Why You'll Love Contemporary Dining Room Design

Many of the decisions around dining room décor will be predicated on the spaciousness of room. Dining rooms can extend from a dedicated room to an extension of, say, the living room or kitchen. Once you’ve crossed the often vexing round vs. rectangle dining room table debate (and accompanying chairs conversation), it’s on to dining room lighting.

Overhead lighting will likely be centered over the table, and there are innumerable suspension directions in which one could go to appropriately illuminate the space. Chandeliers, pendant lighting and linear suspension are some of the more popular options, but if you have a low ceiling, definitely take a good long look at semi-flush ceiling lights. Whichever you choose, put a dimmer on it, as dining can range from an intimate dinner with a loved one to an epic celebration with friends.

Dining Room Looks We Love

We like to reflect the shape of the dining table in the silhouette of the lighting fixture. Linear suspension is an obvious choice of dining room lighting when it comes to rectangular tables. Or, if you prefer, a straight lined installation of multiple pendants. For circular configurations, pendants (solo or clustered) or chandeliers, headroom permitted.

Should you wish to supplement, wall sconces are an excellent ambient lighting option for dining room. If a ceiling fan is needed in the dining room space, a ceiling fan with light will be your best bet. Also, a slender and sexy console lamp always presents a striking juxtaposition when placed on a long and low-slung buffet.

Finishing Touches for Dining Rooms

Consider deconstructing the entire notion of the dining room “set.” Procure a big vintage table fashioned from rustic, reclaimed wood and surround it with an arrangement of contemporary, mismatched dining room chairs.
