How to Install Dining Room Lighting

When hanging a pendant or a chandelier .

. .
Take Care to Hang It at the Correct Height
Too high and a pendant lamp might glance stuck to the ceiling, constricted; too low and you won't be capable to see your guests around it. Somewhere in between is just correct, so step back and consider it at various lengths before settling on one. "When you’re seated, you don’t desire [the fixture] to be in your face—the same way everyone gets annoyed when flowers are in the way," Groves says.

If you're into geometric lines . . .
Get Creative with the Cord
When hanging a pendant lamp with a extremely simple silhouette, feel free to get creative with the cord: Zig-zag it from wall to wall around a corner, tack it in swags along the ceiling, or loop it over a hook on the wall.

To soften overly bright overheads .

. .
Add a Dimmer
Designer Sam Allen feels strongly about the worth of a dimmer switch: "If your dining room chandelier is not hooked up to a dimmer, call an electrician correct now. I mean it. Don't even finish reading this—call your electrician first." With the simple pressing of a lever or turning of a knob, dimmers permit you to control the brightness of the bulbs, which is particularly significant if you're dealing with often-harsh overhead lighting.

"To me, chandeliers should mimic candlelight," says Groves—and that warm, dim glow is possible if you just install dimmers. Plus, they're available in both modern and traditional silhouettes that will add considerably more charm to the walls than those plastic switch plates you hate anyway.

To make the room multifunctional . . .
Supplement the Lighting Solution You Choose
If you finish up with nice, warm candlelight over the table, you might need to add sconces or downlights to supplement the glow when the room is used for anything other than an intimate dinner.

If you're a fanatic about light quality . . .
Be Selective with the Bulbs You Use
Warm light, cool light, bright light—you can get exactly the brightness level you desire with the correct bulb. For lots of ambiance, attempt vintage-inspired filament bulbs. If it's more a specific shape and style you're after for an exposed-bulb fixture, attempt decorative bulbs.
