Whether you use your dining room every night to enjoy dinner with your family or you only find yourself in the space for special occasions, having a show stopping light fixture suspended from the ceiling, over top of the table is a design must. We found some incredible dining room lighting styles that we had to share.
If you’re an owner of a round dining room table or just looking for a fixture that’s a little different, you should consider a Star-burst light fixture for a modern and daring look. Star-burst fixtures send beams of light in different directions, creating a flattering and radiant ambiance. You can find this type of fixture in a variety of different styles.
A drum-style fixture illuminates the space above and below, not directly out and sideways. Drum fixtures are chic and formal and depending on the style and colour, they can make the room have a fun vibe or a more sophisticated feel. Both opaque and transparent materials are used to design these lights, decide what look you want and go from there.
Irregular and skewed shapes create spontaneity and flare. These light fixtures are modern and fascinating with their uneven look but it’s what makes them charming and unique. We love this style but unfortunately it does not always output much brightness. Before you purchase a light fixture like this, find out how much it will illuminate the surrounding space. You and your guests need to be able to see what you’re eating and drinking.
Fun Flush Mount
Flush-mount light is the standard lighting that is put into your home by the builders and it’s usually used because it’s inexpensive and adds little to no character to a room. Forget boring flush-mount and get creative. If your dining room has low ceilings, look into fun and non-traditional flush-mounts for an interesting juxtaposition to the room.
Don’t be afraid to get a little wild when looking for a dining room light fixture. If you come across a fixture that is different, speaks to your inner child and you love it for your dining room, what’s holding you back? As long as the piece casts enough light for your guests and works well in the space, nothing should stop you from jumping out of the box. This photo is a great example, it fits perfectly in the space and it’s a fascinating and playful piece.
