A mirror is a small room's best friend. It opens up space like nothing else and reflects light. Use strategically placed mirrors on the wall. Using more than one might be an even better idea. Simple window treatments help keep fussiness away. Ornate swags and valances could be distracting and too overpowering in any small space. Simple panels can do the job nicely. If you need more privacy, layer with blinds.
Open up a smaller space by using colors that provide a background that makes your space look bigger. Do not clutter it with unnecessary decor, but mirrors or other reflective surfaces might be helpful. There are many options for dining room lighting: chandeliers, pendants, sconces or floor lamps that come in many different styles from cutting edge contemporary to nostalgic traditional.Don't forget candles for those special occasions. Whatever source you choose for lighting, make sure it has a dimmer switch, so that you can adjust the amount of light you need.
The general rule for hanging dining room chandeliers is that the bottom of the fixture should hang between 30" and 36" from the tabletop assuming you have an 8' ceiling.
Most dining rooms are illuminated by a chandelier. Whether your taste is traditional, contemporary, or something else entirely, it's altogether likely that you'll have a chandelier hanging over your dining room table. The question is how high should you hang it? When hanging a dining room chandelier it's important to make sure that it's low enough to light up the eating area without interfering with the sight line of the people seated at the table.
