Comfort and convenience of modern apartment depends on the lighting. In addition to natural lighting, a great role in this belongs to artificial lighting. Correct lighting is not only coziness and comfort, it is the appropriate atmosphere in your home, the optimal conditions for work and rest, a good mood. To create artificial lighting apply lamps of various types and different functional purposes. With the help of lamps you can give the interior of the room a peculiar style and appearance.
To create coziness and comfort in the dining room, not only the choice of suitable furniture and accessories is important, lighting plays a special role. Proper lighting of the dining room contributes to the creation of a calm, relaxed atmosphere during the meal.
The appearance and location of the fixtures should be selected in such a way that they cope with the main task – the selection of the table from the general background of the interior. The general light in the dining room may not be at all. If in other rooms such lighting is basic, then in the dining room the main role is played by local lighting. The number of luminaires and their location depend on the area of the room, the location of the table and other pieces of furniture.
There are several basic lighting options for the living room:
The first option is classic, when the table is in the center of the dining room, and the lamp is traditionally attached to the ceiling above the table. In the dining area of the dining room, a single lamp is usually suspended from the ceiling above the table. The lampshade can be metal, cloth, thread. When preparing to repair the dining room, it is important to determine the location for the table to properly conduct the wires with electricity.
The second option is if the table is not in the center (off-center or near the wall), then you can use spotlights, high floor lamps or “floating lights” (such light is created by light sources on movable levers and conductive busbars).
The level at which lamps and lamps are installed in the dining room depends on the power of their lamps. If the light source is weak, then it should be closer to the countertop.
An oblong shaped dining table can be illuminated with a few small lamps. With this option, you should make sure that the light from them does not hit the guests in the eyes. Often in such cases, use pendant lamps, directed down to the table, with a small lampshade and a small power.
In classical interiors, among all possible types of lighting, the chandelier occupies the leading position – beautiful and luxurious. Chandeliers will not only give light, performing their immediate function, but also act as a catchy accent in the interior design of the dining room.
In addition, you can pay attention to dimmers (dimmers of the lamps, which allow you to create in the room a variety of light scenarios), which recommend to equip all fixtures. Thanks to this choice, you can create a nice twilight for a romantic dinner or bright lighting during a family dinner.
Fans of original ideas will certainly like such lighting options in the desk, like chandeliers with candelabra and light bulbs in the form of electric candles, suspended chandeliers-pedestals with wax candles or their decorative analogs.
The dining room is the “heart” of the whole house, where guests are received, dinner, they gather in the evening for spiritual conversations, and with the right choice of lighting, the atmosphere of meals and gatherings can be made even more cozy and warm.
