The evening meal is often the only time of day when the whole family are together. Cheery lighting in the dining room is therefore a must, because the dinner table is so much more than a place where you eat. It's also a place to study, work, be creative, play games, etc. So it’s not only important that the lighting in the dining room makes you feel at home, it should also be functional. You’ll find the right lamps below.Show more
Because the dining room is such a multifunctional area, it’s very important that the basic lighting is good. Recessed spotlights or surface-mounted spotlights, nicely distributed across the entire ceiling, ensure that the room is evenly lit. No dark corners where crumbs or other food particles can remain unseen on the floor.
You can actually use just about any pendant lamp above the dining table. It’s best to keep the shape of the table in mind, though. You can best show off an elongated or oval table by hanging an elongated fitting above it, while a rounded pendant lamp design, such as a dome or chandelier, is better suited for a round table.
Do you prefer something sleek, but recessed spotlights are not an option? Then you could opt for a ceiling lamp. They stand out less than pendant lamps, and you can find ceiling lights to match any table shape.
Wall lamps in the dining room can have various functions. Up/down lighters give your dining room a classy look, and designer wall lamps can be a great eye-catcher. You can also use wall lamps as accent lighting, for example, above a painting.
