Types of Dining Room Lights

Many formal dining rooms don’t get the attention or traffic they deserve. Over the past few decades, families have shifted toward eating right in the kitchen or in front of the living room television. But if you are still committed to using your dining room for family meals or holiday gatherings, consider refreshing the lighting.

Here are four ways to make over your dining room lighting.

1. Chandelier

Dining Room Chandelier Lighting.If you’re looking for ways to make your ho-hum dining room more visually exciting, what better place for a chandelier than above the dining room table? A chandelier provides light, class, and sophistication. Because it hangs directly over the dining room table, a chandelier will work no matter how low the ceiling is. Just make sure you choose one that isn’t too large – you don’t want it to overwhelm the table or the room. And remember, the best light bulbs for dining room chandeliers are dimmable.

2. Pendant Light

Dining Room Pendant Lighting.Not much of a chandelier fan? You’re not alone – some people find chandeliers to be too old-fashioned for their taste. Instead, picture a large, stylish pendant light over the dining room table. Or, if the dining room table is very long, consider installing two pendants, one near each end. There are many modern pendant styles that will enhance a dining room and help set the mood for romantic dinners or supper parties with friends.

Buffet Lamps

Any tall, candlestick-shaped lamp is technically a buffet lamp. While buffet lamps can work well in many areas of a home, they are especially well-suited for illuminating a side table in a dining room (or a buffet). If the buffet is long and narrow, consider putting matching buffet lamps at either end. This will provide balance and symmetry, and ensure that the entire length of the table is illuminated.

Wall Sconce

Dining Room Wall Sconce Lighting.Are there dark areas of the dining room that need extra illumination? Wall sconces can provide ample accent lighting for dim corners. Coordinate wall sconce styles with the focal light hanging above the dining table. Choose dimmable light bulbs to ensure that illumination is always under control and never overpowering.
