Lighting 101 FAQs

Dining Room Lighting

When selecting your focal piece, it is crucial to choose the appropriate size to avoid making your room appear smaller or causing inconvenience for taller guests. To ensure everyone’s comfort at your table, here are a few sizing guidelines to follow.

  • The base of your light should sit 26-30 inches above the table.
  • When you add the length and width of your dining room in feet, the sum will equal the average diameter (in inches) that your fixture should be.
  • In general, your light should be between ⅓ and ⅔ the size of your table, so a bigger table makes space for a slightly larger fixture.

When it comes to selecting a statement piece for your dining room, the choice depends on your space and personal style. In general, you have the option to go for a chandelier, a cluster of pendants, or a ceiling light, depending on the characteristics of your room.
