Dining Room Lighting

Dining room lighting should be both beautiful and functional, and this is best accomplished by using a combination of task, ambient, and accent lighting throughout the space. These various layers of lighting establish the mood for a variety of functions, including dining, homework, or family bookkeeping. At Accent Lighting in Wichita, we have a fantastic variety of dining room light fixtures, and can help you choose the best options for your home.

A chandelier can be a great choice for the central, ambient light fixture. We’ll recommend the style and size that will best suit your dining room, and discuss whether or not it’s a good option. By adding dimming controls, you’ll be able to adjust the lights for various occasions, such as dinner parties, family reunions, or homework time with the kids. Recessed lights can be ideal as accent fixtures, highlighting a curio or china cabinet in the room. Track lighting that accentuates artwork is also good for the space. Since there aren’t usually separate seating areas in the dining room, there might not be any need for lamps or other task lighting, but we’ll discuss every possibility when you’re in our showroom.

Types of Dining Room Lighting

When it comes to dining room lighting, there are several types of fixtures to consider.

Chandeliers are a popular choice for dining rooms, providing a focal point and ambient lighting for the entire space. Pendant lights can be used over the dining table to provide task lighting and enhance the aesthetic appeal of the room. Wall sconces and buffet lamps are excellent options for adding accent lighting and creating a cozy atmosphere.

Dining Room Lighting Design

Dining room lighting design plays a crucial role in setting the ambiance for meals and gatherings.
