Taking table measurements into account will allow you to determine how many and which lamps to install.

For example, the lighting of a round table does not require the installation of the same number of lamps that might be needed to illuminate a long rectangular table. Furthermore, considering the size of the table, you will be able to identify the most suitable models to play on contrasts of shapes and sizes, thus enriching the aesthetic potential of the entire area.


4 Small table? Use a single lamp or a chandelier of suitable dimensions

It is always better not to overdo it when it comes to lighting small tables. In this case, you could opt for a single design lamp for the kitchen table or choose an important chandelier , taking into consideration the size and shape of the table.
