Creative Dining Room Lighting Blog
The dining room can often be one of the main social hubs of the household. Being the space where you host dinner parties with friends. Or perhaps just chat whilst having your tea with your family after a busy day at work and school. One of the major features that you simply NEED to get right in the dining room is the dining room lighting. With its ability to control tone and mood making it so important for this space in particular. This doesn’t have to mean that you have to sacrifice style.

On-Trend Industrial Dining Room Lights
Let’s start with one of the most popular interiors styles from the past year. Which is showing no signs of slowing down yet, the industrial look! Industrial style has taken the world by storm recently. With the robust, authentic feel that it creates resonating wonderfully in a modern household. Bringing an industrial theme into the dining room opens up a world of possibilities. But here are our top picks for the industrial dining room look:
Steamer 18 Light Industrial Pipe Style Ceiling Pendant – Rust
Up first, the 18 light Steamer pendant at Litecraft. This light incorporates a structure of robust pipework design and a retro rust finish into any décor. The piece hangs from the ceiling via a sturdy chain. Furthermore, with each of the 18 lights coming away from the central cylinder to give a wide, even coverage across the room. The bold piece looks great in any dining room décor. More so , it is sure to be a bold, eye-catching focal point for the room.
Cable Suspension Kit Ceiling Pendant – Pewter
Another industrial option, our cable kits are a simpler. More authentic choice that looks great individually or as a set, making them a versatile style of illumination that is ideal as dining room lighting. For larger dining rooms, consider an odd-numbered cluster of cable lights.
Giving a more comprehensive coverage to the wider space, however, a single pendant over the centre of a small, round dining table also works brilliantly! The black cable has a simple, modern look. With a pewter finish on the mechanical style bulb holder giving a clean urban feel to the fitting.
3 Bar Pendant Light Brooklyn Light – White
Our last industrial offering is the Brooklyn 3 light pendant in white, which brings a clean, bright look to the décor for a more upbeat feel throughout the dining room. The diner-style pendant has a minimalist design, with 3 large shades deflecting the light downwards for a more direct, purposeful shine. The metallic finish maintains a tough industrial image, however, this is given a more delicate and modern tone thanks to the white finish.

Refined Minimalistic Tones
When it comes to minimalism, there’s a fine line between simple elegance and lack of personality, so you’ll need to ensure that you keep on the right side of the boundary to avoid a dull, drab feel in the space. In the dining room, this line is pivotal, as it can be the difference between a relaxed dining experience and a busy, distracting, or boring atmosphere, so attention to detail is key.
