No matter the menu, your dining experience will be less than its best if your lighting doesn’t set the right mood. For better light, first consider your fixtures. A pendant light positioned over the dining table is a good bet. Measure 30 inches from the tabletop; that's where you'll want the bottom of your pendant light to hang. Next, take care to choose the right bulb. For a cozy, intimate setting choose soft white light rather than cool or bright white bulbs. Also, consider adding a dimmer switch so instant ambiance is only a click away.
