Consider How Much Light You Need

The chandelier is only one part of the lighting plan. Recessed lights can add extra wattage if you use the space for projects and homework as well as candlelit dinners. Perimeter lighting, such as sconces or buffet lamps, can add even more illumination. In most cases, it's best to put chandeliers on a dimmer switch, so the intensity of the lighting is controllable.
