Advice and tips for Lighting the Dining Room
|A Dining room light serves many functions. This chandelier or pendant sets the style for the home, creates mood and ambiance and provides task lighting for activities at the table.|
What size should my dining room light be?
A dining room light can be sized based on the room dimension or based on the table size.
Chandelier by room size:
Measure the length and width of the room or dining area and add those figures together. The sum converted to inches will equal the right sized chandelier.
For example: 12' + 16' = 28'
28' when converted to inches = 28" diameter chandelier.
Chandelier by table size:
Measure the smaller dimension of the table. Take this width and deduct 12". This is the diameter of the chandelier appropriate for the table.
For example: Table 72" x 36"
36"-12" = 24" diameter chandelier
The bottom of the chandelier should sit 30-36 inches above the table top.
Tip: Most lighting fixtures specify a height of the fixture alone. You still need to add the height of the canopy and a minimum amount of chain.
To Dim or not to Dim?
A dimmer is essential in a dining room. It sets the mood for the meal. Bright and cheery on a drab day. Soft and intimate for dinner for two. The ability to adjust the lighting level increases the functionality of the room. When selecting new LED bulb versions for re-lamping your fixture, beware of the compatibility of dimmers with the LED you purchase.
