Your Guide to Finding the Perfect Dining Room Light
how much light does a dining room need? ~ Multiply the square footage of your room times 1.5 for the recommended total ambient wattage. So for a 15’ x 18’ room, 15 x 18 x 1.5 = 405 watts. That’s the equivalent of ten 40-watt bulbs, rather bright to dine by, which is why most designers swear by dimmers.
