The perfect way to make a dining room look elegant and stylish is with a chandelier. The right chandelier has the potential to greatly enhance the interior décor of the room and to give it a whole new look. But how do you choose the chandelier. Liking it is not enough.
Measure the room.
It’s important for a light fixture to not overwhelm a room so you first need to measure it before purchasing a chandelier for example. The floor to ceiling height is very important in this case. Between the table and the bottom of the chandelier there needs to be at least a 30” space. Also, the chandelier needs to be at least 12” smaller than the width of the dining table.
Choose a type.
There are lots of different types of chandeliers you can choose from and, depending on your preferences and the ambiance you’re trying to create, you can either get a traditional and heavy fixture that would make a great focal point or a delicate-looking piece that will blend in.
The lighting capacity.
The ideal chandelier for the dining room is the one that illuminates the entire room and not just a portion. So make sure you check this detail before purchasing the fixture. You should also install dimmer switches so you can adjust the brightness.
