How to Set Sculptural Lighting in Your Dining Room

Step 1 Check Your Dining Room

To start with, you should first check out how your dining room looks right now. This means to review your dining room with a pen and paper, note down some basic but important points of your dining room. For example, how big your dining table is? Do you have a big room or a small space to lighten? What kind of style your dining room is? You wish to hang lights for your dining room in which kind of style? Recording all the details about your dining room and your expectation helps to know which direction we should go next.

Step 2 Let a Sculptural Light State Your Personality

No matter which style of dining room you have, setting sculptural lighting over your dining table can immediately upgrade your room. Once you get to know all the details about your dining room, you can easily get closer to your ideal design by picking up a centerpiece to sate your own style. For example, if you prefer modern chandeliers for dining room, then hang a character CRYSTAL CIRCULAR CHANDELIER to catch more attention which can add countless chicness and dynamic vibe into your dining room. Or you’re so much into farmhouse style, which utilizes natural color palette and simple design, then just try to set a LINEAR WOOD CHANDELIER above your curated table to create a wonderful rustic dining room look. In LNC HOME, we encourage you to follow your own taste by crafting beautifully designed lighting fixtures with different styles.

Step 3: Your Dining Table Matters

The best dining room lighting fixtures are always the perfect combination of functionality and aesthetics. Therefore, besides hanging a lighting fixture in line with your style, another important question to consider is how to choose a lighting piece based on the size and shape of your dining table to let you finish a stunning project.

 Generally, we consider two dimensions when it comes to the dining table — the shape and the size. As the lighting for a round dining table, setting a group of bowl-shaped pendants to complement your dining table is an ideal option; as for square or rectangular dining table lighting, a linear or box chandelier often works best to create an exactly good mood in your gorgeous dining room. If you have a large and long dining table, you can install two chandeliers over the dining table or a group of pendant lights with various heights to build a unique as well as high-class look. While, for small dining room lighting, it’s better to hang an oversize chandelier to grab more attention in your stylish house. Finally, make sure the light height above dining table is the same level as your eyes or a little bit higher to ensure these gorgeous lighting fixtures function perfectly.

Step 4 Shop within Your Budget

As we said at the beginning of this guide, your dining room lighting project will be the most rewarding program. Since it’s a small but worthwhile project, we expect you can get the best return with a limited investment as much as possible. So don’t forget to control your budget before you make a final purchase decision. However, if you’re still struggling with the price, then try to consider our beautifully designed as well as affordable Dining Room Lights. As your lighting expert, LNC HOME are happy to provide you with perfect lighting solutions to allow you to build a more charming and stylish dining room.
