Pay attention to fixture height – it is important to mount your decorative fixture 32 to 36 inches above the dining room table, to allow for plenty of room and light for your guests.

Layered Lighting – your main chandelier or decorative fixture is essential, but don’t overlook the importance of adding recessed, close-to-ceiling and wall sconces to create layered lighting and minimize shadows.

Consider multiple fixtures – a grouping of pendants or small chandeliers over a longer dining room table can help you achieve a designer look. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box!

Use accent lighting – if you have wall art or décor, make sure to highlight these additions with accent lighting. Install uplighting, track lighting or wall sconces to show off your favorite pieces.
