Design Tops

Q – How do I determine the proper size chandelier for over a dining room table?
A – Here, as in the foyer, the dimensions of the room dictate the width (diameter) of the chandelier.  If that doesn’t appear to fit because of the size of your table, use ½ the table width for the chandelier’s diameter.
The bottom of the chandelier should be no lower than 30 inches above the tabletop.
Q – When should I use a dimmer switch?
A – Although dimmers can be used in every room, we put this question here, because the dining room will be the location of many varying activities.  Intimate dinner party?  Dim the lights.  Children working at the table on their homework?  Bring up the wattage!
Q – Will a chandelier be enough light?
A – Here again, you should make sure the chandelier has enough wattage (based on the formula in question #1).  If you’re not comfortable with the amount of light, you can add sconces, portable lamps or recessed lights to add more light and ambience.
Q – How do I highlight areas of special interest such as wall art or items inside a breakfront or China cabinet?
A – Recessed or track lighting can focus beams of light onto wall art objects.  Inside a breakfront or China cabinet, you can use low voltage Kichler Cabinet Lighting to provide the proper lighting.  The top and bottom of those pieces can be lit with Kichler’s Linear Lighting.
