Once you have selected the right type of pendant light, the next step is to determine the appropriate size and location. The size of the pendant light should be in proportion to the size of the dining table and dining room. Here are some recommendations for the size of pendant lights based on the size of the dining room:
- For dining rooms that are around 10-15 square meters or have a table that is 1.4-1.6 meters long, a pendant light with a diameter of 60cm is recommended.
- For dining rooms that are around 15-20 square meters or have a table that is 1.6-1.8 meters long, a pendant light with a diameter of 70cm is recommended.
- For dining rooms that are around 20-30 square meters or have a table that is longer than 1.8 meters, a pendant light with a diameter of 80cm is recommended.
The height of the pendant light is also important to consider. If it is hung too high, it can affect the lighting, and if it is hung too low, it can be a nuisance for diners. Ideally, the height of the pendant light should be just right to create a cohesive and inviting atmosphere in the dining room. A good rule of thumb is to hang the pendant light 60-110cm above the table surface, depending on the height of the table, which is usually around 75cm.
When it comes to lighting for your dining room, it is important to choose a color temperature that creates a warm and comfortable ambiance. Warm white or soft yellow light (around 2500-3000K) can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, while cool white or daylight (around 4000K) can provide a bright and refreshing feel. The color rendering index (CRI), which measures the ability of a light source to reveal the true colors of objects, should be at least 80Ra to ensure that the colors of your food and surroundings look their best.
