Whether you use your dining room every day or just when entertaining, it’s important to consider the atmosphere you want to create. Do you want the room to ooze elegance and style, or would you prefer a forum for conversations with friends? Select the ideal dining room lighting to create a comfortable environment, perfect for you.
In Denmark, we traditionally hang pendant lamps close to our dining zone, as this creates an intimate atmosphere at the dining table. We recommend that small pendants hang somewhere between 55 cm and 62 cm from the bottom of the lamp to the table surface, and that larger pendants hang somewhere between 60 cm and 70 cm from the bottom of the lamp to the table surface. It is obviously important that you test the height at which the lamp hangs above the table before cutting the cable to length.
Whether you have a small or a large dining room, or a dining space that is integrated with your living spaces, it’s possible to accentuate different areas of the room. Hanging a ceiling pendant above the table will provide a cosy dining environment, while placing a table lamp on a sideboard or in a windowsill will allow you to accentuate design features and create a soft light in that area of the room.
