you can add floor (and table) feature lighting to warm up your space and illuminate some of the more charming parts of your home.A table lamp near a houseplant helps brighten up a dark corner. Or. create a comfy reading nook with an overhanging floor lamp and an overstuffed chair. You don't need to change out fixtures. and you can still swap out feature lighting whenever you want to try something different.
Consider statement lighting.The simplest way to spruce up your dining room on a budget is to trade out your basic light fixture for a statement lighting feature. From large pendants to unique chandeliers. there's no wrong aesthetic. You'll want to choose a piece that feels authentic to your sense of style.
