Before you can appropriately redecorate your dining room, you’ll need to determine the functionality you need out of a light fixture. If it’s to cover the dining table, look to chandeliers and pendants. Have a need for ambient washes of light? Consider a few wall lights spread throughout the space. Once you can decide where you need lighting in the room, you’ll then need to measure the space to determine the sizes of lights you will need. If you are placing a chandelier or large pendant in the room, be mindful of dimensions like height, diameter and weight. With size and purpose in mind, you can then refine your options by colors, finishes and other important design features that can blend in with your dining room’s existing decor. Lastly, review the fixture’s lumen chart to identify just how bright it will be.

For a look that’s pleasing to the eye, the basic guideline works well: the main dining room light should share a similar shape with the dining table itself. Easy enough, right? But, after that simple rule of thumb, the sky’s the limit. Ceiling lights with distinctive drum shades are an easy way to add some texture or color to the space, as well as creating a strong focal point. You’ll find many drum-shaped pendants and close-to-ceiling lights to choose from. Neutral spaces can benefit from lighting fixtures featuring brighter colors and bolder patterns, and vise-versa. Going in the opposite direction, the jaunty look of a branching linear suspension brings a dynamic look to a dining space and appropriately fits the elongated shape of a rectangular table. A pair of sconces throughout the room creates a well-rounded look and if you have a console or buffet table in the space, consider accenting it with a lamp.

Sara Story: A dining room needs to have atmosphere and the perfect fixture and light output help achieve this goal. The light should sparkle and flatter. Usually a dining room is a smaller space with less going on than, say, a living room—fewer furnishings, often just a dining table and chairs. So a light fixture can be a central feature, like a beautiful piece of jewelry that’s also functional. A table has to be durable, chairs have to be comfortable, but a light fixture can be more adventurous because no one’s touching it, no one’s spilling food on it. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a sculptural element that creates a mood.
