Dining room ceiling lights are more and more popular, especially in open plan areas. Dining room ceiling lights are a good idea when you might need to move the table out of the way for a big party, or if you don't know exactly where your table is going to go. In that case, think about using a ceiling light with an asymmetrical shape. They're also useful if you don't want to block the view of your garden but still want a pretty light instead of downlights. Consider your kitchen pendants when deciding on your dining room ceiling light. Dining room ceiling lights should be pretty and look good from the bottom, casting flattering light downwards. 

Top Tip: Try to get dimmable lights so you can set the right mood.
