On-Trend Tips & Ideas For Dining Room Lighting
Your dining area is a place to share food and time with loved ones and new friends, so you want your lighting to hit the sweet spot and be practical, welcoming and stylish.
As with any room, dining rooms need a combination of lighting to create the right ambiance. When it comes to choosing a dining room pendant to bring your lighting story together, there are some things to keep in mind.
Think about your existing decor style and choose a pendant to match so you create a cohesive look and feel.
1. Tips For Choosing The Right Dining Table Lighting
Size matters. Break out your tape measure and determine the height and width of the area where your pendant will hang. An oversized pendant can work well to make a statement but should never be larger than the table area. On the other hand, an undersized pendant will look a bit underwhelming.
For an ultra-luxe, high-end feel, hang a cluster of lights or select a fitting with multiple arms and/or bulbs.
Choose low-wattage bulbs. Soft, warm light creates the kind of ambiance where magic happens and memories are made.
2. Lighting Trend: All eyes on gold
Gold is making a very glam comeback in 2020 in all styles of interiors. From gold, soft gold, champagne and brass. Bring the bling and take your lighting from functional to design feature.
3. Lighting Trend: swing arm sconces & wall mounted arc lamps
Form, meet function. Forgoing overhead pendants in favour of swing arm sconces and wall mounted arc lamps is emerging as a micro-trend in dining lighting right now. It’s a stylish, confident style statement that gives all the flexibility you need in the lighting department. Did we mention it’s apartment friendly too?
4. Lighting Trend: Organic and sustainable
Organic style décor continues to reign supreme, and overhead pendants crafted from natural materials are a timeless addition to any dining space.
