Often a popular choice among homeowners, chandeliers are a sophisticated, elegant and classic light fixture that you can add to your dining room. Our styles for chandeliers range from traditional to contemporary, meaning you can opt for a classic crystal chandelier or a chandelier that boasts elements of iron or copper.

Pendant Lights

Versatile and beautiful in any space, pendant lights come in an array of styles and sizes that make them an excellent lighting design choice for your dining room. They are easy to install and should be installed about 30 to 35 inches above your dining room table.

For a more modern look, consider a pendant light with a lampshade feature. For a more classic look, consider a pendant light with crystal or glass features.

Track Lighting

If you’re looking for a more unique element of lighting design, opt for track lighting fixtures in your dining room. This lighting type is a softer yet more adjustable lighting option that is more commonly seen in homes with a modern, contemporary or industrial style.

You can have this type of lighting fixture installed directly into your ceiling, or you can choose track lighting that hangs down a little. Either way, we recommend installing track lighting fixtures on each side of your ceiling for a balanced lighting effect.
