Need dining room lighting help

katbmacNovember 12, 2013
I have a large dining room, the current light is not center with the table and questionably the room. The light needs to go, it look like a wagon wheel....I'm thinking of multiple pendent lights. Suggestions please!!!

Multiple pendants are a great idea. You will have much better lighting than what is in the room right now--the pictures look so dark!
What kind of style are you thinking of adding? There are many, many different kinds...
Take a look around and maybe something will catch your eye!

You should consider the total wattage of the new fixture(s). Then establish how much light will be project down onto the table and into the room with the fixtures shades. Use a dimmer switch to save energy costs and balance the illumination.

Multiple Pendants are very functional and attractive but can be spendy. Consider a fixture that has both up light and down will definitely give you more light. I use Hinkley's lighting for most of my projects. They have an incredibly user friendly website that allows you to filter for your specific needs and budget. Give them a try:

Thank you! These are helpful ideas. The room is dark, the current "wagon wheel light" is the only working light. We had the wall scones removed, they were not working.
