As same as other room, designing light fixtures for dining room is also an important activity. Although people usually do it as finishing move, lighting is a necessary thing for our dining room. It cannot be ignored because we will use it on the night, right? Usually, we will invite our guest in the holiday and of course we need lighting to make our dinner becomes memorable for them. Once we have good light fixtures inside the dining room, your home becomes enjoyable and functioned very well. Based on some experts’ tips and ideas, I collected some ways to design our dining room’s lighting.
Important things of light fixtures on our dining room
Our light fixture for dining room have some criteria which very important to be considered by homeowners. First of all, the light fixture should be the focal point of your dining room. It means that you need to consider the placement of the furniture. When you have small dining room, I prefer you to use minimalize furniture or at least less furniture. In this case, the light fixtures are untouchable from anyone below them. So, you need to invest the best kind of light for this room. Moreover, the sparkle of the light will create the mood of your dining room itself.
Gap between light for dining room and the ceiling
The next step of designing light fixtures for dining room is the gap with the ceiling. Based on some experts, I conclude that the best gap between your light fixtures on the dining table and the ceiling is around 36 inches. Why we should maintain the gap because it will give bad impact especially for the illumination of the lights if we do not care about it after all. If you have larger dining room, the best gap should be more than 40 inches. Actually, it really depends on the size of the dining room after all.
Preferable bulbs of light fixtures for dining room
Last but not least in designing light fixtures for dining room are the correct bulbs. The preferable bulbs are the decorative fixtures. As long as you have already the main light on the ceiling, the dimmer bulbs are very effective to manage your mood.
You can adjust the dim obviously because they will be located on the rectangular dining table. What about the watts? It once again depends on the size of your dining room. For normal size, I prefer sixty watt of bulbs. Meanwhile, the large one is around 75 watt.
