Choosing the lighting for a room is a key element for decoration and will establish the tone for the style and feel of the room generated. This is the reason why determining the appropriate size for future light of your room is essential. Purchasing a light too large room, the furniture will be smaller and the room will be too shrill. Conversely, if the light from the dining room is too small, it may not emit enough light and will also be disproportionate to the room. The light of a room must be balanced with the rest of the furniture and compliment your style or repeating a particular finished decoration. If you determine the steps to light the room properly, you will have a dining area that makes guests feel welcome and invited to stay at the table.

Measure the width of your dining table. Subtract 12 inches (30.48 cm) from this number and record the result . This is the maximum width for the light of your room; if wider is likely that the table appears to be smaller than it is. For example, if your dining table is 50 inches (1.27 m) wide, then the light should have no more than 40 inches (1.02 m).

Measured between the walls of the dining room and the center of the table (or if you have a plan, just measured between the wall and the floor) to make sure there is at least 48 inches (1.22 m) of space to allow people to pass without hitting his head on the light fixture.
Measure the height of the roof if you do not know this number and scores on paper. The dining room light should hang 30 to 34 inches (76.2 to 86.36 cm) on the table for ceilings 8 feet (2.44 m), between 33 and 37 inches (83.82 and 93.98 cm ) to 9ft ceilings (2.74 m) and between 36 and 40 inches (91.44 to 101.6 cm) to 10 foot ceilings (3.05 m).
