Good Questions: Lighting Help for Dim Dining Room?

Pin it button big

Hi AT! My girlfriend and I have been struggling with the lighting in our dining room. The chandelier we have now directs light down onto the table, creating a kind of cave of light, leaving the rest of the room feeling a bit dark. Lamps are difficult for two reasons: only one outlet (to the right in the photo) and the room is a little small. We are considering a different overhead light and/or sconces. Our tastes lean towards MCM but we already have a modern white, globe-type light hanging in the back room off the dining room. And, of course, we ain't too spendy! Thanks, Nick
