Dining Room Lighting
It may sound strange but food and light compliment each other very well. Light is especially important over the dining table as the food often looks more delicious under this light. But style is also important, and you could also consider feature lighting for this purpose.
How high should the pendant lamp hang above the dining table? The 80:20 rule.
It is important that the pendant light does not dazzle, and that is why height plays an integral role. If in doubt, it makes sense to choose a height-adjustable light. You can use 80cm +/- 20cm above the table as a guideline for placing the light.
How can you adjust the height of a pendant light?
The easiest way to shorten the cable is to pull the light into the ceiling cover (also called canopy). Depending on how much space there is, you can accommodate more or fewer cables. But be careful as not all rise and fall pendant lights have the option of this simple shortening.
Never cut the cables or suspensions of your pendant light. This puts you in danger and your warranty will expire.
If you want to vary the height of your pendant lighting once it's installed, we would recommend our rise and fall pendant light.
