    Dining room lighting should be soft and warm, making mealtime pleasant and inviting for family and guests. Harsh, bright lighting is better suited to a cafeteria than a comfortable home dining space. Match your fixture to your home's design style and add sources of ambient light to provide an alluring glow. Don't forget dimmers, which allow you to adjust lighting to the meal, whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a family dinner for 12.

    Search for "swag lights." They plug into the wall and hang from a ceiling chain. Swag kits are also available to to change a hardwire hanging light into a swag plugin.
