The main secret for a great dining room table decoration is the lighting. In most cases there’s a light just above your head in the middle of the table, which in most instances is so strong that it won’t allow you to relax and enjoy your food. This makes you feel like you’re being examined instead of being a dinning guest.
The table must be a place of relaxation for you and your family and friends. It must be comfortable and pleasant.
Whatever style you have inquired in your space, modern, minimal or traditional, you must think wise how to light the space around your dining table.
The Right Dim
If your dining table feels this way, the lighting is in the center and above the table, than you must configure the right dim of the light. It should be low enough to spread soft light, creating this way a more relaxing atmosphere.
Also it should be in the right distance of the table so the light won’t get in your eyes when you’re having a conversation.
In order to achieve a better result, you can use dimmable switches, which give you the ability to set the right dim amount.
Match your Style
If the furniture in the dining room or the room where your dining table is placed have a certain style than you will need to inquire the right chandelier.
Of course you can use a different type or style of lighting as long as it combines with other decoration mediums placed around the room. This way it will support that particular style variation.
If you’re like me you probably hate a central lighting source in the dining room. A great way to bypass this scheme is to light the space with desk lightings placed on top of a buffer in a row, on small coffee tables around the room, or even floor standing lightings in each corner of the room.
In the middle of the table, you can place a nice candle holder and light candles. This way you will create a comfortable, romantic, hospitable and warmer atmosphere around your table.
The Charm of Details
Whether your dining table is casual or more formal it should be dressed according to its style. A formal dining table can be emerged with a glamour chandelier, while in a more casual styled table a minimal hanging light or a small contemporary chandelier can fit ideally.
