Chandeliers in a modern dining room

A luxurious chandelier is the ultimate lighting fixture that can appear in a dining room or living room. Modern chandeliers in the dining room bring out the personality of the room while providing ambient lighting. Chandeliers suggest traditional familiarity and warmth, but in contemporary times, the large selection of chandeliers creates an elegant look for space that connects the room.

Chandelier above the dining table

The main element of a dining room is proper lighting. Whether it is a classic pendant or a modern chandelier hanging above the dining table, it will provide the perfect lighting required. Chandeliers work best in any room such as living room, entrances or bedrooms, but one placed above the dining table looks great by providing lighting and creating a relaxed or romantic atmosphere and environment. A modern chandelier can be the centerpiece of a dining room whether it is for a casual family dinner or for an intimate dinner party.

The right size of chandelier for the dining room

Although a chandelier provides ambient lighting for the dining room, the size should be large enough to keep the entire table light. You can measure the length and width of the dining room on foot. Add the two digits and take the sum of the two digits in inches and use it as a diameter for the chandelier. Another way is that the size of the chandelier should be in accordance with the size of the dining table. It should be half to three quarters of the width of the table. The height of the chandelier should be placed in such a way that the chandelier should be about 30-32 inches above the table.

Stylish contemporary chandeliers

Contemporary chandeliers are often made on clean lines. Crystal chandeliers give a feeling of luxury while LED chandeliers give a feeling of energy efficiency. A floral chandelier complements the polished wooden table and ghost chairs. You can enhance the chandelier over the table by installing dimmers to enhance the atmosphere at the dining table. A glittering crystal chandelier can be coordinated with wall scones to throw a perfect light through the dining room. Crystal chandeliers often come with a chrome finish with chains that fit the decor over the dining table and give it a touch of class. Wrought iron chandeliers in a bronze or copper finish with light bulbs give the dining room an antique look. Another elegant design is swirling metal straps and sliding lights.
