7 Lighting Ideas to Brighten Up Your Favorite Dining Space

Dining room lighting is designed to offer a blend of both form and function, bringing brightness and openness to a space, while imbuing it with distinct style and design that doesn’t overpower. We’ve put together a selection of our top lighting picks to anchor your favorite dining area in a variety of covet-worthy styles.

Dining Room Chandeliers

Chandeliers don’t have to be dripping in crystals or have a gold finish to make an impact. Simple structure and a sizable silhouette can just as easily fill a space with elegance and allure. When selecting a chandelier, be sure to match the style of your lighting to the style of your space. A wooden, beaded chandelier works perfectly for a farmhouse or coastal space, while a stunning globe-shaped chandelier is ideal for modern or contemporary schemes.

Dining Room Pendant Lights

Shape is important when choosing overhead lighting, but doesn’t necessarily have to be defined by the shape of your dining table. For a cohesive, concentric look, choose a round, cloth-shaded pendant to match your round table and pull your room together. Likewise, for long, rectangular tables, a linear design or two round or square pendants paired together offers ample brightness and fills your overhead space nicely.
