A chandelier is the focal point of the dining room.
Suspended over the dining table, it serves as a
decorative element that complements the style of
your furnishings. When the chandelier is dimmed, the
quality of the light simulates the mood of the soft and
warm light emitted by candlelight.
If the chandelier is equipped with a downlight it can
provide excellent task lighting for the table and accent
lighting for the centerpiece.
Recessed or track lighting provides ambient lighting
while enabling you to highlight decorative elements
throughout the room. A grouping of four recessed
downlights around the perimeter of the room
supplements the light from the chandelier, while
providing accent lighting for your tableware. You can
add sparkle to your crystal and silverware by using low-voltage recessed fixtures with halogen or LED bulbs
mounted on either side of the chandelier.
A buffet or sideboard can be flanked with wall sconces
on either side to create a strong focal point. Choose
fixtures that complement the style of the chandelier.
Art and other decorative objects can be accented with
recessed downlights installed in the ceiling above.
A painting can be dramatically illuminated with
recessed adjustable accent fixtures. Obtain assistance
from your local ALA showroom in the selection of the
fixtures best-suited for this purpose.
A china cabinet, breakfront, hutch or wall niche can
become a showplace for your prized collectibles by
installing low-voltage or LED strips either under the
shelves or on the
sides of the cabinet.
