The chandelier or droplight above the dining table is not always the only luminaire in the room - the designer actually recommends not using a single light source - but it may be the most obvious and has the biggest impact.Interior designer Raychel Wade said,“The table pendant really centered the space and provided it with a focus,like a kitchen pendant,for counters and islands.” At a practical level,they can provide direct light to the area that needs it.
Your table lighting may not break the space,but it can make room.The following hints and considerations from the designer should help ensure that it is the latter."you can use this to transform a room even if you don't have a big budget,"said Wade,owner and head of Raychel Wade Design.
Considerations for designers
Form shape.Although the shape and size of your table does not have to determine your lamps,but they can help you make a selection.“It really depends on personal choice,but I recommend using round or hexagonal or bowl-shaped clamps for round tables and square or rectangular or oval fixtures for rectangular tables,” says architectural lighting designer Randall Whitehead.
You can also play scale and multiple."if this is a long table,we will see more double lamp installations that look nice and provide balanced light.If it's a smaller table,consider a larger pendant,as long as it doesn't impede functionality," interior designer Suzanne Manlove,lead designer said.Arlington home interior design."No one wants to put them on light,no matter how beautiful it is."
Where do you want the light to go,how bright you want it to be.The type of lamp and the number of fixtures will affect your table lighting,but the fixture itself will also work.Drum chandeliers and lanterns on all sides produce more subtle and diffuse lighting than chandeliers,which make the lights more like spotlights.
The ceiling.Flat ceilings are relatively simple when hanging lamps,but sloping ceilings can be more challenging.A fixed device with a flexible chain or rope,rather than a bar,can make suspension easier."If it's a pole,make sure it can swing straight," says lighting designer Nancy McCoy,owner and designer of McCoy Light Design.
Designers in this dining area of Utah want a stylish look,but still want space to feel warm and textured,including using the metal pendant."It's made of aluminum,but it feels like it's cast,and the rope attachment is leather," said Lauren Bald,interior designer at cityhomeCollege."These qualities together bring warmth and touch,so that the overall modern design will not feel cold."
