture. 3) For smaller rooms, consider mini chandeliers with taller heights as well as taller wall sconces.

      Take a look at semi-flush fixtures and pendants. The great thing about pendants? They look better together – pendants are brilliant in clusters, especially when you stagger the height. Downlights and rail lights are also worth exploring.

      There are a few rules of thumb when it comes to choosing a ceiling fixture for your dining room. Sconces are leading men and ladies in disguise – so why not see how their performance can change up your dining space? Tall ones can make your small room seem larger. And a line of them on one wall can make a large room seem epic.
