Modern Dining Room Chandeliers
Chandeliers are a must-have for any modern home. They provide warmth and a sense of elegance that’s hard to achieve with other lighting fixtures. There are so many different styles and designs out there, it can be hard to know which one is right for your home.
Chandeliers are not only stylish but versatile. The most popular use of a chandelier is as a focal point over the dining room table — overhead lighting makes a big difference when it comes to seeing your food. These fixtures are also key for creating a certain ambiance, so consider installing a dimmer switch along with your chandelier for even more options. Whatever your needs may be, the pros at Destination Lighting have it all.

Chandelier Lighting for the Dining Room
When deciding on the right size for your dining room chandelier, remember that there should be 2.5 inches of chandelier height per one foot in wall height. If your room is 9 feet tall, for example, then your chandelier should be 22.5 inches in height.
It’s also important to keep your table in mind, so the chandelier is scaled appropriately. If you have a round dining room table, then the chandelier should be about one third of its width. For rectangular and oval tables, it’s best to divide the width by two, then add six inches to get a sense of the chandelier’s ideal width. Make sure to leave about 32 inches of space between the table and the bottom of the chandelier to avoid feeling crowded.
The Napa Six-Light Chandelier by Design Classics Lighting has a bold and modern design that’s clean and simple. The black matte finish is sharp and stands out against the glass shades. Retro meets modern with this solid centerpiece.
