When planning your new home, you need to think about each individual room. The dining room, for instance, will need different lighting than your living room or bathroom.
How to Choose Lighting for Your Dining Table
In your home electrical and lighting plan, note where you want your dining table to be. It is easier to have a lighting fixture in the proper place than to try to fight with your dining table after the fact. Most people want the light to be centered on the table. This means that you may not necessarily want the light centered in the room.
Not only do you need a well-lit dining room to entertain family and guests during dinner, but when you give thought to the layout of your lighting, you can choose décor that suits it.
