The dining room is the place in the home where the whole family can come together. The lighting should be calm and inviting to create a relaxed atmosphere. Often doubling as a place for the kids to do their homework, good task lighting such as overhead pendant lights are essential. 

Ambient Light Layer

Position downlights around the perimeter of the room. Suspend ceiling-mounted lights such as pendants and chandeliers centrally to provide adequate light for meals and a makeshift workspace.

Task Light Layer

Overhead pendant lights can not only light the space adequately while maintaning a relaxing ambiance, but also create a clearly defined space for the dining area in open plan layouts.

Accent Light Layer

Create the ideal relaxing atmosphere at the dining table for sipping on wine with friends by incorporating subtle accent lighting such as table lamps, or even by highlighting a piece of artwork on the wall.
