Choosing the right lighting for your dining room is essential to create a warm and friendly atmosphere. Here are some tips for choosing the right light for a dining room:
How to choose the size of the luminaire for a dining room?
The choice of the size of the luminaire depends on the size of your table and the height of your ceiling. For a small-sized table, a medium-sized fixture is sufficient. For a large table, a larger fixture can be chosen. Ceiling height should also be considered, as a low ceiling requires a smaller sized fixture to avoid crowding the room. In general, the size of your light should not exceed the size of your table. For a ceiling height of less than 2.5m, it is advisable to opt for spotlights or a ceiling light.
Choose a light that matches your decoration
The style of the luminaire must be in keeping with the decoration of the dining room. Light fixtures in steel, glass and wood, for example, are ideal for a contemporary decoration, while crystal or brass fixtures are suitable for a more vintage and Haussmann-style decoration. Wood and fabric light fixtures can be used for Scandinavian and Japandi decor.
Make the right choice of color temperature and lighting power
The power of the lighting must be sufficient to illuminate the table and the guests. It is recommended to opt for a warm or natural light in order to confer a soft and subdued atmosphere. Cold light is to be avoided in a dining room, it is not pleasant and will not bring a friendly atmosphere to your room. It is also possible to install a dimmer to adjust the power of the lighting according to the desired atmosphere.
How to correctly determine the position of the luminaire?
The light should be placed in the center of the table to illuminate all the guests. It should not be placed too high or too low, but at a height that allows the table to be illuminated without dazzling the guests. If the table is rectangular in shape, then it is advisable to opt for a longitudinal fixture. If your table is round, a circular light will be perfect.
