Small dining room lighting ideas to illuminate mealtimes

A well-planned lighting scheme is one of the most important small dining room ideas for anyone serious about maximising the sense of space where they eat and entertain. Small dining room lighting ideas come laden with decorative benefits, especially now there are so many gorgeous designs in eye-catching shapes, colours and patterns to dress your dining room in style.  

Before you begin drooling over all the beautiful light fixtures available, first think about how you use your dining room. Is it a separate space used only for high days and holidays, or is it within your main living space and constantly evolving from workplace, art and crafts station to wine bar? The different light levels and flexibility required will impact your light fitting shopping list, as well as the wiring plan.
