Recessed lighting in the tray ceiling and a drum-shade light fixture illuminates this contemporary dining space. A round table takes advantage of space, because despite the fact that it doesn't take up much room, several chairs can still fit around it comfortably.
A rough-hewn wood table, in a room designed by Julia Buckingham, adds a relaxed vibe to an otherwise formal dining room, creating an inviting and warm space that encourages gatherings. The industrial steel drum light fixtures illuminate the table.
Changing out light fixtures in small spaces can make an enormous difference in how they look, feel and function. The key to a swift, successful lighting swap is choosing fixtures which will fit with existing junction boxes. For situations in which junction boxes require relocation, it's best to hire an electrician; however, keep in mind this will create somewhat of a mess due to patching holes with drywall mud and creating dust from sanding. This three-bulb nickel and acrylic fixture features a linen drum shade which diffuses the light, allowing the wall color to read more clearly.
