Lighting A Dinette Area

Ivy Design Tiffany Style Hanging LampA decorative pendant or a fixture like a Chloe ivy design tiffany style hanging lamp with a down light does the job nicely. If installed with a dimmer switch, you can soften the light for entertaining and brighten the light for homework.

This type of light should be mounted so the pendant is at least 2 ½ feet above the table. You want at least 100 watts of light for this area. A tiffany hanging lamp with two 60 watt light bulbs meets these standards.

Replacing a ceiling fixture is a task that you need not fear. You have only three wires to contend with, two live wires and one ground wire. As long as you turn off the power to the room containing the fixture, this can be a do-it-yourself project.
